It’s time to be thinking about making your handmade Father’s Day Cards! Lucky for you, Stampin’ Up! has the perfect Bundle to make it easy! Newsletter subscribers learned to make a Mother’s Day Card last month using the Hello Thinlits and Crazy about You Stamp Set Bundle. You can see that card plus a video on tips for using the Hello Thinlits in this post: Video Tips.
Here’s the Father’s Day version. Don’t you just love the Blackberry Bliss “happy” inside the cut-out on the Lost Lagoon Layer? What an awesome effect!
If you love to give handmade cards to friends and family for any occasion that comes up, the Hello Thinlits and Crazy about You Bundle from the Occasions Catalog is a must-have set! I know you like to make the most of your stamping dollars, so getting 15% off on a Bundle always makes paper crafters happy! But look at all the words in the Crazy about You stamp set. Combined with the words in the Hello Thinlits set, you’ll have a great selection of sentiments for your cardmaking projects!
In this close-up of the front of the card, you can see how easy it is to create some interesting texture with a couple of stamps.
The background stamp on the Lost Lagoon layer is from a new set in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, called “You’ve Got This.” The Sahara Sand layer that you can see through the die-cut “happy” is from an old favorite, Gorgeous Grunge. I could have left that layer plain, but you know how I am, always looking for ways to create more texture and interest in my handmade cards! The fine lines gave just the right amount, without overdoing it, don’t you think?
Here’s a little sneak peek of the stamp from “You’ve Got This.”
Here’s the rest of the set
I’ll be posting a card with the flower done in watercolors soon. Aren’t those sentiments cool? What a great set for letting your loved ones know how much you care! Of course you can’t purchase this set until the 2015 Annual Catalog goes live on June 2nd. But you can drool a little when you get your catalog! It’s on its way to Stamping Madly customers already. Meanwhile if you haven’t purchased the Crazy about You Bundle yet, be sure to order it today!
