Inspired Stamps: Father's Day

Good Thursday, bloggers! This week the Inspired Stamps design team was asked to make Father's Day cards. I chose to use their Men of Favor stamp set for my stamp and some beautiful wood and woodgrain textures for the accent pieces. Since the wood frame I had was oval, I placed the Happy Father's Day sentiment curved on my stamp block. Because Inspired Stamps are made out of the highest quality photopolymer, it's quite easy to do this! They'll stick where you place them on your acrylic block to insure perfect stamping! Since the scripture fit perfectly as is, I didn't have to manipulate that stamp at all.

The second picture is the woodgrain paper after I had distressed it with copious amounts of distress stains, inks, and mists. I really really like how it turned out and hope it gave my card a masculine feel. Plus I got a new camera and wanted to take an artsy picture. ;)

To celebrate Memorial Day, Inspired Stamps is having a Memorial Day Sale!! 25% off your entire order, May 24-31st!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Be sure to head over to the Inspired Stamp's blog and see some beautiful inspiration from the other members of the design team!

Inky and glittery fingers for all!
