Father's Day Six Pack

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.

Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.

This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.

I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

Baseball Cap Treat Holder

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to today's edition of Grads & Dads Week.  You can't think of summer without take me out to the ball game. I know, now you will have that song playing in your head. LOL Today, we have an alternative to yesterday's post. If your spouse, Dad, significant other is a baseball fan, then this is for them. A baseball cap treat holder. I scoured the internet for ideas. Most of the templates that are offered are for the baseball cap only and are quite small. I did find a few like this but they were smaller and for a fee. I took one look at the Window Box Thinlits and came up with my own size pattern. I hope you will give this a try.

Seeing how I live in Michigan, I had to make a Detroit Tigers colored cap. I hope you give this a try!!!

Welcome to Grads & Dads!!!

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Welcome to Grads & Dads week here on my blog. The first item is a card but not a card--more like a 3D project.

DSCN0049

The little graduation hats are made with Stampin' Up!Window Box Thinlits. You cut out two of the Window Box Thinlits. You put together just like the directions, cutting off each score "end" on only one of the diecuts as directed. You will also need to cut off the 3 tabs for the top of the box (the ones with X's)

DSCN0051

You then cut 2 pieces of cardstock, in this case Pacific Point. Cut one 4-1/4" x 4"1/4" and one 3-3/4" x 3-3/4".  

Glue the bigger piece on top of the top of the Window Box Thinlits diecut. You will need to score the other piece. Lining the point at 1-3/4" score (as in the picture). On the opposite side, line the point at 1-1/4" and score (not pictured).

DSCN0018

DSCN0033

 

Fold back the larger scored corner and glue down. Place tear and tape where shown.

DSCN0034

Line up with the Window Box Thinlits diecut and adhere down. Die cut one "congrats" from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Adhere across the "pocket" inside.

DSCN0041

Wind twine around to make tassle. Adhere on top with a  Metal Rimmed Pearl. Place money in "pocket." 

I looked for graduation mints to put in  but couldn't find any so I improvised with IceBreaker Mints. I hope you will give this a try!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a cute little 3D for Father's Day. Hope to see you!!!

Track Stars

Hi Stampers,

Our two oldest grandchildren are in track and field. Last week at one of their meets, Connor (our oldest grandson) had a best personal record of 37 foot, 2 inches in the shotput!!! Of course, I had to make cards to send them. It looks a little juvenile but I really had to rack my brain for this one. The snowball from the retired stamp set Snow Much Fun was perfect for a shotput. I made a spinner card to look like he was throwing it.

DSCN0080

Here he is in real life:

Connor2

Our other grandson, Logan, is a runner. I swear he has the longest legs. He is only in 8th grade and is already 6'3"!!!! I didn't have any stamps to use on his card so I got out some old Sizzix dies I had, Stampin' Up! framelits and went with it.

It was in the mid-70's today and gorgeous!! Not bad for Michigan!!! Afterwards we went outside and made stepping stones. That was so much fun!!!

Here I am helping our youngest grandson Barrett aka Bear make his:

I even got to come home and stamp a little. All in all, a PERFECT MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Thank you for stopping by!!

 


Garden Workbench & Card!

Hi Stampers,

Today's Craft Project Central project is designed by Sandy Mott.  If you love gardening, or have a friend/relative who gardens, they would love receiving this adorable workbench and matching card. The workbench features potted plants and flowers, complete with gardening tools, gloves, and mud boots. The card matches the workbench, and as all gardeners know, a gift from the garden is a work of HEART. This project fits the bill. The workbench is a cinch to put together. The pots, plants, and tools are all hand cut, but oh so worth the effort!
