Well, I made this card last week for someone – male of course – I just need to focus on making male cards i think.  Anyways, thought I’d share since it turned out pretty cute. I’ll enter it into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge blog too.

I used Winnie and Walter stamps from the Big Bold you line with the patterned paper from the Fancy Pants Be Different line. The graduate hat was something I found in my children’s stash, so not sure on that.

Father’s day cards

Well wouldn’t you know, I realized yesterday that Father’s day was coming up. Mom, don’t let Dad see this post, ok?  And we all know that Lucy makes cards and so I had to make cards.  So I checked out a couple of blogs for inspiration and wouldn’t you know that the CAS(E) this Sketch #79 was this:

And Simon Says Wednesday Challenge was on masculine cards. So I want to enter both challenges, with my card.

So the tool embellishments was from Papertrey Ink Handy Hardware stamps and die cuts. The Happy Father’s day stamp is also from Papertrey Ink but the World’s Greatest stamp set I got last year. I used Tim Holtz long fasteners as the nail heads on the banner. I used Neena Dessert Storm as the card and the die cut pieces were scraps I had.

Well Here’s a birthday card I made.  I’m trying to focus on more masculine birthday cards since I work with 6 guys and I know there’s some birthdays coming up. So I broke out the sewing machine anyways.  I hadn’t used it in a while and I thought this was the perfect way to adhere the two pieces of paper together.

This is using the Fancy Pants paper out of the May 2014 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I also used a coordinating chipboard button by Fancy Pants.  The happy stamp is by a new company Winnie & Walter. I used versamark ink with a buff colored embossing powder but felt it was to washed out so I added some G07 Copic Marker to the embossing to help make it pop a little more.The Birthday die cut is from Papertrey Ink using October Afternoon paper.

Happy Sunday out there!  I have been playing in my craft room all day (thanks Sweetie). There’s a cop out there who has a birthday today and I was asked to make a card for him so I came up with this cute card that I hope to put into the Cardz 4 zGuy challenge that I found today. And since I used a piece of paper from the Simon Says Stamp February Kit, I’ll also be posting it in their gallery.
