Welcome to day 3 of the Ink To Paper Countdown! Today I'm sharing two projects; the first one using the new sentiment set called "World's Best Dad". This particular set has lots of different names for "dad" which is always helpful depending on who will be getting the card, and even who will be GIVING the card. We're also using a new background stamp called "Rustic Brick".
Because this set doesn't have any "images", just sentiments, I created the focal point by using a layered tag. This particular one is a favorite of mine and does have a masculine feel. It is the Tag Sale #7 die and I love using it for all types of projects.
I also created the banner at the top which gave me the opportunity to show a few more of the smaller sentiments. The banner was created by die cutting some blue paper using the Banner Builder die set.
All of the sentiments are embossed in gold to help them stand out.
The background was created by stamping the Rustic Brick stamp using Distress Oxide ink and then adding some ink blending around the edges.
The next card I'm sharing today uses the new Simply Sweet: You stamp set. I pinned a wedding type picture a year or so ago and it reminded me so much of these cute images. I paired it with the super old, but awesome, Road Trip pattern paper . I stamped the mountain images and then fussy cut the map paper and added it using liquid glue.
The sun is stamped in orange with a drop of Nuvo Crystal Glaze in the center. I stamped the "YOU" in black at the top of the striped paper using my MISTI to line it up properly. I also stamped the "will move mountain" in black.
I lucked out and had some rust colored thread that was in my sewing machine from mending holes in the knees of pants (story of my life with boys) and it worked perfectly for this card. I stamped the heart at the bottom for a quick and easy graduation card. Thanks for fluttering by!
