Father’s Day Card

I have a fun Father’s Day card to share with you today.  I really was excited to see the Day for Dad C1645 stamp set.

Day for DadI was so excited to see that it has a stamp with the word Pop.  My dad goes by Pop now that he is a grandfather so it is so fitting for him. Here is the card I designed for him.

The other three are designed using the AWESOME  Happy Times paper pack.  Which is available this month only for Free with any $60 qualifying purchase.

Happy Father’s Day!

For the past three years for Father’s Day,  I have assisted my son in creating a canvas which features his hand prints and a fun saying for his dad.  Here are the three I have done in the past.Father's day gifts ~ kids handprint gifts ~ catscrapbooking.com ca

So I could not drop the ball this year.  I saw a design on Pinterest using a footprint incorporated into a guitar. Since Mike is a drummer and can play guitar, I knew this would be perfect.  So here is our version:

Father's Day ~ dad you rock ~ kids footprint ~ fathers day gift ~ catscrapbooking.comI used my Silhouette to cut the guitar strings, notes and Dad you Rock using vinyl.  I am very happy the way this turned out.  I am fairly certain my husband will feel the same.  Gavin was happy with the way it looks and can’t wait to say “surprise”.

Technique Blog Hop ~ Call for Backup

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

11230027_10152869466882934_6533465798642750460_n

This month we are featuring a technique called ~ Call for Backup which can be found on page 180 of the Annual Inspirations Idea book.  This technique is real simple as anytime you use a punch or even use a cricut to cut out a pattern you can back it with a different color, shimmer trim or pattern paper. This month we have 10 consultants featuring artwork using this technique so you will definitely be inspired.  If you just hopped onto my blog or arrived from WENDY KESSLER’s Blog then you are in the right place.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

I needed to create a father’s day card for my dad so I though I would incorporate this technique into my card. I love the new The Best Dad Ever A1173 stamp set and knew it would be perfect with the Jackson paper pack.

Father’s Day Frame

Okay, I am taking another little break from my major undertaking of house cleaning for our garage sale.  I have basically completed my craft room, all the baby stuff and the kitchen.   I now only have a few more rooms to go….

Since Father’s day is going to be sneaking up on us pretty quickly I actually got a jump on things this year.  I had purchased the Sizzix accordion frame back in November and of course it has just sat on the shelf.  I decided it was time to use it or lose it so to speak.  I realized it would work very well as a Father’s Day gift.

Father's day frame front ~catscrapbooking.com

This is what it will look like when you give it to your father.  You will pull the twine on the right side and it will open to be a cool stand alone element which will fit a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch photo.  You dad/father can then proudly display this on their desk.

Here is a close up of two of the panels to show the stamping which crated a unique patten paper.

Father's day frame detail

To create this look I used the tools from the You’re the Best stamp set C1571 and used second generation stamping with Chocolate ink on Colonial white paper.  If you have never heard of second generation stamping what you do is ink up you stamp like you would normally do then stamp it the first time on a scratch sheet of paper and then stamp it a second time on your actual paper.   The effect is a softer more subtle stamped image.

For this project I used my Silhouette to cut the majority of the images.  I did use the Cricut to cut the banners on the cover.

Products used for this project:

  • Timberline paper pack X1782B
  • Twilight cardstock X5666
  • Colonial White cardstock 1388
  • Chocolate cardstock  X5643
  • Brown and Tan Glitter Paper Z1830
  • Chocolate Ink Z2111
  • Twilight Ink Z2160
  • You’re the Best Stamp set C1571
  • Baker’s twine
  • Brown twine (my stash)

Okay back to my Spring Cleaning….

Happy Crafting!

Father’s day gift

I knew as soon as I saw the Buzz & Bumble paper that this would make a great Father’s Day gift.  I had been wanting to design another frame so this would be perfect.  Unfortunately it is hard to crate something and keep it a secret from my husband since he often pops into the craft room.  So he got one of his Father’s day gifts early….

Fathers day frame

To create this frame I used the My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797, Buzz & Bumble paper pack X7164B, Honeycomb stamp set C1537,  and Burlap ribbon Z1760.  I used the spellbinders tear drop die to make the rosette. I used my Silhouette to cut the letters and hexagons.

Hope you enjoy~  Cat

Father’s Day Card

I was inspired by a side step card I saw on Pinterest after last year’s father’s day. I knew it was a card I needed to emulate.

Fathers day card 3 - Version 2

Fathers day card 1 - Version 2

For this card I used my Silhouette to cut the tools.  I used the Perfect Fit – Dad stamp set for the sentiment. I know my dad who is a true DIY guy is gong to be thrilled with this card.
