A Couple Things (6-16)

Hi all!

Just a couple quick things today!

First, a card in honor of the dads out there.


Happy Father’s Day to all of them!

This is just a simple card I recently submitted to Paper Crafts magazine that wasn’t selected  for publication (and I know those wild and crazy editors hate the word “reject”, but I am going to use it anyway.). It was a reject, people. 😉

For me, part of the adventure of submitting is sometimes seeing what does get selected and what doesn’t. 🙂 I sometimes scratch my head. And, other times, I think “Heck yeah, baby!” You know the old phrase: “You win. You lose some.”

Anyhoo, going back to the card: I stamped the words with the Dad Rocks by Ali Edwards stamp set from Technique Tuesday. I was going for a paint splattered look here so I flicked spray mists all over the panel before I did the stamping.


Simple technique and a simple card, but still a fun one to make.

One other little thing: The folks over at Simon Says Stamp! invited me to share some projects over on their blog again. Here’s a little peek of what you’ll find over there.


I’d be honored if you’d consider checking it out.
And thank you again, Simon and friends! It’s a total pleasure… and honor… when you invite me to play.

Be back again later. gators!

  1. Nice F.D. card. Like all the spatters and Ali’s great sentiment. Saw your cards on the SS post. Each one is terrific. Like the designs, papers, stamping. 🙂

  2. Its a winner to me. I love it they will be sorry they didn’t choose it.. I love this idea of the splats of color. Great effective touch. must give it a try..I’ll remember not to submit it though..LOL

  3. Well, if I were a dad I’d consider this card a winner! How awesome are the splatters that mixed together a tiny bit?!! This would especially be a perfect card for my FIL who is a painter!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
