At the Beach with Dad

Since I have 2 boys, I had to do 2 Father's Day Cards for them to give to Dear Ole Dad. I find I reach for these sets time and time again. They have always been one of my favorite series that Stampin Up did and am so sorry they went to the retirement home.

Image: Stampin Up: Seaside Sketches, All Around Argle
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy.
Technique: Stippling
Extras: Top Note Die
Ink: Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Creamy Carmel & Close to Coco.
Image: Colored with Copies

This card was done for my older son for him to give to his dear ole Dad. It was quite easy since all I did was stamp the image in the versa mark and then put white detail embossing powder and heat embossed.

Ink: Versa Mark
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black & Soft Sky
Technique: Embossing
Extras: Top Note Die, Black Rhinestones

Bronco Buster

Another retired set that I enjoyed and hated to see go, I've used this set for so many projects. After I stamped the main image, I went over it with the Sanded background stamp. I also distressed the hat with a Stipple Brush by going over it with Creamy Carmel. This was sent to my FIL for Father's day. I had the hat sizzix die for about a year and haven't used it, but it came in handy today,

Stamp: Stampin Up: Bronc Buster, Sanded
Ink: Stampin Up: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Carmel
Paper: Chocolage Chip, Creamy, Carmel, Very Vanilla, DP-Paisley Paper had in my stash

Happily Ever After

I was asked to make a Wedding card for a colleague at work. This is what I made for her and I hope that she likes it since she is rather fussy. For some reason she wants big cards and I told her the biggest I do is 5 ½ x 5 ½. If by chance she doesn’t like it, I will probably send it off to my niece with a bunch of other cards.

Stamp: Inkadinkado-Clear Set-Wedding/Marriage
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black Ink
Card is a pre-embossed pack for DCWV
Paper: Stampin Up: Basic Black, Whisper white
Extras: Self Adhesive Pearls, Nesties, Cuttlebug Flower Die Cut, and 1” circle punch, Flowers are from K Marcella that I found at Targets.
