I finished these cards just in the nick of time! DH will be spending Father’s Day with our two married sons. We needed to leave for the airport at 6:30 and I was taking pictures of them at 6:15! So they may not be perfect photos. But since three of the four cards are now out the door and on their way, they are what they are!
This first card is for my DFIL. The image is colored with SU! reinkers. The designer paper is from Basic Grey’s “Scarlet’s Letter” .
Stamps: SU! “For Father”, “Sanded”, “Wonderful Favorites”
Papers: Watercolor, Very Vanilla, DP Basic Grey’s “Scarlet’s Letter”
Inks: Jet Black Stazon, SU! Reinkers in Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Summer Sun, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: GG Ribbon, Eyelet, Miniature Screw Brads, Twine, Gel Pens
This card is for my DH. He looks pretty comfy there in his chair. And I’m so proud that he color coordinated his evening wear. He won’t get this card until he gets back from his trip. His two sons living here can give him a second special day. Hope the popcorn is still good by then. *chuckle* It was made with Liquid Applique. After using my heat gun to puff it up, I took a Summer Sun marker and colored around it. More LA would have helped to cover the stamped black lines, but I had to laugh. I can never pop a bag of microwave popcorn without burning some of it! So in reality this is pretty much what our popcorn looks like around here! I had so much fun with all the paper piecing on this one. Lots of dimension, too. The TV antena is colored with Sakura’s StarDust GellyRoll Pen and the TV screen is colored with their Glaze Gray Pen.
Next time I use this image, I will lay down some “carpet” and put up some wallpaper first and then stamp and paper piece on top of that. With the white walls and floor, DH almost looks like he is sitting in the dentist’s chair. Which brings us to card #3…

This card is for my DS Jeff, who is in dental school and who has just informed DH and me that we are going to be grandparents again come January! This will be Jeff and Kimberly’s first. So I thought I would get him started with his first Father’s Day card. Kimberly is my DDIL whose cards I have shared both here and over in my SCS Gallery. Actually Jeff has made me a card or two as well that I have also uploaded there.
All stamps, papers, inks and accessories are from Stampin’ Up! which makes this an SUO card. (Well except for that little piece of twine. I think I raided DH’s tool box some time ago and stole away with his ball of twine. Wonder if he ever missed it.)

This card is for my DS Gary. He is the daddy to my sweet little twin granddaughters. The inside of the card reads, “Hats Off To You”. Parenthood came at a very young age for both him and his wonderful wife, Jenna.. just 19!! It was not easy.. the girls were very premature and when they were finally allowed to come home from the hospital they still had to have oxygen (as in tanks!) connected to them. Gary and Jenna were truly baptized by fire with these little ones and we are so proud of the great parents that they are. I love this image for Gary! It is so him… full speed ahead on life!
