It’s Saturday and time for another fun challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids! This time our challenge is Happy Father’s Day (From the Kids)! Create and link any card that a child could give to his Dad or Grandpa and you could win one of our great prizes. Once again we are starting early so there is enough time should you choose to send in your Father’s Day cards for one of our kids in a children’s hospital on Father’s Day to give to his Dad or Grandpa. The gift of giving is one of the best things we can give to our kids! All the details on how to donate can be found on the blog here.
We have three very generous sponsors for this challenge: Kitchen Sink Stamps is giving their winner a $25 gift certificate! Stitchy Bear Outlet is giving their randomly picked winner 3 images (a $10 value)! And Fred She Said’s winner gets a $10 gift certificate! TEAM S.A.S will also be choosing their favorite cards for our top three and the winners will receive a blog badge and an opportunity to be a guest design team member on a future challenge.
My first card above is made with a set of stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps called Classic Old Truck. It is perfect for Father's Day or any other occasion for a man. I love Kitchen Sink Stamps because they make me feel like a real artist with all the beautiful shading made easy with their series of stamps for each image. The truck is created with several shades of red ink, along with grey and black ink in stamping layers. The sentiment is from the same set. The silvery black background is made with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug and sponged on 3D Stamp Paint from Viva.
My second card features BB Kakes Balloon Boy from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet. Isn't he sweet? I stamped him on a white square and a light blue square, cut out the squares and put him back together as shown. I layered on navy blue and then a patterned cardstock card and added a fun sentiment.
My last card showcases a cute little girl called "Emma in her Cool Cap" from Fred She Said. I created a heart easel card with several Spellbinders heart dies and embossed the pink top heart with an embossing folder from Darice. Sweet Emma who loves her Dad was printed and simply cut out. The Happy Father's Day sentiment is popped up with pop dots so it holds the easel card open as shown in the second picture.
