{To a Classic} Birthday Card for Dads

This is a card I made for my father in law’s birthday. It uses the stamp set To a Classic. The card base is chocolate chip card stock. layered with Very Vanilla and Elegant Soiree DSP in this striped pattern.

I stamped the images in chocolate chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The car and the DAD circles were stamped again on Very Vanilla scrap, cut out and adhered to the base image with stampin dimensionals. The car was colored in with Baja Breeze marker and then topped with Crystal Effects.

Around the edges of the stamped layer, I sponged some chocolate chip ink, then matted it onto chocolate chip card stock.

For a fun accent, I stamped the speedometer on Very Vanilla with chocolate chip ink, punched out the circles and matted them on Baja Breeze card stock sponged with chocolate chip ink. Then, I used a Game Spinner arrow for the center of the speedometer, and of course I put it all the way to 100 mph!

For Dads

Although this card was for Father’s Day, it can be used for Dad’s Birthday or any other special occasion. Since it was for my husband, I went with his favorite colors: Green and Blue (well he really likes green, but I added some Indigo in there for good measure).

The card base is new In Color Lucky Limeade (available July 1st), layered with Island Indigo (another new In Color) and Nursery Suite DSP in the Old Olive/White combo.

Across the front, I took a strip of Island Indigo and wrapped Twill Tape around it. Then, using the cropadile, I added some pewter colored Jumbo Eyelets to either side.

In the center, I used Take a Spin and inked up the stamp once with Lucky Limeade and another time with Island Indigo ink. Then I stamped it each time onto Whisper White and punched out the Limeade image’s inner circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and hand cut the Indigo image’s outer circle very close to the stamped image with scissors. I added in a Game Spinner Hand and then popped up the smaller circle with stampin dimensionals. Finally, it was all layered onto Daffodil Delight card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment at the bottom is from To a Classic, stamped with Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Markers. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then layered it onto Island Indigo Modern Label Punch. That is also up on stampin dimensionals.

“Birthday Wishes” Game Spinner Card

I think this Take a Spin stamp set is perfect for making birthday cards. Young or old, anyone would enjoy getting this type of card and spinning it over and over again. I know I do it when I’m making the cards!

The card base is So Saffron, layered with Chocolate Chip cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then, I used Nursery Suite Specialty DSP in the So Saffron/White pattern cut to 3 3/4″ x 3″. Above that, across the front of the card, I used 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain in Pumpkin Pie.

I used Stampin UP Markers to color the stamp (direct to stamp), then colored in some of the images with the Markers as well. The colors I used were: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, and Daffodil Delight.

The game board is layered on a 2″ square of Marina Mist card stock, and I used the Game Spinner Hands from the Occasions Mini Catalog. For more tips and tricks on using the Game Spinner Hands, see this card I made.

Finally, the sentiment at the bottom is from So Happy for You from the Sale-a-bration catalog, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.
