I realize that Father's Day is not until June, but this card isn't necessarily about Father's Day.  It could be for any occasion for anyone who calls themselves "DAD"

I must apologize for the cropped off picture.  For some reason my editing program was acting up this morning.  Maybe it's the freezing drizzle!

The letters for "DAD" were stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with Delightful Dijon ink, cut out, and the edges sponged with the same ink.  Each letter was adhered, at an angle, to some Basic Black card stock.  This panel was adhered to the card front using dimensionals. Metallic enamel hearts were placed inside each letter "D".

The basic card stock is Basic Black, layered with Very Vanilla and then Urban District Specialty DSP.  The latter was cut into 2 pieces, with each of the different sides adhered side by side.

The sentiment was stamped with Delightful Dijon on the same coloured card stock, notched at one end before adhering it to the card near the lower "D"

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Urban District
Inks: Delightful Dijon
Papers: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Urban District Specialty DSP
Accessories: Metallic enamel shapes, dimensionals

Urban Birthday

As my son so aptly put it when I showed him this masculine birthday card - not every guy is into tools.  Up until today tools were my favourite embellishment I put on masculine cards.
So today, I used the Urban Underground Specialty DSP with its black, gray and delightful Dijon colors to make a guy card.

The basic black cardstock base is layered with Urban Underground Specialty DSP.
A 2" strip of the reverse side of the  DSP was embossed with the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder, matted with Basic Black cardstock and adhered to the left side of the card front. A bit of sponging with black ink brought out the embossing a bit better.
The sentiment was stamped with Versa Mark onto Basic Black card stock and embossed with White embossing powder. A metallic embellishment was added on both sides of "Happy".This sentiment piece was matted with another embossed piece of DSP and then with Basic Black card stock.  It was then adhered to the card front using dimensionals.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Big on Birthdays
Inks: Versa Mark, Black Memento
Papers: Basic Black, Urban Underground Specialty DSP
Accessories: Hexagonal Dynamic Embossing Folder, Metallic enamel shapes, dimensionals, white embossing powder.

Egg Carton for Open House

It's really a lot of fun (and maybe a little messy) to alter the new egg cartons featured in the Occasions Catalogue.

Egg Carton:
This egg carton was spritzed with a solution of rubbing alcohol and 15 drops of Daffodil Delight re-inker.  To get the colour I desired, I repeated this process twice.

After putting 4 chocolate eggs inside, I adhered a piece of Serene Designer Paper matted with Delightful Dijon card stock.  A new delicate paper doillie (white side up) was adhered on top of the DSP. A piece of  5/8"  striped Emerald Envy ribbon was wrapped around the egg carton and tied into a bow on the top.

A 2 by 4" piece of Whisper White was punched with the Scalloped topper punch and the bottom corners rounded using the corner rounder punch.  The image of one of the chickens from the "Hey Chick" stamp set was stamped with black Memento ink and coloured with ink pads and a blender pen.  A strip of DSP was adhered to the bottom of this tag and the corners rounded as well.

The tag was attached to the egg carton by means of a 1/8" Emerald Envy ribbon which was tied to the bow on top of the carton.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Hey Chick
Inks: Black Memento, Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight reinker
Papers: Whisper White, Delightful Dijon, Serene Scenes DSP stack
Accessories: Egg carton, Spritzer, Rubbing Alcohol, 5/8" striped Emerald Envy ribbon, 1/8" Emerald Envy ribbon, Blender pen, Delicate Doillie, scallop topper punch.

Here's another one I did - but this time for a birthday.  I used the "Happy Celebrations" stamp set on the top of the egg carton.

The egg carton was spritzed with Bermuda Bay in rubbing alcohol, decorated with Cupcakes and Carousels DSP and tied with gold metallic ribbon (SAB).
