Card for my Fungi!

Hey everyone! I'm here with my first Amber Ink creation for this month. I'll have five more to share over the coming weeks.

I am a sucker for a good pun stamp, and this one definitely fit the bill! I totally had to read it twice (something to do with how us kiwis pronounce fungi, not my super slow brain!) and when it clicked I laughed for a good few minutes.

I just knew Shan would get a kick out of this stamp so I HAD to make him a card with it. He'll often talk to me in "stamp" language - he'll say 'owl love you' - that kinda of thing. I'm happy to report he loved it as much as I thought he would!

Cute right? love that stamp! In fact, I had so much colouring it up one night I came very close to burning the lasagne (it was ok despite the extra 20 mins in the oven!)

I kept the design clean and simple. I've been looking for a reason to use that toadstool embossing folder! Shanan said this was one of his favourite cards ever, I sooooo didn't tell him the image was 50c! YUP... 50c! You can grab it here.

 Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What is $20 worth of lasagna when it comes to a .50 stamp and priceless amounts of talent and fun? Small price. I have to admit I thought Amber had lost her mind when she made this stamp - I'm like "that's cute dear" and it took someone else to explain it to me. Dim. Love your hint of toadstools and cheery coloring. I like Shanan ;) He sounds like a fungi.

  2. Oh, I love it! I think this stamp is just too much fun! Your card is incredibly darling! Glad to hear I am not the only one who nearly ruins dinner for the love of coloring! ;)
