Happy Father’s Day

  • Stamps – Hero Arts “Hipster Animals” and “Father’s Day Message”
  • Dies –
    • Elizabeth Craft Designs “Beaded Circle Frames”
    • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Patterned paper – KaiserCraft “Mister Fox Collection”
  • Watercolor paper – Strathmore cold press
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Ink pads – Versafine “Onyx Black” and “Satin Red”
  • Zig Clean Color markers

I stamped the bear and his accessories in Versafine ink. He’s quite dapper! I always like dressing up cute animals! That’s why it so appropriately fits the bill for Week 253 Challenge at Casology: Clothes. I added color to the bear and the stamped sentiment with Zig Clean Color markers and added water with a waterbrush to blend and soften the colors. I fussy-cut the bear (I have the dies, but wanted to layer the accessories directly to the same layer). I adhered it to the patterned circle die-cut, layered with the Beaded Circle Frame die-cut, with some dimensional adhesive. I trimmed the sentiment into a flag and layered on black cardstock strip. I placed all elements onto the card base to complete the card. Thanks for visiting.

Friday Mashup – Happy Father’s Day

  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Father’s Day Message”
  • BARC Wood Tape “Cherry” – Arc Crafts
  • Patterned papers – Simple Stories “Say Cheese”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and BoBunny
  • Sequins – Doddlebug Designs, Inc.

Today’s Father’s Day card was created in response to the Friday Mashup Challenge. I was to create a project for Father’s Day stamping on anything but cardstock. So I selected wood tape for my stamping surface. It seemed appropriate for a masculine card. This is the card my son and I gave my husband this morning. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Stamp- PSX
  • Patterned paper – Fancy Pants Designs “Swagger” by Nancie Rowe Janitz – 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Die cut – made from Spellbinders Nestabilities “Resplendent Rectangles” set
  • Baker’s twine – Doodlebug Design Co.
  • Buttons – Vintage set from Buttons Galore
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

Today is Father’s Day and this is my husband’s card. It features some perfect paper for masculine cards! Lots of hats and stripes, for example. The sentiment stamp is one of my oldest. The date on it is 1992, which makes it over 20 years old! It’s a classic! I also used a color scheme that is part of a challenge for the upcoming Online Card Classes Summer Card Camp 2. We were challenged to use 4 out of 5 of the following colors:

With this paper collection, I was able to nail it! I also double stamped the sentiment with Smokey Grey and Onyx Black Versafine ink. Thanks for visiting today.


OWH – Midweek Throwdown – About Time

  • Stamps – Hero Arts “Pocket Watch” and Inkadinkado “Gem Stone Alphabet”
  • Die cuts – made from Spellbinders Nestabilities “Oval Medallion Labels”
  • Patterned papers – Fancy Pants “Country Boutique” 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This was the last of my cards for Dads that I created for Operation Write Home (OWH)  for the Father’s Day deadline. This past week, the OWH Midweek Throwdown was an All About Time challenge. Pocket watches and Dads kind of go together, so I thought this would be a natural combination. I’ve had all of these stamps in my stash for quite some time, so it was fun to put them altogether. Thanks for visiting.

  • Sticker – K & Company “Handmade Sticker Pad”
  • Patterned papers – from My Mind’s Eye “Lost  Found – Sunshine” 6 X 6″ paper pad
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Brads

This is another Father’s Day card that I will be sending off to Operation Write Home so that our heroes have cards to send to their dads. I liked this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (Sketch #82). This sketch was a little bit of a stretch for me for some reason. Everything I used for this card had been in my stash for a long time, which is kind of fun! The only new thing was the patterned paper! Glad you stopped by.

 


OWH Tuxedo Card

  • Punch – Martha Stewart “Embossed Button”
  • Stamp – Hero Arts “Father’s Day Message”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Twine – Doodlebug Designs
  • Gold brads

I love this card design! I made it by following a tutorial by Sandy Allnock, Executive Director at Operation Write Home (OWH). It is right up there with the Origami neckties that my son and I make every year for OWH! The details are really nice, especially the scored lines that emulate tucks in the shirt and the gold buttons. It was lots of fun to make and I hope to make more to ship off prior to the Father’s Day deadline of April 30th for OWH. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

This is my first Father’s Day card for Operation Write Home this year. Our deadline is the end of April, so I need to get busy. I used Sketch #72 at Cardabilities for design inspiration. It took me forever to make this card–I just kept messing around with it! Thanks for checking things out today!
