Stampin' Up! Nailed It Father's Day Cards

Hey sweet Peaches! I just wanted to share a little with you about my week, or well month. Now I'm not sure if any of you can relate, but I'm a VERY private person. I've always struggled with speaking in front of crowds or most anything where a stranger invades my personal space. This entire month my house has been an absolute disaster (which is legitimately as much a cause for my stress/anxiety as the invasion of personal space), because we are haveing quite a bit of work done on both the inside as well as the outside of our house. While the outside isn't as invasive, I've had numerous companies of people coming and leaving my house throughout this entire month, sometimes even overlapping their visits. It has taken all of my sanity to not lose it. The hardest part is that, being as my entire house is in disarray, I haven't had access to my craft room. It's one of the few things that I enjoy doing, and would most certainly provide a nice distraction from the chaos that is my house right now. As you might imagine, this puts me in a little bit of a panic mode, so I struggled with what I could do to take my mind of all that was going on. Luckily God had an answer for me. As always, He's always a million and one steps ahead of me and knows my heart and my struggles. I think He might have thought, "Lauren, you are in desperate need of a different focus, something that would absolutely, 100% take your mind off what's happening around you, that you have little control over, so here you go." You see, I had just applied for a Kindergarten teaching position a day ago and then promptly received a call for an interview. Well, that'll do it! Now, I can put all my energy and focus into preparing for my interview. This is a pretty big deal as it's the first job I have applied for since recovering from my autoimmune disease that I've had for 7 long years! As my sweet little girl would quote a well known pony character, "Mama, are you "nervous-cited"?" Yes! That's the perfect summation of my feelings. I'm both nervous and excited.

I'll keep you Peaches posted on the outcome, but for now, I'll bring you 2 final Father's Day cards, using a retiring set as today is the very LAST day to get your hands on these products. So if you love them, definitely grab them up!

The stamp set I'm featuring in my cards today is Nailed It They are fairly simple in design. I apologize for the second card as it does feature the coordinating thinlits which are unavailable. As I mentioned earlier, with my craft room being unavailable to me, I had to prepare these projects ahead of time. However if you stamp these images, they are super easy to cut out by hand.

For my first card, I used gorgeous new Hexagon textured dynamic impressions embossing folder. I love this embossing folder as it adds so much textured with very little effort. After I added the embossed layer, I took some Copper foil paper and stamped some tools in Versamark ink. Then I used copper embossing powder And heat set the powder for a really cool, metallic look. I just love the look of the new Tranquil Tide in-color! I have just loved incorporating it into my Father's Day cards. Well, those are my cards for today! If you have any questions or would like to order these products, I've provided links as well as my email, so please feel free to contact me. Have a fantastic day! I know I will, because tomorrow the brand new catalog will be live, so look for more info coming. Until then, see you all next post!
