Three Father's Day Cards

Happy Monday morning! I am on the SVG Attic blog today with these three Father's Day cards.  They are all very different, but all the files come from the SVG Attic Cards For Dad set.
Card #1 will be for my boys to give to my husband.  I thought it was a really fun style!  Products used include:  DCWV Copper Luxe stack, plain cardstock, Totally Pumpkin and Totally Black Trendy Twines and silver brads.
Here is a close up.
Card #2 will be going to my dad, a farmer!  I decided the card style was perfect to make an eclipse card, so I stamped several images from Raisin Boat's Homegrown stamp set onto my paper and watercolored it with Distress Inks in Walnut Stain, Fired Brick, Salty Ocean, Old Paper, Moved Lawn, Mustard Seed, and Weathered Wood.  Once it was totally dry, it was time to cut the card front!
I didn't use the original shadow cut layer under the "dad" word.  Instead I cut apart the card base and used the front part as the shadow.
Here is the finished product!  I went around the "dad" cuts with tan chalk ink to help them stand out a little more and popped them up with foam tape.  I really LOVE how this one turned out!
Last, but not least, card #3 is for my father-in-law.  This one was pretty straight forward.  I used papers from DCWV's Treasures stack and popped the "DAD" up with foam tape.  The solid colored words are actually cut from scraps of vinyl.  It was so simple to use that because you automatically have the right letter spacing and adhesive on it, so it is ready to add to the card immediately.  The only embellishment was silver brads.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine & Pink Diamonds

Hello all!  Today the Trendy Twine DT is showcasing projects that use one of the newest products in the Annie's Paper Boutique store...Pink Diamonds!  They are absolutely gorgeous!  Here is the layout I created using several of them as embellishments.  To find my DT sisters' projects, head on over to the Trendy Twine blog.
I wanted to find the perfect papers to used with the Pink Diamonds, and I found that with DCWV's Fairytale Dreams stack.  I added the title to the center of the page and embellished on either side with the Pink Diamonds.  They were adhered with Lineco adhesive and a precision tipped bottle.  I added a grouping of other embellishments including die cut hearts, flowers, Cotton Candy Sequins and Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.
You can see the gorgeous shine of the Pink Diamonds a little better in this picture.
In the top right corner of the layout, I added a Kraft Large Tag-It, on which I used a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot, a sentiment stamp from APB Documenting the Everyday set, Cotton Candy Sequins, and Cotton Candy Trendy Twine.  I also used Cotton Candy Trendy Twine on the photo mats.

Here is a close up of what the Pink Diamonds look like.  Look at that iridescent shine!  They are absolutely gorgeous.
And guess what?  You have two chances to win some of these beauties!  To qualify, comment on this blog post, the Trendy Twine blog, and also on my two DT sisters' blogs.  You have until this Wednesday at 10 pm central time to comment.  There will be another giveaway on the Trendy Twine Facebook Page, so head over there for details on how to enter.

Congrats Graduation Cards

Good morning!  We were invited to 6 graduations this year, so I needed to get going with cards!  This style was my go-to for this year.
They are fun and bright but since the papers are from DCWV's DIY Project Stack:  Chalk Party, it has a educational theme to it.  The stamps I used are from Pink and Main's Congrats set.  I didn't have the matching die, so I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut around the Congrats and make a shadow for it as well.  The four solid squares and the Congrats are popped up with foam tape.
I also used a pink card base on a couple to make them more feminine.  Additional products I used include GMD Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, sequins, and Lineco adhesive.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Tractor in Field Birthday Cards

Good Morning!  Today is my day to post on the SumMore Fun blog. The card I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's Homegrown stamp set.  I thought these would be great to send to family for their birthdays!
First, I created a panel with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I then used Lucky Clover DO ink to stamp the corn stalks with my stamp platform.  The front row of stalks were stamped first, then I did second generation stamping for the back row of corn stalks.  The sentiment is from Raisin Boat's Happy Camper stamp set.  I then stamped the tractor from the Homegrown stamp set, colored it with colored pencils, and cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
To assemble, I used the following adhesives:  ATGLineco Adhesive, and foam tape.  I embellished the cards with ribbon and black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
