Father's Day

So yesterday was Father's Day and last month I have made the moms in our small congregation a card for Mother's Day, so this time I did one for the Dads. Of course I had the perfect die set to make the cards with. Who needs an excuse anyway to play with the Spellbinders Truckin' through the Seasons die set.


I made white cardbases and embossed the front of each with a Darice tree embossing folder so that the tree is off to one side. I cut the truck body piece out of blue cardstock, the chrome parts out of matte silver cardstock, the tires out of black cardstock and the tail lights out of red glitter cardstock and assembled each truck. I added a bit of vellum in the window of the truck.


I measured the cutout from the tailgate panel and created textboxes in MS Word just a little bigger and added the tailgate sentiment. Once printed, I cut them out with the tailgate die and added them to the truck.


I completed the card with a yellow sun in the sky cut from yellow cardstock and with Happy Father's Day printed on it.


The cards were well received and I enjoyed making them. This truck die is so versatile - I love it. This is one of those few no coloring cards you find here on my blog.

A Stick Pin??

Today is the start of a new challenge over at the Outlawz Crash your Stash. The item you need to crash your stash for is a Stick Pin. Well I had to go beyond just crashing my stash, as I did not own any stick pins, so the next best course of action was to make one.


I looked through my sewing pins and found a longer one with a pretty round head and so threaded some small beads onto it to convert it into a mini stick pin. The focal image on my card is a stamp from Wild Rose Studio and the stamp is called Teddy Behind Presents. I stamped it onto Canson XL Drawing paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils and silver glitter gel pen. I added the white dots to the balloon with a white gel pen.


Once completed, I cut the image out with a stitched rectangle die from my stash and also cut a piece of white cardstock with the same die to be able to glue it to the back of the drawing paper to make it sturdier. I added my stick pin into the corner of the present ribbon and covered the back of the panel with foam tape. I prepared a white cardbase and then added a piece of teal cardstock and some silver strips of glitter washi tape to the center of a silver rectangle cut with a larger die from the set as I used on the image. I then added my image popped up.


The card was completed with a sentiment printed out on my computer and cut down to size.

We would love to see what you create with those stick pins you might have in your stash and have not used forever. Show us on the current Crash your Stash challenge.
