CCC #202

Now it's time for a new cue card at CASology!

This week`s new cue is:


Perfect timing with Father's Day this coming weekend.
I am trying to get lots of use out of my Simon Says Stamp Father's Day Finds stamp set and for today's post I chose to use the saw and the pliers images. I had to get a bit creative with the saw image as it is a one piece stamp. So I stamped it first is London Fog Memento ink, because the original plan was to colour the blade, then I stamped the saw again on another piece of paper in kraft and then fussy cut the handle to paper piece over the grey saw image. Then I stamped the two pliers and the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black. Once the stamping was done I die cut the white panel with an MFT Stamps Wonky Stitched Rectangle and adhered it to a kraft card base.

ETA thank you Jen Wills for correcting me that I identified the pliers as being wrenches!!!
They look the same to me--ha ha ha

You totally nailed this! HAHA! Get it?? So punny right? Ok.. seriously though.. this is awesome! I love the little handle that's raised on the saw it picks up the kraft background... And your design is amazing! I'm understanding the power of 3 better today.

This is a great card, Tracey - I absolutely love how you added the kraft "handle" to the saw. Ties the complete "package" together beautifully!

Love the kraft saw handle and how it pops with the kraft card base. Such an awesome dad card - even if those are pliers and not wrenches. ;)
