Victorine Originals Challenge #3 ~ Father's Day

Welcome to a new challenge at Victorine Originals!  This one has a theme of Father's Day.
For this challenge, I created several cards using the Victorine Originals stamps of Birch Trees and Ducks in Flight. Aren't they fantastic wildlife stamps?! I stamped them on kraft paper with versafine onyx black ink using my stamping tool to align each one perfectly. I used a white colored pencil to highlight parts of the image.
I used GMD stitched rectangle dies on this card as well as a Little Yellow Bicycle thanks die.  The papers are from DCWV's Adventurer and 6x6 Burlap stacks.  Adhesives I used include ATG, tacky glue and Scotch foam tape.
Here are all the cards I created!
So, now on to the details on how to play along with the challenge...
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow this theme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Butterfly Friendship Card

Hello everyone!  It is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.  I love the card I am sharing with you today.  I mean really, pink and butterflies...what's not to love?!  
The focal point of the butterfly was created by using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters, and Mustard Seed.  I randomly blended them on a piece of white cardstock.
Then I splashed a little water on the Distress Inks and dabbed it off with a paper towel then heat set it.  The butterfly stamp is from Victorine Originals' Butterfly set.  I stamped it with Verasfine Onyx Black ink and then fussy cut around the butterfly.
I curved the butterfly's wings a bit and adhered the center of it on the GMD Regal Doily die cuts with mini Glue Dots.  The background of the card was made by adhering cuts from the smallest GMD Regal Doily die set all over the black printed paper.  Then I ran the paper through my Big Shot using a GMD stitched rectangle die.  All the patterned papers are from DCWV's Watercolor stack.
The sentiment is so beautiful and was also from the Butterfly set.  The finishing touch was three yellow enamel dots.

Here is a look at the Butterfly Set that I used:

Olive Birthday Card

Hello all!  I know what you are thinking...olives?  REALLY?!  Yes, I couldn't believe I made a card covered in olives either.  I do not like them at all, but this was for a co-worker who loves olives and we had one night at work where her olives were instrumental in us getting through a very interesting night.  So, olives it is!
I used Echo Park's 6x6 Getaway paper pad for this card.  I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to go around the edges of the olives and the white printed layer.  For the olives I simply cut ovals that were 1.5"x1.125" out of the green and 0.5" circles of the red.
The sentiment is from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  The bow is Totally Black Trendy Twine.
Other products I used on this card are GMD Stitched Rectangle dies, ATG, Scotch foam tape, and Scotch Tacky Glue.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Coconut Drink Card

Happy Monday!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  My boys got out of school for summer vacation last week.  Let me tell you, it is great times for them and I am also thankful to not have to get up so early to get them ready for school.  So, my card for today is a summer vacation themed card :)
 I used the coconut card file from SVG Attic's JGW Tropical Haven set and used papers from DCWV's Watercolor and Neutrals Cardstock stacks to create it.
 The coconut drink is popped up with scotch foam tape for extra dimension and I simply had to add the little flowers as a finishing touch.
Are your kids out of school yet?  What are your summer plans?

This card also fits well with the DCWV Mood Board Challenge for May.  Head on over to their Facebook page to check it out!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
