Dad's Pocket

The Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set with the coordinating Pocket Framelits is super fun and makes creating pocket cards super easy!

I stamped the stitching onto Marina Mist cardstock using Dapper Denim Ink. One pass through the Big Shot cuts and scores the easy! Then I used a longtime retired favorite background stamp...Linen, to create the look of denim on both the pocket and the background panel. The cute little "DAD tag" was stamped onto Smokey Slate using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. "You Rock" across the bottom is from the retired Crazy About You set.

This pocket was to hold concert tickets so I used a non SU! set I have in my stash that features a guitar and other rocker style images.

I think the Pocketful of Sunshine set is going to be a lot of fun for both cards and scrapbook pages.

Hope your weekend ROCKS!

Feathery Friends Thanks

I must say, there are some really great stamp sets Just For Hosts in the new catalog! I just LOVE the adorable images in the Feathery Friends set...especially the sweet bird I used on this thank you card.

I had fun watercoloring these images and I tried a couple of my favorite new In Colors...Lemon Lime Twist & Berry Burst along with a couple of lasts years In Colors...Peekaboo Peach & Flirty Flamingo.

The textured background was created by inking up the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder with Crumb Cake ink before rolling it through my Big Shot.

Don't you just love this ribbon? It's the new Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Berry Burst. Another new embellishment used on this card is the Glitter Enamel Dots. They are really super cute and even much prettier in person because they really do sparkle,

Have you checked out the great Just For Hosts section at the back of the new catalog? Now is the perfect time to earn these wonderful new sets with the WE ♥ HOSTS promo going on through June.

Colorful Seasons Father's Day

Such a busy time of year! My first new catalog order came many days ago and I've just been so busy I haven't had time to be creative. I had to make a card for my Dad for Father's Day so I grabbed the very versatile Colorful Seasons Bundle and created this relaxing beach scene.

The watercolor look background was created easily using the Watercolor Background Technique I shared in this free tutorial. Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay & Soft Sky were used to ink my block.

The Thoughtful Banners set was used for the sentiment and Linen Thread added just the right finishing touch.

I've been watching my sweet little grand daughter a few times a week so that is one of the reasons I haven't had much stamping time recently. I am really enjoying every minute of my time with her! I make sure to take lots of photos and hopefully I will have some scrapbook pages to share soon! Here are a couple photos I captured for my son for his first Father's Day.

We enjoyed a beautiful day is my handsome son and his baby girl.

I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating the Fathers in your life yesterday as well.
