  • Stampin up fathers day card idea best dad ever rubber stamps catalog The star of my tie "wardrobe" is the Real Red Polka Dot.  It sets the tone for all the red accents.
  • Two of the ties (2nd from left and far right) were inked in Basic Black and stamped on Basic Gray.  I like how it gave the group a bit more diversity.
  • The big scallop border was created with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die (and a Big Shot Die Cut Machine).  Although it's not in the catalog, it's available as part of the Holiday Mini Carryover List.
