Father's Day with Plane & Simple

I love the Plane & Simple set from the mini catalogue. It's so versatile and great for male cards - plus it comes with 3 phrases: Happy Father's Day, Happy Birthday and Thank you, which makes it a really useful set to own! If you've got your eye on it, then make sure you pick it up before the end of September, as we never know which stamp sets from the mini are going to make it into the main Catalogue and Idea Book.

I've not taken part in any challenges for a while, so I thought I'd have a go. I've used the Simply Stampin' sketch challenge from last week along with a colour challenge from the Color Dare blog. The dare this week was to use:

Cajun Craze
Baja Breeze
Not Quite Navy

They are not colours I would normally use together but I think they work quite well. I cut the circle using my Big Shot and the useful Circles #2 die.

I then went on to play with the set a bit more, but this time I paired it with the Newsprint DSP and some of the crumb cake seam binding ribbon. The plane works so well with the map paper from Newsprint.

 And finally, for my last card I tried something a little bit different for me and did a pull tab. I also coloured the plane in using the blender pens and Cajun Craze. The pearls have been coloured in with my promarkers. I hope you like this week's cards.
