Stampin' Up! Pun Fun Retiring Set

Today's "Design of the Day" features dancing hippos and uses the "Pun Fun" stamp set from Stampin' Up!

This retiring set was one of my first Stampin' Up purchases and has been so fun to work with.  In this card I cut out the hippos and used a different saying at the bottom.  Cutting out parts of stamped images allows you more versatility and give you even more options when designing projects.

  • Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Whisper White Smooth Card Stock
  • Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, and Concord Crush Inks
  • Blender Pen
  • Scallop Oval Punch
  • Retired Ribbon from the Clearance Rack and Retired Greetings Stamp
