Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Father’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today’s card is a simple masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set for Father’s Day. This is a wonderful set with family themes that is great for masculine cards. And it’s going to be carried over to the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! Yay!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the image of the father and daughter from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel. I used this image as it reminds me of my son and granddaughter. I colored the image with Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Flirty Flamingo, Smoky Slate and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered the stamped and colored image to a Basic Black mat.

I adhered a panel of the In Good Taste designer series paper from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog that will be available on June 3 to a Basic Black mat and adhered it to a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Sahara Sand card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and ran it through the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. I adhered it to the card base with liquid glue.

I adhered the layered art panel on the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Sahara Sand and cut it out with the smallest Layering Circle Die. I used the smallest stitched shape die to cut another circle from Basic Black ink and adhered the sentiment to it. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and liquid glue under the art panel. I finished card front with three Designer Elements.

I decorated the inside by stamping the heart from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man stamp set in the upper corner of a Whisper White panel and trimming the bottom with a strip of the In Good Taste DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

The Stampin’ Up! A Good Man is great set for creating masculine cards for any occasion. It is a must have for stampers with lots of men in your families.

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage Father’s Day Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “For the Boys/Men” and it’s perfect with Father’s Day just around the corner! So I made a Father’s Day card to share using the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage cling stamp set and coordinating Garage Gears Dies. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here’s a wonderfully messy Father’s Day Card for the muscle car lover:

I was inspired by the sketch at TGIF Challenges – #TGIFC263 for the layout:

I started by using the oil splotch stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage cling stamp set to stamp all over the front of a Gray Granite card base using Basic Gray ink, only re-inking my stamp occasionally. I embossed a square of Basic Gray card stock with the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder. I adhered the embossed panel to toe card front with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut out several of the gear dies from Basic Gray card stock – 2 large die clusters, a small gear cluster for the inside and a large single gear die. I used a sponge dauber to dab VersaMark Ink on portions of the gears. I sprinkled silver embossing powder on the inked areas and shook off the excess. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny. I repeated the process with copper embossing powder, overlapping the silver in some places and leaving some places without embossing. It make the gears look really cool and kind of rusty! I adhered the gears to a Crumb Cake panel and trimmed the ends. I adhered the panel to the card base with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut the wing die cut from the Garage Gear Dies from Silver Foil. I cut the large backing from Basic Gray and adhered the silver wings on top. I stamped the Best Dad sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage cling stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the wing die. I adhered it to the middle of the label. I stamped the car from the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Thick Whisper White card stock and colored it with Smoky Slate, Real Red and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I added the label to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the Happy Father’s Day stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Garage stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered the small embossed gears to the top corner and ran a Basic Gray strip through the Brick and Mortar embossing folder before adhering it to the the bottom. I adhered the decorated panel to the inside of the card.

The result is a great Father’s Day Card for the Best Dad who likes to get messy playing with their cars!

Best Catch Father’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today’s post is part of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Monthly Team Blog Hop for May 14.

I have been around fishing all my life, so I love the Best Catch stamp set and it’s wonderful images and dies. Trout season opened a while back, but the fathers I know who love fishing would love a Father’s Day card with a fishing theme, so here it is.

Starting with a Tranquil Tide card base and a Crumb cake mat, I sponged a background scene with a colorful morning sunrise on a piece of Naturals White cardstock which gives it a rustic look. For the water, I lightly sponged it with the retired color Island Indigo. The land in the background is made by tearing paper to make a ragged edge mask and I sponged it in Memento Tuxedo Black and Mossy Meadow. The sun is done with a 3/4 circle punch mask in Daffodil Delight; and the rest of the sky has a touch of Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight fading into Soft Sky, Dapper Denim and Night of Navy.

I stamped the fisherman on the background with Soft Suede ink as well as the Happy Father’s Day sentiment. I used the sentiment from the retired Guy Greetings stamp set, because I wanted something specific to Father’s Day, and this is my go-to greeting for that purpose.

I die cut the two of the grass & cattails out of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. I colored the tips of the cattails with Soft Suede and adhered them to the image with multipurpose glue.

I stamped the trout image on thick whisper white cardstock and colored it with markers. I used copic markers because I don’t have enough of the new Stampin’ Blends. Building up my Stampin’ Blends supply is a high priority for me! Then, using the direct to paper technique, I covered the image with Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and set it with the heat tool. This gives it a glossy look like a wet fish and really makes the colors pop. I adhered the shiny trout on top of the grasses with dimensionals.

The inside of the card also has a Crumb Cake mat and is decorated with a fish hook and die cut fishing hat. I stamped the hook in Soft Suede after stamping off twice and I stamped the fishing hat in Soft Suede on a scrap of Crumb Cake and colored a Dapper Denim stripe.

Who plans celebrate Father’s Day by taking their Dad fishing? I’m glad that this stamp set and matching dies are carrying over into the new catalog! I didn’t even use the wonderful fishing creel basket, so I guess I’ll have to do another fisherman card.
