Freshly Made Sketches #392

Another masculine card for Father's Day. I found this stamp in a clearance bin....and it is perfect for the man who has stepped up to the plate and been a father to my youngest son. I greatly appreciate the time and patience he has shown my son.  The stamp could have easily been a photo image of them on a hunting outing.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches, with a very heavy emphasis from Jen's card!

I stamped my image in pigment ink....I love the creamy smoothness you get from stamping with pigment ink. I live in a dry climate, so the ink dries almost as quickly as dye ink.  If you are in a more humid climate, you would need to set with a heat gun or emboss the image.  I added a bit of twine to add a more rustic feel to my wood tones.

Happy Father's Day!

Hope everyone is having a Happy Father's Day!  I pulled together a simple masculine card for a fishing enthusiast.  I couldn't resist adding in a touch of burlap. My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I used a variety of supplies, with all of them being retired.  You might still be able to locate the fishing papers, which are from The Great Outdoors collection by Carta Bella.

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
Addicted-To-Stamps-For A Boy/Man
Crafty Calendar Challenge-Masculine
Die Cuttin Divas-Masculine (My burlap banners are die cut)

Meet the Office Manager...

I would like to introduce Tiger, the official Office Manager.  I will admit, I tend to be a messy crafter!  Thankfully, I was blessed with a large crafting desk....though my work space often ends up being about 12" x 12", which usually works.  I can manage a card or a single scrapbook page in that amount of space.  Until "Quality Control, aka Tiger" steps in......and dwindles my space down to about 6" x 6". Sir Tiger definitely makes his presence known, doing everything but plopping down on my actual project.  He also tends to hoard the embellishments and is known to leave the room fairly well decorated!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
