Father’s Day using Guy Greetings

Father's Day Guy Greetings

Need a quick Father’s Day card that makes a statement?  Look no further than your cardstock scraps!  Use any color scheme you want and add this great sentiment from Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

  • A super great thing about this particular stamp set is that you can choose the type of stamp set YOU like best!  It comes in clear mount, photopolymer and wood mount!
  • I chose Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze for my “guy” color scheme.  I love these bold colors together!
  • I varied the width of the cardstock to create a great striped look.  Measurements are:
  1. Night of Navy – 1″
  2. Cajun Craze – 3/4″
  3. Crushed Curry – 1/2″
  • Simply put SNAIL Adhesive on each strip, then mount to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock that will act as a base to which you can adhere all of the strips.  Trim the excess edges and adhere that unit to your card base measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.
  • My sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.  It’s a terrific font that comes from Guy Greetings and includes lots of other very usable sentiments.  You’ll have everything covered for all the men in your life with this one set.  Just look!

  • A piece of Crushed Curry and Whisper White Baker’s Twine is all you need to complete this smart and sophisticated look!

Guy Greetings and Hats Off


It’s that time of year again!  Time to think about the men in our lives and get ready for Father’s Day in June.  And Stampin’ Up! has released two perfect products for masculine cards – both in the 2015 Occasions Catalog.

  • Our designer paper and color scheme come from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.  This beautiful paper has lots of plaids and neutrals on one side and real-life nature elements on the other.  This piece is Island Indigo, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.
  • I used the Oval Framelits to cut Whisper White cardstock for the main image and a border of Basic Black cardstock.  The Whisper White cardstock is offstamped using Smoky Slate ink and the Dictionary background stamp.  Just ink up your stamp with Smoky Slate ink, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper then onto your oval so that the ink is light and it creates a background for the hats.
  • This fun stamp set is called Guy Greetings.  If you’re going to purchase just one stamp set for all the guys in your life, this is the one.  It comes complete with lots and lots of sentiments and some really great old-fashioned images.  And good news – you can choose between all three stamp types for this set.  Choose wood mount, clear mount or photopolymer!  Here I stamped the hats image and sentiment in Black Memento Ink.
  • I used my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and Paper-Piercing Tool to set the Silver Brads.  You can’t see it very well in the photo, but the black oval is paper pierced as well using the Occasions Paper-Piercing Template.  This great product is on the retiring products list, so be sure to grab yours before it’s gone!

Happy Father’s Day

Father's Day

To all the wonderful men in our lives who lovingly put up with our papercrafting addiction, Happy Father's Day!  I made three copies of this card for my two sons and my son-in-law who do a super job of parenting my four darling grandbabies.  By the way, I just had to share a picture of them – hope you can indulge a proud "Gra-Gra"!

Grandbabies 6:13

  • I don't own many manly stamp sets, but it's pretty easy to come up with something masculine using some geometric shapes and colors like Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Pacific Point.
  • Clockworks is a great stamp for men – the image stamped in Pacific Point is from that stamp set.  I also used the splatter stamp from my Paper Pumpkin introductory set.  Click HERE for more about our subscription crafting kits program.
  • The sentiment comes from Delightful Dozen – still my go to stamp set for greetings.
  • A Tangerine Tango Glimmer Brad gives a great masculine accent.
  • Argyle Embossing Folder dresses up the background.
  • Some great designer paper makes this card pop and is so easy.  I used my 2-1/2" Circle Punch with paper from Polka Dot Parade (Old Olive) and Soho Subway (Pacific Point).
