WCMD PTI Challenge #4-Australia

Here are some cards using influences from Australia. When I was in 3rd grade, my teacher, Jenni Samuel, told us about growing up there. She moved to the US in the '70's, because she met and married Dave Kunst, who was the first man to walk around the world. She met him in during his walk there, and drove a car 3 miles per hour behind him, towing a trailer, for about a thousand miles. Now that's love!
The first card is a girl version, using a retired SU set, Paint Prints, and a white Souffle pen. The second card is a boy version, using another retired SU set, Suitable for Framing; again outlined with the souffle pen.
Paper: SU Real Rust, PTI Dark Chocolate
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Stamps: PTI Birthday Basics, Women of Life, SU Paint Prints, Suitable for Framing
Other: 2" square punch, 1 1/2" square punch, Souffle pen

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstockInk: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.

Father's Day & CFC 105

Hello again.  I'm just briefly coming up for air after hiding from the freight train of the end of the school year.  Graduation, birthdays, camping trips, and Father's Day--all in the same week?  Um, okay.

Anyway, here is a Father's Day card for my dad (and a twin one for my FIL).  I love this World Map stamp!  This also qualifies for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, using maps.  Yahoo!

Stamped on white cardstock in Versamark, then heat embossed in white.  Then I used Distress inks to sponge on the color.  Love this look!

The inside of the card says, "Dad, Grandpa, Father-in-law.  Happy Father's Day!"

Paper: PTI Kraft, White
Ink: Versamark, Distress Inks--Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters
Stamps: PTI World Map, World's Greatest
