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.

Inside the card.

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!

Thought I’d share the card that I made for my mom for Mother’s Day.

The stamp is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps – Snuggles and Cuddles T503.

I stamped the image twice. Once as a mask so that I could do my background first and then again with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Coloured it in with Spectrum Noir markers.

Here is a close-up.

For the grass I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Mowed Lawn, Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Lucky Clover and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peeled Paint. Used a little grass stamp that I have to add some texture.

Sentiment is from me created in Microsoft Word and the printed out on white cardstock. “Mom” is from My Creative Time – Mom Stamp and Die set.
