Packed For Dad Card & Bookmark

For Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew CF (Catalog Focus) challenge this month, we were asked to focus on page 216 of Stampin' Up's Catalog & Idea Book and use either the cork, magnet, On Board , wood, or window sheets.  i chose the wood sheets as I had never used them before and figured it would definitely be a challenge for me to use them.

I made a card and matching bookmark for Dad or any masculine birthday.  You could easily change this to a Father's Day card and gift.

You’re My Type Masculine Card

Carrie  and I got together last month and created cards for our card buffets.  Creating the cards together is twice as much fun plus a whole lot faster!  We chose the stamps and most of the papers for these cards from Stampin' Up!'s 2012 Occasions Mini catalog and the 2012 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration catalog.

Fourth card for my January Card Buffet is a card using You're My Type stamp set from page 27 of Stampin' Up!'s 2012 Occasions Mini catalog. Stampin' Up! had the perfect paper as the background for this card, see the old fashioned typewriter in the background paper?  It is from the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper in Stampin'  Up!'s 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog (this one is not from the mini). We got the inspiration for this card from Stampin' Connection, there were several so we cased the layout and choose different colors and papers.  It could be used for a masculine Valentine or masculine birthday.

Two More For Dads and Granddads!

Best Dad Ever says it all on this Father's Day Card. Need a card for your granddad? Just use the "grand" stamp from Wonderful Favorites #115114 (on the last chance list) to stamp the word "grand" above the word DAD to change the greeting!

And a birthday card using the same stamp set from Stampin' Up! – The Open Sea and Best Dad Ever. I used the One Sheet Wonder technique to create my own "wallpaper" for the side pieces.

Do you need another reason to buy this set? Well, check out the census image stamp in this set! Wouldn't it look great on scrapbook pages in a heritage album, on a card for the family genealogist or for a history buff?

Brad Cog Wheel Embellishment

Another use for the Cogs Double Punch – Add a 3/16" silver brad to the center and you have a masculine embellishment for my Happy birthday banner! If you don't have this punch and want it, you NEED to get it before Stampin' Up!'s supply runs out. This punch is on the  discontinued list.
