Welcome friends, followers and TSG MOABH-hoppers! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all Mothers everywhere - even if all your children have paws like mine! ;) Bet you didn't know that TSG's MOABH was the main impetus causing me to create my own blog did you? So, I am very exciting to be participating again this year. I was assigned two sets this year; therefore, I have two cards for your viewing pleasure in this post, the first of which is HSH - Hanukkah Additions - I was SO excited when Jessica created a Hanukkah set (there are not a plethora of them out there) and it coordinated with Home Sweet Home as well - bonus! I used the Stamp School's Geometry Class Sketch from 5-9-12 to create this card:
(Holiday card count... 7? Man! That is just dismal! It should be six times that by this time of year... I better get cracking!) I was really dissatisfied with all of my white inks, I always used to have to emboss to get that crisp white look on colored cardstock, and someone suggested I try Colorbox's Frost White. So I picked one up from A.C. Moore with a coupon and tried it here - I think it looks pretty good! Note - this is not a fast drying ink, I heat set it so it would not smudge. What do you think? In addition to MOABH & the Stamp School sketch challenge, this card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- The Craft Room Challenge - Emboss It (I used the Swiss Dots CB folder for the background), and
- One Stop Craft Challenge - Monochrome.
Aren't these puppies sweet?!! This card may end up being a birthday card or a Father's Day card from Ty to his Pop, so I left the sentiment on the front of the card 'Woof!' offset by tiny bone resins and figured on the inside I could right either "that means Happy Birthday in dog" or "that means Happy Father's Day in dog" depending on which occasion I went with. The Green Galore background is embossed with the Houndstooth (fitting for a canine card, no? 'hounds-tooth' get it? Hee hee hee!) CB EF, the colorful paw print paper is from a DCWV dog scrapbook stack and I created a strip of DP using the 4 different paw print designs included in the set as well and put some pretty bone ribbon over it. Then I added a strip of these adorable paw print satin cut outs by May Arts to complete the sketch. I can never make enough dog cards...
This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- Craft Your Days Away Challenge 45 - All Creatures Great and Small,
- Allsorts Challenge - Week 154 - Card for a Man or Boy,
- Pixie Dust Studio Challenge 126 - For the Boys,
- Totally Papercrafts Challenge 116 - No Pesky Girls Allowed, and
- The Craft Room Challenge - Emboss It.
