Sundays are for Stampin' - July 5th

Hello there! Welcome to another edition of Sundays are for Stampin'! If you've made it this far, keep reading, it's worth it...just being silly (maybe the smoke from all the fireworks in the neighborhood has finally gotten to me).

I've had the best time creating with a new set of stamps that Queen Kat Designs released on July 1st called "Dad Words." Talk about versatile: my first card was made with the 'Man of The Hour' stamp in the set, and I shall give that to my daughter's male teacher who nurtured her ability to read beyond what we could ever have imagined; and for this card I used 'My Man,' perfect for that man in your life, whether he's a dad or not!! I would venture to say that, since my hubby loves for me to call him my man, this stamp will find itself used on, oh, approximately 88% of all cards that I make for him =)

This card is based on a sketch I saw on Tina's blog (she's a fellow QKD DT member!), and it sure worked for a masculine card! 'My Man' is stamped on GinaK cardstock, and while still in the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags trio die, I sponged Cat's Eye Azurite onto the paper. Love that effect!

Here's a details close-up:

Papers: DCWV Animal Crackers Stack, Bazzill Bling, GinaK Pure Luxury cardstock
Inks: Cat's Eye - various blues; Brilliance Charcoal
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby
Accessories: Gutermann thread, Singer sewing machine, We R Memory Keepers grommets, Paper Studio brads, clear embossing powder

Thanks for reading and have a very blessed Sunday!!
