This month, the Kreators Blog Hop is all about grads and dads. I chose to feature Stampin’ Up’s! new 2019-2020 stamp set, A Good Man. It’s perfect for Father’s Day cards, and I love the artistically sketched images.
I began by stamping the father and son in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I colored their skin with an Ivory Stampin’ Blend, and the son’s hair with Light Crumb Cake. Rather than continue with Stampin’ Blends, I decided to do some “paper-piecing.”
I stamped and fussy cut their pants and shirts from four different scraps of Designer Series Paper, and glued them in place. I enjoy this “paper-piecing” technique, because it brings back wonderful, childhood, memories of playing with paper dolls.
Next, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die for cutting, and added a 1/16″ border of Soft Suede Cardstock.
For the background, I used the Corrugated Embossing Folder on a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, and layered this on a Seaside Spray card base. This blue is gorgeous, and just might be my favorite, new, In Color.
Before gluing the corrugated layer to the card base, I tied some Old Olive Linen Thread around the bottom.
The sentiment, “I grew up loved,” was stamped in Soft Suede Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with a Stitched Nested Label Die. “Thanks to you” is on the inside, along with two hearts, also in A Good Man stamp set.
The last step was decorating the envelope flap with retired DSP, Tranquil Textures.
Here are two more cards I made, using A Good Man stamp set.
