ColourQ Challenge #88

Hello again.

Wow.  I am slow this week to get my card made and blogged.  It has been a busy week, more than usual.  I also had a bunch of ideas floating around in my head, and not sure which one to run with.  I actually made 2 cards this week with the  ColourQ challenge #88 color pallate, which is:

I went with the Father's Day theme this week (thanks Arielle for the masculine colors!)

I really wish the photo was clearer, but I hope you can see enough of the detail to appreciate what it looks like in real life!  For this card, I used a calendar stamp set I have had and never played with before.  I thought it would be fun to play up the 'day' part of 'Happy Dad Day'.  I stamped the calendar and then used another stamp set with numbers and filled in the dates.  It's hard to tell from the photo, but I used a circle stamp on Sunday the 19th and then put the heart on the date square.  I like how it turned out.

For the second card, I wanted to use the cute Dad on the Car Decals Cricut Cartridge.  So here is the card I made with him:

I used the Traffic Jam Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler and I liked the shapes of the squares so much that I hand cut the Happy Father's Day 'squares' so it would match the squares in the embossing.  Then I found the perfect square clips to match, so I folded the corner and added the clip.

I hope it's OK that I have two cards.  If I can only enter one, I'll use the first one.

Thanks for looking and as always, I love, love, love your comments!  Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  1. Very cute cards! I REALLY like the background medallion on the first card--just awesome. You came up with a very clever idea, to use the calendar stamp! Thanks for playing the CQC with us this week!
