Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to all those dads and father figures in your life.  Every year we have been making an hand-print or footprint artwork for my husband.  Here is this year’s creation

I used my Cricut to cut the letters out in vinyl.

I also made a this cute bear card for him.

I used the Rustic Home Fundamentals with Cocoa cardstock.  I used brown momento ink to stamp the bear and then watercolored the bear. The bear is from the Jack Cardmaking Stamp Set.  I really love this new blue burlap ribbon.

Happy Crafting!

I used Whimsy Fundamentals and Little Dreamer papers and popped it with Tangerine.

Hello Foxy

Don’t you just adore this cute stamp set for this month’s Stamp of the Month?  If you don’t know I adore foxes so I am obsessed.  I had some fun making these cards.

These two were using the same design that I used for Color Dare #247 last week.   I loved the way it turned out I wanted to make more in different colors.

This card was actually designed by Susan Williams who is so incredibly talented.  I love what she did with her cards which you can see here.  I made mine a little different.

Thank You Cards

I needed to create some thank you cards so I decided to play around with our new oval thin cut and the corresponding Scripty Thank you stamp A1206.

This one uses the Little Dreamer paper pack.

For this card I used the now retired paper pack Hello Lovely. I used the gold shimmer brush the thank you to give it a bit of glitter.  Here is a close up:
