Father's Day Cards

 My first card is for my husband. He loves Hawaii so I went with a fun tropical color theme and stamp set Happy Days from Verve. I was going to enter it into their June challenge but it didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped. But oh well. It still works for the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge, and SCS direct to paper technique and Play Date Cafe's Challenge this week. I stamped everything in versamark, then embossed it with white EP and applied the ink directly to the paper over it wiping it off the embossed part with a paper towel. I hand cut everything out and layered it up.

The second card for my father I like much better!!! I did some insane masking using 3 different stamps to create this fishing scene which I then colored with copics. I used Gina K's stamp TV Free For All Friday challenge which was a sketch AND to use TREES. So to continue that theme I embossed the two background panels with Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder.
 I hope you all have a wonderful day with the dad's in your life!

  5. Tessa,
    First, let me say your cards are beautiful! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today for the CSS Blog Hop and leaving me such a nice comment. You asked what CB embossing folder I used. It is actually a Sizzix folder that I picked up at JoAnn's. I don't know what is is called though. Sorry about that. Hey, I saw that you had some handbags for sale, do you still have the Dooney? If so, what color is it? Thanks again!


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
