Create with Connie and Mary Father’s Day Challenge

Create with Connie and Mary's Thursday Challenge is a Father's Day card challenge!  Or masculine card challenge if you'd prefer!  We've always had challenges for our subscribers, but now every Thursday we will offer a sketch, color or inspiration challenge for EVERYONE to try.  Just check to see what the challenge is for the week, then submit your entry via INLINKZ over on the Create with Connie and Mary blog.  Please state in your post that it is a Create with Connie and Mary Challenge and the corresponding challenge number (CCMC103 is today!)  Come play with us!


Recently my Punch Classes made a card using the Punch Art wrench and they loved it.  Here is another idea using the Punch Art Wrench!  I combined with with the Happy Father's Day greeting from All Holidays.  I started with a base of Kraft cardstock and layered on Soft Suede.  I used a piece of stripe paper from Travel Journal Designer Paper and layered that on top.  I stamped Happy Father's Day once in Soft Suede and once in Pumpkin Pie on Very Vanilla, then cut out the Pumpkin Pie center and layered it over the Soft Suede.  I layered the Very Vanilla on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and placed on front.


For the punch art wrench, I used the Boho Blossoms punch and the 1" circle punch for the bottom, the 1 3/8 Circle punch and Word Window punch for the top.  The middle is just a rectangle piece of cardstock.  I sponged along all the edges with Soft Suede ink.  Finally, I added two Circle Designer Brads (retiring!) in the upper right corner.  I thought they looked a little like bolts!  Clever, huh? 


Make sure to check out Create with Connie and Mary to see Mary's delightful card this week!  


Create with Connie and Mary is looking for three Design Team Members to play along with our Thursday Creative Challenges each week!  You'll need to use Stampin' Up! only products, have a blog where you can post your Thursday Challenge card, and love to use sketch, color or inspiration challenges as a starting point in your creations!  See more details over on Create with Connie and Mary!  We'd love for you to join us each week!
