group of 3 fathers day cards

With fathers day just around the corner now I thought I would show this group of three fathers Day cards that I made using Simple Stories Awesome papers, and my Docrafts papermania Dad stamp. The general theme is the same, just swapped around the colours, and used Stampin Up cardstock for the base card. On all the cards i stamped the Dad stamp a few times and fussy cut the letters out to mix and match .Some flags were fussy cut from the papers, and twine and brads were also used. Today I finished some christmas card ideas I had floating around, and now I am ready to head to the craft room to create some bright sunny cards in the hope that it encourages the real thing to show itself – It has been an amazingly wet ,cold and dreary winter, and I am ready to see a little sunshine! Til tomorrow…

The Open Sea fathers day

Found this one while browsing through my files – also found some different ideas, which I will show over the next few days- The paper used here is stampin Up designer paper, for the background, and the panel that I have wrapped the bakers twine around is kaisercraft from the Mismatched range.The Boat is a stamp from Stampin Up – The open sea set,and I stamped it in Choc chip ink, and then used an oval spellbinder to cut the shape out. Quick post tonight, as it’s shopping night – no crafting tonight! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft sears & sons Fathers day card 5

This is the last in this series for a little while because I feel in the need of something frilly, and blingy! Kaisercraft Sears & sons paper and collectables for this one, and I swiped all the edges with my tim holtz weathered wood stamp pad. A bit of string around the top for the bunting, and all stuck onto Stampin Up not quite navy cardstock.I have prepared all my market boxes, and I have a terrible feeling that after Sundays market I will be making more fathers day cards. I thought I had enough, but have already sold quite a few, so next week it’s back to mens cards!I have a village class tonight, and we are making christmas cards, so quite looking forward to that. Til tomorrow….

Fathers Day Sears & sons card 4

There are 2 photos tonight – the second photo shows what happens when you turn the Tim Holtz ideology game spinner on the front of the card.The paper is Kaisercraft Sears and Sons, and I liked the strip of paper that had the sentiment on it so I turned it into the focal point of the card – hidden messages are great! The cardstock I used is Stampin Up early espresso.I used a couple of the collectables from the matching pack to decorate the very front of the card.My orders are complete, so I hope to do a little bit in the craft room tonight, but then it will be time to get organised for my Market stall on Sunday. Til tomorrow….

Pink Paislee London market

Quick post tonight, as tea is burning as we speak! Over the next couple of days I will show a couple of cards i made using Pink Paislee London Market paper – its a lovely vintage style paper, and On this card I teamed it with the matching pink paislee ephemera pack, and a couple of odd bits and pieces I had in the bottom of a drawer! Hoping to have a nice session in the craft room tonight – i have the next couple of days off, and have to get some orders done – Til tomorrow….

A mix of papers and some twine…

I have combined a couple of different papers here for this male birthday card ( would work just as well for Fathers day. From the base – Stampin Up cardstock – Not quite navy, the backfground paper and banner – Simple stories Awesome, the tag – stampin up naturals ivory, the denim pocket – october afternoon sasparilla. The pocket was stamped with my kazzazz stamp – large pocket, and then cut out – looks like the real thing doesn’t it? and I added craftworkcards candi and threaded the tag with stampin up bakers twine.This is a great card if you are giving a gift voucher because is fits into the pocket.  Someone today was my 50,ooo th visitor – that’s exciting and what keeps me blogging – thank you all so much for continuing to visit!

After all those girly butterfly cards it’s time to look at a few male cards. I have put a happy birthday greeting on this one, but it would  also work as a fathers day card. the papers are from the Simple stories Awesome range, and I fussy cut around the bike and mounted it with 3d squares.  All I added were 3 Craftworkcard candis in the top corner. I distressed and inked the edges, ad that is all there is to this one!I have a couple of orders to complete tonight, so Til tomorrow….

Another fathers day card

I saw a card simialr to this while I was blog hopping, and thought I could repeat it with the supplies i had on hand, and this is what i came up with. I used Stampin Up cardstock – crumbcake,Very vanilla,early espresso and Cherry cobbler and the boat stamp is from Stampin Up the Open Sea stamp set.I used an embossing folder which i can’t recall the brand name of and my circle nestabilities. For around the port hole I dotted platinum liquid pearls, and my stamp pad of choice was stampin up choc chip. Another day spent planning lessons, nearly done now! Til tomorrow…

Male card – Birthday/fathers day

Todays card is a male card suitable for a birthday or fathers day. I used Stampin Up cardstock ( not quite navy), and embossing folder – square lattice, and aKaszazz stamp  ( pocket large). I found a scrap of textured brown cardstock for the belt, and stamped the hammer using my Stampin Up totally tools stamp set.I just had to add a couple of brads, and a handmade tag to slide into the pocket and it was finished! The good thing about this card is that you could slide a gift card into the pocket. Today has been spent finalising my books for the end of the financial year, but after tea I will be in the craft room planning out my next vilage lesson. Til tomorrow….
