Happy Father's Day!!



Hi everyone...Happy Father's Day and happy first day of summer! Hope you all had a great weekend! I just wanted to share the father's day cards that I made for my dad, step-dad, and my bf's dad.

I basically used the same layout for all three cards (I just switched up the stamps and the colours of paper). I inked up Beerafella or Grillafella (from Stamping Bella)with Memento ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured them in with my Stampin' Write markers. I chose to use either Pacific Point, Baja Blue, or Kraft cardstock as my base for the cards and added Manchester Designer Series paper as the background. I ran some scraps of cardstock through my cuttlebug using the labels two nestabilites (love them...I think they are more masculine looking than labels one) and popped it up on the Manchester dp. I also popped up the fellas and added some glossy accents to all three images and stickles to the Beerafella. I finished off the cards by adding some Whisper White organza ribbon and some rhinestones from Basic Grey.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my Father's day creations...have a great night everyone!!
