Father's Day Pin Stripe Card

It's a Tag...it's a Card and it's a Pin Striped Suit! 
 
A very Masculine card just in time for Father's Day.  The best part, this card has a very Vintage feel.  To achieve this tag turned card you'll need a #10 Tag folded in half.  Cut a piece of black soot distress paper to match the front of the folded tag.  I scored the black paper at 1/4" then sanded to create the pin stripe.  Be sure to line the stripes of the pocket to the stripes of the suit.  The pocket is hand cut and I used the Torn Notebook for the top of the pocket.
 
Fold the "Lapel" back to expose the "shirt", then simple stamp.  I stamped a compass stamp.

 
Add some brads and the swivel clip and attach to your clock.  You want that Pocket Watch feel.

 
I little strip of Film Strip Ribbon pops the pocket and tuck in your clock adhering with a glue dot.  Attach the pocket with the tiny attacher and then add a pen nib.

 
A simple card just in time for Father's Day.  I adore this Suit Card!  Check out Simon Says Challenge Blog and add your Father's Day project! 
 
Hoping this inspires your Father's Day crafting.  This one is going to my guy for Father's Day;)

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
