Compose a Card #5

Now this one was fun! Becky Oehlers has another challenge using polka dots, red, white and aqua. The measurements are specific, and we were to also use a button. These colors are so fun together, and I feel like I need to wear a poodle skirt or something. My friend has borrowed my Polka Dot Basics stamp set, so I thought I couldn't do this particular challenge. Then I had a stroke of genius...the polka dots don't all need to be the same size--duh. I used all kinds of circle punches to create my 3-D polka dots. I really like how it turned out (after about 42 small white sentiment strips later...).

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.

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!"
