Nautical Father’s Day Card

Hello and welcome! Today I wanted to share with you a Nautical Father’s Day card that I created using a number of different Stampin’ Up! products. Often I stick to a particular bundle when creating cards but in this example I have used three different Stamp Sets and two different Die Sets!

I hope you like my Pacific Point Nautical Father’s Day Card. I think it has a real sailing feel without a boat in sight!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then cut a strip of Pacific Point cardstock measuring 14.9 x 7.3 cm and adhered it centrally to the card base.

I used the Stamparatus to create a background pattern onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock measuring 14.9 x 7.1 cm. The stamp is from the Pattern Play Stamp Set and I’ve used the hinge-step technique to stamp it repeatedly in Pacific Point ink. As you can see, I’ve used multi-generation stamping to produce different depths of colour. This strip is adhered to the Pacific Point strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Stamparatus is perfect for this technique and makes it so easy to produce this kind of effect. If you are interested in purchasing the Stamparatus, why not consider adding it to a Starter Kit during June and you’ll be able to choose £130 worth of product plus a FREE bundle for just £99.

The die cut ‘happy’ is from the Well Written Die Set and is cut out of Pacific Point cardstock – I used the Adhesive Sheets to help adhere this to the card.

The large label is from the Tasteful Labels Die Set and is cut out of Pacific Point cardstock. I have trimmed the edge using my Paper Trimmer such that it sits flush with the edge of the card base. The horizontal banner is from the same Die Set and is used to cut out a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Onto this I have stamped ‘Father’s Day’ from the Well Said Stamp Set and the ‘chevrons’ from the Pattern Play Stamp Set. Both are stamped in Pacific Point but I have stamped off first with the ‘chevrons’.

The final sentiment is from the Round of Applause Stamp Set and I have heat embossed it onto Pacific Point cardstock using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is then cut out using the other banner from the Tasteful Labels Die Set.

The final touch is provided by some ‘splatter’ which I created using the Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker.
