Hubby's Father's Day Card

I thought this would be the perfect image for DH Father's Day card.  This past spring we bought a couple steers to raise, so of course, he had to get a new tractor!  His is a little newer than this one, as it has a cab (with air conditioning and a radio!), a front bucket, hay fork, and brushhog!  I included a picture of his tractor.

Anyhow, on to my card!  I chose "Got Tractor" and "Hay Bale" pre-colored images from Doodle Pantry...unfortunately she closed her shop:(  The layout is for Mojo Monday Sketch #500, which is her last challenge.  The image is cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die.  I imported the hay bales into Silhouette Studio to add the text, print, and cut out.  The red dp is from Bo Bunny, striped and straw paper from The Paper Studio, as is the teal and black cs.  Burlap strips colored with copics and gear embossing folder from Darice.  I used dried marigold distress ink around the image and hay bales.

Father's Day

Today's card is my FIL's Father's Day card.  I CASEd one I found on Pinterest, hers was a birthday card tho.  I used The Open Sea set from Stampin' Up! and did the "triple time stamping" technique.  The layers are 2x3 1/4, 3x4 1/4, and 4x5 1/4.  I used temporary adhesive to glue them together, then did my stamping.  I stamped with Color Box in Putty and Black Soot distress ink.  Cut a mat for each layer 1/4" larger from black cs.  Referee bakers twine and sentiment from Paper and Such (couldn't find their link to post).

***I am taking the summer off from QKR Stampede design team, so I won't be posting every week.  Please continue to look at their blog for inspiration from the other girls and enter their ATG challenges w/twist!

QKR Stampede Challenge #245





Here we are the LAST Friday in May, Memorial Day Weekend, and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede!  Our optional twist this week is "Birthday Cards".  I chose Old Goat and inside verse is Ain't No Kid...I plan to make 2 more of these and will give them to my brothers and brother in law for their birthdays!  I colored him with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die, fussy cut his hat from burlap looking paper, glossy accents on their eyes and shirt button, and button brads from my stash for the buttons on his suspenders.  I opened the image in Microsoft Word and lightened it so I could print the verse over it.  The layout is for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps May Sketch.  The clouds are dies by Impression Obsession, grass die by Lawn Fawn, fence and sun ray SVG file by Birds Cards in her freebie section.  I stamped the fence with Stampabilities woodgrain background stamp in walnut stain distress ink.   All papers from my stash!

QKR Stampede Challenge #244

It's time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede and this week our optional twist is "Things With Wings".  I chose Dorky Bird (isn't she ADORABLE?), which I imported into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out.  I colored her with copics, white crystal drops for her pearl necklace, star dust stickles on her head and tail feathers, and a yummy drink in her "wing" from Jolee's Boutique.  I bought a pack of tropical paper from JLaurieStudio on Etsy and this background was in the pack...isn't it AWESOME and perfect for this "Dorky Bird"?!?!  I added glossy accents to the glass and clear wink of stella to the umbrella and lemon.  The sun was cut out on my Cameo.

QKR Stampede #243

It's Friday and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede!  This week our optional twist is "Graduation".  I chose Cap, imported into Silhouette Studio to print and cut out, and then colored with copics.  My good friend, Rhonda, let me borrow her Sizzix Framelits Drop-Ins to create the frame and congratulations for the card.  I used foam and an acetate sheet from Queen and CO, which I cut out twice for thickness to make into a shaker card.  CS from Hobby Lobby, confetti and glitter from my stash, and Darice Graduation Cap embossing folder used on the gold background (it's there under all the confetti and glitter!).  This will go to my niece when she graduates high school in a month.
