Happy Father's Day!

Goodies for my Dad :)

Truck stamp is from Printworks. I stamped with Black Stazon on watercolor paper. Colored with Aquapainter and a few different inks (watercolor crayons, watercolor pencils, SU Classic Inks). The ground speckles is also a stamp from Printworks. Stamped "dad" on truck with alphabet set from CTMH. Card base is Stampin'UP! Naturals White. All the rest of the paper and Cardstock is from CTMH. Corners punched with SU Ticket Corner. Used Exacto knife to cut slit for tag. Sponged brown ink around edges.

Tag stamp is from Printworks. Tag punched from Marvy Uchida punch. Used the ground speckle stamp and lightly stamped all over the tag then sponged brown around the edges.

When I was a dad used to take the family to the lake all the time. It seemed every weekend during the summer we were having a blast on the boat. Water skiing was always part of the fun. So when I found this immediately took me back to those days. My brother and I have lots of wonderful "funny" memories of back in the day! ha! Like I said...this is a postcard...not a real family pic :)

The page is 6x6. I used CTMH Paper and Cardstock. DAD chipboard letters from Unique Pages and I sponged brown ink all on the edged and surface. Family dangle is from CTMH. I cut a piece of cardstock and used Crystal Effects to attach it. I also smeared white chalk over the top so the etched letters would stand out more.

Family dangle is from CTMH. I cut a piece of cardstock and used Crystal Effects to attach it. I also smeared white chalk over the top so the etched letters would stand out more. Photo stamped with Canvas Background from Stampin'UP! and punched with Photo Corners punch. the strip behind DAD is also stamped with Canvas Background. The DAD brad is from Karen Foster. It was actually a brighter green color so I used a Sharpie marker to color in darker to match.

I Remember When... is a stamp from CTMH. Stamped and also sponged around edges and all over lightly. Then I used VersaMark pad and inked up the entire piece. Embossed with Thick Clear Embossing Powder about 6 times. When completely cooled I cracked in a few places. I think this is called Paper Crackling or Emboss Crackling? Something like that. I'm sure there's a tutorial on SCS somewhere.

I put the page in Picture It Pageframe and used twine to hang. These frames are really cool! They come in several sizes perfect for scrapbook layouts. I found these at a local scrapbook store.

As you can see...these frames allow plenty of space for dimensionals and embellishments! You can easily slide the page in and out which means you can change the pages often with ease. It's also a great way to display a beautiful card!
