LSC160 - Dad's Day

Hello everybody - TGIF!!!!

First of all I can't believe it's already Friday...this past week has gone by way tooooooo fast!!!

I do love Friday's, because of all the extra challenges...make sure you check out Beate's and Sharon's!!!

My morning was already busy - had the tile guy come and fix my shower....Rebecca had teacher/parent conference....and Rico had to go to the vet!!!

That gave me at least the chance to think about what I wanted to do for the Limited Supply Challenge....

I have bought this fabulous "Dad's Day" Set right after I have seen it in the new Spring-Summer catalog, but it's been sitting here forever.... and I finally had the perfect opportunity today to use it!!! I hate to say this, but I do this with a couple of my sets - how about you???

I really liked the card that is featured in the catalog on page 112... - that kinda gave me an idea .... - I made the regular card first.

I started with the Bashful Blue as my base and the added the Chocolate Chip, So Saffron. The CC was pierced on top and bottom. The SS CS was stamped in the same Ink with the BG stamp from this Set. Then I placed Certainly Celery on top of the SS and added the new "Styled Silver" Brads and wrapped the Bashful Blue Ribbon onto the edge......

The "Happy Dad" stamp was inked in Chocolate Chip and again in Bashful Blue. The CC was punched out with the Designer Label Punch. The BB was cut out and raised with Stampin Dimensionals on top of the CC. Then I inked up the set again in Certainly Celery and cut out the little star above the "Dad's" and adhered it on top of the BB star - confused??? Just click on the picture for a better look!!!

The "Mark Twain" sentiment was stamped in Bashful Blue.


The long card measures 3 1/4" x 6". I started with So Saffron and added Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery CS. The BB was pierced on top and bottom. The CC CS was stamped with the BG stamp from this set and I used Certainly Celery Ink.

Then I added Chocolate Chip CS on the left and right and covered the edges with So Saffron Ribbon. Both sides were embellished with the new "Styled Silver" Brads. This panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

In the center of the Certainly Celery panel I added the "Happy Dad's Day" sentiment and I stamped it first in Bashful Blue and then Chocolate Chip. The BB was punched out and the CC was cut out and raised with Stampin Dimensionals.....

The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip and it is from the "Absolutely Fabulous" Set.

Wow - this was long....TFL!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and a great Easter!!! May God bless you and keep you safe!!!

I love both of these cards--great color combo. And, yes--I ALWAYS buy stamps that never seem to get inked up in a reasonable amount of time!

Jackie Pedro said...

Wonderful cards, Silke! Love the color combo and the brads.

Nancy Riley said...

These are fantastic cards, Silke! Awesome colors and layouts!

I too have stamp sets that haven't seen ink. Shhhh ... don't tell my DH!!!

Ich liebe diese Farbkombination hellblau und braun und creme. Ganz toll.
Schöne Ostern

Joan and Amy said...

Great job on this challenge...I have to remember that I just bought that punch!!! Joan

LeAnne said...

These are great, Silke! I love the way you used the brads. I am definitely not hoarding these, they're just too cool to keep in the tin!!!

Janine said...

Great cards... Love the colors.

Jessie/knightrone said...

I absolutely love these both!!! Awesome job!!!!

Carol said...

Great color combo and layouts - love both the cards!

I'm the opposite with my stamp sets. I have to ink them up within at least a day or two of receiving them (and most of the time it's the same day!).

SHUT UP!!! I love the Dad's Day cards! I like the use of that punch - I just had to have it and haven't hardly used it! Too bad that stamp isn't in that set! However, I think I'll use your design for some other cards so I can say I used it! :)
I am just lovin' your stuff!

Kim said...

WOW!! LOVE these!! I love your blog too! I'll be back often!
