Shilo Letters, Father's Day and My Pink Stamper Blog Hop Challenge

A while ago, I started working on this project for my granddaughters room. They are wood letters that I picked up at Wal-Mart that spell out her name. I sanded them down, Mod Podged patterned paper onto the letters, and then added butterfly crystals, flower crystals and ribbon to the letters. They are now finished. I think they turned out pretty cute.

I made some Father's Day cads to sell. I used Kraft cardstock, patterned paper on the background to look like a dress shirt, and patterned paper in the shape of a tie. I think they turned out nice without being feminine looking.

Happy Father's Day stamp is by My Favorite Things.

On Friday, My Pink Stamper had her monthly blog hop and the challenge was to make something with a summer theme. Well, summer means a lot of different things to me, but there are always a ton of graduation parties at the beginning of summer and I had to make a couple of graduation cards for my mom to take to a graduaiton she was invited to so that's what I did. She wanted me to make a spinner card with the mortar board being the part that spins back and forth. So, the idea for the card came from my mom and I made her vision come to life. I used My Pink Stampers Everyday Life stamp in the spinner window and I cut the graduaiton cap from the Wild Card cartridge and outlined the "shadow" area with a white colored pencil and added gold stickles for the tassle. I also added frosted lace stickles dotted in the corners. I think they turned out pretty good.
