Itty Bitty Greetings for Father’s Day

Do you love a stamp set that gives you all kinds of options – It’s why I love the 3 different Itty Bitty sets that we have. They give you lots of options and take you through the year!

As an added bonus a lot of these sentiments fit in our Classic Label Punch (141491) which makes it a great set for those who might be newer to stamping or worry about stamping the sentiment straight. You can’t go wrong with stamping and then punching it out!

Check out this lovely card made using the Rooted in Nature stamp set (148217) and a quick and easy Stampin’ Write Marker Technique called thumping.

Hows it done? The stamp was colored first with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker on the trunk and then with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker for the canopy. After that the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker was thumped or bounced randomly around the canopy to add the second color. When you have all the coloring done you breath on it to re-moisten the ink and then stamp as desired. So easy, but a really cool look, don’t you think?

Our Stampin’ Write Markers come in all 4 Color Collections and can be purchased separately or in a marvelous case option with all 40 Colors from our 4 Color Families. So you can get them all or build your collection over time, the choice is yours!

I really like the stamp set Rooted in Nature for masculine cards so here are a couple more cards using the set.

And if you love dies, there is a coordinating set called Nature’s Roots (151786) that you can get too. This next card teams up the set with our very popular In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494) that is filled with wood images and the Just Jade 2020-2022 In Color.

Stamp Set: Rooted in Nature (148217) and Itty Bitty Greetings (151331)

Geared Up Garage

It the week before Father’s Day so I thought it would be a great time to share some wonderful sets that include Father’s Day sentiments. Today’s set is the Geared Up Garage stamp set (148590). It’s perfect for our guys who love those classic cars. And it is a perfect choice for my guy since he’s a classic card enthusiast. We spent a lot of time those first years going to car shows and swap meets. (I’ll share a photo with you later in the post of Larry’s baby with you.)

This first card combines the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491)

I love the way that the Brass Foil (153057) has been used for the gears and pulls out the foiling in the Designer Series Paper too. The combination of Bermuda Bay and Basic Black is quite striking in person.

And this next card uses the color theme from my husbands car in addition to some simple stamping which makes it a great choice if you are just building your stamping collection. Classic – the Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Real Red makes an impact.

The Geared Up Garage stamp set also has coordinating Garage Gears Dies (151812) which make it a favorite!

On a personal note, here is the photo I told you I’d share. Back when we were first married my husband was working on his 1957 Chevy that he got when he was in the Army. He hauled it all the way from California back to Georgia. Here is a snap shot of it.

He had just completed restoring it before we got married, so we recreated my parents wedding photo from 1958 with it. We’ve been married 33 years now, but it seems just like yesterday at times. I’m wearing my mother’s dress, with a corset and big wooden hoop under it. That was an experience!

Truly Tailored

Today’s treat and cards were all made using the True Gentlemen Suite of products found in the Occasions Catalog on page 45. I really am enjoying this suite with the masculine colors.

Here is a little treat item I made

It holds Merci chocolates of course. Not too much, but just enough to satisfy the sweet tooth.

Here is a tutorial for you if you’d like to make some to.
