Leftover Sunday - Week 4

Hi there! I hope you had a great Father's Day with your family.
Phoenix and I woke up early to go buy some of Ian's favourite things: a Coke Slurpee, mushrooms for an omelette, and a chocolate dessert. Then we hurried home and made a breakfast fit for a king. It was awesome! It ended up being a very lazy day around here and I got a lot of crafting done. It was great. 

Here's the card I made for my dear ol' Dad: 


I used set called "Dad's Tickets" that includes a bunch of sentiments and the SVG cut file. I cut the ticket-shaped card out with my Silhouette with Cosmo's Circa 1934 paper and added a couple cardstock stickers. I did a "print and cut" with the sentiment and sprayed a little Tattered Angels Mist on it to grunge it up a little. 


On the inside I just cut out a simple rectangle for my message to my dad.. It went something like this:

Happy Father's Day Dad! 
I hope you enjoyed your last Father's Day with your kids!
Love Tobi
(My parents are moving 2000 km away in a week.. I'm a little bitter... lol)

Now for the leftovers... This was the stash of leftovers I had to work with: 


That polka-dot paper caught my eye right away and inspired the colour combo for this card: 


Yummy, isn't it?? 
The stamp is from Whimsie Doodles coloured with Copics. I airbrushed the clouds with Copic markers and the airbrush system. The paper... Oh the paper.. It's from My Mind's Eye (Life of the Party) and it's probably my favourite collection right now. The colours are awesome and I am inspired whenever I create with them. 

Copics Used:
Reds: R20, 22, 24, 27, 59
Blue: BG10, 32, 34, 18
Green: G12, 14, 07
Mushroom: E40, 41, 43. 44
Brown: E53, 55, 57

And lastly, to answer a reader's question, this is how I store my Nestabilities: 


I don't have a lot (I have a few more than this, but these are the ones I use most frequently) but this is how I keep them organized. This is a white board that I covered with magnetic paper - all purchased from Staples. It was not inexpensive (about $45 from beginning to end) but it works for me. I am a very visual crafter and I need to see what I have if I'm going to use it. If it's tucked away in a drawer (unless it's something like ink) I WILL NOT use it. This hangs on a wall right above my work space. 

So that's all! Thanks for stopping by.
