Stampin'Up Father's Day Cards.............

Wednesday is the day I look after my baby niece so I don't usually have much time to get anything done but now Jodie has finished Uni until the Autumn she likes to spend time with her baby cousin,giving me the chance to sneek up to my craft room.Today we've had a play date with my friends little girl,it's been many years since I've had to do all this but I'm loving it.




 Anyway back to some crafty things,it's Fathers Day on Sunday so I have made a few quick cards using Stampin'Up products. I'm not good with men's cards,I prefer pretty but sometimes you have to make a card for the men in your life.




Products Used
Patterned Paper-SU Newsprint
Stamps-Occasional Greetings


 I stamped the base card with SU Sanded background stamp in black ink,I adhered a strip of black card at the bottom and covered the chipboard letters in the map paper from SU Newsprint.


The last card I adhered three strips of patterned paper (now retired) and stamped a collage of leaves in various colours onto some kraft card and stamped the 'Happy Father's Day'.

Products Used
Stamps-French Foliage,Something to Celebrate(hostess set)
Other -Linen Thread,Neutral Designer Button.

Today over at Scrapbookers Anonymous is the reveal of the Design Team cards  using the leftovers from their LO's. You've still got plenty time to enter and be in with a chance of winning an Echo Park 'Summer Days' paper pack. Here's my card using Prima Sweet Fairy, left over from my LO.



Thanks for taking the time to look, I'll be back soon with some girly, pretty projects,lol.
