Simon Says Stamp....Father's Day or Masculine card....I {Heart} My Daddy!


Good morning stampin' friends and Happy Hump day! Today I'm sharing the card that I made for the fun challenge that we have this week over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog! This week the DT is featuring Tim Holtz products and the challenge is to make a Father's Day card or a Masculine card! We would love to see what you create with your Tim Holtz products but it is not a requirement of the challenge.

As usual, Heidi, is offering up a fabulous $50.00 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp Superstore. I know you won't have any trouble spending the voucher in the superstore as it is full of gorgeous stamps and crafty supplies! I hope you get some time to make a Father's day or Masculine card and join us for the challenge!

For my card this week I used BasicGrey 6x6 Marjorline papers and this super cute Magnolia stamp called Brother and Sister from the Cozy Family collection. I decided to use this stamp as I thought that Tilda and Edwin could represent my kids, Hannah and Kieran and they can give this card to their Dad for Father's day! I'm so thankful that Chris is such an amazing and involved Father and a wonderful Hubby too...we are so lucky to have him!
So....back to my card....I stamped the papers with my Kelly Panacci stitching stamps with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress ink and inked all the edges of the papers with Vintage Photo Distress ink with my Ranger blending tool and foam pads. I LOVE the blending tool and foam pads and I LOVE  my Craft Spinner that I bought at Simon Says stamp Superstore to store them. I coloured Tilda and Edwin with my Copics and cut the image out with my Circle Netsies and then used a script stamp from a Tim Hotlz stamp set called Urban Grunge and stamped it with Tea Dye Distress ink around the edges of the image.  I also used my My Favorite Things Simply Scalloped border die. The sentiment is 2 different Melissa France rub-ons that I cut up and combined to make the perfect sentiment for my card. I added a stitched BasicGrey brad and then a few half pearls here and there.  

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! I really hope you can join us and I'm looking forward to see all you great Father's day or masculine cards! Also, swing by the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see all the gorgeous cards that the DT have made to inspire you....then join us!!!!

Have a stampin' great day!

Your bordering is lovely below the checked ribbon (lovelythe way it picks up on the shecked design in the pale patterned paper) & I really like that text stamped edging -very effective. I like the way that brad echoes the paper too.
