I'm so honored to be joining the Altenew Blog Hop for Celebrating Parents Card Drive.
If you came from Karin's blog, then you are on a right path, or you can just start your hops at Altenew Blog.
Today we are showcasing Best Dad Stamp Set and I'm sharing two cards for it and one more card featuring another set.
Prior to getting started, I had planned to make two cards with different moods : one with a chalk board background for masculine mood and the other with white background for lovely mood for us daughters who give their cards to dads.
To begin my first card, I trimmed a black card stock into 4.125×5.375 inch, heat embossed sentiments from Best Dad Stamp Set with white embossing powder, then blended white dye ink around the edges of panel.
I stamped all the images of Best Dad Stamp Set on a copic friendly paper, colored them with copic markers, and cut them all using the coordinating dies. Next, I adhered them onto the panel as shown below.
I foam mounted the panel onto a kraft card base, glued some clear sparkling sequins mix and 3mm clear sparkling sequins and finished off the card.
For my second card, I simply adhered stamped images onto a heavy weight white card base using foam tapes.
I added gray shades under the images using copic markers, too. To maintain clean look, I added enamel dots and finished off the card.
Did you enjoy my two Dad's cards?
Actually this was my first trial of chalk board effect card, and I loved what it turned out. Hope you will like them, too.
After I finished the two, I decided to make Mom's card as well, so I picked Penned Rose set from my Altenew stash. I heat embossed blossoms and leaves on watercolor paper, then did watetcoloring using my Daniel Smith Watercolor inks, then I simply fussy cut the images.
To compose a card, I also used Doodled Lace Cover Die, Precious Moments, Simple Alpha Die Set from Altenew. I finished off by adding various sequins here and there.
