Happy Fathers Day

Hi everyone,

Well I hope that everyone has been spoiling their Dads, Hubby's or Partners today as it is their special day.

Naturally we need to make a card for them to go with their gifts and this then brings out the OMG what am I going to make? Masculine stamps are few and far between and unfortunately a few that were in our last mini catalogue were not carried over to our new main catalogue.

I have three cards to show you. This first one is for my Dad.

This one shows the stamp Sail A Way that was in the last mini. Now although it has not been carried over to the new catalogue it has not been retired yet - so I guess I can get away with it!!! The Jumbo Eyelet unfortunately has retired but I managed to get a little stash before they all sold out.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Sale A Way, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White, Marina Mist DSP
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Night of Navy
Other: 1/4" Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, Jumbo Eyelet, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF

This next card is for my Father in Law. My Hubby and I got married 20 years ago on Fathers Day. My Hubby is one of 4 boys and I remember when my FIL made his speech at the reception he said that he and my MIL had been without a daughter for the last 20 odd years but now they finally had one. So needless to say my FIL has a very special place in my heart.

I have used the much neglected set Pendant Park. I just love the tree and for some reason this set always drops to the bottom of the pile. I actually inked the tree up using three different greens and my trusty daubers (although it is a little difficult to tell!!)

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Pendant Park, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Always Artichoke, River Rock, Early Espresso, Always Artichoke DSP, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Garden Green
Other: 1/4" Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon, Jumbo Eyelet, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF

This last card is one that I made for my girls to give to their Daddy. Note I made this card at 7am this morning whilst my DH was having a sleep in!!!

Rather than using the Pennant Parade set I dragged out my Party This Way set for the banner. I did use my Petite Pennant Builder Punch to punch out the banner. An easier way of doing things than having to cut them out like I have done before!!!

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Party This Way
Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Pacific Point, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Pacific Point
Other: Hemp Twine, Petite Pennant Builder Punch, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Top Note Die, Timeless Junior Alphabet Sizzlets, Movers & Shapers Punch Windows Star.

I am now going out for lunch with my sister and my Dad which will be great.

Hope you all have a great day.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time


Juliette

Well I must say, they are all very lucky men to be receiving those beautiful cards Juliette...even if one was made at 7am. ;)
