Stampin' for Father's Day

Hi All

How are you today? I hope you're having some crafty fun and playing with all your new goodies. We all get stuck for ideas so please feel free to CASE what you see. Stampin' Up! products which were used to make these cards, can be purchased from our ONLINE SHOP

Well today, I wanted to share with you the Father's Day cards myself and Jay made for our wonderful & amazing Dads.

This card was the one I made for my Dad.  It was made by embossing the Kraft Card with the Woodgrain Texture Embossing Folder & adding some gold gilding wax to highlight the texture. I then stamped the Hardwood stamp on a small off cut of Whisper White card stock before die cutting the word 'Happy' from the Hello You Thinlits Dies. The sentiment is from the Crazy about You & the banner is from the Number of Years stamp set which I stamped out & die cut with the matching Large Numbers Framelits Dies. I have wrapped silver string around the card and entwined with the die cut 'Happy'. The banner is attached with Stampin Dimensionals and the whole card is mounted on Whisper White & Night of Navy card stock.
My Dad was really pleased with his card & I hope you all like it too. 


 Jay made this card for his Dad using the Retiform Technique - a technique one of our ladies from our twice monthly card class has asked if we can play with in a future class. To help with the blending around the edges, Jay used the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to draw the outlines and overlapped sponging can be hidden. He used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set to create this amazing card with the sentiment from the Crazy About You stamp set. The die cut leaves are from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies which also has a beautiful matching Botanical Blooms stamp set. 

I hope these have inspired you to try some or all of the techniques used. If you have any questions about Stampin' Up! products or our card making class in Basingstoke, please drop us a message and we will do our best to help you or just leave us a comment bellow. 

Thanks again for looking & have a fun crafty day.
