Hi, Hi friends! I hope this Thursday finds you enjoying sunshine and happiness. Here in central California we are poised to hit just shy of 100* today! We be sizzling in this early heat wave!
Today, I am sharing with you 5 quick and simple cards using fun masculine themed products from Sweet Stamp Shop. Dad Bear and Papa Bear are new releases out today, illustrated by Ann of Spotgirl Design. Dad’s Tool Box & Dies and the Outline Lower Alpha are both already currently released but mix and match with the new sets perfectly.
This first card, “Dad Fixes Everything,” is Copic colored with a Distress Ink background in Salty Ocean. It is a combo of the Papa Bear and Dad’s Tool Box stamp sets.
“I’m a Tool” features the Dad’s Tool Box and dies, and is colored with Copic markers. The red thread is a super fun embellishment adhered with a standard tape runner. A silver Gelly Roll Pen gives the tools a metallic feel.
“Best Grand Paw” is also Copic colored and utilizes the Papa Bear stamp set. This background is ink blended with the new Distress Oxide inks. They blend like buttah! I used Faded Jeans and Broken China. I also misted a paw print with water and stamped it subtly along the right.
“Dad, Dad, Dad” is a combo of Dad’s Tool Box and Dad Bear. He too, is Copic colored, this time using pointillism for a fur effect. The multicolor ink across the bottom provides a youthful feel to the card.
“I Love You, Dad” is again Copic colored. Dad Bear and the Outline Lower Alpha have been employed here. The rainbow style of this card makes it perfect for dad from the youngest members of the family.
