Project #2 for the Cuttlebug Blog! "All About Dads"

Here is my second project for the Cuttlebug Blog!!
I chose to make a frame and card for my dad who loves to golf!
Frame Info: I used the herringbone embossing folder on the letters. I chose the Mickey Font and the Everyday Paper dolls for the golfer. He is cut at 5.5 inches. For his face, I used my peachy keen stamps. Added some inked edges and a little gold pen to draw out the details on the shirt, shoes, clubs..and there you go!
For the card:
I again used my herringbone folder on the background paper (which that paper and the folder and other goodies where provided by Crazy Scraps..check them out if you haven't yet..they have daily deals which are AWESOME! ) For his hat, I heat embossed some of it..then with a brown marker I wrote #1 Pap on it. I again..added some gold pen lines for details on the clubs, shirt and shoes..This golfer was cut at 5 inches...Then of course, a corner photo punch and then the threading water punch was used with the blue cardstock!
So if you have not joined any of the challenges yet on the Cuttlebug Blog..I urge you to do so..they are a lot of fun...they get you using your embossing folders and get your creativity flowing!
Thanks for looking...leave a comment if you wish!

My first project for Sugar Sweet Paper Treats!

Cheryll issused the challenge this month!! The challenge--Sewing! I created this card using faux stitching cause the sewing machine and I are "fighting" LOL! I wanted it to work and it didn' won! I was all excited, got the sewing machine out of the box, pulled it in, got my papers all lined up--oh ya--this wasn't the first card I was making--LOL! I start sewing on my card, all excited, then notice only a couple spots were actually I see the needle came unthreaded..simple enough..I fixed that..I start sewing again to discover it is sewing the same spot over and over and over again..I have HUGE spot of white thread..then under it where the bobbin is it a ton of thread..I am not sure how that happened..but had a heck of time getting the card to come off of the threaded since I am not mechanically inclined..I had to unplug my machine (because I do not know how to thread it..I have my hubby do it for me..but he was at work) and start on this card instead! I guess I better learn how to thread it and hard can it be? I was like this with my ATG..I didn't dare run out of tape when my hubby wasn't home, I couldn't figure out how to reload it..I finally learned and it it simple!

Now for the card details!

Threading Water punch

Faux Stitching template-HOTP "Easy Stitches"

Cuttlebug Blog's June Project #1 All About Dads/Fathers

So I bought Robotz for the font (thanks Jenny for pointing it out to me LOL) and once I opened it and starting looking at the cute robots I couldn't wait to make one!! Here is my first Robotz card!
I used diamond cut and stars embossing folders..I just love the way the diamond cut looks with the metallic paper (which Ann and I picked up at the Stamp show in Ohio)..My robot was cut at 4 inches...He is actually 3 background then the gray and blue...I inked his "wheels" with silver pigment ink to help them stand out against the black background. I also inked the blue cardstock..added a couple brads and some googly
eyes!! What do you think??

Cuttlebug Blog's June Challenge All About Fathers!!

Here is a card I made for the challenge over at the Cuttlebug Blog!! Don't forget to join us every month for the challenge!! You could win an awesome prize!
For this card...I wanted to create a camo look so I used some glossy paper and 3 alcohol inks (Expresso, Cloudy Blue and lettuce)..For the embossing, I chose Herringbone and Swiss Dots.
The "doll" is from Everyday Paper Dolls--cut at 3 1/2 inches. Paper is mostly Bo Bunny..(thanks Crazy Scraps for providing so many great goodies)
The card was cut at 11 inches by 4 inches..scored in 2 places to create the fold..on the inside will be the sentiment.
Other products used:
Cat's Eye Ink for the ink on the face (which for some reason was very wet and smudged :(
Peachy Keen Stamps
Gold Pen for outlines on the outfit--the collar has a brown marker but is hard to see--white pen for his fingernails..
So what do you think???
