Whoa…another post?!! ;) I happen to have a Father’s Day card for my #TexturalTuesdays series on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson today. This card came together much easier than most really. I’ve kinda had a “thing” with circles, lately. My dear friend, Carisa, and I were even discussing this when I showed her a peek of the card. It’s just something I can’t get out out my head. When I was thinking about making my dad’s Father’s Day card I just knew this was the route I was going to go.
Making cards for men is just so hard, but when it’s your dad? You really want it to be extra special, too. I just have a heck of a time making cards for my dad. He thinks I’m the world’s greatest card-maker, but he would look at me sideways if I made him a card with golf clubs on it…or a moustache…or…baby animals….ya catch my drift? I still have to make it just so.
That’s why THIS card coming together so easy (mostly) kind of freaked me out. For the “mostly” part you have to check out the CLASSroom blog and read the full tutorial and all my deep, dark secrets. ;) In the meantime, here’s a full look at the card. No peek…I love this card too much. ♥
It’s cool, huh? So even though it’s not quite Father’s Day yet, I think he’s gonna like this one. I wish you all could touch it. But my pops might have something to say about that. ;)
Thank you for stopping by today!

Hi everyone! I have a new #texturaltuesdays post in the CLASSroom today for Ellen Hutson using awesome wood sheets. These sheets are SO COOL and so versatile! The wood sheets can be die cut, embossed, and they’re all self adhesive. They come in a variety of colors and styles. The wood comes in self adhesive tapes and envelopes, as well.
What I made today is a card using the wood sheets with a shaker element using the Keepsake Envelopes by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. I also stamped and die cut some butterflies using the coordinating stamp and die set Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps & Designer Dies, Up the Happy by Julie Ebersole.
The shaker portion is so easy with the Keepsake Envelopes! Just fill…and stick. Can’t get much easier than that. :D Those are MY kind of shaker card. I usually reinforce the top with a few staples. Nothing worse than seeing sequins flying all over the house, but maybe you’re into that?
Here’s a peek at my card:
As usual, for the full post I’d LOVE for you to go to the CLASSroom and see my tutorial to see how I made the card. All the supplies that I used for the card are listed below.
And, in the interest of fairness, the inspiration for the design of my card came from THIS card by my dear friend Heather Pulvirenti. She is wicked talented and I am constantly in awe of her talent. Please visit her blog and look at all her amazing work. She’s FABULOUS!!! ♥
Thank you so much for stopping by today!! Enjoy your week…check out those WOOD SHEETS!! ;)
Hey everyone! I have a new card – Hello Spring – on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today! When I think of Spring I think of my mom’s beautiful daffodil’s that pop up every year. They are so bright, sunny and beautiful. Almost like a ray of sunshine without fail every year in her yard. My mother has such a green thumb, which I sorely lack. Lisa = black thumb. Hahha!!
My Hello Spring card is what I hope a reflection of the beautiful daffodils that I see every year in her yard. They sure make me smile and I hope that it will make YOU smile too. This is a little sneak peek, as usual. So the pretty daffodils (other than the stalks) can be seen on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.
I have a bit of an addiction to watercoloring, so this is a combination of two types: watercolor pencils and Peerless Watercolors. And I love the way the two work together. Heck, there are no rules…why not play with *all* of them?! Do what you love, I say.
I think that this Hello Spring card could be used for so many things, too. Don’t you? It’s just a bright, happy card. Why not make something similar and send it someone whose day needs brightening?
Happy Spring and a Blessed Easter, too. †
I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays card that I’ve aptly named “Fabulous You” for the CLASSroom today. Plenty of beautiful shine and subtle texture on this one today. I’ve really been enjoying using my colored pencils and may have to upgrade. Hahha!!
Here is today’s sneak peek:
Kind of a BIG peek!
The words are from Julie Ebersole’s beautiful die set Totally Fabulous and I created the word “You” from the Basic Alpha Set, to create “Fabulous You”. I thought that would be kind of fun and just a tiny bit different.
This card has two different colors of foil and patterned papers from three different companies. Stitched dies, embossing on patterned paper, inking…and all kinds of fun stuff!! If you want to see how I made it? I do have a tutorial (a wordy one) over on the CLASSroom blog today with lots of pics. ;) And I’d love it if you checked it out.
Hoping that YOU have a fabulous day!
I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project that I named “Be Kind” from the stencil I used on the CLASSroom blog today featuring ways to find your own texture around the house. This was a really fun little canvas for me to make and I hope that you will all enjoy it, too.
Finding new ways to create texture, especially from things that you just have lying around the house, is so much fun. Even if you’re just using it as a focal piece, as I did for two of my pieces on the canvas. But the fun part is that you can see from the pieces used (go to the BLOG ) how these items could be used in so many different ways.
Here is a sneak peek of the Be Kind canvas just to whet your appetite:
I know you can’t tell much from this…it’s a TRUE sneak peek!! But, there’s actually a lot of texture right there. ;) Even just in the words “Be Kind”. I’m loving this sneaky thing. Hahha!!
In the supplies list you’ll be able to see what PRODUCTS I used but not the free stuff, so that won’t give it all away. I really do hope that you’ll check out the full post. It’s not too lengthy and I hope that you’ll find it useful. I know that if you’re a card-maker that enjoys making CAS cards that you may not be super interested in texture, but maybe you would want to use something you learn from the post for art journaling? And it’s really fun and not super messy…not too bad. :)
I hope that you all remember to Be Kind to yourselves first and foremost. It seems that we are all so busy trying to be nice to others we forget about ourselves. Be Kind to YOU. ♥
