ATSM #245 A Friend is.....Card in Black and White and Another DAD`s Card

Hallo my Blogland friend, we meet again at Wednesday and it means a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM) this week we have theme: Photo Inspiration

I used my Gift I have got from my lovely friend Dawn in New Zealand. This big sentiment is a great stamp if you like to make a card without any Images.

I used my very favorite Elen Hutson stamp I have got for my birthday 3 years ago from my Bro in Law. This stamp is so nice to make any Design Paper...don`t you think so?

I also stamped stamp star on the black panel and added some pearl on it. My Splatter still not so good I think because I always afraid to make my card damaged if I give too big splatter :)

I hope you get inspired and like to join us this week at ATSM challenge. Klick HERE to join.

Because its many DAD/Manly/Boys Challenge out there I also made this card and like to share here:

For my card I used these tools:

I first stamped the brown panel with the Woodgrain Background rubber stamp with the ink number 1.

I then Embossed the white paper and then I sponged with the ink number 2. Then I stamped the sentiment on the black paper and gave the white embossing powder and heated it.
