Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Stamped image High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Cardstock.

Coloured image with Copic markers.

Die cut – Die-namics – Exclusive Designs from My Favorite Things – MFT-652 – Cross-Stitch Rectangle ST and went around with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot.

Stamped background with High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.

Edging around card – Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple

My father-in-law loved his card! Hope you do too!

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad


Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there today!

Sharing a card that I made for my dad who LIVES to fish! Saw these characters on the Marjorieanne site and just knew that I had to have them.

It reminded me of when I used to go fishing with my dad when I was younger.

Used Cricut Explore and and file “fishingwithdad_marjorieanndesigns039887” .svg cutting files for characters, scene and fish, on the front and inside of the card. Inked around all edges with various Tim Holtz Distress Ink colours and used Xyron Create-a-sticker to aid in putting all of the little pieces together.

Created clouds and background water with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Avery Elle – Custom Steel Dies – Made in the USA – D-05-01 PiercedCloudsDie.

Background paper – Gone Fishing PA-0909 – American Traditions Designs.

Card background is actually white, but it shows up as a light grey here.

Sentiment is from – Your Next Stamp – Keepin’ it Reel – CYNS388.

My dad loved it! Hope you do too!
