Created Byhand Challenge - Father's Day

This week's Created Byhand challenge is Father's Day. I made this card a month or so ago using the Drywall Stitching technique from the April/May issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from Oxford Impressions - Family Man. It's so hard to find good masculine stamps! I can't tell you how many times I've reached for this set. It is truly a must-have.

This is another card I did last year using this set. Again, another TJ technique - this time it's the Kaleidoscope Card tech from the April/May '08 issue. I sent this to my dad last year and he really loved it! It is really so much better in real life. It's so hard to show the 3-d quality of the inside - each frame is a separate layer. VERY fun card to make!

  6. Great cards, Shelly. The inside on the second one is a fabulous idea. I love this set -- it's my favorite "guy" set of stamps.

  8. Your set of cards is stunning. I love the idea of making a feature of the INSIDE of a card which doesn't happen very often, if ever. Wonderful work.
