Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have not been feeling well and I just took the time off my blog. BUT … I’m back today with a new card from an wonderful new stamp set; A Good Man!
I was thrilled to see the “masculine” stamp sets carry over from the Occasions Catalog and to find this one in the new catalog along side them. If you haven’t checked it out yet, here is a glimpse of the stamp set ….
You will find “A Good Man” on page 147. Today’s card is all about being a good dad, perfect for the upcoming Father’s Day holiday. This simple card will be easy for you to recreate. I have a list of steps listed below on how I assembled it …
I actually began by choosing a designer paper and I liked the color scheme of the Come Sail Away Designer Series paper. It has a wonderful array of masculine colors; Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Suede.
The next step was to determine the size I wanted to stamp (5-1/2″ x 2-3/4″) this size fit my stamped images nicely and gave me room to add a nice embellishment. I used the twine from the Sail Away product suite. I used Night of Navy to “pop” my stamped images … I used scrap pieces and trimmed them off at 5-1/2″ to align with the stamped image. You could do the same with the designer paper, as this is a great paper saving technique. The assembly was then mounted onto the Balmy Blue and then the Sahara Sand base.
That’s it … simple! Oh yes, I forgot to mention that when I stamped the man and child, I used the Aqua Painter right after I stamped the image to pull a little color out and create a focal point that draws your eye to the stamped image. It was stamped in Night of Navy.
Thanks for hanging out till I got back!! Be sure to stop back tomorrow, I have another great card using the stamp set “A Good Man”. It’s a step up from today’s card, and I’m sure you’ll love it.
Have an awesome day … It’s Monday!! See you tomorrow.
