SIP #149 Dads and Grads Challenge

Hello there!  I hope your week is off to an awesome start!  At least we survived Monday, right?  I have a friend that recently retired.   She said every night feels like Friday night and every day feels like Saturday... how cool that would be!!  I have a few more years to go but not too many.  Hopefully it will feel like that to me too!  I wonder if I'll craft every day??  I think I will!  :)

As usual Tuesdays always mean it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week's S.I.P. Challenge #149 is all about Dads & Grads!

I've been playing around with some of my Concord & 9th products from their April 2018 release.  I used the Sketched Stripes Background stamp on this one along with the Painted Rose Dies for the "thinking of you" sentiment.  For the DAD in the background I used Stampin' Up! Large Letters Framelits.  I haven't made an Eclipse Card in a while and felt like this was a good time to do so!

The sketched Stripes were stamped in Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip Ink onto Very Vanilla SU Cardstock.  I cut the panel out with a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle Die.   I cut the DAD out with the Large Letters Framelits.  I also cut out 3 layers of the same letters in Early Espresso Cardstock to stack under the letters. All of the letters were adhered to each other with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  I cut the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Painted Rose dies out in Early Espresso cardstock twice so I could stack them.  I adhered them over the DAD with more of the Tombow glue.   The front panel was matted on a larger panel of Soft Suede that was cut with a larger Stitched Rectangle die and then those were mounted onto a Dark Brown Woodgrain Card Base.

I love the way this turned out and I hope you do too.  Masculine cards don't have to be boring, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
