My dad doesn’t come online, but i thought i would still share with my blog readers what i created for him. He never wants anything… so I usually end up making him something. This is a perfect example of how a bad painting can turn good! When I first started painting it the colors were not turning out the way i had hoped, but I kept at it, and LOVE how it turned out! As far as the card goes- I just used a couple stamps and some washi tape ;)
Usually, father’s day weekend consists of him and I on a long motorcycle ride in northern NH. Motorcycle Week is going on in NH and there is a lot of bikes on the road that weekend- just makes for a fun time… I can’t wait!
I also thought I would share the video I made for my dad back in 2009- love some of those pics so much!
I was intrigued to play a long with Moxie Fab’s Gingham Challenge, so I decided to also make it into a birthday card that I need for a very
stinky special friend! I am head over heels in LOVE with Lawn Fawn clear sets, and am excited to have found a whimsical stamp company where I’m able to build cute little scenes with again! A lot of paper piecing on this card with Memory Box’s 8.5 x 11 gingham papers – so fun! There is still time to play along with the challenge, you have until June 4th to upload a card- I would love to see what you come up with!
I also realize this card fits into the latest Lawnscaping Challenge, to use pattern paper- so I’m playing a long with this as well!
Note: The copics linked below are for Sketch style, I use the Original Style in my studio, but wanted to link the colors used
I participated in the Hero Arts Scramble this weekend over on the Flickr group. My friend Cheiron was hosting, and my friend Glenda and I met up in a google+ hangout to stamp together. We were given the challenge to create a card for OURSELVES using all of our favorite items. A card just for lil ol me!? ok!!! Teal, teal, and a lil more teal… kraft…. a lil bling, letters and fonts are a love of mine. I love office supplies, hence the grid and punched border I used. AND the best of all “Saturday” my favorite day of the week!!! (see below for a full listing of the supplies I used)
Thank you for hosting Cheiron!
In honor of tomorrow being friday, I thought I would post this card!
I played with some creative girls in a google+ hangout last friday, and created this card. I had been all over MA and NH so was a bit tired, aka lazy- and only wanted to use what was within arms reach. Paper and embellishments scraps worked well here! After I saw my friend Cheiron’s card with the “weekdays” Hero Arts set, I was like “great i’ll never top that” – but i’m happy with what i ended up with.
I have had good intentions of trying out some of Hero Art’s Challenges for awhile now, but it just hasn’t happened.. this month though i have done a few cards!!
Here is the first one I designed for the Sunshine and Showers challenge
On this card I used
I decided to try my first moxie fab challenge … and boy, is it a doozie! I’m all for a challenge, and this certainly didn’t hold anything back. The boldness, the color combos are all out of my comfort zone… but you know what? That is what is best about trying challenges, they open up your creative brain to new ideas!
I was immediately inspired by the bold wall paper, and happy to see a splash of teal (of course) and last but not least i loved the striking clean black and white pattern. Hope you enjoy the card I created!
