IT"S A DAD THING....

Good Monday mornin' all!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! Mine was full of baseball, and cooking on the barbecue so it was a lot of fun. Too quick though!! So, today I am going to share a card I made for Father's Day - I really love the For Father stamp set, it is perfect for those masculine cards. This one is done using Jen's Saturday sketch - I just love doing her sketches, and this one was really fun! The base of this card is Ruby Red card stock, then layered with Rose Red Designer Series Prints paper. Then, I took a piece of So Saffron card stock and stamped it using my Weathered Background stamp in So Saffron Classic Ink. The image is stamped on Whisper White card stock, then adhered to a piece of Ruby Red card stock. All the paper is punched using my Ticket Corner Punch. The image is stamped in Brown Stazon, then colored in using my Stampin' Write markers and a blender pen. I love mixing my colors, and the blender pen does a marvelous job! I added some faux stitching around the image and sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel Classic Ink. I added three vintage brads to the corner as well. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White card stock in Brown Stazon and is from the Holiday Blitz Stamp set. I punched it out using my Large Oval Punch, softly sponged it with Creamy Caramel Classic Ink, and added a piece of Antique Hodgepodge Hardware. The ribbon is 5/8 inch Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon, and I added two build-a-brads with the center punched out from the Rose Red dp prints. Not too much froufrou for a dad, I hope!!

Check out my swap sign-up and let me know if you are interested! Some have asked me if it is okay if they participate even if they have never done one before - and the answer is of course!! If you want further guidance on what to do, feel free to send me an email and I will be happy to help! This is supposed to be fun *wink* Have a wonderful day everyone!
