Happy Father's Day!

Hi Friends! 

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far!!    

I know, what- Father's Day?  This weekend is Mother's Day... and you are right!  I am not confused and am hoping most of you have already finished your Mother's Day cards, so I am looking ahead to Father's Day :-)

Birch Forest Dies
Tender Thoughts
Today it is my turn to share on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog and I am sharing a quick Father’s Day card that I designed with TenderThoughts Clear Stamp Set, Shining Light Clear Stamp Set and the coordinating die set, Birch Forest Dies – I just love both of these stamp sets as well as the matching dies!

In addition to Father’s Day, I think that the images and sentiments from the Tender Thoughts Clear Stamp Set are perfect for so many occasions- Birthday, Sympathy, Thinking of You, Praying for You, Christmas, Get Well and many more, plus no fussy-cutting with the Birch Forest Dies (love saving time)!
Shining Light

The Shining Light Clear Stamp Set is just as versatile- love the lighthouse image and several verses of Scripture- again, perfect for so many occasions!

Combine the three and you have a fantastic combination of stamps and dies to create cards along with projects to bless those in your life all year round!

I hope you will find the time to visit us at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps blog as well as checking out the cards and galleries at the above challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the birch tree image from the TenderThoughts Clear Stamp Set using Smoky Slate Classic Ink, stamp onto white cardstock and die cut with the Big Shot™ and the coordinating die from Birch Forest Dies...(FYI- I use the magnetic platform with my Big Shot™ which helps immensely, but if you do not have the magnetic platform, you will need to use a quick release tape or Washi Tape to hold the die in place).

Repeat the above steps with the deer image from the Tender Thoughts Clear Stamp Set using Archival Stampin’ Pad™ Basic Black Ink (heat set with the Heat Tool).

Stamp the sentiment from the Shining Light Clear Stamp Set with Archival Stampin’ Pad™ Basic Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock (I created the banners  with a punch).

Create a few more banners from patterned paper ( I sponged the dotted layer using Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink), layer onto the dry embossed background and add a black button for interest.

Ink/Medium: Archival Stampin’ Pad™ Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink; Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black; retired Designer Series Paper (Stampin’ Up!)

Accessories: Big Shot™, Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Birch Forest Dies (Sweet ‘n SassyStamps), Heat Tool, Sponge Dauber, retired Basic Black button, White Thread, Sanding Block

Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and have a blessed weekend, sweet friends!
