Happy Father's Day

This is the card that I made for my Dad for Father's Day! He really seemed to like it and I'm so glad because I really enjoyed making it for him. I love to use stamps that have "line" images and then use ink pads or refills and Aqua Painters to color in the images and give it that nice water coloring look. It gives me the feeling of painting without actually painting. It is that soft look that I like, don't you?

Card Recipe:

  • Stamps- For Father
  • Papers- Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla card stocks
  • Inks-Basic Brown, Real Red, Old Olive, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Blue Bayou Ink pads
  • Embellishments- Kraft Taffeta ribbon
  • Tools- Stampin' Sponge and Aqua Painters

I'm going to be busy this week getting ready for my Mystery Hostess party which is on Saturday. I've got a lot to do to get ready! I'm on the lookout for some great "summer lookin" projects to do so if you see any anywhere that you think I might like to do, let me know...just leave me a comment! If you haven't RSVP'd for my Mystery Hostess party yet...hurry and do so! If you would like to have more info about the party, email me!

Did you stamp any this weekend? I hope so!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Stampin'
