Another Father's Day Card


This is another Father's Day Card I made - a very CAS card! I used the Mint Motif (Very Square) stamp set (check this set out over at i {heart} papers) and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. As I said it is VERY clean and simple. I simply stamped the squares and then cut them out. The square in Wild Wasabi and the Baja Breeze one were stitched (zig-zag) around the edges. The Tangerine Tango square was "popped" up with dimensionals. I had originally stamped the sentiment directly on the card - but then after sewing I noticed that there was some type of smudge right over the sentiment! UGH! Don't you just hate it when something like that happens!! So anyway, I just stamped it again on white CS, matted it in the Tangerine Tango, and put it over the original sentiment.

This is, again, for the CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge and also for the CAS challenge at Ink Spots and Gum Drops blog.
For both of these the theme was Father's Day.


Thanks so much for all the happy comments on the previous post (Rambo). He was VERY excited since so many thought him to be so handsome! LOL.


Also - an update on the green beans I've been canning..........I finally quit canning at 62 jars!! Enough is enough already. We had a "pick and pull" ( that is when you stand there, pull up the plant, pick the beans off it, and throw the plants in a pile) and we are now officially out of the bean business! YES! The tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, pepper, and okra haven't hit yet - but they will.............


Thanks for stopping by......................

Great CAS card! This is a terrific layout to use up some scraps too! Might have to hijack this when my Mojo comes back! Off to look at Sunday's post - not sure why I didn't see it!

CAS is stunning, you do them so well! Love this one Lynn. Fab design and stitching. And inbetween all the canning, you managed to make this gorgeous card - take my hat off to you girl!

I like the different patterns and colors and how you stitched around the blocks. Very nice FD card.

Sixty-two jars of beans?! I just got my beans planted yesterday. I've been too busy to get my garden in before now. I will be happy to get a couple of meals of them let alone have enough to can.

What a great idea to use a stamped image instead of dp. Love the card and its colors.

I'm exhausted just thinking about what is involved in canning 62 jars of beans.

Great card- I have such a terrible time getting good images with solid stamps. I love the layout you used too.

Great job! I wish I could sew, I love the technique!

Sounds like you've been busy with all of your canning. I haven't started canning yet, but I probably will next month- I usually do tomatoes and peppers.

Awesome Father's Day card, love the zigzag stitching on your card and I think your sentiment looks great. Now no one will ever know that you had a boo boo to correct.
