Pretty Cute Stamps April Blog Hop Day!

Hi!  Did you find your way here from the Pretty Cute Stamps blog?  If so, you are in the right place!  If you just happened upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, just click on the link above.
We are all showcasing projects that we have made using the brand new April release stamps from
Pretty Cute Stamps.  All of the stamps in this release will be on sale through April 21, 2015, and if you buy the Stamp Bundle, you will save even more!
Here is a look at the April Release....


The card that I have for you today is made using the Such A Tool set shown above.
This is a great set to make a card for Father's Day or maybe a birthday card for the man in your life :)


I started with a black card base and then layered on yellow card stock and a wood embossed layer.
I stamped the greeting with brown Memento ink on cream card stock and snipped the ends with decorative scissors.  I punched holes and attached twine to hang it on the "tree".  The hammer and nails were stamped onto gray card stock with black Memento ink and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I put a little Wink of Stella on the metal part of the hammer and the nails for a little more "metallic" look.  I fussy cut them out and glued to the card.
On the inside...


...I stamped the sentiment and the tape measure with Memento black ink and colored the tape measure
with Spectrum Noir Markers and then used some washi tape as an accent.
