June 1 - June 28
Our inspiration words for this month are It's A Man's World. Depending on the man or men in your life, there are surely lots of ways to go with this one.
The card shown below is a Father's Day card for my father-in-law. (Yep, hubby actually let me make one for his dad this year. The trick was promising to fill most of the inside with a sentiment so that all hubby had to do was sign our names.)
But, I digress. Back to the card.
My father-in-law was a pretty good handyman back in the day. Hence, the tool theme of my card. :)
I'm pretty proud of this card for a couple of reasons.
|One Stamp = Three Images|
- The embossing is so crisp. I used a teeny, tiny brush to remove extraneous powder before setting the images with my heat gun.
- The three tools were actually one stamp. I really didn't want to cut the stamp because I want the option to use it as is on future projects. So, I did some pretty careful masking to come up with the three separate tools.
And, I hope you will stop by Words 2 Scrap By to learn more about this month's challenge, as well as to see the other I-Teamers' cards. They sure are one talented group of gals!
I'll be back later today with the newest Cards in Envy challenge. Hope you'll come back for that post and stop by CIE to check out all the fun cards posted by the CIE DT.
And, with any luck, I'll be back with a third post to share a Mask-erade Online Card Class homework project or two. :)
Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
