Since I'm heading to Scottsdale, AZ on Wednesday I guess I can start showing you my trades. Our team has decided to do ATCs with a summer theme and I've been using new product that will be available in the catalog coming out.
It is a rather simple little ATC but I like how it came together. The pattern paper and stamps used are all new. I got them at the Yummy & Delicious Tour in Phoenix, AZ in March. The pattern paper is called "Yummy Prints". It's double-sided 12" x 12" card stock. Fabulous colors! If you look back you'll see I've been using it quite a bit. The stamps are from the set "Hello Scoop". I colored with Copics then added Journey Glaze to the ice cream only. The blue card stock is "Beach Ball". I used our Journey Oval dies and added some "Beach Ball" ink to the edges. I'm starting to pack now and FSJ was so cool to send us a check list to help out. I've added notes to mine for additional items.
I also got a card made for Father's Day. I followed a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches but did not get this in their link up.
The sailfish is from a just retired set called "Nautical View". It was a GREAT masculine set and has a fabulous lighthouse. I will keep this set in my stash. The black/white pattern paper has also retired. Bummer.
Since I kinda smudged a bit of black ink on the stamped piece I just added more! Works for me! The sentiment is from a set called "Greet & Shout" and is part of one of the started packs.
I also used a die set called "Pennants". I cut it twice, once with the Black Licorice card stock and once with the pattern paper. The card is simple but I think whoever gets it for Father's Day will like it.
Now if I can just figure out what Google did with my photo album. It's NOT like it was last week!
