both cards start out by using the aqua painters to make the background. I used Soft Sky and Crumb Cake on both, with the addition of Lost Lagoon on the card with the grasses.
The Happy Father's Day stamp is from the Crazy About You stamp set. This is going to become a most used set I can tell. It has just about everything a card maker needs as far as sentiments go. I have the Teeny Tiny Wishes for this as well, but its nice to have another option and I like the size of these. It's a pricer set, but you get a lot. There is also a thinlit set that goes with it that you can get as a bundle.
This set has lots of words, and they are separated so you need to sort of build your sentiment. Here I used the Happy and the Father's Day. I think that using a lined scrap paper before stamping is essential. I use the Stampin' Up! grid paper as my work surface, it is perfect for this. You can make sure your words are lined up perfectly.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
