Stampin' Up! Bear Hugs Father's Day Card

For this card with the Bear Hugs stamp set, I used variety of greens (Old Olive, Mellow Moss and Mint Macaron) to give an outdoorsy look for a Father's Day card. The sketch I used was MOJO Monday #440 (MOJO440) I love the color scheme in the English Garden Designer Series Paper, and I think the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder adds needed texture as well. You could also make it a birthday card of course.

Remember that Mellow Moss is one of the In Colors that will retire at the end of this catalog, so if you love it, order more now.

I used the old stand-by Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment inside the card....

Happy Home Window Easel Cards

I could not decide which card to create for my customers to make for class last night, so I went with a choice of whichever they liked.  The Pink Pirouette card looks like spring in Oklahoma with all the blooming redbuds, but then again, the wind does sweep down the plains pretty well too, so the kite visual is also timely.  I usually don't make a sketched look for the main image, but I think I like it. These fun images make it easy to say "it's a good day". :)
