Dad Rocks

I've titled this card, "Dad Rocks".  I love the new stamps I got from Papertreyink, especially these chairs.  I'm entering this in CardPatterns Sketch 61 this week.  I've been wanting to jump in on some of their great sketches challenges, especially since soooo many of my StampTV friends have showed off some great sketches from here.  Here's my card.


I used GKD Pure Luxury "All Spruced Up" for my base and Kraft as the layer.  I embossed the Kraft later with the new embossing plate from Papertreyink, "Woodgrain Impression Plate".  I sponged it with Distressed Ink "Old Paper" from Ranger.  Stamp "DAD" is from GKD "Guiding Light" set by Rupa Shevde and the chair and "You Rock" sentiment is from Papertreyink, "Chair-ished" set.  The chair was inked with Distressed Ink "Barn Door".

Thanks for stopping by!!!!
Have a great day.

Catching Up On Postings

Once again, time has gotten away from me and it's been quite a while since I've posted cards.  My last posting was for the Gina K Design Summer Barbecue Recipe Blog Hop and what a fun time that was.  I hope you'll go check out the recipes and download them and the cover for your own cookbook collection.   It's all FREE!

Here are some cards that I've been creating since that blog hop.  I hope you like them and if you'd like the details on them you can check that out at my page at StampTV.  Membership is free there and you can view an incredible array of gorgeous cards from StampTV members.

Here's my first card:

I've been playing with making paper flowers and I've found so many great tutorials.  I found this one at Dawn McVey's blog  I've found others too that I'll post later.  Very cool techniques out there.

This is a great technique that Gina K has over at StampTV.  It's her feature technique this week entitled "Stenciling with Impressabilities".  Her challenge was to do a batik look.

Gina K had a release party Thursday night and I made this card for the color challenge  of Turquoise, Lemon and a Neutral.

Here's another one for the Gina K Release Party.  This one I made for the Sketch Challenge.  

Are you tired of looking yet?  If you're not, I have ONE MORE.  

This stamp is so pretty.  It's from a set called "Sending Sunshine" by Theresa Momber, one of the Gina K designers.  

Okay, that's enough for now.  I've caught up a little bit.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to look at my cards.  

Have a great week!
