I'll admit that I had no clue what this Cowbell set was all about. I asked my husband if he knew the significance of it and he pointed me to the Saturday Night Live skit. In pop culture terms, it basically means a remedy or something everything needs more of. I created two cards, the first of which uses the stamp set in its original format. I added a little smile from the Creepy Cute stamp set to give the cowbell personality. ;)
For the second card, I wanted to show the set's versatility so I used a Versamarker to create the little arches that a cheese grater would have. Then I painstakingly masked the letters from the sentiments and created my own word "cheese". The apple and adorable mouse are from Into the Woods, which was showcased by the design team on Monday.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments and images for quick and easy watercolouring with distress inks, which is my new addiction! The patterned papers are from a retired Halloween paper pad but I've linked to current seasonal papers below. You can pretty much substitute anything in place of the cowbell - cake, coffee and presents - by mixing and matching stamp sets!
