Father's Day Cards

I've had some suggestions on fixing the problems I have been having with blogger so we will see if we can get this post to work better. ADDED NOTE - As you can see not all the problems have been fixed.  Now I can get my pictures in the right place but it is now highlighting words it believes are spelt wrong.  Grrrr - wish I had never updated it.

I recently went to a couple of workshops my friend Verna was giving at her store Memory Lane.  The workshops were for making masculine cards for Father's Day or a man's birthday. We used Rosewood Stamps which are made here in Ontario, Canada.  Verna has started selling these stamps in her store and I just love them.

Here are the first two cards I made.

First we stamped the images on the cardstock and then using Distress Ink and our blending tool we colored in the card.  I goofed on the first card because I stamped the image on the textured side of the cardstock which didn't give me a very clear image so made sure to use the smooth side on the second one.  We used a scalloped shapeabilities die and the cuttlebug to cut out a section of the first card and then mounted that section inside the card.  For the second card we just cut the stamped and colored cardstock into an oval shape and along with a bit larger oval gold glossy



The last card was made using gold glossy cardstock and three different colored alcohol inks to make the rectangle and diamonds. I haven 't had much practice using alcohol inks so it was great to give them a try and just loved how it turned out. I'm going to give this card to my husband on Father's Day.  He collects duck decoys so I hope he will love the card. 


I hope you like all the cards.
