Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!! I hope you have something fun planned for the father’s, father’s to be, grandfathers, great grandfathers, fur father’s etc. I have a nice surprise for my husband from my son, daughter and I planned. Today is also my son’s birthday. I know I don’t talk about him a lot. I’m close with him, but he’s a man and doesn’t spend much time with mom. He’s been the apple of my eye since the day he was born. My little preemie is 27 and over 6′ tall. He’s a lot of fun to hang out with, he’s naturally funny, a soccer coach and loves being outside. He’s very friendly and personable and makes friends wherever he goes, we were on a ride together in Disney and he made a friend there. I thought before I get to my card, I’d share a few pictures of him. The pictures are from Disney in 2020, but he looks the same.
Thank you for letting me share. Today’s card is a CAS card using stamps, ink and paper. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! Treasured Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the 2022-2024 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and Blending Brushes for my card today.
I played along with The Sisterhood of Crafters Seasonal Landscapes Challenge.
I started by adhering a panel of the 2022-2024 In-Color DSP to a Starry Sky card base. On a Basic White card front, I started at the bottom of the panel using my Blending Brushes with Soft Succulent Ink. Working my way up I used Pale Papaya, Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky Inks making sure to blend them between colors. I then cut the panel down to a 3 3/4″ X 5″ card front using my Paper Trimmer.
I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink in the center of the panel. Using the Treasured Kindness stamp set, I stamped the detailed tree trunk image in Soft Suede Ink. I stamped the tree trunk fill image in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the detailed tree top image in Evening Evergreen Ink and the tree top fill image in Evening Evergreen Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the image below the tree in Soft Suede Ink once full strength and again stamped off.
On a strip of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the ends of the strip into a banner using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Glue Dots. I snipped a thin piece of Starry Sky cardstock on an angle using my Paper Snips and adhered it under the sentiment banner using Glue Dots. I adhered the card front to the Starry Sky card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sun image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once on scrap paper. I stamped the tree image from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the bottom of the panel the same as I did for the card front.
To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree and sun images from the Treasured Kindness stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of 2022-2024 In-color DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
