A Bloody Good Joke

Hello, hello! Franz and I are back with a new card. I have been feeling a bit stifled creatively and so, as I often do when this feeling hits, I turned to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog for inspiration.

Their current challenge is ‘J is for Joke’ and you can check it out here.

This card was inspired by this image as well as Carrie by Stephen King.

I started out with the Peonies stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh. I stamped and colored two of the blossoms and die cut them out.

(Many thanks to my friend Inez for sending me this beautiful stamp & die set. I am such a lucky mammal!)

I used my beloved Block Party Alphas from Ink Road Stamps to spell out PMS in a deep, blood red ink. Then I fired up good ole Franz.

Wait. I cannot call him good ole Franz. He’s too much of an arse. I fired up the big jerk, Franz, and created my sentiment strips.

You don’t know Franz?! Sorry. Here’s his Glamour photo.

I also used my Block Party Alphas to create the inside of the card. I’ll show you that in a bit. I used a vibrant, blood red ink there as well.

I popped my Peonies up on some dimensional foam adhesive after stamping some leaves on the card front.

Here’s the outside:

And here’s the inside:

Thanks so much for stopping by. Make sure you head on over to the Sisterhood blog and tell them Franz sent you.

Until next time,

Eggs, yolk, a bloody good joke,
