Hats Off to You!

Hello Stamping Friends,

It's Friday. Yippee! Any great plans for this weekend? We are doing a Purplestride walk tomorrow in memory of our dear friend Leo who passed away in September from pancreatic cancer. We miss him so much. He was such a great guy who was always the life of the party. He was a kind, compassionate, caring friend. Everyone loved Leo, young and old. Surprisingly, that's the only thing on the agenda. I'm looking forward to an otherwise relaxing weekend.

Well, being that it's Friday, that means time for a posting from the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are sharing Father's Day card ideas with you since Father's Day is next weekend and you will probably want to start working on your Father's Day cards this week.

I absolutely love how this card turned out. It is super quick and easy to make but looks so great when finished. I love hats and shoes so this card is definitely me. To create this card you just stamp the entire layer and it looks like printed paper when you are finished. Do a row of hats (it's actually 2 rows because the stamp has 6 hats on it, 2 rows of 3) and then a row of shoes. When stamping the shoes do one pair tips facing up and then alternate tips facing down. Adds a fun look instead of them all facing one way. Then stamp another row of hats. Skip a little space and stamp the second row of shoes at the bottom of the paper leaving a white space. The white space is covered by the designer paper and the greeting.

Can you guess which designer paper was used? I bet you would have never thought to use the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series paper for a masculine card. Well, that's exactly what I used. The back of many sheets is just black and white so they can easily be used on a masculine card. Perfect for everyone.

This card is great because it went right back to the basics: stamps, ink and paper. It's great to have all the fun accessories but sometimes you just want to keep it simple or you don't have enough time to pull out all your fun toys. This card allows you to see that you can create beautiful cards with minimal effort and supplies.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping to see more Father's Day's card.
