For Dad

Later this month is father’s day and to celebrate dad or that special guy in your life Hand Stamped Sentiment’s challenge this week is father’s day/masculine cards.

Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #70

The idea for my Dad card from a picture frame.  I wanted to put each letter in DAD in a frame.  The Curly Label punch fit the bill.  I punched three shapes from the Newsprint DSP and six black ones from Basic Black card stock.  These I used to frame the Newsprint ones.  The next step was to texture the metal sheet with the Perfect Detail Texturz Plate.  The letters are die cut using my Big Shot and the Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die.  I die cut a Basic Black and Riding Hood Red set.  I used the Basic Black letters as a shadow.  I also used the Buttons #5 Sizzlits to die cut some buttons from the Newprint DSP, Basic Black CS and Riding Hood Red CS  I used Hemp Twine for the buttons.  This card came together very easily.  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and upload your manly card.  We’d love to see it!

Bring on the Bling!

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Bring on the Bling!  Hop on over and take the challenge.  I’d love to see your shiny creation.

This time of year always makes me think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and her iconic little black dress. With New Year’s Eve coming up I know we’ll all have some sort of get-together and the little black dress is perfect for your cocktail or dinner party.  Looking elegant is only a little black dress away.  Inspired and in celebration of Audrey I made this dress card with rhinestones, silver paper and ribbon.  I made a template, traced it in on Basic Black CS, cut it out with paper snips then ran it through my Big Shot with the Perfect Details swirl Texturz plate.  I hope you can see the texture in the photo.  I made the side ruffles out of vellum paper.  I used Very Vanilla satin ribbon for the waist sash and made a rose also from the Very Vanilla satin ribbon and embellished the rose with a clear rhinestone.  I’ll post a tutorial for the dress later this week.

I cut a Basic Black and silver paper layer.  There is another Basic Black layer I punched the edge with the Scallop border punch.  I also embellished with Very Vanilla and Black satin ribbon.  I stamped the frame and sentiment with Versamark then embossed with silver embossing powder.  The card is finished with three sizes of rhinestones.
