Sneak Peek - Pun Intended - Light Bulb - Hostess Stamp Set

Today we are still taking a look at the new Hostess stamp set "Pun Intended" but with the focus on the Edison Light Bulb this time. With a light bulb I found myself gravitating to yellow. There is nothing saying it has to be yellow, a person could choose any colour they wanted to. But I stuck to the traditional yellow.

These are the three cards I made.

For this first card, I must say that I cased this card from one of my favorite Stampin' Up Demonstrators, Kylie Bertucci (Australia). It is such a striking CAS card, I couldn't resist. I did make a few slight changes like a wider yellow border and putting the bulb on the right rather than the left.

In the collage below you see the inside of the card, and the bottom right photo shows how the second/top cut out light bulb is glued on at the top of the bulb but popped up toward the bottom of the bulb.

The next card, again has a lot of yellow (So Saffron DSP Stack) paired with Night of Navy rather than black. Around the banner area I sponged on some So Saffron before mounting the three 1 1/4" wide banners.

The Whisper White banner background is stamped using one of the Gorgeous Grunge stamps. I love the little circle cut out on the side where I popped up the little heart from this stamp set.

The Circle mat is created using a scallop punch, punched twice to get this edge effect by rotating it slightly for the second punch.

The collage below shows the inside of the card along with a couple of details of the card.

The third of this light bulb series focuses on masking to get multiple images stamped, playing on the sentiment. Once the archival black ink dried, I was able to use a sponge with Daffodil Delight (wishing I had more Sponge Daubers so that I could get the glow better, but I just had the sponges).

LOL! I can't help but think of Disney with the black, red, and yellow! But the card is about love (red) and black goes well with red, and the yellow is the colour of light of course, so...

The collage below, once again, shows a few of the details.

It's amazing to the Edison style light bulb come back, not only in home decor, but in arts and crafts too. Well that's it for the light bulb cards. Tomorrow will come the bees!

In the mean time, happy stamping! Oh, and remember there are only four days left to get anything on your wish list from the retiring products....
