PDCC156 & CFC77


The colours for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge were a warm autumn blend of  cinnamon, squash, vanilla and sage.  I find that when my 'real' life is crazy busy my creativity seems to go on stand by.  The past couple of weeks have been busier than usual and trying to fit it all in has proven challenging.  I pulled out my cardstock and inks and started working on a plan.  I felt that the this weeks colours would work for a masculine card so I combined it with CASual Friday's Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails Challenge to create a card that is perfect for a young boy, a young man or a big kid.

Chari Moss created an amazing masculine card using Neat & Tangled's Elves at Work stamp the other day on the Neat & Tangled blog.  She created a great panel using some of the small toy images and then coloured then in with Copic markers.  I used her card as inspiration to create a larger panel stamping the images using different colours of ink.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate
Stamps: Think Big Favorites #12 (PTI) Elves at Work (Neat & Tangled)
Ink:  Dark Chocolate, Ripe Avocado, Canyon Clay
other: foam tape
