Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #70 Father's Day


I'm very limited as to stamp sets to use for men or for Father's Day, so I really had to put my thinking cap on. I had to hearken back to the days that I bought gifts for the men in my life and most often a tie was in the picture.  So I though why not a tie card....or a card shaped like a tie.  So I created my own pattern about 4 x 9" so it would fit in a #10 business envelope, cut it out and glued paper on my pattern from the new Just Add Cake Designers Series Paper from the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.  I designed my tie with swirls and flourishes from Baroque Motif (one of my favorite swirl stamps)...stamped it in VersaMark and heat set with Black Embossing Powder. Maybe I should be a fabulous designer of men's ties cause I think my tie is F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!!!!!!  I hope you will all join me over at the Hand Stamped Sentiments Father's Day Challenge.  If you need any of the supplies I used in this card or if you would like to have one of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalogs, please email me at sherrysinknstamps@yahoo.com.

  1. This IS Fabulous. I'm going to have to borrow this shape from you so may daughter can make her card. My husband is an avid tie wearer, and although we were going to use the new tie stamp from "Best Dad Ever", your tie would just top it off. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Sherry, I have to agree. i think you need to start a new business venture in men's ties! This is cool and fabulous, indeed! It looks like it has a lot of dimension, too. How did you do that? Love it! Hugs! :)

  5. Sherry, Fabulous tie! You're so creative to use the Baroque Motif Swirl. It's perfect. The embossing makes your tie pop. Love the bright red tie. Great card!

  6. This stamp is one of my fav swirls too! I love this card. Have no fathers to give it to tho. I'm not one who gives one to my husband, since I'm not the mother of his children. I will keep it in mind as a birthday card tho. Neat idea!
    Thanks!
