Trusty Tools & more

Father’s Day is right around the corner so today I thought I’d share some wonderful cards to celebrate those Dads in our lives. The Trusty Tools Stamp Set (163274) includes great all occasions sentiments along with

sentiments for Dad in addition it has a set of Trusty Tools Dies (162722) that coordinates and gives you even more options.

This first card made with the set uses the die to create a pegboard background and is done in Real Red, Blueberry Bushel and Gray Granite. The word Dad has been stamped and cut out with Paper Snips and Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems (161288) were added to recreate the pegs they hang from. For a more nature look this next card uses the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393)

to create a backdrop for the tools and sentiment. A bit of Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475) wrapped around the layered panel adds a bit more color and texture. And for a final card today using this stamp set a simple thank you card.

The brushes are “dipped” into the Classic Ink and then dragged to create the paint look for this cool look. Our Metallics Enamel Effects Basic (161610) were used to create the dots on the metal band for each brush and the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (160766) adds a bit of industrial feel to the background.

How about turning our eyes to the sky with this next card? The Take to the Sky Suite Collection (163832) includes everything you need to create wonderful projects with it’s shades of blue. The Adventurous Sky Bundle (163447) makes me think of my step father who took flying lessons when I was in high school. I was so proud of him when he was able to fly solo!

This card is a fun fold called a Criss Cross Card and have a fun way it opens. The little flap that is created with the fold

can be used to hold a sentiment or even a gift card

Do you love simple stamping and an easy technique? This next card using the Beside Me stamp set (160780) has been stamped on Very Vanilla Card Stock using Crumb Cake Classic Ink.

The background has been dry embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder (160766) and Early Espresso Classic Ink has been sponged across the texture to highlight it.

My final card today uses the Gone Fishing stamp set (161535) and coordinating Gone Fishing Dies (161541) and is perfect for those dads who love to fish. A piece of the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) mimics the stamped water in the bottom left section of the “tackle box”.
