Fantasy Stampers - Fathers' Day

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Hi it is the weekend and I wonder what your plans might be? We are off to the theatre this afternoon, with my daughter and her boyfriend, to see The Importance of Being Earnest with David Sutchet in the lead role.

This is my inspiration card for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog this time the theme is Father's Day. The challenge is open to everyone you need to follow the theme and use some stamps.


It is an 8" x 8" card. All the stamps I used are by Creative Expressions and designed by Sam Poole. The background was made with an A6 netting background stamp. I stamped it in my hand with CS Perfect Medium and then it was heat embossed with a white powder. Then I inked over the page with two shades of blue distress ink. 


The Happy Father's day stamp came in the Ship-in-a-bottle stamp set. 


The anchor came from the middle of the Nautical Words stamp.



The lighthouse stamp set contains the lighthouse and the inspirational words. 


I was rather pleased that this card was featured on the Readers Cards page on the June issue of Making Cards Magazine. 


Here is a slightly closer shot of the page. It is nice to see your card in print all nicely photographed. 


I hope you enjoy your weekend. I will be back tomorrow with another post. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
