JERSEY SHORE FATHER'S DAY

Today, I broke a record for myself ... I completed four cards and three of them were challenge cards! The way I did it was so easy, I almost feel like I cheated! My inspiration started with THIS CARD by Angie Tieman, schwooo!. Here is my version of Angie's card:
Every week, I wish for more time to complete three of my favorites challenges: Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge, Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try, and Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Challenge. After completing the card above, I realized that I could use the same supplies for each of these challenges.

Here are the supplies I kept on my work station to complete the four cards...
Stamps: All Holidays
Paper: Jersey Shore DP, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Brilliant Blue, and Bashful Blue CS
Ink: Wild Wasabi Classic Ink Pad, Pumpkin Pie and Brilliant Blue Markers
Embellishments: Brilliant Blue Brads and Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: 1/4" and 1/2" Circle Punch

Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
Helpful Hint: When creating the circles behind the brads, poke the hole through cardstock with the paper piercing tool on the mat pack before punching the cardstock with the 1/4" and 1/2" circle punches.

This card is for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try.
This card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", and uses Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #43.
And finally, this card uses Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #33 Sketch. This card also measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
Thanks for looking!

Fabulous! I've used this paper a lot and it's funny because when I first saw it I didn't think it was 'me'. Of course, I realized I don't make card for myself and this paper is great for kids' cards, masculine cards...all kinds of cards! :-)

the Tapler Ohana said...

Well how cool is that!?! I love it! My creative limit seems to be about 2 projects a day, then my brain is fried and the creative juices just stop flowing. I'm totally CASEing these by the way!!

Jessie/knightrone said...

Can you say....FABULOUS!!! You really rocked all three sketches!! Awesome job on these!!!

Dottie K. said...

Wow these are just gorgeous! Love all the different layouts and that paper is perfect. :)

I love, love these father's day cards. Who says masculine cards have to be dark and distressed. These are perfect.
