Paper Craft Crew Weekly Challenge #520

 Good Morning, Stampers!

Just in time for Father's Day, the Paper Craft Crew
challenge this week is just for the men in our lives!

Of course, there are other occasions you create for too - 
birthdays, graduation and more!

This card looks like a lot of technical detail went in to
making this, but I tell ya, it was SO quick and simple to do!

I took a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of watercolor paper and placed the 
decorative mask on top. Then, I watered-up my waterpainter and
painted the inks directly on to the mask. I added a few taps
of ink for the speckles and finished it off with the letters
from Alphabet a la Mode dies and some metallic dots. EASY PEASY!

Ink: Gray Granite, Wild Wheat, Copper Clay, Night of Navy
Paper: Watercolor, Gray Granite, Night of Navy
Accessories: Aphabet a la Mode dies, Metallic Dots, Four Square Decorative Masks, Waterpainter

Sweeter Things in Life

 Good Morning, Stampers!

This is one of the cards I featured in my Sweet Citrus Card Class to Go recently. I tried to focus on fruit in addition to the basic lemon and lime. This card features the orange. I combined the basket from the Cheerful Basket bundle and the oranges are a perfect fit! You can make grapefruit and coconuts, too! 

Includes step-by-step instructions for (5) 
cards plus the ** BONUS** Kraft Gift Box Holder!

 Good Morning, Stampers!

We are cuttin' up a rug with our favorite new dies from the Annual catalog this week! 
There are so many to choose from - it was hard to pick just one!

I love the shabby chic/vintage look, so the first choice for me is
the Delightful Doily Hybrid embossing folder. I think it's a little
hidden gem in the back of the catalog. Dressed up or dressed
down, It adds a lot of detail and texture to your projects!

rubberFUNatics Weekly Challenge #240

 Good Morning, Stampers!

Thanks so much for joining me for this week's rubberFUNatics
Weekly Challenge! There is lots of possibilities with this week's 
sketch so lets get right to it!

I love the detail in the Labels Aglow dies. Although
originally it was created for use for the Christmas 
holiday, I think it also works great as fireworks for
the 4th of July! This card has a hodgepodge of
different products that I combined and I really like
how it shows how well our products coordinate
no matter the occasion! 

One last tip when working with the Alphabet a la Mode dies - 
to make a letter or number smaller, trim off the bottom 
to the desired length and then reattach the base back to the bottom. 

Stamps: Alphabest, Share a Milkshake, Biggest Wish
Ink: Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Craft White
Paper: Basic White, Smoky Slate, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy
Accessories: Labels Aglow dies, Give it a Whirl dies, Stylish Shapes dies, Alphabet a la Mode dies, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Elegant Trim

I hope you'll find this week's sketch a fun and easy way to get creative!
