Happy Father's Day & Die-Namites "MAN WEEK"

Happy Father's Day!

First I want to say Happy Father's Day to my wonderful husband, best friend and amazing father!
Here he is (Lee) with our beautiful daughters (Emilee and Olivia).
Today was bittersweet for us specially  for Lee since
 this father's day was spent with just us, no girls. Our girls are out west working
for college....but we did spend the day with family after church.


Now over on the Die-Namites Blog, this past Friday I shared with all
our peeps my take on this past weeks inspiration theme...
you can start with Lynne's blog post, click here, "MAN WEEK" !

The design team was challenge to create a manly card, layout, altered items...


(even though it's called a mom's nest-I used it with different colored card stock)
creating a manly father's love design!

To read about and see more pics on all the details about how I 
created this cute Father's Day Card...jump over to the Die-Namites Blog post, HERE!



With the inspiration to create a manly creation!
I decided to create my card using this Month's Sketch & Dare Challenge!

Here is my little adorable "Mother's Day" Card!
I took the Die-Namites Die "Momma's Love" which is a baby theme die with 
these amazing Tombow USA adhesive products
to create such a touching "Mother's Day" Card!!!!



Momma's Love

Ah a "Momma's Love"... Do you see the heart? ADORABLE...


I first die cut out the "Momma's Love" Die-Namites Die twice out
of white card stock. Colored the images with my CTMH ShinHanart Twin Touch Markers.
As seen below after I fussy cut out a few images to pop up using Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs.
I also used the Tombow USA's Multi Mono Liquid Glue to give the 3D Foam Tabs
extra strengthen to the die cut images.



I am so thrilled with new product....Tombow USA's
 New XTREME Permanent Adhesive!!!
It's FABULOUS....it's such a strong bond it's great for putting paper to paper.


Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs are wonderful for adding depth to your cards!


Another FABULOUS product from Tombow USA is the Multi Mono
Liquid Glue and Aqua Mono Liquid Glue..
it's perfect fit for the Die-Namites Dies cut outs...it 
comes out in a fine line for the details of the die cuts flows on easy!


Here is another look at my "Mother's Day" Card!




Tombow USA and Die-Namites were so generous with products I had
to create another project. I decided to create a little panel canvas
to create another "Mother's Day Gift!


Cotton Ball Flowers



I used the Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs, Multi Mono Liquid Glue
 as well as the Aqua Mono Liquid Glue
 which is a clear glue it was great to adhere the vintage book paper
 to the canvas panel.
three times in white card stock and colored them all the same with markers.
Adding touches of CTMH inks, doilies and
 vintage Mother of Pearl Buttons to the canvas panel...
this will make any mother happy to display
 on a coffee table or in a photo frame!

Happy Hopping along with us...hugs

Here is my card inspired by the Sketch & Color Dare!

I created a Happy Mother's Day Card, using
distress inks with water for a watercolor effect. 



Butterfly Frenzy

I love the watercolor look with Distress Inks...I use my Kraft Mat to 
rub the Distress Inks down onto the mat. Using my water brush picked up
the ink as my color....brushed on layers after layers creating depth.


I love the textures in my card between the card stock, die cut pieces,
watercolors in ink, with the burlap and Petaloo flowers.....colored in Tattered Angels
Glimmer Mists...right down to the tiny Liquid Pearls dots to add softness.

This will make a beautiful card for a mother's day gift.
