Category: Father’s Day


Father’s Day is coming up quickly so I decided to create one last card for Dad that uses the Geared Up Garage stamp set and matching dies.

I stepped out of my “zone” a bit and used a Stampin’ Sponge to add a little grunge.  Not something I usually do for sure!

Here’s the product list for today’s card.



Happy Stamping!


Have you used the Country Livin’ stamp set lately?  I haven’t used it in quite a while so brought it out to create today’s “Best Dad” card.

It’s a little early for Father’s Day but it never hurts to get ready in lots of time.  I’ve really been focussing on improving my colouring skills with the Stampin’ Blends and have extremely happy with the way this image turned out.  The guitar was stamped first and then I masked it with a post-it note, added the boots and started colouring.

The touch of Balmy Blue plaid was added to play along with The Paper Players Theme challenge for this week.  Doesn’t it look great with the various shades of brown?

Happy Stamping to you!


It’s Friday and over the weekend my husband will be in his garage working on vehicles.  So, why not get a really early jump on a Father’s Day card!

This card was inspired by the great layout from Freshly Made Sketches with all of those gears and nuts and bolts!  I stamped over the Basic Gray and Crushed Curry with the “smear” stamp using Sahara Sand ink,  to give the illusion of grease just to add a bit more interest.  The same was done over the greeting tab – why not make it look a little like it just came out of the garage!

Check out this great sketch.

Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!


Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner.  I was creating cards like crazy for Father’s Day but always with an eye to how those cards can be used for another occasion. So this card can definitely be used as a birthday card.

All that was used here was our Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and a couple of pieces of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  One for the mat and the other for the guitar!  I stamped the background using Touches of Texture stamp set and of course, the guitar comes from Country Livin’ stamp set.

Here’s the list of products for you.

Have a fun Monday and Happy Stamping!


Hi there and welcome!  This week I’m going to “case” (copy and share everything) a few of the beautiful cards that you can find in the Annual Catalogue.  This is great if you are stuck for ideas and I’m starting off with this picture perfect platypus from the Postcard Pals stamp set.

You can find this cutie-pie on page 48 of the catalogue and you will notice that my version isn’t exactly as show but close.  This guy is coloured with our Stampin’ Blends combos with are perfect for adding shading in all the right places.  Because these blends are alcohol based make sure to stamp the image first with our classic inks(water based) so your outline doesn’t smear.

You will notice that I used the Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon – in order to get the Pool Party colour, I used the Stampin’ Blend to add colour.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.
