Wellies for Dad

As my dad is a farmer I thought the wellies stamp from "Scene in a garden" would be perfect for his father's day card. The wellie boarder was used with the help of the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help line up the essential tool in this case! The greetings stamp and tag stamp are both from Inca and are ones I've had for years. The paper is certainly celery designer paper from the retired list. The edges of the paper were ripped and then chalked with Night of Navy to tie the whole card together.
Stamps: Scene in agraden, Happy Father's Day and Tag from Inca
Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White and certainly celery dsp (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Black, Certainly Celery and Night of Navy Markers
Accessories: Stampin' Pastels, Pewter Jumbo Eyelet and Certainly Celery 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals

Crafty Inklings 1st Challenge

Crafty Inklings is my upline group formed by Michelle. Michelle set us the challenge to use the following items to make a card or 3D object.

the paper is from the Washington Apple collection and uses the colours Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie. These are not colours I found easy to work with together, so it's taken me a while to figure out what I was going to do. But here it is....

The base card is So Saffron with the background stamped using Versamark and a stamp from Seeing spots. Inside the circle uses the "thank you" stamp from Seeing spots in Bashful Blue ink and the flower in So Saffron. The card was finished off with the elements from the challenge.


Stamps: Seeing Spots

Cardstock/ Paper: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Washington Apple dsp

Ink: So Saffron, Bashful blue and Versamark

Accessories: 1" Double Stitch Grosgrain ribbon in Bashful Blue and clip from Petwer HodgePodge Hardware
