CPS Sketch # 222 – Happy Father’s Day

  • Stamp – Inkadinkado “Happy Father’s Day”
  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Curio” collection
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Edges inked with ColorBox Chalk ink – Chestnut Roan

This card is my husband’s Father’s Day card, made with the current sketch at CPS: Sketch #222. I really like these papers combined–and works well for a masculine card. Thanks for visiting.

OWH – Starburst

  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Boxer” collection (5 different patterns, including the flower)
  • Die cuts – Flower made with “Easy Rosette 017” by The Cat’s Pajamas. After I cut them out (you use two rosettes to make one flower), I accordian folded them and adhered the two pieces to make the flower.  Thanks is stamped on a Spellbinder’s Nestabilities die from the “Curved Rectangles” set.
  • Stamp – Lockhard Stamp Company
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Brad – American Crafts
  • Edges inked with ColorBox Chalk inks.

I followed the tutorial on Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps to make this Starburst card. I enjoy paper piecing and had never made a starburst pattern before. This is really good for using up paper scraps as well!
