Artisan Design Team Wednesday Wow

Thank you for joining me today for this weeks Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! Hopefully you have arrived from Wendy Weixler's blog. If not, keep clicking on the button at the bottom of each blog post and hop to work your way back around.

This week I have a scrapbook page and a matching card to share with you. I've been trying to catch up on my scrapbooking, so I made a pile of all the picture that need to be done. This one from a few Father's Days ago was perfect for what I had in mind for this weeks project. 

The background is spritzed with the Silver Foil Smooch Spritz (I'm very sad this is retiring). Then I put together a chevron background with 3 inch strips, sewing over the middle of each zig zag, giving them a little dimension. The Beyond Plaid and Amazing Family stamp sets were a great addition to this Father's Day page!

Once I finished the scrapbook page, I had an idea for a matching card. I used all the same colors - just converted it into a card. I find it so hard to design "guy" cards, but this one came together really quickly, and I love it!

Thanks for hopping with us this week!
