~Dad's Day~

Hello Everyone,

Just trying to use up some DSP before the new catalog comes out!!!
This DSP is SU's "To The Nines"
I had some chipboard letters that matched the paper so I thought I would use them.
I made some score lines on the top portion of the card but hard to see in photo.
The large star looked a little plain so I added a button with some Linen Thread.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend and thanks for taking the time
to stop by my blog!


Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Sage Shadow, Sahara Sand, To The Nines DSP
Accessories:  Star, Modern Label and Word Window Punches, Chipboard Letters, Button from SU's Button Latte, Chocolate Chip Polka Dot Satin Ribbon (SU retired), Sponge Dauber, Linen Thread, Dimensionals

Lovely as a Tree "Father's Day Card"

The "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set is so versatile and this giant oak reminds me of a strong man.
Masculine cards are always a challenge but I really like this rustic look.  The Log Cabin Smooch helped to achieve this look with just a hint of shimmer!  I used the "Thumping Technique" on the top of the tree.  Stamped entire tree in Certainly Celery and removed the ink from the trunk with a Blender Pen.  Used Soft Suede for the trunk, then with my markers I thumped the top of the tree with Summer Sun, Old Olive and Soft Suede.

Stamps:  SU -  Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Soft Suede, Choc. Chip, Certainly Cerely, Old Olive, Summer Sun
