Hi There! Hope you are all having a great weekend :) I have a Father's Day gift set to share that I made for my dear husband Scott. Not only is he the BEST husband but he has been the BEST step-dad over the past 10 years to my children & of course, the BEST dad to my step-children :) He is the biggest supporter of my papercrafting hobby & would not be satisfied unless he received a homespun creation of sorts :)Scott has an enormous sweet tooth & one of his favorite candy is from See's - Victorian toffee. See's is now only offering the Victorian toffee during the Christmas Holiday season so the toffee-ettes are the next best thing! I made this card to accompany the gift ensemble.For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's awesome Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #3, WMSC3. The Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge site is now in full swing in week #3 already! If you are looking for some great inspiration & fun, be sure to check it out for yourself.
I inked up one of the images from the WM Very Vintage Labels No. 4 set, stamped it on a scrap of cork-board left over from one of my step-daughter's school projects, then simply placed a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-190 Labels Four die template over the cork-board, adhered in place then ran it through my Wizard™. Scott will surely get a chuckle out of this recycled cork-board as I am sure it will jog his memory of making Meri's project :)
I used an oldie but goldie Spellbinders™ alphabet set (L2-01 Vintage U/N/P) paired with Spellbinders™ Copper Premium Craft Foil to cut the letters that spell DAD. I adhered those letters on a multi-layered oval frame. I pulled out my Copic airbrush system & sprayed the smaller oval for a soft look then layered that on top of an oval cut from Copper Premium Craft Foil with a S4-138 Petite Ovals LG die template.
If you click & enlarge the above photo, you can get a better look of the embossed & airbrushed decorative top that I made using I2-1009 Flourish Impressabilities™ template & a S4-117 Petite Scalloped Circles SM die template. In case you haven't seen my tutorial on how to do this, please feel free to click HERE.I made this little tag combining a few images from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy & Very Vintage Labels No. 4 stamp sets.
Happy Father's Day to ALL Father's out there :)
That's all for today - Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!
