IASC Blog Hop!!!

Hey yall! TGIF! The weekend is here and what better way to start it off than with a blog hop?!!! Yay! IASC, aka 'In A Scrap Creations', is hosting a blog hop! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, visit the IASC blog HERE. This is a 'Fathers Day' themed hop and each DT member will be sharing a special project for dad on their blog.
For my project, I decided to make a card. I do not own too many manly looking embellishments, stamps, papers, etc., so I tried to go in a different direction with this card. I started with a cream colored cardstock base. I then added some red cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix Texture Plate called 'Large Dots.' I also pulled some Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons, die cut cards, and gold chipboard alphabet....again, all from my scrappy stash. I have been trying to use up a lot of my stash that I have had for some time. I am on a mission to use all that I can because I just have way too much stuff and not enough space to put it all in! LOL. Anyways, I also added some brown trim and rhinestones. Here is my card:
I love these die cuts. I inked the edges with some Colorbox Chalk Ink. The chipboard buttons are darlin' as well. I love the vintage feel they have. I tied some twine on the inside of the buttons.
Of course, what is a project without using my favorite Helmar Adhesives! I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the majority of the card. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry for adhering my trim and Helmar Zap Dots to add dimension on my die cuts and chipboard. I adhered the chipboard buttons with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots.

Now, on to the next blog in the hop...Melissa W. You can view her blog and project HERE.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thank you, as always, for taking the time to stop by my blog! Take care of yourselves and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
