Just Add Ink Challenge #28

Happy Friday everyone,
Well we are about to go out camping for the long weekend in the NT but before we go I thought I would quickly do this challenge from Just Add Ink.

This week it is:
Just Add ... A Man Card, plus a colour combination.
What a fantastic challenge with Fathers Day in Australia just around the corner.

Last year I found lots of cards using the 'business shirt', I believe you fold the paper a certain way to get the shirt but I didn't know how to do it so I just made up a template, I have also designed my own box to hold 4 golf balls.

Stamp set: Occassional Greetings

Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand (didn't have Kraft), DSP Urban Garden

Accessories: 6.35mm Choc Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Writes (Choc Chip Brocade Blue), Antique Brass Brads, 2.5cm & 3.2cm Circle Punches, Stampin Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Snail

Thanks for looking.

Happy Stampin', Hope you all have a great weekend!

Baby Card for Twins

Well two requests in two days. I am feeling pretty wanted at the moment LOL.

This time it is a baby card for twins. They really loved the look of the baby suit cards so I decided to incorporated them as well...again this is an A5 size: Stamp set: Tiny Tags ('Double the Fun' printed off computer)

Card Stock: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, DSP Old

Accessories: Bashful Blue Brad,1.6cm Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Snail, Sticky Strip, Bashful Blue Stamp Pad

Goodbye Card

My husband was at work the other day and I receive an email from him for a card.

'Could you please make a farewell card for **** for the work guys to sign. Would need to be a reasonable sized one as a shop bought size. Maybe your tool set stamps.'

I was surprised and excited that he even knew that I had a Tool set stamp (I did show him the one I made below for the JAI Challenge so that might be why).

Anyway I made a A5 card and as they are all mechanics this is what I decided to do::

Stamp Set: Totally Tools, Loads of Love

Card Stock: Whisper White, Bravo Burgundy, Note Quite Navy, More Mustard, Garden Green

Accessories: Big Shot Sizzlits Alphabet, 2.5cm double stitched Choc Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Versamark, Snail, Sticky Strip, Vintage Brads, Choc Chip stamp pad, Stampin' Writes (Creamy Caramel, Temping Turquiose, Going Gray), Stampin Dimensionals and Square Scallop punch (thanks for the idea Lisa)
