Father's Day Cards

Hello Friends ,
With fathers day round the corner here are cards that I am making for the occasion . You can see all the other fun creations with my son for Father's day HERE

I'm excited to be trying new techniques for my creations , for both my cards I have tried  Wet embossing, also called heat embossing, is creating by covering a freshly stamped image with embossing powder and drying with a heat element. You need the embossing powder to stick to the inked image before heating it, so you'll want an ink pad that dries slowly. Pigment ink works well. I have used VersaMark ink pad.

Card 1

  • I started with creating a harsh weather sky as a background in a circle with distress ink .  
  • I have stamped and coloured the little bear on his tyre with copic markers and fussy cut it . 
  • I have layered the stamped bear on the tier over the circle with double sided foam tape to a dimension.
  • I have added the sentiment from lawn fawn "float my boat" stamp set , I have heat embossed it on a black cardstock .
  • The card is completed with the sentiment stamped directly on the card saying "To the best Daddy "

Card 2 

For this card I have tried no line colouring technique,  by heat embossing the shirt stamped images with clear embossing powder. I have then coloured these shirts with zig watercolour brush pens . I have stamped the sentiment and adhered it with a blue cardstock on top of the main card .

I enjoyed trying out new styles on these cards , Yes I will still want to keep getting better and better than what I’m right now, and then better myself some more. But I will do it all whilst having fun. So, I do hope you'll keep joining me throughout to provide support and encouragement as I keep working towards these goals.

  1. A very wonderful array of masculine cards. The little boy on the tube is so adorable and the sentiment you used for all the cards is great. Any Dad would be pleased to receive anyone of these cards. Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers for our Man/Boy Challenger.
