ColourQ Challenge

I decided to give challenges a try again. I needed some motivation to play in my craft room. Today's card is for ColourQ challenge

I didn't have all the colours so I made appropriate substitutes. 
My colours:
       Basic Black
       Summer Starfruit
       Coastal Cabana (replaced Cool Caribbean)
        Thin cardboard (replaced Kraft)

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Dirtday

This is my favorite card.  I love the color combination and the distressed coloring.  It's a perfect card for a boy or man.  I used the I Dig You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

ATV Birthday

For this card I used the Triple Stamping technique (can be seen in the previous post) again.  This time I created a background with Tim Holtz stains.  I then stamped and embossed the atv stamp from Stampin' Up's Need for Speed stamp set.  Add some ribbon and it's complete.

Speed Boat Birthday

For this card I used a technique called Triple Stamping.  The tutorial is on Splitcoaststampers.  Its a really easy and neat technique.  I decided to use the speed boat from Stampin' Up's Need for Speed stamp set.  I added some ribbon and a banner to complete the card.

Father's Day Tool Shed

This here is the final Father's Day card I've made.  For this card I decided to try the Tim Holtz distress stains  on Stampin' Up glossy cardstock.  It definitely has a different look.  The messy look works perfectly with the Tool Shed stamp set.  I don't know any man who has a clean and crisp tool shed.
I really love the simplicity of this card.  


I sure hope all the father's in my life enjoy their cards.
Happy Father's Day to all the fathers and grandfathers out there.  May your day be full of love and laughter and some good fishing.
