Stamptacular Challenge 11

Hi ladies, this week on Stamptacular Challenge 11 we have a theme of "Fabulous Father's". As usual the DT have surpassed themselves and made some amazing creations, so go check out the blog and join in with the challenge if you can.

Instead of a fathers day card I have made a birthday card for my boyfriend's dad as his birthday is coming up in a few weeks.

He is quite musical and he plays the guitar, among other things, so this edwin image that I got from a blog bud was perfect for his card. As usual, it is coloured with distress inks and I also distressed the edge with weathered wood ink to really make the image stand out.

For the paper I went in search of some free sheet music to download and I thought it made a perfect background for the card. The embossed panel was done using the allegro folder, again keeping the musical theme.

I finished off the card with some black ribbon, a music note charm and some jewels.

For the inside I followed the same sketch (roughly!) and I used the same downloaded sheet music as my DP.

Finally, an image of the card from another angle!!!

Card/Paper: Black and white card, free download
Stamp: Magnolia - Edwin with guitar
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, tattered rose, weathered wood, fired brick, faded jeans, walnut stain, antique linen and black soot
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, charm, jewels.
Tools: Cuttlebug, circle and scalloped circle nesties, allegro embossing folder, water brush, sponge.

Thanks for looking x


  1. GORGEOUS!!!! I love this card. Beautiful!

  2. Hi Liza, what a awesome card... would you possibly have a link to the sheet music download that you used.


  3. Hi Liza - my thoughts exactly. Your card is brilliant and I too would love to know where you found these nodes - as they look much better than the ones I normally find.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, they are all really appreciated.
