Happy Fathers's Day

Crikey, I am so far behind with posting some of my cards. What a slacker ;). So as I play a little bit of catch up lets go way back.. at least a month and a half to Fathers Day.

I found this fabulous Canadian company that produces some wonderful scrapbook papers that are perfect for my husband and friends.

I created this quick card using simple layers that I die cut with stitched rectangles. I added a little foam tape to the heat embossed sentiment and it was done. I did not want to add too much to the card and distract from the fantastic paper designs.

Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Paper - Wild Whisper, Avery Elle - City Celebrations.

I also found a company that can make photoboards to add some interest into the background of my card photos. So far I am quite happy :). This one is weather wood grain and the company is Posterjack.

Happy Friday, I love that the weekend is just around the corner. Do you have some crafty time planned?

I find it is hard to get into my craft room mid summer, all that sun shine outside just calls to me but I have a sun shiny card to share this morning.

I used my stitched die cuts to get a panel from each side of this pretty paper. I die cut the flowers and separated them with foam tape. The sentiments are popped up with foam tape and I finished with some gems.

Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Photoplay, Simon Says Stamps - Stamps and Die cuts, gems.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Llama Tell you...

I think this stamps set so cute, this card is for a niece who recently moved to my little neck of the woods. She is an avid knitter, so Llama tell you.. Ha, Love it!

I stamped and fussy cut the llama and added just a wee bit of colour. I added some glossy accents to the little tuff of wool on the head then popped him up with some foam tape.

The sentiments are also popped up with foam tape. I finished with some sequins.

Supplies: White, brown and yellow card stock, Designer Paper - Unknown, Gerda Steiner Designs-Llama Tell You, sequins.

We have a new challenge this week for The Challenge, use black, white and a colour of your choice on your card.

I chose to use blue as my third colour, my designer papers are a blend of white and blue. I added a thin blue layer to the panels and I stamped the sentiments in black. I finished with some white twine, the center panel and the sentiments are popped up with foam tape for added dimension.

Supplies: White and blue cardstock, Designer Paper - Authentique, Close to my Heart-Life is Sweet, twine.
