Don't forget that the random prize patrol is watching so leave a comment on every blog to be eligible for the prizes!! The more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning something fun!

For my projects today I decided to go really clean and simple.
For my first card I wanted to show that this new Father's Day Mini set can be used for more than Father's Day cards.
 I stamped the striped tie onto some plaid lavender paper, fussy cut it and added to a little baby shirt that I cut. I added two little brads for snaps, and added a sentiment from Bold Sentiments I.

Next, I made an actual Father's Day card. I stamped all three ties onto the same plaid paper, cut them and adhered to my white card base. 
  I double-stamped the sentiment by first stamping in a lavender ink and then (after cleaning the stamp first!) restamped it in black slightly moving my placement so the lavender looks like a shadow.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win some prizes!

That was so clever to use the tie for the baby card. Totally adorable!! For some reason, I never see lavendar baby cards--I love how yours looks! The tie card is fab--the shadowing in purple is such a cool effect.

The tie on the onesie card is adorable! Great idea! And I love the ties used on an actual father's day card too - those ties are fabulous! Love the shadow idea with the lavender and black ink - it looks awesome!
