Craft Online - Happy Father's Day (Video)

Hi friends, today I'm back with a Father's Day for Craft Online. I used the Poppy Crafts Garden Tool Set Dies to create a fun embossed background. 

I started off with a white piece of cardstock and adhered two grey stripes over the top. I then laid out my dies over the panel and ran it through my die cutting machine on some rubber mats so they emboss and don't cut. 

I then die cut the 'Happy Father's Day' Die from black and dark grey cardstock, adhered them together creating a drop shadow and adhered them onto my card using foam tape. 

I finished off by adding the apostrophe and dot of the exclamation point and that finished off my card for today. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my 10 minute simple Father's Day Card. See you next time!

For today's card I used the new 'Boo!' Stamp Set along with the older 'Halloween Pals' Stamp Set. I also used the new 'Spooky Fence' Die, too.

I started off with stamping out all my images from 'Boo!' and 'Halloween Pals' and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out. While I was die cutting, I also cut out the 'Spooky Fence' Die from black cardstock and a hill using the 'Stitched Borders 1' Dies from watercolour cardstock. 

(Copic Markers Used: YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19 / E50, E51, E53, E55 / R000, R30, R20 / W00, W0, W1 / 0 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / W2, W3, W5, W7 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / YG61, YG63, YG67, G28 / R14, R24, R27, R89)

Now everything was was die cut out, I took the hill piece and another piece of watercolour cardstock and ink blended some Distress Oxide Inks onto each piece. I then flicked on some water and dried them with a heat tool. 

(Distress Oxide Inks Used: Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, Broken China / Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint)

I then die cut the word 'Boo' from the top centre of the blue ink blended panel using the 'Boo!' Dies. I made sure to keep the centre pieces for later. 

Now it was time to adhere everything together. I added foam tape onto the back of the blue ink blended panel and adhered it onto a grey card base. I adhered the insides of the letters as well. I then adhered the 'Spooky Fence' with liquid glue and then the green hill onto the bottom and all my critters on top. I white heat embossed the 'Happy Halloween' sentiment from 'Boo!' onto a strip of black cardstock, and adhered it over the die cut Boo word. I added white details using a gel pen and that finished off my card for today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Yana Smakula is the last stop on the hop today so make sure you head over to see her wonderful creation. 

See you next time!
