Hello crafty friends. Father’s day is in just a few days. I’m so excited because our daughter is coming in to celebrate with her dad. I’m pretty sure neither of my kids will have cards for him. Luckily, I’ve got a few made.
I’ve been trying to use more of my supplies lately. So I brought our the Ranger Alcohol inks. These backgrounds are so very simple to make. I start by adding a little isopropyl alcohol to yupo paper. Then I added a few drops of Denim ink. Using my Tim Holtz Ink Blower, I move the ink around. I continued by adding in Citrus, Mermaid, and Silver ink and alcohol until I was happy with combination. I set this panel aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
Have you seen these new Alphabet Tiles stamp? It’s amazing. I cut down a piece of Eclipse Black Solid Core cardstock and prepped it with an anti-static tool. I inked up the stamp with Clear ink then turned the paper and stamped the image again. I applied Snow Flurries Embossing Powder and heat set it with a heat gun.
I fussy cut the letters that I was going to use for the sentiment. I’ll set aside the rest for another project
I cut the yupo paper down to 4⅛ x 5¼ inches and glued it to Eclipse Black cardstock cut to 4¼ x 5½ inches. I then glued all that to an A2 Top Fold Card Base.
Many times I stamp and color images for future use. That was the case with this car from On Track stamp set I added dimensional foam to the back and placed it toward the bottom the the card. I also added foam tape to to each letter. I center the word DAD and then starting with the T, worked backward to make sure the letters were even spaced.
Thank you for stopping by
Until next time – Jackie❤
