Happy Father’s Day Card

In case you haven’t heard, today is Father’s Day. :)  I’m lucky enough to have my dad a short 90 minute drive away so this weekend the kids and I are headed to Bellingham to spend some time with him.  So, hopefully you are able to spend some quality time (or quality phone time) with some of the wonderful guys in your life.

At a recent card class, I was able to get my Father’s Day cards done early by holding a Dads and Grads class.  This was one of the cards we created for it:

I was inspired by a non-Stampin’ Up! card I saw on Splitcoast Stampers that had a cool vintage look.  So, I grabbed some of the new World’s Greatest designer series paper and a sponge wedge and got to work creating a vintage card for Dad.

See, this just proves that you can use the Quint-Essential flower for a guy card too.  I used more “manly” colors – Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, and Midnight Muse for the flower and sponged the edges of the card and the Very Vanilla cardstock with Soft Suede.  And of course, gave it dimension by popping up the different layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Quint-Essential Workshop Card

I recently had the opportunity to go to my friend Katie’s house to share a card and the new Stampin’ Up! products with her friends.  It was a fun evening and it gave me some motivation to pull out my new Quint-Essential Flower stamp set and play with some different color combinations.

 

So, if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I LOVE punches and was hooked on the Triple Treat Flower from last catalog.  So, when I saw the Quint-Essential flower and the fact that it is less than $10 for the stamp, I knew I had to have it.

The cool thing is that with this stamp, you can use 5 different punches with this stamp for some fun layers.  So, far I’ve only done 3 layers, but I’m going to go wild and do all 5 soon.  Smile

I CASE’d this card from a similar design from my friend Annie Lee but switched up the stamps, colors, and ribbon.  Isn’t it fun how you can get inspired by a card and end up with something similar and yet completely different.  I put together the color combination – Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder, Gumball Green (quickly becoming my my new favorite green!), and Summer Starfruit.  Turns out to be a nice springy combination I think!

The ladies enjoyed the stamping, punching, and Big Shot-ing … I can make up that word, right?  So, try it out yourself and let me know what you think too!
