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.

  DSCN6333 DSCN6336
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!

Cool Treats Swap Shares

Cool TreatsHi Everyone! Today I thought I'd share a few SWAP cards I received from other demonstrators. Unfortunately, the swap above did not have a name included. Put I love the play of using Very Vanilla Cardstock as a base. It works even though Whisper White is the color in the Designer Paper.

DSCN6241This card was designed by Monica Giberti. Love how this card showcases the cone swirl stamp that when used, makes the cone look like a tasty treat! A dash of Clear Wink of Stella adds some sparkle!

 

DSCN6244

 And holy schma oly! This card is layered up as high as the ice cream cone on top! Stacey Lane is the designer and I love the layers!

This weekend I will have a One-Sheet Wonder made with this suite! It will be a FREE online class with any January order.
