Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

fathersdaybloghop
Good morning!!  Welcome to my April Papertrey Ink blog post!  This month we’re celebrating the Boys and Men in our lives.   If you’ve been following the latest Papertrey Ink Release, you will remember Nichole’s amazing Mother’s Day card using an old picture.  I just had to replicate it for Father’s Day.  Yep, that’s yours truly at about age 2!  I even have bells on my shoes! LOL  This photo was actually a colour photo but I photo edited it with a “sepia” look.  I had to change up the elements from Nichole’s card so they would be a bit more masculine…the cork star, and dotted background and the leaf and berry circle image.  Notice the date?  I don’t have the addition set of dates for the Library Ledger Series (and I don’t think the new one goes back to this date! LOL) so I thought I’d just add this year’s date…now here’s how I got “2011…”  I carefully cut up the year 2001.  I cut off the “01” at the end and stamped the “1” twice at the end! EEK!! I had to!!  I love using old photos…here’s my Father’s Day card from last year…

The next card is inspired by the latest Wild Card Colour Challenge.  They were “masculine” colours so I thought they’d be perfect for another Father’s Day card…the dotted label frame and bit of ribbon under the star are actually Forest Foliage/Pinefeather respectively…just difficult to photograph as they are a deep deep green.  The star is made out of chipboard using 2 of the PTI star dies and then inked with SU chocolate chip ink.

Love the picture of you and your dad :) Great touch with the cork star and fun BG on the kraft panel. Love both pictures and fun use of the burlap on the card. Glad you got some sunshine this weekend :) Enjoy your last day of the long weekend. We have 15 for dinner tonite so it's a busy day.

All of these are amazing cards. My favorite is the middle one. I love that picture and the colors.

Janelle said...

Love all your manly cards, Maureen, but especially the first two with the photos. The way you trimmed your photos leaving some white edging is brilliant... and I really like the the one "fancy" edge on the first card. Great job, as usual!!

Andrea M said...

OMG Maureen - you do masculine so well too!!! Is there anything you can't do? WOWZAS! Love the first card with the pic of you and your Dad!! Makes me miss my Dad :( Love all these fantastic creations!
