Paper Strips - Cards for Teacher/Hero/Father's Day

   If you have followed me for a long while, then you know I really enjoy creating a card from scraps.

  I decided to take my scraps of three patterns of Authentique papers and create as many cards as I could.  My sentiment is from "Freedom Rocks" stamp set and I used my i-rock tool and glam rocks on my scrap ribbon.  I like this sentiment for teacher cards, Father's day cards, and OWH cards.

  My go-to sketches are usually:

  • top-bottom-something across the middle
  • 1 1/4" squares for a quilt card
  • paper strips on the diagonal

but then I went vertical with shorter strips (and I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities dies):
 and embossed longer strips (inspired by Nancy Riley):
Supplies (links to sale items at Shop Pumpkin Spice store embedded):
paper:  Authentique "Journey"; SU early espresso
Imaginisce:  i-rock tool and glam rocks
stamp sentiment: My Pink Stamper "Freedom Rocks"; SU "Well Scripted"
dies:  Spellbinders Nestabilities
embossing folder:  SU Square Lattice

Happy Thursday!
