First Friday's Blog Hop - Retiring In-Colors & Custom Tee

Hi! It's the First Friday of the month and that means...

 

FFBH

DSCN6339
Hi Everyone! It's First Friday's again and time to Hop! This month's theme is the retiring 2015-2017 In Colors. It's always sad to say goodbye to retiring products, but it means we can make room for new trends and colors!

I focused on the retiring In- Colors of Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Delightful Dijon for my color pallet. And the umber fun Custom Tee Bundle with the Tie Dyed Stamp Set. 

Here's an idea for Dad's birthday or Father's Day Card...for your Rad Dad. Gotta get the muscle shirt out for summer - since he's BBQing, fishing, mowing or by the pool!

DSCN6331 DSCN6332Layers:
Card Base - 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 Mint Macaron - After the card front is run thru the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Folder - I trimmed to  a card base of 5-1/2 x 4-1/8. The embossing shortens a side by a smidge.
Delightful Dijon 4-1/8 x 3-1/8
Whisper White 4 x 3

General Instructions: Stamp Rad Dad down both sides of Whisper White layer - alternating ink colors. With Tie Dyed Stamp, stamp tie dye in 3 colors. Die cut out t-shirt. With Archival Basic Black, ink around the tee to give it definition. Layer elements.

Vintage Birthday Card - something 25 years old is officially vintage! So not just for girls of a certain age :)

Layers:
Card Base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 Mint Macaron
Delightful Dijon 5 x 4-1/4
Watermelon Wonder 4-1/4 x 3-1/4
Whisper White 4 x 3

General Instructions - Emboss Delightful Dijon layer with Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. With 3 colors - stamp tie images. Die cut using female T-Shirt die. Ink around the edges for definition. Stamp Vintage in 3 colors on the whisper white. Stamp and fuzzy cut (hand cut) the sentiment. Die cut banner. Layer all components.T

Tie Dyed Stamp Set is very addictive, just like tie dying...you want to keep playing with color combinations to see what you get!
