Simple Cards that Use Your Stash

Got a few cards done this week so I am here sharing with you. Drink is a digital stamp, I believe from Prettygrafik Design, cut out with my Cricut.  Sentiment I made on my computer with Cricut sticker paper.  I have a blog post on how I do this.  This is a great way to personalize your own sentiments.  Patterned paper is from Recollections blush and mint collection which I have almost used up. 🙂

I really like this card design because it showcases all that pretty paper.

Father's Day Cards

Guys, I have been on a Father's Day card-making roll.  I have been making quite a few cards for those in my life that need a card including some friends.  Here is what I have gotten done so far.  Hopefully, these will inspire you.

I used a stamp set I received with a stamp magazine. I loved how it turned out. This one is going to the hubby. This is the retiform technique I have seen some trying..I haven't done this in quite a while but still love it when I find the right color combo and stamps.  I used Pacific Point ink from Stampin up and London fog from Momento.  I think this color combo gives this card a cool feel.
 This one for my father in law who lives on a farm. Thought the simple silhouette with the oxide blended background and the rays would be perfect.  I used a combo of Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxides for the background.  The rays were created by blending in more fossilized amber using a stencil.

This was all created in Design Space in Cricut. It is a blend of several different images in DS.  The images were cut in black cardstock or gold mirror cardstock.  The Layers I did manually with paper from my stash along with more mirror cardstock.

I offered another co-worker to do a Father's Day card for her husband. She wasn't sure what she wanted. So I asked about his hobbies in which she replied to as fishing and beer. So here is what I came up with with the help of Cricut Design Space. Vinyl for the outside. The inside was drawn by the Cricut.

For the last card, I had a request from a friend for a custom Father's Day card for her son. This is what I came up with thanks to some vinyl and Cricut design space.
 I hope you enjoyed this post.  If you have questions or want to see more from me please check me out on my other social media pages below.
