Happy Father’s Day!

Tonight I am sharing the card I made for my stepdad. It is also Card 4 for my Craft from My Stash challenge…I need to get on the ball if I plan to make my 10-15 project goal this month!



I used Nailed It from Stampin’ Up! that recently retired along with the coordinating paper, Urban Underground. I watercolored the tools using a blender pen and SU inks. The layout is from a sketch posted at TGIF Challenges a couple weeks ago.


Here is the inside using more stamps from the set. I managed to use 7 out of the 14 stamps in the set on this card!



Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Nailed It

Ink: Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Memento Tuxedo Black

Father’s Day card

I’m a little late in sharing this card but still wanted to post it. I had a very bad case of bronchitis since the Friday before Father’s Day and am finally feeling better. I had it in May also and this time it didn’t want to leave!


This is the card I made for my stepdad and I am very proud of how it turned out. I did some masking to create a scene and am very pleased with it.


Stampin Up In the Meadow


I used three images and a sentiment from Stampin Up’s In the Meadow stamp set. The scene was watercolored with a whole bunch of Stampin Up ink pads, colors listed below.


Here is a collage of my work in progress~

SU In the Meadow


That’s all for now! I am going to hopefully be creating a lot and posting many cards and layouts this month. I am in my creative space right now with a pile of stamps and paper pads sitting in front of me!
