AYSI157 Herd It's Your Birthday

Happy Friday, peeps!  I apologize for being a little bit just gets in the way of crafting sometimes!  Between now and Dana's wedding (9-9-17), I might be a little sporadic in my posting!  Anyway, it's time for another fun As You See It challenge, and we've got a sketch this time:

No automatic alt text available.

My nephew's birthday is tomorrow...he's a chef, but I really didn't have any "chef-y" stamps, but I did think he would like a punny card--at least I hope he does!  So here we go with a PTI stamp that I have had forever and have not barely gotten inky, called Text Style On the Farm:

I used two pieces of Wood Textures DSP; on the main mat, I stamped some wheat images from an Artistic Outpost set called Home in Chocolate Chip ink; then I stamped the checked image from the PTI set in Wild Wasabi.  The sunrise was So Saffron, field was Pear Pizzaz and the cow was stamped in Memento Black, as was the sentiment.  I did add a couple of images in Sahara Sand too:

I didn't feel right adding a bow, so I added a little "sheaf" from Bouquet Bunch at the bottom.  And here's the inside:

The frame is from the same set, sentiments are from PTI's Barnyard Sentiments!  I really need to use this (and all the hundreds of other stamp sets I have!) more often!  I hope you will share you creation with us using our sketch...remember, our challenge goes for two weeks, so you have plenty of time!

Grampy taught Cassidy how to start a fire using a little magnifying glass from the Spy Kit she got for Christmas....the font of knowledge Grampy posesses is endlessly surprising!!!  It worked, too!

Thanks for popping by today and be blessed!

Very cute card. Used to really love Papertrey stuff, but issues with customer service and shipping costs have made me shy away from purchasing from them. Artistic Outpost is really outstanding though!

Our sons sometimes wish Grandpa was NOT such a font of knowledge! Sometimes the lessons are not quite what they wish they would learn (and I sometimes totally agree as he taught our boys the same kinds of things!)

Oh my gosh I love this set, the sentiments are hysterical! I know someone this card would be perfect for, lol!

GREAT MASCULINE card! Don'tell Cassidy, but I lit my cigarettes that way! LOL. (Quit smoking 40 years ago.)

Now that's a fun card! I can hardly believe how realistic that woodgrain DSP looks. And I thought the same thing as Michele - Grampy better watch that finger!

Lisa Elton said...

What a fun card for your nephew!! I like the stamping you added to the woodgrain paper.He's going to love it! Yep, grampy's are a wealth of knowledge!

I certainly love a punny card, especially this one as it brings back my childhood, growing up on a dairy farm. Love the whole rustic/country feel you've created. The sunray behind the cow is super.

How cute....I am liking all that paper.....

Jenny Engelke said...

This is truly one of the neatest cards I've have seen on quite some time. I just love the eclectic look of it! Everything works perfectly together and the sentiment on the inside is just the best!

Oh my how did I miss this? I love the background paper with the stamping on it!
