I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.
I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!
I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.
Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.
1. Create a project for “Father’s Day or that special guy in your life.”
2. Create a project with “Stamping on anything other than Card Stock.”
3. Mash it Up! and create a “Father’s Day project with Stamping on anything but Card Stock.”
I am sorry I did not mash it up this week but I did get the Father’s Day card done and ready for my dad! (By the way, my mom did get her Mother’s Day card after all- she just forgot she put it away to save it!- Silly girl)
I used the SU In the Wild stamp set- I had my eye on it for quite some time and finally got it. It is a lovely sketchy lined stamp but needs something to go with it. I saw a few people watercoloring around it and thought the new SU Work of Art stamp set could do the job for me! So I inked it up with Wild Wasabi, then Crumb Cake, and finally Soft Sky to mimic the ground, the animal, and the sky. Then I stamped the moose in Chocolate Chip ink.
I finished it off with some matching banners stamped from the SAB 2014 Banner Blast set. I am so happy there are two other sets set called Banner Banter and Itty Bitty Baby in the new catalog that coordinate with the cute little banner punch. I also embellished the banners with some random metal brads.
The photopolymer sentiment came from the May Paper Pumpkin- another stamp that came with it has Happy Birthday on it. We made this card in class and both sentiments were used by my gals.
I really hope you find time to play along with the Friday Mashup this week! Make sure to check out what the Design Team has created for inspiration.
