I had a chance to play along with the Dynamic Duos challenge for this week - and I was excited to make a card for this one for two reasons. Reason #1: last week's challenge got me! I tried, then tried again, and the results - epic fail! I think it would have been better called the Dynamic Duel! The troublesome, rejected little panel is still on my desk, staring me in the face, taunting me!! So this week, I was bound and determined to stare down the duo and come up with something...anything!!! And Reason #2: I just received the most glorious happy mail and couldn't wait to break into all of my new stamps and goodies. I ordered an embarrassing amount of stamps, and should really be ashamed, but I'm not! I am so excited to have so much more to play with!!!
So with a whole new set of Dynamic Duo colours and a whole lot of new stamps, I went to work.
Here are the Dynamic Duo colours:
And my card:
It's a Father's Day card for my brother-in-law, who is Dad to my two sweet nieces and my nephew. I used two of my new Lawn Fawn stamp sets (these are the first LF stamps I've ordered, and I'm already in love!) - Happy Everything and Quinn's ABCs. Typically, I have stuck to mostly using The Alley Way Stamps and Paper Smooches sets. And these are still HUGE favourites, but I wanted to branch out a little more. I was very much inspired to buy the LF sets by Elise over at Whimsipost. Her cards are simply adorable and oh so sweet (so is she!). I also used my new Paper Smooches set Clip Board (love that set) as well as some other various PS sets for the sentiments.
Hopefully I'll have a chance later on today to play a little more with my new stash!
Until then, enjoy the card and thank you SO much for stopping by!
