RemARKably Creative Blog Tour: Father's Day Tool Box Card

I'm so excited to participate in today's RemARKably Creative Blog Tour! Today we are sharing projects made with the Urban Underground Suite.

I recently saw the instructions for this card made by Sandi MacIver on  I HAD to CASE it and make one of these for my hubby for Father's Day!  We always have a remodeling project going here on the farm so I know he'll love it.

I had a great time playing with the little tools in this Suite!  I have a LOT of little tools in a variety of color combinations all over my work table!  All the supplies used can be found at the bottom of the post.

This is very similar to a "card in a box", except the box
 is put within a Z-fold card.

I love that it looks fantastic open or closed.  Because it folds to a standard size,
you can easily mail it.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed today's card.
You can find the list of products used at the bottom of the page.

As you continue through the rest of the Blog Tour I hope you are inspired
by all the great projects.  You can click on a name to take you to the other participants in today's RemARKable Creative Blog Tour

Happy Easter!

Blessed Easter Tulips

These tulips are fun and easy to color using ink and blender pens.  I used Elegant Eggplant & Garden Green with the retired Blessed Easter stamp set.

Oops! Dapper Denim is Here For One More Year!

Dapper Denim is NOT one of the In Colors retiring at the end of May.  We will have it for one more year! I mixed up the group of colors that will be retiring.  I'm so glad we will have it in the upcoming Annual Catalog!

The 5 In Colors that ARE retiring are:
Cucumber Crush
Delightful Dijon
Mint Macaron
Tip Top Taupe
Watermelon Wonder

Cards using Dapper Denim - My Favorite Retiring "In Color"

Dapper Denim is the one retiring 2015-17 In Color that I am going to miss.  I made sure I purchased a full pack of card stock and an ink refill to have on hand.  Below are two cards I've made using Dapper Denim as the focus.

Glitter Covered Dragonfly

I love the Dragonfly on this card.  I first stamped it using the Dapper Denim stamp pad. To make it shimmer & shine,  I tapped it with versamark all over and poured Heat & Stick powder over the entire dragonfly. Then I heated it briefly until it started to shine. Finally I sprinkled the dragonfly with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter. Very simple and it is beautiful!

Dapper Denim with Flourish

The Flourishing Phrases stamp set was used to make an all over background. I used Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim card stock.  The Flourish was then cut out of Vellum Card stock using the Flourish Thinlits.  I am so glad this stamp set & thinlits are being carried over into the next annual catalog!

For the inside of the card I stamped flourishes and left an area blank
for a stamped sentiment or handwritten note.
