Pleasant Pheasant

Sneak Peek Alert! Today, I'm previewing a NEW stamp set that will debut July 1st - Autumn Days. When I first lay eyes on this fab. find one thought came to mind, "versatile!". This pleasant pheasant and his partnering stamps are going to be on your 'must have it' list for fall projects.

We're going to wrap up several days of masculine motifs with this Father's Day card... made especially for my own, dear old dad.
  • It all starts with a layout is from Splitcoast Sketch Challenge SC233.
  • My card base is an Always Artichoke stripe from To The Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper collection. Talk about a manly mix!
  • Are you loving the rich gold I'm featuring? It's the NEW In Color, Crushed Curry. I zipped a piece thru. the Big Shot using a Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug folder.
  • The main panel was stamped using Crushed Curry and Always Artichoke. My golden sheaves of wheat were arranged with the help of my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig, and my pheasant was added in Chocolate Chip. TIP: I re-stamped my pheasant on a separate sheet and trimmed just his body out so that I could pop him with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • To personalize the card I whipped out my Jumbo Outline Alphabet and created 'dad'... quick and special.
  • For a few extra sassy somethings, I punched a coordinating border using the Scallop Edge Punch and added a few Vintage Brads... because men always like hardware... even if it is the crafty kind.

As you know from our private blog . . . I think this card is fantastic! How are you and Carrie getting your texturz so crisp. I stopped using water (or alcohol is apparently popular) . . . are you using it or have you perfected the tension on the sandwich? Hugs, Mary
