Happy Father's Day Brights

Another Father's Day card! I think this is the one I'll give to my hubby. The tropical leaves will undoubtedly remind him that we need to make plans for another all-inclusive or cruise to some place tropical! (I sure hope so anyway!)

The stamp set I used is from Fun Stampers Journey called "Hang in There" and the inks I used are the same ones I used on my last card which is posted just below this one. Same twine too. The background paper is FSJ "Whip Cream" which is a lovely just-slightly off-white.

FSJ Summer Colors Card

This evening I'm posting a card I've been working on for a couple days now. I borrowed the stamps and dies from my friend Sherry, who ordered them at a card-making class I had a few months ago. I am a Coach with Fun Stampers Journey, a new and uber-creative craft company headquartered in Phoenix, AZ. This is one of my favorite sets of stamps with matching dies, both called "Flower Party".

The colors and layout of this card were inspired by the challenges at Creative Blooms...a challenge blog for FSJ products. It is the June challenge and goes until the end of the month.

Here's what I used to make this one:
Stamps- FSJ "Flower Party"
FSJ "Greet & Shout" (Smile!)
Dies- FSJ "Flower Party"
FSJ "Journey Circles" (corners)
Twine- "Journey Twine- Black"
Inks- FSJ "Blue Lagoon", FSJ "Sweet Berry", FSJ "Black Licorice",
Stampabilities "Lime Green", Stampin' Up "Sun"
Cardstock, foam squares and rhinestones are from my stash.

Challenges: - June Color and Sketch cahllenges - #206 Out on a Limb (foliage)
