Happy Father's Day!


Hi Friends!!

This is another card that I designed this weekend using Our Daily Bread Design (ODBD) stamps along with an image from Crafty Individuals for the Splitcoaststampers’ (SCS) CC586 "Green Pool Mist" Color Challenge, the SCS #09 Sketch Challenge (modified the layers a bit on the flipped sketch) and the As You See It #136 “Dad” Challenge.

My Dad as well as my Father-in-Law both loved to fish and while my Dad prefers fishing from a boat (deep sea/bay fishing), my FIL loved fly fishing and when I saw this Crafty Individuals image, it reminded me of him.  

Since I have had owned this image for over a year now, I thought it was time to ink it up ...even though my FIL passed away in 1999, I designed this card in memory of him- he was a great man and fishing was his passion :-)

If you have not had an opportunity to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Fish Net Background (ODBD) stamp using Marina Mist Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Trim the panel and using a modified version of the Smakin’ Acetate Technique (see below) add the Pool Party and Marina Mist splatter over the net image.

Modified version of the Smakin’ Acetate Technique:

Take a clear acetate envelope (or you can use a transparency sheet), use scissors to cut up the one side and across the top and bottom of the envelope (this creates a “book”), open the envelope so both sides are flat on the table,  apply ink to one side of the open “book” and spritz the ink lightly with a water, close the other side of the “book” onto the ink, use your fingers to “smoosh” the ink, open the envelope and press the cardstock into the ink repeating as necessary (see the full version of the Smakin’ Acetate tutorial here at Splitcoaststampers).


Use a Sponge Applicator to add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink to “age” the paper, layer the splattered panel onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock, trim and layer onto Marina Mist cardstock, trim and layer onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

Position the “Fresh Fish Daily” image from Crafty Individuals onto the MISTI® Tool and ink using Marina Mist Classic Ink.

Stamp the image onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, open the lid and re-ink just the fish images with Garden Green Classic Ink, re-stamp over the Marina Mist image and apply Clear Wink of Stella® to the fish images.

Trim the panel, add the splatter with Pool Party Classic Ink (using the modified version of the Smakin’ Acetate technique- see above) and sponge the edges with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink to “age” the paper, layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and layer onto a piece of Garden Green cardstock, trim and layer onto a piece of Marina Mist cardstock.

Add the looped Gold Trim to the card front and mount the fisherman focal image panel with dimensional foam.

De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from The Waves on the Sea (ODBD) with Versamark™ ink, add Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

To finish the card, create the banner ends for the sentiment with the Hexagon Punch and mount the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Stamp Sets: Fish Net Background, The Waves on The Sea (Our Daily Bread Designs); Fresh Fish Daily (Crafty Individuals)

Ink: Versamark™, Marina Mist, Pool Party, Garden Green Classic Ink;  Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink; Clear Wink of Stella®

Paper: Extra Thick and Regular Whisper White, Garden Green, Marina Mist, Basic Black

Accessories: MISTI® , Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Clear Envelope, Water Spritzer Bottle, Gold Cord, Hexagon Punch (retired)


Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- you are all such an encouragement to me!

What a glorious Father's Day card! For a fisherman father, it's perfect. I love the way you've layered up stamps and inks to create the background panel. I think the "greening" of the fish is finishing detail that brings all the elements together. Thank you for joining us at As You See It. It's always a pleasure to see your work!
