 I made this  card and it was claimed by one of my grandaughters to give to their Dad for Fathers Day.

I used a Stencil Girl circle stencil and oxide inks for the background,stamps from AALL&Create and an unpackaged stamp on the borders.I also added some black thread and a can ring pull.

Love everything about this one Carol, right up my street and what a great idea with the can ring, I usually scan the greenhouse for bits and bobs but will be grabbing a few pull rings now.

Thanks so much for joining our Anything Goes with an option theme at Allsorts and also our July challenge at Stamping Sensations.

What a thoroughly modern piece of art Carol, an amazing card. It should be in a frame. I love it.
As for your craft room, you can't possibly be crafting with just those supplies? I have masses more and I'm not as prolific as you. Well done you on the clean out. I look and think it's too big a job! I have no where to put the things to tidy up! My excuse! ;D

Love your card, Carol! It is not surprising that it was snatched up so quickly.

This is one absolutely cool, amazing card Carol!! Wow you really did destash. I hope you don't end up like me wondering where a certain thing is only to realise it's gone!!

What a fun modern design for a music lover! That pop tab makes a great addition too! I can only WISH my crafting area was as tidy as yours! Nice job on that as well as the father's day card!

Rainey's Craft Room said...

A lovely selection of stamps and details to create this fabulous, modern male card.
Your de-stashing skills are amazing...would you fancy a challenge and come and do mine? :o)

craftytrog said...

A fabulous card Carol!
I really need to de-stash and de-clutter my art room!

HilaryJane said...

What a great messy card, love the colours and all the little details. My husbands passion are his many guitars so I really ought to invest in some more guitar stamps or even one! Great job on the de stashing too, bet it feels good, until you start looking for something you no longer have! Just kidding xx

I love the absolute chaos of this card Carol, it just doesn't follow any of the rules, it's superb. Your craft room looks fab too and just look at all of that free space.. I can't move in mine! x

Fabulous card Carol, so creative and so much detail. Thanks for joining us at the Pearly Sparkles challenge this month Claire DT said...

Brilliant card and a fabulous design. I'm not surprised that your granddaughter claimed this one for Fathers Day.
Wow, that's a wonderfully organised crafty space you have there. Take care, Michelle x

Leslie Miller said...

Your granddaughter has a good eye for guy cards! I cannot believe you destashed to the point of one desk worth of stamping supplies. Never in a million years will I get that far. Great job!

Tracy said...

Fantastic design, love the use of the ring pull. Emma

Cath Wilson said...

Wow! I can't believe you got rid of so much...I made a start but haven't even created a small hole in much I no longer want or need but so difficult to find someone to give or sell it to!
Another great card idea. I have that stamp, too - so modern!
Good luck with the other rooms...I've been doing my spare room at the same time as the craft room - very slowly!
