Peachy Keen LFIF Challenge - So Punny

THE CHALLENGE
Puns are fun, and even more perfect when paired with Peachy Keen Faces! This week, create a project using your PKS faces along with any pun you'd like.

What exactly is a pun? 
A play on words, either on different senses of the same word or on the similar sense or sound of different words.

The PKS Design Team has created some fantasic Punny cards!  Check them out at the challenge blog HERE.  Play along on the challenge for a chance to win the Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment stamp set!  Guidelines and linking are at the challenge site.  

Peachy Keen has a great Christmas in July sale going on this weekend. Check it out HERE.

My little cow card was created using the Peachy Keen Critter Faces Medium PK-754 stamp set.  The greeting is from My Pink Stamper.  Instructions are below the picture.

Udderly Amazing Instructions:

For the cow, punch the following pieces using Stampin' Up! punches:
  • 1-3-8" Circle in shimmery white - HEAD
  • Extra Large Oval in shimmery white - BODY
  • Modern Label in Shimmery white - NECK
  • (2) medium Boho Blossoms in early espresso - HAIR
  • (6) small flowers from Itty Bitty Shapes set in early espresso - SPOT
  • (1) wide petal from Blossoms Petal in early espresso (cut in half) - EARS
  • (2) 3/4" Circle in black - HOOVES
  • 1" Circle with 1-3/8" Circle in crumb cake (punch half of 1" circle, line up larger circle punch over top of punched hole and punch a moon shape) - HORNS
  • Decorative Label in crumb cake - SIGN 
Assembly of cow:
  • Sponge the edges of horns and sign with espresso ink.  
  • Sponge edges of hair with white craft ink.  
  • Stamp face with black ink.  Stipple or sponge regal rose ink onto nose.  Color tongue with rose marker and inside of mouth with black marker.  
  • Glue 2 spots onto head and cut away excess.  
  • Glue ears onto head.  Attach horns to back of head with dimensional.  
  • Attach head to neck with dimensional.  Glue spot onto neck.  
  • Glue neck onto back of body and glue spots onto body.
  • Clip a wedge out of each 3/4" black circle and cut off a little bit at the bottom to create hooves. 
  • Stamp greeting on sign with espresso ink.  Attach hooves to each side of sign with dimensionals.  Attach sign to body with dimensionals.
Card Assembly:
  • Cut 4" x 10" piece of early espresso card stock.  Fold in half and place onto Stampin' Up! Bigz Top Note Die.  Place the center fold of the card about 1/2" from the end of the die and cut.  You should now have one long piece that looks like 2 connected top note dies.
  • Score at the center of one top note end as shown.  Embellish the other end.  I embossed a piece of crumb cake card stock with the square lattice embossing folder and then cut half of a top note die shape.  Cut away outside edge along perforated line.  Sponge edges with espresso ink and glue onto card base.
  • For card top, emboss a piece of cherry cobbler card stock with wood grain (or other) embossing folder (I used Tim Holtz folder) then die cut Top Note.  Die cut an espresso top note piece.  Clip away outside perforated edges on cherry cobbler top note and glue onto espresso top note.  Lightly sponge surface with espresso ink.
  • Attach card top to base as shown in picture (tape shown on upper portion of scored end).
  • Tie cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon around base of card.
