Father's Day Cards

A couple of Father's Day card ideas for you:
This one features some Hodge Podge Hardware.  A bit of hardware always helps to create a bit of a masculine feel to the card.  

I have used the Stamp'n'Write Markers on the Father's Day stamp.

The patterned paper is from the Spring Showers Designer Series paper.  It is not pictured in the catalogue but is still available for purchase.

Stamps: Occasional Greetings
Inks: Sahara Sand and So Saffron markers
Paper: Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Whisper White, Spring Showers
Accessories: Hodge Podge Hardware
Tools: Paper piercer (to make holes for the brads)

This card is one I have been using as a make and take at my workshops this month.

Again I have used patterned paper on this card.

This time I did not use markers on the stamp.  There is no marker for Wild Wasabi so instead I had people stamp on 3 separate pieces of Whisper White in Wild Wasabi, More Mustard and Real Red ink.  Then they cut them up and layered them together in the colour combination they liked best.  In this case, I kept the Real Red image whole and layered the More Mustard and Wild Wasabi pieces onto it.

Stamps: Occasional Greetings, Sanded background
Inks: Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Real Red
Papers: Wild Wasabi, More Mustard, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, East Coast Prep DS Paper, Whisper White
Accessories: Real Red brads, dimensionals
Tools: Word Window punch, paper piercer to make holes for brads
