Happy Father’s Day & Easy Inky Landscapes!

Well, now, it finally feels like summer! I went out to let the chickens out and it was warm and sunny! I was up last night playing with some of my new stamp show stuff and I made a few cards, they can be for Father’s day or a manly birthday:

I enjoyed making the sponged background landscape so much that I flipped on the video camera and filmed the technique. A card like this is great to have on hand for a guy’s birthday! PS the car and gas pump stamps are by Local King Rubber Stamps.

Here is a close up of the card I made in the video:

At first I wanted to do the background with the new Crafters Workshop cityscape stencil but it seemed a bit busy, what do you think?

I had some old tourist maps that I cut for the background panel on this card, I also used the map to make envelopes, sorry no picture.

I hope you have a fun Father’s day and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Girl, you out did yourself. Manly cards are so hard for me to make. These are awesome. I really want to copy your cards.

    I’ve got some Local King ‘sewing’ themed rubber stamps. Super detailed. Great quality.

    Thanks so much for sharing.



  2. Great cards. I don’t think the cityscape is too busy. I think it looks good. But then I love cityscapes so I am partial. BTW–sorry to hear about your family health scare. I hope all will be well and it soon will be a thing of the past.


  3. Thanks for the video..the cards are great. I think the cityscape one looks good and not too busy, but to me, the mtns. fit the overall look of the card, better. Enjoy your Sunday!


  4. Love the cityscape and love the car….a 1955 Buick…I think!!! Love the mountains too!!! Very nice card and a great idea when it comes to a more ‘manly’ theme!! Tfs


  5. Excellent instructions. I’ve used that technique but not that involved – but I will from now on. I have a motorcycler on a motorcycle stamp from Unity and this is the only technique that seems to work with that stamp.
