(2021 c035) Father’s Day


Father’s Day cards for my Husband and boys.


I stamped the tree from Altenew In My Thoughts  with my Misti using Distress Inks by Ranger , then I stamped again with Versamark Ink   and heat embossed with Clear  Ranger Embossing Powder in order to resist ink when coloring the backgrounds.

I used the  Gel Press 5×7 from Hobby Lobby and Distress Inks by Ranger to create the land and sky. For the sky I used Hero Arts Starry Night Brushstroke Bold Print  to stamp off ink from the press on the first and last cards. On the 2nd & 3rd card I then used the ink on the stamp to stamp on the background. Jennifer McGuire has a great video on this technique using the Gel Press to create backgrounds, check it out.

The window frame was cut with Mama Elephant Window Cover Creative Cuts then I stamped with Taylored Expressions Woodgrain Background Stamp .
