Hi, well it’s been a long time since I posted anything.  Almost 2 months.  I was just really busy with work thanks to the Mississippi River and then just needed to catch up around the house.  We also laid some sod down so we now have a backyard! Woot, woot! So come on over for a visit!

Anyways, I saw a Tag you’re it and the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge this week and thought I’d give it a go.

make a wish 2 Aug 2014

I have these white tag cards I got years ago from i craft. Copyright date is 2010 and there’s 8 to a pack and I still have 7 unused, so I guess this is the first card I’ve made with them. The butterfly die is the new one from papertrey ink Life is Beautiful. I used the Make a Wish stamp from Studio Calico’s Hello stamp set in the latest monthly card kit on Simon Says Stamp Greetings with Sketchy die.

The inks were all distress inks. I used Tim Holtz spritzer on the stencil using the Peeled Paint, Broken China and Wild Honey Distress Markers. I then used the Wild Honey on the Sketchy Die with the spritzer.  I used the Distress stains of Peeled paint and Broken China on the butterfly and then edged the butterfly with a wink of Stella and also put it in the holes on the background butterfly. I inked the edges of the card with Mustard Seed and Scattered Straw. Lastly I put some dots out of my stash and tied a scrap ribbon in the hole.

This sentiment I found on the Inisde & Out Birthday II stamp set from Papertrey Ink which I thought matched nicely with the sentiment on the outside.

This is the sketch I was supposed to follow. Thanks for looking! It won’t be so long next time.


Father’s day cards

Posted: June 10, 2014 by tatinimou in 2014, Male

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.

fathers day 2014

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.

So I made some cards a while ago but forgot to post them.  The first card is a chevron stripe by Lawn Fawn in a rainbow of colors using Distress Inks. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

The next card is an easel card so in the picture you see both the front and the inside (We Can’t thank you enough). I wish I’d taken a picture from the side.

I know, I know.  Red plaid is not a spring color. But I saw this card, which is springish,

here and had to try something. Granted hers is much more elegant but I worked with scraps. Not one single whole piece of paper was harmed in the making of this card.

Today I have a card using October Afternoon Midway papers.  I want to enter it into the Simon Says Anything Goes With Pearls Challenge.

Arrow birthday

The lighting is a little yellow but I think the card still shows well. Since it opens in the middle, I thought I’d show the inside.
