April Diva Dare 2012 ~ Day 4

Greetings everyone!!  It's my turn to double dog dare you with my take on this month's Diva Dare...

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - All Aboard!   It has been Grand Central Station around here lately, Julee gave birth to two beautiful baby boys and has had her hands full!  So I am challenging you to use chipboard, corrugated cardboard, or kraft on your creation or project!  We can't wait to see how you answer the dare!  Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!
I was thinking of my favourite new parents, Julee and Mark, while creating my cards :) 
Seems like I'm not the only one "addicted" to the new Ribbon Banner Die :)  I want to use it on all my projects...and today I have!  I die cut the banner out of a chipboard coaster and stamped the coordinating frame from Super Dad with Old Olive ink.  Then I stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx ink.  The sweet little Father's Day sentiment is from the new Purely Sentimental set. But before we celebrate Father's Day, we will have  Mother's Day so here's another banner card (see, told you I was addicted!)...
I cut out some more Ribbon Banners with chipboard coasters but covered them with patterned paper this time.  I also die cut some smaller banners to hang on top of the larger ones.  I created the kraft flower with the medium bloom image from Joyful Blooms by stamping it twice, cutting out both images and popping up the middle with a foam dot.  The sentiment from the same Joyful Blooms set fits perfectly onto the Charming Oval Die set :) Love that!

  3. These are wonderful! I especially love that Father's Day card! I feel like most of my cards come out more girly, but I love the paper and the file folder and the banner on that one. Totally masculine. Thanks!
