Father’s Day Fun Cards

Punch art is our fun for today as we punch away to make a hamburger with chips and a pickle!

 

 

Recipe

  • Base:  Thick White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1 (X2): Merry Merlot, 5 1/4 X 4
  • Tablecloth:  Designer Series Paper in red plaid, 5 X 3 3/4; note: with a 6X6 DSP, cut the 5″ first and then the 3 3/4
  • Inside: DSP red plaid leftover from cutting the layer, cut to 1″ X 5″
  • Plate:  Basic White, 4 X 3, die cut with 4th largest oval die, emboss with Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder
  • Greeting:  Basic White, 2 1/2 X 5 1/2,
    • stamp in memento black ink with greeting from Sprinkles Of Life stamp set
    • die cut with Beautiful Shapes Die
    • adhere with dimensionals
  • Hamburger
    • Bun: Crumb Cake, 2 X 6, run crosswise in Raindrop Embossing Folder so half the strip is embossed for the top and half is not for the bottom of the bun to glue directly to the plate
    • Punch 2 from large oval punch, sponge edge with soft suede
    • Meat: Soft Suede, 2 1/4 X 1 1/2, punch with Large Oval Punch, dob straight down using sponge and Early Espresso to create speckled texture; use dimensionals to pop up on bottom bun slightly offset, all other layers are glued directly to previous layer
    • Cheese: Daffodil Delight, 1″ Square punched from scrap, don’t sponge;
    • Lettuce:  Granny Apple Green, 1 3/4 X 2 3/4, punched with Pretty Label Punch, sponge edge w/green
    • Tomatoes (2):  Real Red, 2 X 1 1/4, punch with 1″ Circle Punch, sponge edge w/real red
    • Onion: Designer Series Paper w/purple, use 1″ circle punch- cut one full circle, then punch along that cutout’s edge with just part of the punch
  • Note:  When adhering the hamburger to the plate, use two dimensionals on top of each other to be able to have the right depth for attaching the hamburger at the back side, the front just needs a one dimensional layer
  • Potato Chips:  1 1/4 X 11 strip of very vanilla envelope paper; run through crimper, use 3/4″ X 15/16″ oval punch to punch 7 potato chips, adhere randomly on plate
  • Pickle:  Garden Green Scrap, Granny Apple Green Scrap,  punch each color with Word Window Punch lining up on a straight edge and punching only half, or punch a full one and cut it in half, then use your scissors to make tiny divots on the edges and then use a Garden Green Marker to add dots for texture
  • Embellish with a bee or a dragonfly or an ant; my little bee is from the So Hoppy Together stamp set

Inside Greeting:  Basic White, 2 X 2, stamp using Black Memento Ink with greeting from Guy Greetings, cut with another of the Beautiful Shapes Dies

You used a die that isn’t symmetrical – that’s outside the ‘box’ for you

Sure enough!  Another of those dies that I said I would never use! Ha

Summer has finally arrived in Castle Rock so I had better go water my plants!  Have a wonderful day and thank you for spending part of it with Sal and I!

Father’s Day with Enjoy Life

To all the wonderful men in our life that we need to celebrate and those we will always remember this Father’s Day:  Happy Father’s Day!

I used the Enjoy Life stamp set (retired) and the Silhouette Scenes (pg 136) to make three Father’s Day Cards:

The greeting:  “When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive: to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

I did three different inside greetings as well using the “A Good Man” stamp set on page 32.

For my son-in-law, Tyler, with two little boys, Jaxson & Emmitt:

  

For my son-in-law, Jonathan, with a little girl – Emma:

 

For Paul:

       

Here they are at the Cheyenne Mtn. Zoo in Colorado Springs:

   

Such a great dad and such a great grandpa!

   That looks like so much fun!  But I am wondering how you did that cool bokeh look for the background of the card front. 

Well, Sal, it isn’t hard.  Let me take a picture of the tools I use:

   

It is a piece of window sheet with several different sizes of circles punched in the sheet.  (I placed the window sheet on black for the picture so you could see the different circles.)  The largest circle is 1 1/2″, then  1″,  3/4″,  and  5/8″ punched circles.

First, I used the Sponge Brayer (#141714 on pg. 147) and Mint Macaron ink and lightly sponged the entire front whisper white piece.

Then I placed the window sheet on that front sponged piece, held it in place with washi tape, and sponged several times over all the circles.  I moved the window sheet to a new place on the front piece, secured it with tape, and sponged the circles again.

  May we see that up close, please?

Sure, let me zoom it a bit:

The circles overlap giving the out of focus bokeh look!

I cased this layout from one at StampinSavvy.com.  She used a watercolor wash for the background and added long hair to the image of the silhouette. I wanted a masculine silhouette instead so I used our Take Your Pick tool’s pointy end and removed ink from the neckline before stamping so it didn’t have any hair on the neck.  I also increased the arm and leg sizes with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.

We still sell the Basic Black marker individually -pg 147, #100082.   I used the black marker to color the edge of the front piece by using the side of the marker- not the tip -to color all around the edge.  The Just Jade base was stamped at the bottom with Versa Mark and the grass stamp in Enjoy Life.

For the inside greeting, I used the black marker once again to color the “to be a” of the Enjoy LIfe greeting stamp – see above in red.  This brought the same font from the front to the inside. Remember – only use the Stampin’ Write Markers to color the back of your stamps, if you use the alcohol Stampin’ Blends they will stain your stamp.

I used the retired Guy Greetings set for the dad, grandpa and Happy Father’s Day words and the Make A Difference stamp set for a nice exclamation point.

And “voila” we are done!

  Not to be a pest, but could we have the recipe?

Of course, it is a great layout that would work with dozens of stamps.

Recipe

  • Base:  Just Jade  8 1/2 X 5 1/2  scored at 4 1/4
  • First Layer:  DSP (designer series paper) Forever Greenery 5 1/2 X 1 3/4

Happy Father’s Day- Pinwheel Spinner Card

Hello Stamping Friends,

How the year is flying by!  Father’s Day crept up on me this year and I had to employ the help of my DH, darling husband, to make the Father’s Day cards.  I had done a spinner card for Mother’s Day using the Sunflower card from Deb Valders Stampladee blog, (thank you, Deb), and thought it only appropriate to do a Father’s Day spinner card.  Deb demonstrated how to do a pinwheel spinning card and that seemed masculine enough!

I picked a bright piece of DSP, and matched it with Bermuda Bay and Tangerine Tango for use as the card base and accent border.  The greeting comes from the “Guy Greetings” set, a set that did carryover to the new catalog – hurrah!

POSTAGE HELP:  The green button makes the card “nonmachinable” which means it will have a 22 cent surcharge to mail.  Be very careful when you take your cards to the post office that you use the term “Nonmachinable”.  I have taken cards in and been charged the small parcel fee which is about $2.49.  The correct cost should be only 71 cents.  I have written “Hand Stamp Please” on the envelope and still been charged the small parcel fee.  It was nice to meet Dale at our local post office who searched for the correct category and even had a stamp to mark the envelope “Nonmachinable”.  No more wasted postage.
