Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peek - Day 1 - Graphic Greetings Dad


Hello everyone and welcome!!! Today is the day we have all been waiting for.....it's Day 1 of Taylored Expressions May Sneak Peeks....Whoohoo!!!!! The theme today is *For Him* and I am really excited to show you the card I made with the awesome Graphic Greetings Dad stamp....one of the new May release stamps!!! I have a husband, four sons, a son in law, and my Dad to make cards for not to mention several grandsons so as you can imagine I am always on the lookout for guy stamps and masculine card ideas!!! I was thrilled to work with this awesome stamp....it's just perfect for Father's Day and birthdays!!! Since my new favorite technique is chalkboard....I was doubly thrilled because this stamp works beautifully with the chalkboard technique!!!!!!!

The Graphic Greetings Dad stamp was stamped with Versamark onto black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. I ran my embossing buddy over the card stock prior to stamping so the ep wouldn't stick where it wasn't supposed to. After embossing, white craft ink was sponged on to give it the dirty chalkboard look.  I made my chevrons using Julie Hoffman's tutorial found here. The paper is from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers and the twine, buttons, sewing, and distressing finish it off.

Now I have my Dad's Father's Day card finished...yeaaaaa!!! Tomorrow will be Day 2 of the Sneak Peeks and then the May Release will be Thursday morning, May 9th at 8am PST!!!

Now, are you ready to see more sneak peeks from the awesome Baker's Dozen Design Team?? Check it out!!!

Joan Ervin - Guest Designer - you are here!!

Thanks for stopping by....have a wonderful day!!!!!
