This first card is a Father's Day card made with the new Text Block: Dad die.
Next, I added foam tape to the back of the Text Block piece and stuck a few flat-head pins through the foam to look like nails. I stuck that down to the prepared card base and went about making my hammer. I die cut the shape from Rustic White cardstock and stamped the handle with Pure Poppy ink. I went back with VersaMark and silver powder to heat emboss the metal head of the hammer. I used a small piece of foam tape to adhere the hammer into position and called it a day. So great for a Mr. Fix-it, wouldn't you say?
Next up is A Second Helping Of Sunshine!
I started by stamping a piece of Fresh Snow linen cardstock with Background Basics: Super Gingham in Spring Moss ink. I die cut the gingham piece and some Spring Moss with the You've Been Framed: Diamond die and inlaid the patterned piece into a Pure Poppy You've Been Framed shape. I matted that whole panel with a piece of linen cardstock and then adhered the whole thing to a Kraft card base.
Next, I die cut and stamped the bowl and cherries using Pure Poppy, Enchanted Evening, Dark Chocolate, and Spring Moss inks. The sentiment was stamped in Enchanted Evening on a Sketched Shapes banner. I adhered that to the card front before adding my bowl of cherries with foam tape. A simple baker's twine bow was the perfect finishing touch.
I have one last card to share with you, also made with A Second Helping Of Sunshine.
This one is a simple card, but it gets the message across rather well, no? I began by stamping the scale onto a Soft Stone card base using Tropical Teal ink. I added the shadow (from Bowl Of Sunshine) with Aqua Mist that had been stamped off once. Then I added the sentiment above the scale using Smokey Shadow ink.
Next, I die cut a circle using the Rattled die and stamped it with the dial and pointer for the scale. I adhered it into place and covered it with an epoxy embellishment I created using Heather's handy tutorial. The result is so lifelike! Just a fun card with a hint of silliness to let someone know that they're on your mind.
So that's all for me today, folks. I'll be back again tomorrow with more of this month's new releases. In the meantime, Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Erin, Maile, and Lexi for more inspiration. Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!
