Just a quick post to show a couple of cards I have made with Fathers Day in mind.

I purchased some new stamps, tissue paper and Paper Artsy paints the other day, then embarked on a crafting frenzy, there was projects everywhere but none finished. Now I have completed the cards I shall go back and tackle the rest.

I used Crafty Individuals Stamp CI 295 Discovery and painted it using Distress Inks Scattered Straw and Peeled Paint using the Tim Holtz Water Brush to highlight the ship and border.

It is mapped on Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper stack. There are some handy pages which can be divided into 6 x 6 just right for cards. A length of bakers twine just to finish it off.

I wanted to keep it simple for posting.

The second one is very similar but mapped on some older paper I found. That is the joy of keep moving your craft room from one place, you "Discover" things that you saved because they are too nice to use straight away.

I hope you have a great crafty weekend, I'm going to see if my paint has dried.

Please leave a comment, no matter how small. It's nice to know I am not alone out here.

Thank you


  1. like the cards...shall have to think about getting some of that bakers twine.
    What have you added in the corner of the second card??
    Also love the ATP time clock....want one for me!

  2. Thank you Michelle for your kind comment.
    The sort of netting in the corner of the second card is a part of ribbon that was sent around a gift from a very generous friend June.
    Jamie sends the link for the clock, there's lots to choose from.
