#TGIFC112 Let’s Hear It For The Boys: No Bones About It

No Bones About It

Sad news this week……Mojo Monday has posted a final sketch.  I’ve always loved playing along with their weekly sketches and have found that they have stretched my creativity over the years.  However, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about joining the TGIF Challenges team recently.  The talent and commitment of this group is nothing short of amazing.  They always inspire me with their weekly designs and this week is certainly no exception.  You can click on the challenge picture below to see what the other designers created.  As always, we invite you to play along with us. We love to see your creations!

I no longer have a little boy, but I still love the dinosaurs in the No Bones About It stamp set.  I’ll find any excuse to make a card with this set, so this challenge was perfect for me.  I paired the No Bones About It with the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, using the final Mojo Monday sketch.  The color combo just screams “BOY” to me:  Night of Navy, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky, and Tranquil Tide.

No Bones About It

Don’t you just love the playful mixture of patterns in the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper?

For the focal point, I stamped the dinosaur in Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks, then fussy cut him.  The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist, then die cut with the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I added a tiny bit of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon behind the focal point to help it stand out a little more.

Woodgrain Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Did Mother’s Day sneak up on you, like it did on me?  I think Father’s Day is going to do the same thing!  As I was creating my project for tonight’s blog hop, I decided to use the sketch below as my inspiration and feature the Nailed It stamp set.  Nailed It will be retiring at the end of this month and is still (as of this writing) available.  However, many of the other items on my Father’s Day card for tonight have already sold out.  I’ll still share it at the end of this post, but I wanted to create something that would get you excited about the upcoming new catalog!

As you may know from my previous post, I am very fond of the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I love all of the greetings and the 2-stamp flowers are adorable.  Using the sketch, I paired the stamp set with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to give the card a rustic feel.  I really like how it turned out, don’t you?

 

I stamped the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink onto Whisper White card stock, then die-cut it with the Layering Circles Framelits.  Next, I created a frame from Lemon Lime Twist card stock by die-cutting the same circle and an outer circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The flowers were stamped in Powder Pink, Berry Burst, and Crushed Curry inks.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a coordinating set of framelits for these flowers, so I had to fussy cut them.  It may look complicated, but it only took a few minutes.

 

I finished off the card by adding some Glitter Enamel Dots.  This product has been SO VERY POPULAR with demonstrators during the preorder.  I know you’ll want them, but there may be a slight delay for them to be back in stock.  Don’t worry!  I’ll keep you posted.  I definitely want more for myself, too.
