Simon Says.......Masculine or Father's Day!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's June, and that's our month to honor our Dads and the important men in our lives, so our challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp blog is "Masculine or Father's Day!

SSS June 5 Masculine Father's Day

I decided to use this Tim Holtz Birthday Blueprint stamp, and after that decision was made, everything just fell together......thinking of my husband the former engineer, I chose papers that he would like to piece this gift  (the burgundy dot for the gift looks like a tie he'd wear), and putting the whole design on graph paper went along with the blueprint theme.  Both of those papers are from Studio Calico and the others are My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey.  I also used some Core-dinations solids in burgundy and dark teal to carry the colors out to the edges of the card.  My letters are Die-Namics By the Letters dies, and my little "with love" sentiment is from Hero Arts Friend, You're the Best.

Generous Heidi has given us another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of our challenge.

to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store!
