This month’s challenge falls into Father’s Day. While you do not need to create a Father’s Day card, it must for suitable for a male. I created an adorable little workbench fold out card that will fit easily into an A2 envelope. I got my inspiration from 2 talented ladies on YouTube (links are at the bottom of my blog). I started with cutting out the pattern in black cardstock. I have numerous suitable dies cuts of tools, papers, stamps, embossing folders, etc. Next, I die the pegboard for the back wall of the bench, embossed Aluminium tape for the side walls, cut to fit SSS pre-embossed woodgrain craft paper for the front of the counter, then added the various tools and signs.

This month the Simply Create Too Design Team Challenge is to make a Card using Diecuts. I love die cuts. I have invested a little fortune in dies and don’t use them nearly enough. I have made two different cards using dies and papers from my stash. The only ink I used was on the sentiments.
Card 1 – I just received a shipment of dies, stamps, and embossing folders from Darlene at Dutch Paper Crafts so I had to make a couple of cards for this month’s challenge. I used papers from my paper hard, my Tim Holtz Vagabond Die Machine. The sentiment is from SSS. The adorable Zebra is by Marianne Designs - COL1447 Zebra/Donkey Die Set. The Embossing folder/die is from DF3444 Anja’s Flower Border Embossing Folder with matching Dies (I used the die upside down on the embossed background and cut it down to fit an A2 card).
Card 2 – This card uses die from Memory Box – UNDERWATER COLLAGE Craft Die 99742 and SEAWEED COLLAGE Craft Die 99727, plus Marianne Designs – Elines Tropical fish seahorse col1431. The sentiment is by SSS. Note: I popped everything up using dimensional foam tape to create a 3-D effect.
Our challenge runs through the month of April (4/6 to 4/27). I look forward to seeing your creations.
For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we would like to see a Quick and Easy Card. While my card may look like it would take a while to make it was simply a matter of cutting 3 frames, inking the background, stamping the sentiment and pasting it together. The whole card took me less than 15 minutes. I used Memory Box Die – Debutante Frame and Lamp Post Frame, Tim Holtz’s Oxide Distress Inks, JustRite Re-enforcement die, ribbon, gems, and paper from my stash. The sentiment is from Avery Elle.
