Par-Fect Father’s Day

Stampin up and many mower fathers day

Today's Father's Day card is a challenge extravaganza.  I combined Splitcoast Color Challenge CC 220  and Sketch Challenge SC230.  Sassy Stampin' Denise January, from my Stampin' Pretty Pals downline, suggested the colors for this week's SCS challenge:  So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue.  Here's her sample card,  Congrats, Denise!

  • The Whisper White card base is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4", scored on the top.
  • The "dad" image is from "And Many Mower" (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog).  It's inked in Basic Black and stamped on Whisper White.
  • Using Stampin' Up! Markers and Blender Pens, I made my "dad" quite a colorful character.
  • TIP:  I used a Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand Marker to outline my image for a watercolor look.  The marker idea is from Melissa Young, another Stampin' Pretty Pal.
  • The image was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to Bashful Blue card stock.
  • I mounted the image on the right side of some luscious Pumpkin Pie Textured card stock.  TIP:  After running Whisper White through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder, I cropped out three 3/4" "golf balls" to accent the left side (propped up with Stampin' Dimensionals).
  • A stripe from Washington Apple Designer Series paper is matted on Bashful Blue.  TIP:  A bit of Bashful Blue Textured card stock is shaped with a Photo Corners Punch to add balance to the top right.
  • The vertical panel is More Mustard (an "oops" on my part . . . I meant to use So Saffron to stick with the color challenge).  I zipped it through the Big Shot with a Texturz Plate to give this jazzy finish.
  • The sentiment (also from "And Many Mower") was cropped with the Large Oval Punch and layered over a 1 1/4" Circle of More Mustard (yep, did it again) and a Designer Label Punch in Bashful Blue.
