I had so much fun making funny cards yesterday and had so many more ideas that I decided to make an even 10 cards to send to my friend, Beth (YT: Bethsscrapbookroom), for her challenge in support of young adults with multiple sclerosis.  Again I used the Diemond Dies kitchen utensils die set for all of the cards.  If you are making any purchases at Diemond Dies, please remember to use the coupon code: thankskristina for an extra 10% off your entire order and free worldwide shipping on orders of $35 or more.

20150212_121759You can’t pass up the opportunity to switch “wish” for “wisk” when you are making up puns.  I made the silly birthday card by coloring up a cake stamp from the Fiskars Birthday Party stamp set with Distress Markers in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.  I also used those inks to do a little water coloring to create a base for the cake to sit on.  To add a kind of festive confetti thrown into the air feeling (as well as connect the pink and black from the cake and whisks), I also splattered Worn Lipstick, Pumice Stone, and Black Soot onto the card with a wet paint brush.  Just adding the whisk dies illustrates the pun sentiment, “Whisking You a Happy Birthday.”

I’m a 70s baby and grew up rockin’ to 80s tunes, like Devo’s “Whip It” and Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” So when I first saw the whisk die I knew that I had to use it with lyrics from one of these songs. This “Whip it. Whip it good” card could just as easily been captioned with “Beat it. Just beat it.”

20150212_123523I just love that whisk die so I decided to highlight the delicate lines of it in this next card.  I saw the idea in google images and just made it my own by embellishing the spoon with a plastic mustache, top hat and bow tie and the spatula with a red rose. It’s a little goofy, but I thought it would be a good card to send when someone wants to send a note of encouragement about everyone having a special something about them. 🙂  The sentiment reads: “He might not be the handsomest or prettiest, but Whisk has great hair!”

20150212_123553The small card with the damask pattern base was super simple but may be considered a little crude by some. If you are one of those folks, I apologize. However I thought on certain occasions this “WT [fork]” card would be just the right thing to send.

20150212_121918My favorite of all these CAS cards is the super simple one that includes a reference to a famous Star Wars quote (yes, I’m a geek at heart). The line of 5 forks with the sentiment, “May the forks be with you” is such a horrible pun, but I love it! To add some visual allusions to the movie I also added some pale pink pearlescent sequins and silver sequin stars. I thought this would be a good card for someone fighting multiple sclerosis to give or receive.  It’s also a great all-occasion kind of card that I know I’ll be making again. 🙂

The following is a video share of these cards:
