I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Dad, You're the Coolest

Hello out there,

It's the first Sunday in June and time for a new Paper Players Challenge. Claire has a fun and timely theme challenge for us this week. It's time to make those Father's Day cards.

I had many ideas bouncing around in my brain and in the end, I decided to pull out my Lawn Fawn "Best Pun Ever" set and make a CAS card.

The popsicles are stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with red, turquoise, and orange Copics. I added a liberal amount of Wink of Stella so they look "frosty." They were cut out with the matching Lawn Fawn dies and mounted on a white panel cut out with a Die-namics die. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. The large white space just called for some sparkle, which I added in the form of red, turquoise and gold sequin.

I have a super busy month of June, compliments of work. I'm starting a project Tuesday that normally takes six weeks and I've been asked to complete it in eight days. Then on the 18th, I leave for two weeks of work travel. I will be glad when July comes, LOL.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Father's Day cards. I know there will be tons of awesomeness!
