Crappy Days deserve cute, funny cards

Unity Stamps created the best stamp for a friend who's had a bad day.

I laughed out loud when I saw this clever stamp from Unity Stamps. How many times have you wished for a "cheeky" card sentiment like this one?

Make 'em laugh!

“The little hearts and doodles on the toilet paper roll are just perfect.”

I started out with Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and stamped the image and sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black premium dye ink. I use it because it's Copic Marker friendly and gives a rich, black image. I use a stamping tool like the Misti to make sure I get a perfect stamp every time.

I used Copic markers to color the image and the little hearts underneath the sentiment. It was so quick. Just a couple of neutral grey colors to shade and shape the toilet paper roll and some fun primary colors for the hearts. I didn't pay attention to the exact Copic colors I used, but you should pick your own colors to make your card. I grabbed some

Tim Holtz Distress Ink and sponged Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch around the card face to highlight the center image. I used the darker blue just on the corners with a Ranger mini ink blending tool. I adhered the white card front onto a pre-made grey colored A2 card with 3M foam tape to give it some dimension.

And that's it! I was done in just a few minutes. I can imagine the face of my friend when they open this card. I hope it brings them as much joy to receive it as it brought me to create it. Even if you don't have this exact stamp, I'll bet you can come up with a great idea to share with someone. Take just a few minutes to create and share a laugh.
