Dad, you're amazing!

** 6/30/16 Winner at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog! **
7/1/16 Top 3 Winner at Sisters of Craft! **

Hi everyone! I'm having to re-write this blog post, as I joined the design team for a new challenge blog that abruptly closed down on 6/16/16 without any notice. Our sponsors were SheepSki Designs, Digi Papers by Lozzy and The Stamping Boutique and even though the challenge never made it to the end, I feel compelled to recognize them because they provided all of us with images and papers to create with.

I chose to work with one of the papers from the very cool 'Mixed Media Boards' from Digi Papers by Lozzy for my Father's Day card. Love, love, love these papers and I see more projects using these in my future, lol! She is one talented lady! :)

Just look at all the faux texture in this background - really makes you want to reach out and touch it! I did some complimentary stamping and die cutting, and added a fun watch piece along with some metal studs. As simple as it is, I thoroughly enjoyed putting this card together.

For the inside, I layered part of the sentiment on black cardstock for a little interest. Otherwise I kept it fairly simple.

I'd love to enter this Father's Day card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Black Onyx cardstock, Marco's Ivory Antique Linen cardstock, Mixed Media Boards digital paper from Digi Papers by Lozzy
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! The Open Sea stamp set, Clarity Stamp Line Writing Sentiments stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: SB Classic Circles dies
  • Accessories: Darice black foam, MISTI, Basic Grey metal studs, The Paper Studio Spare Parts watch piece

I hope you've enjoyed today's card and will check out all the fun goodies at SheepSki DesignsDigi Papers by Lozzy and The Stamping Boutique - I know you'll find something you just can't live without! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by today and we'll see you next time!
