My husband's hobby is home brewing. He enjoys to play around with different recipes and types of beer. So when I saw this card on Lynn Pratt's blog http://stampndesign.blogspot.com/ I knew that I would have to try it. I kept it pretty much the same, but added my own little twist.
It was a pretty quick card, just a few templates to cut. I stamped the Happy Birthday in the new Perfectly Penned stamp set, and embossed the black with the houndstooth EF. Very CAS and masculine which my husband prefers. Next up are some projects that I did for Mackie's cheerleading team.
Since we share our football team with another school, we also share the cheering responsibilities. These are little 3x3 cards that we made for our other shared cheerleaders. The words were computer generated using the RGB values that match SU colors. I also made some bag tags for our girls so they can keep their bags straight.
Both sets of alphabet stamps are retired, they are Whimsical and Rough Edges. Whimsical is one of my favorites, so I am keeping it! The petite pennant builder and itty bitty punch pack was used. The silver paper gave a good bit of sparkle.
Mackie was also inspired to dress up her binders. She loves zebra prints, so she made these:
She took a 12x12 sheet of textured Very Vanilla, and glued the zebra stripes that she hand cut out of black cardstock on, both have a ribbon and bow, but they are hard to see.
These are the cards she made first to test out the zebra technique. She spritzed the zebra print with smooch spray, and embossed it with the vintage wallpaper EF. Mackie also made the flowers using the crimp, scrunch, separate technique. These are solely her creations that she made on her own. I did none of it. When I see how much she has grown as a stamper/papercrafter it makes me so proud. I love the time that we spend in the craft room together and hope that she continues on with it.
So this is what we have been working on in the last few weeks. The weeks leading up to back to school are very busy. I am looking forward to getting back into a normal schedule, so look for hopefully daily posts from me. If you have any questions about any of the projects above, please ask! As long as your email address is on the comment, I always reply. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy!
