Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads and Grandads out there, hope you are enjoying your day. This is the card I made for my dad using the A Cut Above stamp set. Hope he likes it as his favourite thing is cutting grass either with his lawnmower or out in the field on his tractor.
For the background paper I’ve used one of the sheets from the Flowering Catus Product Medley, also available in the refil pack. This paper reminds me of grass flying eveywhere when you’re mowing so perfect for this card.
I’ve kept the rest of the card simply colouring with Stampin’ Blends in Mossy Meadow, Evening Evergreen, Smokey Slate, Basic Black, Pool Party, Petal Pink, Poppy Parade, Cinnamon Cider and Night of Navy.
The sentiments were stamped on labels cut from the Potted Succulents Dies and adhered to the card with Foam Adhesive Strips. I hope my dad enjoys the card and hopefully gets a chance to do some mowing even though its cloudy here today in Yorkshire.
Whiskey Business is the perect stamp set to make cards for my husband as he loves his Whiskey and has quite a collection.
The whiskey decanter and glass on this card have both been made shiny by using the Shimmery Crystal Effects, its ages since I used this but I love the little glittery flecks its left which really do look like glass.
After stampin both images with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink I coloured the whiskey parts with a mixture of Light Pumpkin Pie and Light Cinnamon Cider Blends to make the rich whiskey colour. I then spread a thin layer of Shimmery crytal effects over the liquid parts and left to dry. I left mine overnight but an hour should be fine.
The backround designer paper comes from the Bloom Where You’re Planted collection and adds to the masculine feel of the card. I used one of the paint strips from the Beautiful Brushstrokes Dies as a base for my Whiskey to sit on.
As a final touch I added my sentiment to the top and bottom of the card with Early Espresso Ink.
Hope my husband likes this card which my son will be giving him on Sunday.
As its Father’s Day here in the UK on Sunday I thought I share a some ideas for cards over the next few days. This first one, using Handsomely Suited is very quick and simple to make as its just stamp and colour and it can also be any colour combination you want.
I was watching England play there first game while making this card so went for a patriotic colour scheme of Real Red Red, Misty Moonlight and White.
After stamping and colouring the tie images I added a length of Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon across the card layer before adhering to the Real Red cardstock matt and the Misty Moonlight card base.
I stamped the greeting with Tuxedo Black ink onto the smallest label in the Painted Labels Dies, I’m so impressed with how perfectly its fits. I then added this to my card with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A quick and simple Father’s Day card, unfortunately the men in my life are all more outdoors basedbeing farmers so guess I’ve some more cards to whip up before Sunday.
It’s Kangaroo & Co which has seen some ink today to make this thank you card, if you changed the sentiment it could easily be used as a birthday or get well soon card aswell.
I took one of the Ornate Layers dies and cut it out of Basic White. While the card was still in the die I used a Blender Brush and Soft Sea Foam to create the grass, with heavier blending at the bottom and a very light touch at the top. I then added a little bit of grass again using Soft Sea Foam.
I also stamped the butterfly and the greeting on this panel. I used the flower stamp and Versamark to create the subtle background on the Blamy Blue card base.
To finish the card I added a die cut Kangaroo coloured in Crumb Cake and a bunch of flowers in Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam and Daffodil Delight.
I’ve been trying to use up the remenants of my dsp from the current catalogue before my new catalogue pre-order arrives (fingers crossed its today!). Today I’ve pulled out the Playing With Patterns pack and I’ve paired it the Hey Girlfriend stamp set so I can also pull out my Blends.
I’ve used a colour scheme of Night of Navy, Purple Posy, Highland Heather and a touch of Pool Party.
I’ve added some Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones as a finishing touch.
