week #2 DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY Challenge #111 Father's day / or a card for a man

         WEEK #2                                                                                  #111 challenge ends June 25, 2013


Hi Friends,

Fathers day has come and gone, but you can still make a guy card. I have some more inspiration  for you.

DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #111

THEME:   Fathers day/ or card for a man

 Do you find making guy cards difficult?

Challenge yourself

Remember  last week I told you,  this past march I was at the scrapbook expo in Pleasanton.  I took a work shop from a woman  named Michelle who owns Avocado Arts stamps.  Wonderful whimsical stamps. "The perfect blend" was  the stamp set I received for part of the class kit.  I love it. When I got home I was able to order the cut file for the dies that match the stamps.   I  die cut every single stamped image and I have almost used everyone from the stamp set with these three cards.

The strip of paper is from AC Studio Calico, darling dear with gingerbread crinkle ribbon from  My Craft Spot. I used Jenni Bowlin malted milk to stamp the cup. The heart and the tea bag are colored with copic markers.   Does this look like a face with lips? It does to me.

I used Kraft card stock for the base, PTI dark chocolate ink and green copic marker to color in the cup. I used the cup dots to add the design to the take-out cup. I used a die to cute the flower shape out of the burlap. The flower brad is from making memories

The papers I used are recollection
the Base card stock is PTI,
ink is PTI dark chocolate



Will be coming from my sponsor for this challenge

The challenge will be open until 11:55 PST  June 25, 2013.

  9. Terrific masculine cards Diana. Love the burlap on the second one. :) Thanks for joining us at Make It Monday.

  10. I luv the stamps set from your new sponsor, Diana. Masculine cards are not one of my favorites to make, and I'm not sure exactly why. I love flowers, and some men do, too! But I haven't seen too many maculine cards with flowers. I guess I just need more practice. TFS your ideas with us.

  11. Love,love the cards - just perfect!!Thanks so much for joining us this week and we hope to see you again soon at the Lady Anne's Stamp Challenge, Elizabeth (DT) at the Lady Anne's Stamp Challenge.

  12. Great cards. Thank You for sharing with us at Lady Anne's Challenges. I hope we see you again soon.
