Get Your Kicks On Route 66

Welcome to the Studio!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm today's designer for the Card A Day Blog and I have a travel-themed card to share today.  I decided to do a twist on a luggage tag.  Sooner or later, we all end up with a luggage tag on our suitcase, whether it's the Tyvek printed airline tags or showing support for your favorite SEC team - my hubby has an Alabama Roll Tide luggage tag. 

Here's my creation:

You remove the tag to read the message...

The "inside" of my card...

For my card, I used a very retired paper pack from CTMH called Route 66.  It's from ages ago, but I loved the papers and still had some hanging around even after a two-page layout.  I used a Technique Tuesday stamp set for the sentiment tag.  For the message, I found an online verses for cards type website.  It's a simple and fun card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Until next time, Scrap Sassy!

Anchor's Away!

Welcome to the Studio!

If you're visiting from the Card A Day Blog, thanks so much for stopping by.  If you have been to CADB yet today, be sure to head over there for some daily inspiration and join our July Challenge.
Our theme is Guy Cards.  And I have to admit that those give me fits sometimes.  I almost always have trouble with them.  Feminine cards are easy...if it looks too plain, add flowers and bling.  Not so much with guy cards.  I could just imagine the look on my husband's face if his birthday card was bejeweled and flower-rific.

I'm still into my watercoloring and these stamps from Justrite are awesome for that.  I really enjoy coloring.  It's relaxing and like being a little kid in school again;)  I used some jute ribbon for a manly touch as well.

My Supply List:
Cardstock:  Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake & Soft Suede, Stampin Up
Pattern Paper:  Well Worn, Stampin Up
Stamps:  Justrite
Dies:  Justrite/Spellbinders
Fibers:  Jute ribbon, Michaels
Inks:  Cajun Craze, Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake & Soft Suede, Stampin Up
Other:  Watercolor paper and pencils

And here is a quick bonus project.  This card was made basically the same way as the one above, but it's for a card guy...

The supplies were the same for this card.  Well Worn is one of my favorite "guy" paper packs.  I'm crushed that it's been retired!

Thanks for visiting!  Until next time, Scrap Sassy!
