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
Other: PTI Double-ended banner die

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:



It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

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.
