Artistic Etchings Father's Day

Still on vacation here in Pigeon Forge. Getting ready to make a trip to Gatlinburg. As usual, vacation is going way too fast!

My Hubby's Father's Day Card

Yes, I'm still alive! Last week I was super busy getting ready for our vacation. Now, we're on vacation and relaxing. It's wonderful! I did get a little stamping done before we left, though. Today's card is the Father's Day card I made my husband. I didn't have my "Happy Father's Day" stamp, so I had to improvise a little bit. I did write "Happy Father's Day" inside the card, though.

I decided to use one of the new catalog stamp sets I preordered, Studio Sketches. I love stamps sets that make me look like an artist! I also used one of the new colors, Cherry Cobbler, and the Summer Mini impressions folder, Square Lattice.

My inspiration for this card came from one of the card in the new catalog. For future reference (and for demonstrators that have their catalogs, the card that inspired me is on p. 115 (the bottom of the page). The new catalog has a lot of great project ideas. I just love it, and I know you will too!

Stamps: Studio Sketches (new catty) & Wonderful Favorites

Ink: Basic Gray, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chipk, & More Mustard Classic pads

Paper: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, & Naturals Ivory card stock; Watercolor Paper

Just in Time for Father's Day

I can't believe Father's Day is only a little over a week away! I've been so busy getting ready for my daughter's graduation open house that I haven't had time to think about Father's Day. Here are some great cards that 2 of my stampin' sisters made. All three of these cards would make great Father's Day cards. I hope you like them as much as I do!

Another Graduation Card

Here's another card I made for another graduate. I saw someone else do a card with this same layout and stamp set, and I decided to use it myself. I again used Mooresville's colors. I also used the stamp set, Go, Graduate and the SU! Square Lattice Impressions Folder on p. 24 of the Summer Mini like yesterday's post. I watercolored the blue gowns and shoes, and colored the yellow gowns with the Crushed Curry marker like yesterday. I didn't watercolor the three caps, though. They were colored in with markers, and then punched out with a circle punch.

Stamps: Go, Graduate (Mini)

Ink: Basic Black & Brilliant Blue Classic ink pads; Crushed Curry & Brilliant Blue Stampin' Write Markers

Paper: Crushed Curry, Brilliant Blue, & Naturals White card stock; Tea Party DSP

Accessories: Big Shot die-cut machine, SU! Square Lattice Impressions Folder (Mini), Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aqua Painters, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Crushed Curry Polka-Dot ribbon, Fire Square Rhinestone Brads, Paper Piercer, & Mat Pack

Graduation Card

Happy Tuesday! I tried to post yesterday morning, but Blogger was having technical difficulties. Thankfully, it seems to be working now.

It's graduation open house time around here. This is one of the cards I made for one of the graduating kids' open houses last weekend. I CASEd this card off of SCS, but I can't remember who it was.

I used Mooresville's colors on this card (Blue & Gold). The set I used, Go, Graduate, is on p. 24 in the Summer Mini. I also used the Impressions Folder that's on the same page on the blue strip and the scallop circle. All of the images were colored using Watercolor Crayons, an Aqua Painter, and the Crushed Curry marker. The owl scallop circle was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. All of the colors are also ones that are retiring.

Stamps: Go, Graduate (Mini)

Basic Black & Brilliant Blue Classic ink pads; Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker

Crushed Curry, Brilliant Blue, & Naturals White card stock

Aqua Painter, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Crushed Curry Polka-Dot ribbon, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Big Shot die-cut machine, SU! Square Lattice Impressions Folder (Mini), & Stampin' Dimensionals
