Hey, y’all, happy weekend! I got a travel reprieve – my trip’s moved to next week! Of course, it also extended a day, so…the good with the not-so-bueno, I guess!
Now, my card for today is a Father’s Day card. Yes, I’m aware that Father’s Day isn’t for another few months, but 18 June will be here before you know it!
You know what will not be here then? The Occasions catalog – which means that the Nailed It stamp set and matching Build It Frameltis – well. They might not be here either! So…I wanted to give you an idea for a fun Father’s Day card using these two manly products and some Urban Underground DSP while you’ve still got time to get them. Take a look-see:
My layout is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.
I started with my fave piece of paper from the Urban Underground DSP and stamped the little screw and smiley face images from Nailed It all over with Whisper White Craft Ink. Then I SNAILd it on a Delightful Dijon mat. I used a silver-embossed piece, also matted on Delightful Dijon, across the panel.
The sentiment is on a triple oval – the base mat is Delightful Dijon, cut with a scalloped die in the Ovals Layering Framelits. Next is a Very Vanilla oval, followed by a third oval in Delightful Dijon. That one was cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
I stamped the Nailed It sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink on a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock, and cut it with the little die in the Build It Framelits. It’s a cool one – cuz it also embosses a little edged frame as it cuts!
About this time, I pulled out my Hardwood stamp, inked it with Early Espresso ink, and stamped a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock. The first thing I cut from it was a second little frame, which I adhered to my oval-stack with Liquid Glue. I popped the sentiment frame over the top of that – offset slightly – with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I popped the whole sentiment oval onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Then I built some tools! I cut a hammer and a screwdriver from the Hardwood-stamped card stock. Using the same dies, I cut a hammer head and a screwdriver head from a piece of Silver Foil. I adhered my silver tool-heads to their respective tools with Liquid Glue. Then I used my Stylus on the back of each tool to create some depth. And I gently rubbed some details into the fronts, too!
I wrapped a little piece of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the tool handles (used a Glue Dot on the back to hold it in place), then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
On the inside, I stamped the second sentiment from Nailed It on a Very Vanilla panel – I used the marker-to-rubber technique and colored the stamp directly with the Basic Black and Delightful Dijon markers. Then I added the hammer I’d already put together. I’d made it – I was going to use it, by golly! And who said you can’t put dimensional things on the inside of a card? I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to help my hammer look more real! I also stamped some Basic Black Archival Ink screws, too!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a few more Nailed It screws on the front, as well as some Delightful Dijon smiley faces…
Et Voila! I think this one turned out to be pretty fun, don’t you!? Don’t miss out on getting this set and having all the tools (see what I did there?!) on hand when it comes time to make your Father’s Day cards in a few more months! Hope you like!

As a horse owner, there are a few directives from the veterinarian that we dread hearing….
“Give him 20 of these pills twice a day for 10 days”. This one is a booger, unless you have a Haflinger who’ll eat the pills straight out of her bucket.
“You’ll need to soak this foot for 30 minutes 3 times a day for two weeks”. Oh my – the back….the aching back! Not to mention the three or four clothes changes resulting from the bucket of hot water being tossed about by an uncooperative horse!
And…”He’s on stall rest for a week. You can hand walk him for 15 minutes a few times a day, but that’s it”.
That last one – yikes. Horses move. They need to move. When they don’t move – they get….whack!! Quick.
And so do 8 1/2″ month Australian Shepherds. So, when the vet said to “keep him from running around and jumping as best you can for a few days” to let his sprained toe heal…my heart kind of sank. 🙁
So, on Friday morning, I kept him on the leash for his whole “run” – more like a quiet trot. He didn’t like it.
“Please, Mom. Pleeeeaaaaasssseeee!!!!! I know I’m holding my hurt foot up cuz of how it hurts, but pleaaaaaaaaaasee let me off this leash! I need to run-gallop-leap-bound-cavort-gallop-and-jump! But I won’t if you don’t want me to – I prooooooomise!! I’ll just walk right by you if you’ll just…let…me…off…the….leash…..!”
I didn’t succumb! Cuz I think he was lying. I was strong. But….it’s going to be a long few days!
