Good Monday morning stampin’ peeps!!!
I had a hot but very productive weekend. It has been in the 90’s this weekend and will be today as well. But, then we’ll be cooling off into the mid-80’s. Yay! We went for a nice drive on Saturday afternoon and went out for dinner. It was just too hot to cook. Derek’s car is a convertible Camaro and it is always nice to take a drive a warm days. I also got to work in my studio. Woohoo! I pulled together the designs we’ll be making in this month’s class. (click here for class information) I also took pics of all the fun make-n-takes and sample cards I made for last month’s retreat as well as swaps. I’ll be posting these over the little while so make sure to stop by and check them out.
Today’s card is another of the masculine themed cards we made in May’s Masculine Card Class. I just love the simplicity of it. You could switch the card base and/or strips to any color combination or even Designer Series Paper. You could also replace the three candy dots with HELLO rhinestones or pearls to give more sparkle. Lol!
CARD BASE: The base is a retired favorite of mine Lucky Limeade (3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). I was pulling to together the blue colors for the strips and I wasn’t over the moon with the greens I had to choose from. Luckily (pun intended Lol!) I remembered I had some in my stash and hoped it would be the right shade AND if I had enough for class. Fortunately it was a yes on both!
STRIPS: It is wonderful that Stampin’ Up! has so many coordinating blue shades to choose from. I selected Night of Navy, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Soft Sky.
SENTIMENT: I decided to make this my Father’s Day card and used the “Happy Father’s Day” from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. It was stamped with Night of Navy onto a Whisper White strip. I did put the entire set out so my stampers could choose what sentiment they wanted to use, just in case. I added a subtle bit if bling with the Night of Navy Candy Dots.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Monday and look forward to your comment!
