Sketch 181 and some belated father's day cards!

So today's sketch challenge was a super fun sketch found here. I really enjoyed the sketch and had just gotten some Hambly screenprints yesterday at an LSS and so I combined the two! The screen print is printed in a chocolate brown and it's called brocade...to die for! I also wand to keep it kind of simple as I was making this for a man...so you know...not too much fru fru...I don't know that he'll appreciate the coral, but hey...at least he's getting a card! LOL Just kidding.

Here are the supplies used
Stamps: Much appreciated
Ink: Basic Brown
paper: Shimmery white, cameo coral, chocolate chip, tempting turquoise, brocade screen print by Hambly
accessories: ribbon, silver brads
All supplies by SU! unless otherwise specified
This card was hubby's Father's Day card... I didn't want to post it because I didn't ant him to see it...and I have been super busy since Father's Day so no time to post...Don't worry, Tuesday's Teacher WILL be back next week! I don't actually own this stamp, my friend Sara over at Sara's Stamping Sanctuary sent it to me a while back and I just thought it was perfect for the occasion! What are the supplies for this little beauty you ask? Well wait no more!
Stamps: Riley Moose by Hannah stamps, All year cheer I
paper: tempting turquoise, chocolate chip, Designer series paper tempting turquoise
accessories: SU! markers Twill tape ribbon

This next card was easy peasy! Really 2 stamps and I was done...the nice thing about this card is that you can change the sentiment and have it be for any occasion. All I did was stamp the frame in stazon timber brown ink and then stamped the sentiment on the inside with blue bayou ink (which will not be available after Aug 10th!) and then used an aqua painter to spread the color a little...no need to add ink to the aqua painter, the water based ink will run and spread a little with just adding water!

Then I used my little craft knife and cut around the stamped arches at the top and bottom, threaded the ribbon through and added a brad...now it looks like it's hanging, Neat huh?


Stamps:Label Classics, All year cheer (both retired)

Ink: blue bayou, stazon timber brown

Paper: shimmery white

Accessories: vintage brads, brown ribbon

This last card was for both Father's day and for the Featured stamper challenge on SCS this last Sunday. The Featured stamper was Dinidill. So the idea behind the featured stamper is that you go into their gallery, find a card that you like and kinda copy it...but you have to change some of the things so that it's NOT an exact replica of the card...what's the point then right? Then you upload your card to SCS and link it to the challenge thread...it's actually quite fun to see what everyone comes us with!

I only used her layout and I changed just about everything else. I love how this card came out and so did the recipient! (I made 2...different colors though and gave one to my FIL and one to my BIL)


Stamps: Loads of Love, All year cheer, lovely as a tree

ink: stazon timber brown, soft sky, blue bayou, old olive SU! markers

paper: really rust, old olive, whisper white, unknown DS paper

accessories: vintage brads, aqua painter, scallop punch as a mask, piece of paper to mask the truck

That's all I have for ya! I hope you liked it and I'm sorry I have been so spacey lately!

Thanks for stopping by!

happy Stampin'
