Operation Write Home Animal Pun Blog Skip


Hello! and welcome to the next stop on Operation Write Home's Animal Pun Blog Skip.  You should be arriving from Sandy's blog I Can't Stop Embellishing.  If you haven't, click the blog badge above to take you back to the main blog list at Stars and Stamps so you don't miss any of the great cards from our skip!

Today's skip is featuring three new Stampers Best stamp sets benefiting OWH. With this launch, Stamper's Best is offering an awesome deal of buy two sets and get one free!  Who could resist such a fabulous offer for some super cute images and sentiments too?  To go to the Stampers Best store, click this LINK and help support OWH while getting some great stamps for a great price!

I love all three of the new sets, but I had so much fun with the turtle set that I made three different cards and then couldn't decide which card to post, so I'm posting all three cards!

My first card is very clean and simple.
Recollections chevron paper trimmed out.  Copics E31/E57/E59/Y21/YG61/YG63

This next card is pretty similar to the first, but I just had to share it anyway!
Recollections dot papers, Sizzix alphabet die, Copics E31/E57/E59/Y21/YG61/YG63

My third card was a lot of fun to make.  When I saw this little turtle's toes I wanted to paint them pink!
Paper Pizazz striped paper, Cuttlebug embossing folder Hugs & Kisses, Splitcoast Stampers sketch 367, Recollections flowers, Viva Pearl Pen, Copics BG10/R83/RV34/R85/R81/E31.E57E59

I also have some candy for one lucky commenter on this blog post.  Simply leave your comment by midnight Monday, March 11th and I will randomly draw a name to win this stamp set from My Favorite Things.  The winner will be posted on my blog Tuesday morning.


Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you got a kick out of seeing my cards.  For more fabulous inspiration, Marianne from Petunia's Paper Passion is the next stop for the skip.  Enjoy!

  3. All three are different but fun takes on this stamp! I think my favorite is the first with the zig zags - you make that turtle move! Though the pink toenails are a close second - my granddaughters would love this card!
