Case #45 Share the ride

What a week I'm having here, first it's been a week of sneak peaks and now it's CASE study time.  This week I tried the technique of soaking up ink with a dauber and swiping it across some Gina K shiny card stock to make the sunset.  If you've been following along you will know that  Jill Foster is a technique girl and the cards the DT have created are amazing check them out for yourself here.
Julie is giving away a $25 gift certificate to her new store, Paper and Such.
 The stamp I used to make this card is from Bombshell Stamps, they have some really great images hot rods muscle cars and pinups.

World's Best DAD

Today is an extra special day, not only is it Father's Day but it's also my husband's birthday.  He's a diesel technician so he works with his tools everyday that's why his card had to have a tool on it. I free handed the wrench shape and scrap paper the cut it out to use as a pattern.  Cut it out of grey cardstock and sponged the edges with black ink.
I made a second card for all those Dad's out there that tie one on Mon-Fri.
The sentiment is called World's Best-Verve Stamps
I made patterns for both cards so if you want'em download them here.

Whoooo's Graduating

June is upon us and so is graduation.  Grad cards are something I don't think I've ever made but it was easy with the new digi's from Whimsie Doodles.  I started with a black base and tried to keep it simple.  Well the second card isn't all that simple but for me it's pretty basic.
Stop by Whimsie Doodles to see what's new!  Whoooo knows what you'll find.
