Another THoughts of you share

I am lovin Parisian Breeze DSP and I am really gonna miss it, I can't get enough of it! I created this card, with another stamp from the "Thoughts of Father" Stamp set. I also used Timber Brown Staz On, Ranger, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, a flower from all the pretties kit (Stamped with En Francais, using Timber Brown Ink). I colored the image using my copics and the sentiment comes from Matchbox messages.

Using Distress Inks

One of my favorite Scrappers, Jennifer McGuire is hosting a class on the two peas website this month, she has a fantastic video today on Distress Inks! I love love love distress ink! If there is one product, I wish SU would come up with, its distress inks! I love to incorporate distress ink into my stamping and scrapbooks. Check out this video on distress inks and be sure to check out the Thinking Inking Class over at two peas, where Jennifer will be creating three videos a week and lots of tips and tutorials on stamping!

A Fathers Day Card Share


My Dad and I arent very close and I always have a hard time finding a card that suits him. For most of the last 20 years, I purchased something funny, cuz all those sappy sentiments don't really apply. Don't get me wrong, I love my dad and accept him as he is, but, I never felt comfortable giving cards that said things I really didnt feel. I just started making cards this year and decided with all the stuff I have laying around, there was no need to purchase a card this year, so I used Parisian Breeze DSP and Thoughts of Father Stamp set and this is what I came up with. Simple and attractive without saying something I dont mean. Now, I just need to get it in the mail ;)
