CS Father's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the CS Father's Day Blog Hop, hosted by Chris at Get Inspired With Chatterscene -  I hope all of our craft creations inspire you to make something great for the men in your life for Father's Day!  Thanks for joining us!!

You should have arrived here from Chris's blog Get Inspired With Chatterscene.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, please go back to the start of the hop at Chris' blog to start so you don't miss any of the projects! There is blog candy offered so you want to start at the beginning and read how to participate to win!

For my projects, I made 2 father's day cards - one for my dad and one for my husband from the boys and I!

My poor dad, who is the master of all things handy, has been helping my siblings and I with projects around our houses lately, so I wanted to make him a card with a recliner on it - in hopes that it will encourage him to ignore all of us and take it easy on father's day!  ;-) 

The Father's Day Seasonal Cricut cart had the perfect recliner on it!!  I used the Dots, Stripes and Plaids stack from DCWV - its perfect for masculine cards!  The sentiment stamp is from the 'Our Fathers' set from Pink by Design, ribbon from American Crafts and the jewels I found in my stash.  I used the Cricut Essentials cart on my E2 for the tag as well as my Cuttlebug and the 'Argyle' embossing folder by Sizzix for the card base embossing, I used embossing powder and my heat gun to emboss the sentiment stamp and finally I inked the front of the card base as well as the edges.

Then for my card for my husband, I wanted to use a sports car - he's forevering talking about how much he wants a sports car but unfortunately it isn't in the financial cards for us right now.  :-(  So the best I can do is a sports car on his father's day card - its better then nothing, right?  ;-)  I found the sports car on the Father's Day Seasonal Cricut cart as well.  I used paper from my stash for this card, sentiment stamp from 'Our Fathers' by Pink By Design, twine from The Twinery as well as my Cuttlebug and the 'Argyle embossing folder by Sizzix again.

I have a fun giveaway here on my blog - an i-rock by Imaginesce as well as some bling to go with it, which I plan to pick up this weekend so that part will be a surprise!  :-)  I have been using mine for a couple of months and I do love it to add bling to my projects!  To be eligible to win, leave a comment on this post as well as become a follower of my blog!  I will use the random number generator to draw a name on Thursday, June 23 and will announce it here on my blog!
Thanks for hopping along with us!!  Remember, if you leave a comment on every designers blog hop post, your name will go into the drawing for the blog candy offered by ChatterScene.
Next up on the hop is Cassie at Scrappin' Palace, you'll love the fun project she has for you!

  7. What a cool idea to give your helpful father a reminder to chill and relax on his day. Also, I may have to snag your idea to make the dh a card with a mustang on it! LOL, not in our financial cards now either.
    Happy to have hopped in and became a new follower!

  41. These are really cute cards, Kim. I just found out about this hop and I may be too late to be entered into any of the giveaways but I still wanted to hop around and see what everybody made for Father's Day. I made a card with a recliner on it too only mine was a digi stamp colored with Copic markers. Love your work and just became your newest follower.

    Thanks, Anniebee
