Happy Friday!! Well, it's been a while, but I am back today with a Father's Day card for Fabulous Friday today over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I've had a very busy last couple of weeks as my oldest daughter graduated from high school. It was bittersweet seeing my little girl blossom into a motivated young lady ready to begin college in the Fall at George Mason University.
And when decorating a graduation cap, it sure is easy when you have plenty of great Stampin' Up! products to use like card stock, ribbon, glimmer paper and Big Shot dies!! George Mason's colors are green and gold - I think it turned out great and we were able to easily Amanda in the line because of the glitter under the bright lights!!
I am so happy that the From Land to Sea stamp set didn't retire as I am mourning the retirement of By the Tide. I love using realistic nature images for masculine cards and this marlin certainly looks masculine enough, doesn't it?! I must say that this Dapper Denim is currently my favorite new In Color... I am sure that will change, but this is such a warm blue and I love it! It pairs perfectly with very vanilla and crumb cake. I colored in my fish with sahara sand and then added some glimmer with my Wink of Stella clear glimmer brush, although it is hard to see in the photo. It looks pretty amazing in real life!
Here is one more view of my card. For even more Father's Day-themed card ideas and inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
