It is pouring rain here, with a tornado watch in effect, so I decided to craft the night away while I wait it out. My husband is out of town for a couple of days so that leaves me with two dogs that clearly do not like thunder! It isn't too bad though, they just curl up by my feet and let me do my work.
I made a couple of cards tonight, and both of them are pretty simple. This first one is for the challenge at Celebrate the Occasion. Their current challenge is to create something for a male birthday and to use a circle. I used Wild Card to cut the circle card base, it is 5" around. I cut two circles, one at 4 3/4" and one at 4 1/2" for my mats. The patterned paper is from DCWV's Guy Stack. I used Father's Day to cut the golf club/ball. I embossed the tee with Forest Branches and the golf ball with Polka Dots, I used the debossed side for that one. I also added glossy accents to the ball. I stamped my sentiment, which is from Fiskars, in coffee bean ink by Tsukineko. I finished off the card by adding some buttons. I made this one at the request of my mom, it is for her brother's birthday.
The second card today is for the ice cream cone challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2. I used the ice cream cone from Indie Art and cut it at 4." I pop-dotted the ice cream part of the cone, and also pop-dotted the whole cone to the card. The white layer is embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder. The patterned paper is from Penny Lane by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is stamped in jumbo java ink by Tsukineko and is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the Kids Incorporated set.
There you go. Two quick and easy cards for tonight, I hope you enjoy!
