For Dad

Later this month is father’s day and to celebrate dad or that special guy in your life Hand Stamped Sentiment’s challenge this week is father’s day/masculine cards.

Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #70

The idea for my Dad card from a picture frame.  I wanted to put each letter in DAD in a frame.  The Curly Label punch fit the bill.  I punched three shapes from the Newsprint DSP and six black ones from Basic Black card stock.  These I used to frame the Newsprint ones.  The next step was to texture the metal sheet with the Perfect Detail Texturz Plate.  The letters are die cut using my Big Shot and the Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die.  I die cut a Basic Black and Riding Hood Red set.  I used the Basic Black letters as a shadow.  I also used the Buttons #5 Sizzlits to die cut some buttons from the Newprint DSP, Basic Black CS and Riding Hood Red CS  I used Hemp Twine for the buttons.  This card came together very easily.  Hop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and upload your manly card.  We’d love to see it!

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Father’s Day Theme Challenge

With Father’s day around the corner, the challenge for this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Father’s Day.  Hop on over and take the challenge.  I would love to see your creation.  For my card below I used My Digital Studio to create the backgrounds, printed them on Whisper White CS and cut them out to create a collage.  I also used My Digital Studio to print out the sentiment from the ‘All Holidays’ digital stamp set .  I used Kraft CS for the card base and I also ran a piece of Kraft through the Big Shot with my Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.  I used this piece behind my sentiment.

I used one of the silver frames from HodgePodge Hardware set.  I cut the frame in half with my Craft & Rubber scissors and adhered it to the back of my sentiment with dimensionals.  I adhered the sentiment to the embossed Kraft with dimensionals then adhered with SNAIL to the blue striped layer.  I put hemp twine through the holes in the silver frame.  I used SNAIL to adhere larger brown pieces and dimensionals for the blue squares then adhered the blue striped and sentiment layer group with dimensionals.  So easy!  I really like the way it turned out.
