group of 3 fathers day cards

Leave a comment

With fathers day just around the corner now I thought I would show this group of three fathers Day cards that I made using Simple Stories Awesome papers, and my Docrafts papermania Dad stamp. The general theme is the same, just swapped around the colours, and used Stampin Up cardstock for the base card. On all the cards i stamped the Dad stamp a few times and fussy cut the letters out to mix and match .Some flags were fussy cut from the papers, and twine and brads were also used. Today I finished some christmas card ideas I had floating around, and now I am ready to head to the craft room to create some bright sunny cards in the hope that it encourages the real thing to show itself – It has been an amazingly wet ,cold and dreary winter, and I am ready to see a little sunshine! Til tomorrow…


Simple stories awesome 5

Leave a comment

O.K. – I have lost track of the number in this series so I am calling it number 5…. The paper is Simple Stories Awesome, and here I have combined it with my Lacey Pennant spellbinders for the banner across the top, and I used a matching border sticker across the bottom. I stuck on a couple of Tim Holtz idea -ology sprocket gears, and distressed and inked all the edges.I taught a class over at paper flourish today – always enjoy my time with my ladies – and while there saw the new graphic 45 papers – a ladies diary collection – and couldn’t resist buying lots of it so tonight I am hoping tto spend a little time in the craft room creating with it – Til tomorrow….
