Happy Father's Day

Last weekend, I ordered a few items from Mint Owl Studio, including the new Under Construction stamp set. I was drawn to it because of the Father's Day/dad sentiments- and was over-the-moon delighted when my goodies arrived this week already!! I don't have a father but do enjoy creating cards for my husband who is an AMAZING dad to our children. I am so thankful and blessed to have him - and our kids feel the same way!!


I had a fun time cutting and colouring the images. I wasn't sure which ones I would use so I did quite a few and now I've got some extras all ready for another project. I used watercolour paper and distress inks for the background strip behind the machinery and construction worker. Some items are popped and some lie flat so there's some wonderful dimension to this card.



I'm going to link up this project in this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Super cute for Father's Day. I have never heard of this shop, so I will have to check them out. So many new ones seem to be popping up and they all have a great selection of goodies.

This is just darling, Kate. Making your inked background a thin strip under that puffy cloud die is a perfect backdrop for all that beautifully colored construction equipment. I'm a little behind the 8 ball but I just noticed your new blog design. It looks great!

What a fabulous card! These images are just so cute. It's so tough to find cute images for the guys, and I'm thinking I need to order this set. I love the dimension you added to your card, it turned out wonderfully!
