I've got a long post for you today because you get a 2fer post.......
The cool thing about these cards today is I have used stamps from all the stamp sets Rogue Redhead Designs has to offer. Relish Reading, Snow Hugs, Floriculture, and Bits and Pieces. I love to mix and match stamps and these sets are so versatile that you can make endless cards and projects with them.
The first card I have for you is a Vintage Father's Day card, we've got Father's Day coming up this Sunday so we want to make sure we honor all those Dad's, would be Dad's, and men who just act like Dad's even when they don't have to.
I used the Relish Reading set, the checker board pattern from Floriculture, and the sentiment from Bits and Pieces. The gate fold is easy, just cut your paper 5 1/2 X 12, score at 2, 4, 8, 10. Make your folds on the score lines and get busy decorating.
Jingle Belles JB24-Oh Christmas Sketch, Oh Christmas Sketch
Bah! Humbug! Challenge 23...Whateva!! Teenagers
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge CHNC 24: Buttons
The second card I have for you is for the 3 challenges above.....
To start the card off I have used the sketch from Jingle Bells. When you've got a good sketch to start it's easy to create a great card from there.
For Bah! Humbugs! Teenager challenge I chose to go with some nostalgia---a time when teenagers didn't seem to be under quite as much pressure and could experience some good fun together. This stamp just looks like a fun snowy afternoon on a skating pond.
I have to apologize to Crafty Hazelnut, I'm not much of a button user, so I got this one token button on the card so I could jump into her challenge. Hop over to her challenge blog and check things out because I'm sure the other entrants made some better entries with buttons. I know I'm off to check them out to see if I might learn a thing or two about the use of buttons on projects.
