Father’s Day {Super Hero Card} With How-To Directions

fathersday_super

This is such a fun card. Keeping with my trend of quick and easy Father’s Day cards, here is another one made with My Digital Studio download Because I’m the Dad. When I saw the “use the force” image, I envisioned the aqua blue and yellow glow of a light saber. That is how the colors for the card came about.

This is a hybrid card, because it uses digital images, as well as traditional card making techniques. It’s like the best of both worlds when you want to make a custom card or project. You can create exactly what you picture in your mind.

In order to make the banner, you will need to use the Flag Punch in My Digital Studio. These are the pieces you need:

Flag Punch (2 pieces), resized to fit your card; Square Punch (1) sized to fit inside the banner to cover up the yellow line down the middle; and Because I’m the Dad stamp image from My Digital Studio download (shown here in Coastal Cabana).

 

First, resize the flag punch to your desired size. Then, choose Black as your fill color. Choose Yellow as your Mat (size 3 setting shown here). You will have to rotate it 90 degrees to get it horizontal like this.

Next, copy your Flag Punch and paste a copy to your page. Choose “Flip” to make the flag copy look like a mirror image of the original. Align them as shown above. To “erase” the yellow line running down the middle, insert a Square Punch and resize it to fit just inside the yellow outline of the banner. Choose Black as the fill color.

Lastly, insert your stamp image and recolor it accordingly. I chose Coastal Cabana. Resize as needed and layer it on top of your banner.

Then, just print out the image on Whisper White card stock. Trim out the banner using scissors and bend/roll it slightly using your fingers to give it the wavy look.

The card base here is Basic Gray, layered with Whisper White and some Yellow printed Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper.

I attached the banner with 3 stampin dimensionals and added 3 Coastal Cabana stars made with a Star Punch.

Special Delivery–It’s a Boy

I made this card a while ago, while I was pregnant with my son, or very soon after he was born. I can’t remember July and August–it was all a blur. Two hours of sleep a night does that to your brain!

I can remember this: I used things from the new 2012-2013 Stampin UP catalog! The base is In Color Midnight Muse, a great navy blue and I’m not a navy blue person. To brighten things up, I used Pool Party card stock, another In Color, texturized with the Fancy Fan Letterpress plate. I inked up the plate with Versamark (you could also use Pool party ink) and then ran it through the Big Shot for some texture and pattern.

The stamp is from Special Delivery, a new hostess set. I inked up the boy silhouette with Midnight Muse ink and stamped it on Whisper White card stock. I layered it with Daffodil Delight and Pool Party circles.

Some of the other elements used on the card are Lattice Bigz Die, Summer Smooches DSP, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Daffodil Delight Stitched 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, and Whisper White 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

Birthday Blossoms

Another card I made with Betsy’s Blossoms, from the soon to be released catalog. It features a few new In Colors as well: Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. The colors are bold and bright, and the images are also bold and graphic, so I kept it pretty simple.

The base is Primrose Petals card stock, layered with Whisper White. I stamped the large blossom image in Gumball Green ink, which is a nice bright green. From the same stamp set, I used another flower image, this time stamped two times-once in Primrose Petals and once in Daffodil Delight. I cut out the center of the Primrose Petals flower and attached it to the center of the Daffodil Delight flower. I also cut in between each petal and flared them slightly.

The ribbon is 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain in Daffodil Delight. I tied it around the Whisper White layer and stamped “Happy Birthday” from Happiest Birthday Wishes in Primrose Petals ink.
