Archive for the ‘Masculine/Father’s Day’ Category

For today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT735), we are to have grass on our cards..hand drawn, die cut, stamped..doesn’t matter. That’s pretty easy! All my grass was drawn in w/ Copics.

In fact, there’s only 1 image on this CAS card. The gnome w/ the partial tree. I added all the grass, bushes, sky & leaves w/ Copics. This little guy really looks like he’s sorting things out, doesn’t he? My theory is he’s thinking over ways to add a new room onto his tree house. I put together the greeting from 2 different ones, then added the die cut G at the beginning. The edges of the card front were trimmed w/ a corner rounder to match the rounded rectangle die cut of the panel.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC693), we’re off to Pottery Barn. I was inspired by a couple of nautical images, THIS & THIS. And since I used the colors from this week’s Color Challenge (CC730), I’m linking to that, as well. 

My little porthole style window scene is entirely made up of die cuts using some wonderful new dies from Rubbernecker. I die cut all the items then put them together, mixing the colors for the lighthouse & sailboat. You can really get an idea of the dimension in the pic below. I really wish we had more sunny days so I could take more like this.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I’ve fallen a little behind on my posting & here are 2 cards I made for Dare to Get Dirty Challenges & also the Inspiration & Featured Stamper Challenges. For all the details of the DTGD challenges, go HERE…but you’ll need to be a Fan Club member.  

This first one was for the Inspiration Challenge (IC662) &.THIS & THIS were my inspirations. I loved the palm trees in the first, and the colors in the second. And, I used a technique from TLC698, gel plate impressionism. Basically, you put a gel plate into your Misti, ink it up w/ Distress oxide inks, mist w/ alcohol (the rubbing kind, lol), stamp your image on top w/ dye ink, then place your card stock on top of the gel plate. So that’s what I did. The colors move around & mix a bit & the silhouette isn’t quite as sharp as it would be, but the overall look is pretty nice. After it dried, I added the seagulls & a little white highlighting on the palms. Here’s the inside.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Palm Tree Line Seaside Dock Sending Sunshine (inside: Sun Shine On You )
Paper: Staples 110# white 
Ink: Distress oxide inks  peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, cracked pistachio, Memento tuxedo black 
Accessories:  Misti, Lil’ Inker stitched rectangle dies, Gelli plate, white gel pen


This card was for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS601). I chose THIS to case. I kept the cactus in the desert theme, but I used different images, different colors & added a greeting. I also got a kick out of Beth’s description of her card.

To make my desert scene, I stamped the Cowboy Cactus, masked it, then stamped the Broken Flower Fence around it. Makes it kind of look like the cowboys are out fixing the fence & left a hat & rope on the cactus. After coloring everything, I die cut it w/ a wonky stitched rectangle then added some clouds & a sunflower for the sun rays. The greeting is part of the Western Word Square & I used a wonky circle die to cut it. Here’s the inside & next to it are the Copics I used.
