Clean & Simple plus Sunday Sketches

I have three more cards for you - each pretty understated and easy..... a long way from some of the creations I had last week.

This, Birthday Ties, card uses the Sketch from The Sweetest Thing. It's another masculine card that I'm hoping to use for a Masculine Stamp a Stack this month. I must say that as soon as my daughter and I saw this stamp set we knew we HAD to have it. My husband wears a tie every day - to school and meetings; and has set a challenge set for a different tie for every meeting he has. So - this image is going to get worked into a Father's Day card for sure this year!!!

Stamp Set - Best Dad Ever Paper - Whisper White, Night of Navy, Regals Patterns DSP, More Mustard Other - Oval Punch, Gold Brads, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch

The second card is for Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast - Susan - AKA LateBlossom. She creates beautiful clean, crisp cards - I have cased her Summer Silhouette using a different stamp set and ribbon but keeping the crispness.

Stamp Set - Thoughts and Prayers, Best Dad Ever Paper - Whisper White Other - Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals.

Finally - here is another card we made at our Extravaganza - using my current favorite paper. We used the new Postage Stamp Punch - showing that it works perfectly for a quilt look - I'd like to do it again on a matted piece and put the whole thing through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing folder! Next Time!

Stamp Set - Four Frames Paper - Whisper White, Peach Pizzazz, Paisley Petals DSP Ink - Peach Pizzazz

It's going to be a busy week - lots of evening events - Should keep me out of trouble - maybe!
Thanks for stopping by! Joan

these are awesome... the tie one is my favorite. My husband doesn't wear a tie to work.. he wears combat boots and a beret, but my dad wore a tie every day to work after he retired from the Army and went to work civil service. Perfect card! thanks for sharing ~ Pam
