Our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been brought to us by Christine Blain, who just happens to be our Guest Designer for the month.
With Father’s Day coming up in September for Australia, it is the perfect challenge to start creating your cards or project using this challenge. I opted to go for a male’s birthday card & used a set that I really like, but must admit, haven’t used it for sometime. In fact, I am really happy with the final result!
Base Card – Soft Suede – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 x 2 – So Saffron – 4″ x 1/2″ or 14.5cm x 1cm
Layer 4 – Not Quite Navy – 4″ x 2″ or 14.5cm x 5cm
Layer 5 – Very Vanilla – 4″ x 1 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 4.5cm
Stamp Set – Totally Tool, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink – Soft Suede
Cardstock – Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Basic Grey
DSP – Well Worn
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Crystal Effects, Crop-a-Dile, Stampin’ Up! Wirte Markers – So Saffron, Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy
I inked my images with the Not Quite Navy Write Marker, stamped off once onto a scrap piece of paper & stamped onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I repeated this same step until I was happy with the look of the card. I then stamped 3 images onto scrap Very Vanilla direct onto the card, cut the images out, coloured part of the images with Stampin’ Up! Write Markers – So Saffron, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler & set aside.
The piece of Very Vanilla was adhered to the piece of Not Quiet Navy, then So Saffron, to the piece of DSP, Very Vnailla & finally to the Base Card – Soft Suede all with Snail Adhesive.
I completely forgot to add my Silver Brads to the top left hand corner of the card, so I comprised a little. I punched out 6 circles using my Crop-a-Dile, adhered 2 to the top LH corner with Tombow, 1 to the middle of the screwdriver, 1 to the handle of the spanner & 1 to the card where I wanted to place the hammer.
The tools were then adhered to the card – as per the photo with Tombow,with the spanner being my 3rd brad at the top LH corner.
The greeting was stamped in Soft Suede onto Very Vanilla, cut to size & adhered to the card prior to adhering the final Faux Brad it.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
