For today’s post I decided to look at the stash, and I found an older stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh, and the sentiment was perfect for a graduation card! But how to make a Father’s Day card with the same stamp. After some thinking, I decided to use one of the stamps to create my own background, inspired by my crafting bestie, Crystal. She’s the queen of CAS cards and the reason I am back in the blogging world!
I couldn’t decide on a color palette so went with a rainbow, rainbows are always a good idea. For the graduation card, I used the sentiment, ‘let your dreams soar’, don’t you think its perfect? I colored the kites with my chameleon dual tone pencils, with some simple shading like yesterday’s post. I die cut them using the coordinating dies. To create the background I used a MFT cloud stencil and some distress oxide in salty ocean. I stamped the sentiment, and adhered the strings with some tape adhesive and the kites with some 3M tape to add some dimension.
For the second card, you can use a ‘happy father’s day’ sentiment, but I used a happy birthday die as I told I mentioned previously I don’t need anymore of those cards! But wanted to continue sharing some masculine card ideas! I stamped the sentiment in versafine Black onyx ink, and covered it with some ranger halographic embossing powder (this time I used the right one!), then I used the solid kite image from the set to repeatedly stamp a background in versamark ink and covered it with the same embossing powder. Once heat set, I ink blended with some distress oxides, and created the rainbow. The card looked a little plain to me, so I added some party mix jewels from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the cards!
