Just wanted to give a big shout out to my husband! Eve and I both made him Father’s Day cards. I’ll show you hers first. She was very creative, and used a black Stampin’ Write marker to ink up only the tools on two of the stamp sets she used, so the words would only show up once. Yes, she is only 6, but she is a very accomplished stamper. She has been stamping for 2/3 of her life, after all!


Stamps: Totally Tools, And Many Mower
Ink: Basic Black, Brocade Blue, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery
Paper: Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Muirfield Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Styled Silver Hodge Podge Hardware, Designer Label Punch

Below is the card that I made Steve. Both Eve and I really liked how the “Happy Father’s Day”  fit so nicely into the Designer Label punch and its coordinating silver frame. Remember, this versatile set, And Many Mower, will not be available after June 30th!

Happy Father’s Day to my dad! I am so excited to be able to celebrate with him this year. And I can’t wait to see the look on hos face when he opens his present. (You remember, the big framed tree I showed you.) I decided to make a card that matched! I even used some of the leftover background paper! This was a quick and easy card, and I am  thrilled with how it came out! The “Happy Father’s Day” saying is from the set And Many Mower, which will not be available any more in a week!

My dad is big-time into family history and genealogy. It is his passion, and find relatives and connecting them is so much more than a hobby to him. When I saw this project on my Stampin’ Up demonstrator website, I knew that I just had to make one for him for Father’s Day. He was adamant that we take a family picture when we were all there for Passover. I’m so glad that he did, because it gave me the perfect family picture to use! I am so impressed with how this came out, and it took me less than an hour to make! I can’t wait to give it to him!


Stamps: Lovely Letters, Simple Serif Alphabet & Numbers
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Urban Garden Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Small Chocolate Thoughts & Prayers Tree (Decor Elements), Stamp-a-ma-Jig, 14″x 18″ frame

To create the background, I used both 12″ x 12″ sheets of the same Kiwi Kiss pattern from the Urban Garden Designer Series Paper pack. I used the 14″ x 18″ paper insert in the frame as my guide, and glued the patterened paper to it. I left one sheet 12″ x 12″. I cut three pieces off of the  second sheet — one 6″ x 12″, one 2″ x 12″, and one 2″ x 6″. I pieced these together, and you can’t really see seams unless you get relly close to it!

I was so excited when I saw this stamp set in the mini catalog! My in-laws are big golfers and I knew I just had to have this adorable golfer to make cards for them! This style of card is called a gate-fold, because, well, it opens up in the middle like a gate! This is one of the “fun folds” we’re going to be making at my fun folds class next Thursday in Ashby. Let me know if you are in the area, I’d love for you to come!

Now that Mother’s Day is over, I’m switching modes and gearing up for Father’s Day with some masculine cards. Today’s Mojo Monday sketch lends it self perfectly to this.


I left the scalloped edge off the bottom to make it a little more masculine. I also thought about putting glitter on the beer foam, but wasn’t sure if that would take away from the manliness of the card, so I left it off. This would be great for a birthday or Father’s Day.
