Fathers Day card number 7. This card has lots of dry embossing on the background mat, the white circles and the die cut letters, which is not obvious in the photo.

this is the 6th Fathers day card I have made for Family and friends, this one was cased from our own Paula Dobson here mine is slightly different. Thanks for sharing Paula you're a star! This is a cool technique using the dots and stripes decorative masks.

This another version of my previous post same colours, same stamp set, but a different image, I prefer the first one I did. I used whisper white and basic black card stock, sponging was pumpkin pie and real red and the Lovely as a Tree image was stamped with Momento black.

I love this card, that I cased from Heather Telford on Pinterest Heather has used another tree stamp and hers is a Thank You card. I used whisper white and basic black card stock, sponging was pumpkin pie and real red and the Lovely as a Tree image was stamped with Momento black, love using this stamp pad.

This is a photo of my MIL who is now 84 years old, she asked me to; "pretty it up" I would have preferred to crop the photo down a bit, however she wanted it to stay this size. I have used Afternoon Picnic DSP, early espresso and very vanilla cardstock, Tea Lace paper doilies, Spiral flower die, pansy, blossom and petite petals punches, crochet trim, organza ribbon, 5/8 flower trim, antique brads, very vintage buttons and vintage faceted buttons.

This is the first time I have used the Chalk board technique and I'm reasonably happy with the outcome, although I prefer more colour on my cards. The card base is crumb cake with a black mat and the "Traveler" and "Open Sea" stamp sets, the sentiment is from the "Best Dad Ever" set.

I used three of the new "In Colours" Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow & Hello Honey, for this Fathers Day card as well as the new Dots and Stripes decorative masks. The sentiment is from the Just Sayin' stamp set and framelits, while the inside says Happy Fathers Day. A little washi tape to finish off.

I found this gorgeous card on Pinterest created by Narelle Farrugia Here I have changed the card a little but still love the end result. Thanks for sharing Narelle. This is my 2nd Fathers Day card for this year so far, I have 9 to make in total!! I wonder who will get sick of them first me or "you"?
The first of many Fathers day cards I have been requested to make. Coloured using the blendabilities, such a great finish to our colouring when using the blendies, no harsh strokes showing up. I sponged the background and matted the stamped image on whisper white, lost lagoon and black cardstock, the base card was also lost lagoon. The stamp is from the Countryside stamp set.
