Father's Day Cards 2009

Here are the cards I made for Father's Day. The top one is what I made for my FIL. I know, I know. It's "supposed" to be a pitcher of lemonade. However, my FIL LOVES iced tea, so..... The yellow paper started out white and I used direct to paper with SU! Yoyo Yellow. I also used Pacific Point paper and ink. I stamped the image in black and colored it in with SU! pastels and a blendy pen.
The second card is what I made for my dad. He is a bit of a jokester, so I told him he was getting a tie for Father's Day just like he did umpteen years ago when I was a kid. I had seen folded ties on SCS, but had trouble finding a tutorial until I looked here
I folded the tie out of Manchester DSP and attatched it to a Sahara Sand Card. I sponged very heavily around the edges of the cardstock with my Chocolate Chip ink and around the scalloped circle punch with Baja Breeze. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip with Jive Alphabet by All Night Media .
OK. Now it's your turn to stamp!

My first post

Well, I guess I've looked at blogs enough that I had to have one, too.

Here is a card I've been working on for my dear friend that is retiring at the end of June. I thought this would be the perfect special technique to use for a card for her. It is called a Tri-Shutter card and I found a link to a tutorial on SCS in the Technique Challenge. It is TLC221. I used SU! Bordering Blue, So Saffron, and Bella Birds paper, SU! ink in Bordering Blue, Chocolate Chip and Pirouette Pink, Offray Ribbon, Pearl Stickers, Scallop Oval Punch, and Fiscars Rope Border Punch. I left the right hand panel blank for a personal note.
