Dads Pegboard cu 06420
Weekly-Favorite
Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge(WT536) is Get Grungy! I think a tool pegboard would be grungy enough, but I also grunged up background quite a bit.
Dads Pegboard 06415
To make the large bg, I glued some heavy duty aluminum foil to card stock & embossed it. I covered the entire piece with white acrylic paint & after it dried, I sponged on some Distress inks then sanded some areas down. The pegboard was die cut out of dp & the edges were sponged before I attached all the tools. I also used foil covered c/s for the tool heads. A couple of screw head brads were attached to the greeting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

 Welcome to part two of the January challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is Buttons.  And for the Design Team, we’ve added the twist of using the chalkboard technique with the buttons.You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player. The sale of the week is Free Shipping on all continental US orders $10 and up, good through 1/22/14.

For my Sunny Chalkboard card,  I stamped the wonderful quote with white chalk ink onto black card stock. I used a white gel pen to highlight the frame and letter K then used a sponge and a very light touch to add some “chalk dust” to the background. The half sun image was stamped on white, colored with Copics and I trimmed around the rays to insert the chalkboard underneath. The black grid layer is a left over from a painted grid technique using white acrylic paint and drywall mesh. A few die cut buttons were stacked and added to the corner. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT430), we are to feature music and/or instruments. I went w/ the music as these are words from “America the Beautiful”. I’m still hearing the song every time I look at my card.

The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I love Patriotic cards and images and there’s nothing finer than the old red, white & blue. This card was fairly quick and easy. I cut a section of designer paper that included the flag and attached it on a navy blue layer. The eagle and musical sentiment were stamped w/ denim ink and colored w/ Copics. I die cut it using my Out of the Box Nestie technique using a Spellbinders deckled rectangle. With the die in place, I sponged a little antique linen ink on it. This was a left over piece of vanilla c/s and I think it must have been around a long time because when I removed the die, I noticed some fine cracking when I bent it. I kind of liked it and to me, it went w/ the distressed look so I used it. I added a few stamped & punched out stars next to it. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
