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!!!
