Dad's Day

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 388

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge


Hope you had a great week.

I started my card today by stamping the Hero Arts Abstract Wave Bold Prints background stamp with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed that onto a panel of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock. Then I used Distress inks in Salty Ocean and Chipped Saphire with the Chipped Saphire around the edges. 

I used the Abigail QuicKutz dies to cut the Dad out 4 times, then I temporarily adhered them to a strip of cardstock and used Spiced Marmalade Distress ink to blend some color on the letters. I glued them together with a Two-way glue pen and decided that they were a little to brown, so I added a little Carved Pumpkin Distress ink to make it more orange. 

By the way this card is for my Father-In-Law and they are Broncos fans, so That is why I chose the colors that I did.

 I used the All About Dad stamp set from My Favorite Things to stamp a secondary sentiment onto a piece of Black cardstock and used VersaMark ink and white heat embossed it. I used scotch tape to cover where I changed the way the stamp was laid out by using scotch tape to mask off the stamp when inking up the stamp and removing the scotch tape and then stamping. Then I moved the stamp to where I wanted, and repeated the process until I had this the way I wanted.

I adhered the blended background to a white card base and then cut a tay shape from My Favorite Things Elegant Rectangle STAX from Neenah White Cardstock and punched a tag ho;e in the top and adhered that to my panel. 

I adhered the Dad letters to the card with a two-way glue pen and then adhered the strip to the card with strong adhesive and 3M foam tape to the edges. 

I am so glad that you could join me here toady.
