Father's Day

Today's card is my FIL's Father's Day card.  I CASEd one I found on Pinterest, hers was a birthday card tho.  I used The Open Sea set from Stampin' Up! and did the "triple time stamping" technique.  The layers are 2x3 1/4, 3x4 1/4, and 4x5 1/4.  I used temporary adhesive to glue them together, then did my stamping.  I stamped with Color Box in Putty and Black Soot distress ink.  Cut a mat for each layer 1/4" larger from black cs.  Referee bakers twine and sentiment from Paper and Such (couldn't find their link to post).

***I am taking the summer off from QKR Stampede design team, so I won't be posting every week.  Please continue to look at their blog for inspiration from the other girls and enter their ATG challenges w/twist!

  18. So much to love about this fantastic masculine card! I love the triple stamping/layering technique and the monochrome color with the nautical theme! Thanks so much for joining us at Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges!

  19. Love the effect of the triple stamping and layers here. I've used this technique a few times, and I've come to prefer to cut the panel into layers after stamping, I can picture where the cuts will be made or I use little pencil marks if I need to.

  20. Love your project! Thanks so very much for playing along with our June Anything Goes Challenge at Bugaboo I hop to see you again very soon!

  21. What a fabulous card and I love the layers and how you've stamped onto each one's fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along with us over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog... x
