Pilin' on the Traditional Recipe

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Something Old, Something New, Something Blue. We're sponsored by Eureka Stamps, but this time I made a Father's Day card featuring patterned paper & a sentiment piece from the "Handyman Hero" collection that came free with an issue of PaperCraft Inspirations

Old: Papers & wood from stash
New: Memento dye inks (Desert Sand & Gray Flannel)
Blue: Papers

I made the nut-patterned paper myself. I used a die, a punch, & hand-cutting to make the stamp out of foam. I made two stamps, one for each color.
  1. Cards in Envy: Male (flat cards only)
  2. Cardz 4 Guyz: Father's Day
  3. Craft Rocket Challenges: For A Man/Boy
  4. Crafty Boots: Masculine
  5. Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper: Patterned Paper
  6. Ooh La La Creations: One for the Boys
  7. Live & Love Crafts Challenge: Sketch
  8. The Male Room: Father's Day
  9. Simon Says Stamp: Father's Day / For A Guy
  10. Going Grey With Scrap-Creations: Father's Day/Masculine
