Exciting news, Part 2

I didn't have time to make these cards before I shared my exciting news from the previous post, so I decided to call this part 2. I was just too excited.

All the papers used on my cards below are from my new digital paper packs from GinaK Designs. There are 4 patterned papers in a set in two color schemes. I actually had my dad and father-in-law as the inspirations for these papers. First, my dad is just a laid back kind of guy, who likes to hunt. I love this color combo of burnt orange, brown and baja breeze. He loves grandfather clocks, which is why I drew my Special Fathers stamp set in the first place. You can see the previews of my stamps in Gina's blog. Here are the papers.

I designed the second paper pack with my father-in-law in mind. He's a true Georgia fan and it wouldn't be good to give him a card with anything orange in it :-) (Georgia's main rivals are Tennessee and Florida, both have orange in their school colors). So, this paper pack with its red and black colors is for Papa Brackett and all the Georgia fans out there. :-)

These are cards made especially for father's day coming up. The first one is for my dear old dad and the second for my sweet father-in-law. I printed a quarter page of each paper. I cut 4" x 1.25" strips. and lined them up on my card base. No stamping was done here. I used my Cuttlebug, Olivia alphabet to die cut the letters.

This one uses 4 eyelets, which I haven't used in awhile. Thanks to the Fun-Frilled challenge blog, I have been inspired to use them again. They're just the perfect embellishments for this card.

Make sure you visit Gina's blog to get a chance to win my new stamp set. And tomorrow, the preview for the new StampTV kit begins. I can't wait.
