FATHER'S DAY...

With several major holidays and special events on the horizon, I've spent extra time in my craft room stamping up a storm. Here's a rugged and masculine card I made for Father's Day...

Father's Day

Note the realistic screw head. I used the 1/2 Circle Punch on Brushed Silver Cardstock, then scored the top with the Simply Scoring Tool and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. It totally looks real doesn't it...

Father's Day2

I positioned the sign a little crooked on purpose...

Father's Day3

Please pardon the fact that I used a stamp from the Delightful Dozen set that retired last year. It was perfect for this layout and I couldn't help myself.

HELLO...

Hello!  I used the Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock today as a reminder that it will be retiring from our color lineup in a few short weeks...

Four You

Sort of looks pink, but has a little peachy tint...

Punch a 1/4" hole as shown and thread your ribbon through...

ADVENTURE BOUND...

I only purchased one package of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack, but I intend to order a couple more. The paper is divine. It includes grasses, bricks, trees, water, rocks, logs, bark, plaids and more. We are approaching the date when the current Annual Catalog retires (June 2nd), and I have a few more things on my need-to-order list. How about you?

To emphasize the space between both trees, one tree is behind the Whisper White Cardstock with a Stampin' Dimensional as a spacer. The second tree also has a dimensional behind it. The Dimensionals are 1/16" thick which makes the trees 1/8" apart. Here's close up view for visual learners like me...

HEXAGON FUN...

I love designing with my punches and used 3 on this card. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch is the first to be noticed, and the Word Window Punch is obvious too. The Hexagon Punch shape is a little more subtle and simply looks like printed paper at first glance...

To highlight the HEXAGON shape,

I also used the Honeycomb Hexagon Embossing Folder...

SPECIAL DAY...

Remember how Donnie and Marie used to sing "It's a Little Bit Country and a Little Bit Rock-n-Roll?" (I guess you have to be my age to remember that far back!) All that to say, this card is a little bit simple and a little bit it-will-do... But someone will like it!
