Reverse Confetti stamps and CardMaker Magazine blog hop

I sure hope you hopping along and taking in the fun creations that both the Reverse Confetti stamps team and the CardMaker Magazine blog team have created for this joint hop.  You have probably come here to my blog from Lisa's Blog.  
 I picked the Tie-rific stamp set along with the matching die set to create with and I'm going to share two cards created with that set.  I was excited to get a masculine set of stamps since I always find that theme to be a challenge.  I also got the Topped Off Tag die set.  The background for my card was created with Distress Stain.  I used the blue and the orange ink to help set the color combination I wanted to use.  
 Here is a close up of the tie and the word "dad" that I used.  The tie is stamped first and then cut with the matching die and the word "dad" is cut twice from cardstock.  
 I wanted to use a completely different color combination for my second card.  That helps show that the stamps and dies can be versatile.  The background was created with a Clearsnap stencil and a chalk stamp pad from Clearsnap.  
The word "dad" is cut out of the black pocket and then cut again from the kraft colored cardstock and then the word is inlaid in the cut out words.  I created a simple handkerchief to insert in the pocket.
From here, hop on over to Leigh's blog to continue the fun.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
