Some Father's Day Card Creations

I started a little card shop this past week (you can see it here). One of my friends requested some Father's Day cards, so I got right on it (ahhh, the joys of unemployment!). Well, I felt that this would be the perfect opportunity to go check out the local scrapbook store that is here (The Memory Bank). I figured out quickly that if you want to buy stamps for a special holiday, you better not wait until the last minute -- they were out of most "Father's Day" stuff. So, after working my way around the store twice, I decided to bite the bullet...that's right, I bought clear stamps. I love the look of the stamps, but had a horrible time getting a good image (I did run an eraser over the stamp first before I inked it, but it didn't seem to help). However, as many of you know, the good thing about clear is that you can see where you stamped and "fix" the image. So here are a few cards I made:

This is the first one I made. Jon was disappointed that I sold it, so I made another one for him to send to his dad that is somewhat similar.

The stamp set is from Tim Holtz and is called The Journey.

The next two I made using some Soft Spoken stickers.

  1. Nice father's day cards! About the clear stamps, sometimes if I'm using pigment ink (instead of chalk ink) I'd stamp first in VersaMark and then in the pigment pad, keeps the ink from pooling up and gives you a more crisp image...

  2. katy, you do wonderful "dad" cards!! me, not so much:) i'm off to thank karen for that great tip!

  3. Thanks for the tip about the VersaMark and clear stamps!! I've been using StazOn for my clear stamps and I absolutely hate having to do that in order to get a good print.

    Katy--your cards are beautiful!! !

  4. Those are super Father's Day cards!
