Father's Day is coming! Whether you celebrate with your Father or anyone that you know that is a Father this is a cute card!
You can even change the sentiment for other occasions, such as Birthday when you need a Manly Card!
I know for me Manly cards can be hard to make! As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator we receive a magazine every two months called Stampin' Success. It features tips and tricks for Demonstrators. Love this magazine!
The most recent one had this cute card
for Father's Day. However, It didn't have the
instructions so I had fun figuring out how to make it!
I made several of them as a matter of fact!
Notice the scraps of paper I used for the pocket?
I also used a scrap of paper for the "thread" in the button!
For the insert this is how I made it.
You have to have an Envelope Punch Board to make this card!!!
Cut the cardstock 7 7/8" x 7 7/8" for the Vest.
I also just had to make a video
I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by! Now head on to the next Blog for some more Inspiration!

While I was there my Stampin' Up! Sister Cindy Baughman took me around to her favorite places! What a trip to remember! We ate at her favorite places, she spoiled me with gifts and Leis and we took lots of selfies!
I used the Let's Getaway Project Life Card Collection #137907 and the Let's Getaway Project Life Accessory Pack #137908
I loved popping up some of my embellishments!
I did learn something this time with my photo printing
I chose True Digital and the photos were smaller than 4X6.
Solution? Pop them onto a 4X6 Card from the Card collection!
Thank you for stopping by, now off the Fabulous Georgia Giguere's blog!
If you came from the Spunky Janet Wakeland's Blog I am sure you were inspired!
Well, ink up some bubble wrap and use it for a background image
for your cards!
It gives a really fun effect!
Here is an update on my Dream Incentive Trip with Stampin' Up!
As most of you know I moved from Texas to Arizona last May.
I have been so blessed that a lot of my stamping friends in Texas are Stamping with me Virtually! I tell them what stamp set we are using that month.
They place their orders on my website www.sharonarmstrong.stampinup.net
then I mail them a FREE Card Kit each month so they can make 6 Cards using that stamp set! I email them a PDF instruction sheet plus make a YouTube Video to let them get a visual of what to do! The Video has tips and tricks that everyone loves!
The best part I show is how I fix my mistakes!
Because if I make a mistake perhaps they will too.
They love that as a "seasoned" stamper I am am showing them I am not perfect!
If you would like to know about the next upcoming Online Class email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the information!
With that said, I am proud to say that I am getting very close to my Dream trip!
I have until the end of June 2015 to reach my goal!
Thanks for cheering me on!
And if you placed an order with me this past year, THANK YOU!
The blog hop is taking place at the same time as several fundraising events
being held across the country.
The idea for this nationwide fundraising extravaganza
came from Lee Conrey, my dear friend. She has organized two blog tours to raise money for Autism.
Boys are 4 times more likely to have Autism than
girls. Emerging Color Technique
This blue colored card for Autism was a new technique for me
that I learned from my friend Karen Bouchikas.
We get together and share technique ideas.
I made this card by:
Using a Colorful piece of Designer Series paper(this one is from Painted Blooms)
Then find a Solid Image Stamp (this one is from Petal Potpourri) Stamp Image all over DSP with Versamark. Add clear embossing powder and heat set. Brayer all over with darker color ink (Pacific Point was used) Wipe off embossed areas with a paper towel. Add Satin Ribbon across front of card. Attach to layer of Whisper White and then add to Pacific Point card base Stamp sentiment and use Decorative Label punch
If you would like to order the products to make this card
I will donate 20% of any orders placed this
weekend to Autism. Please use this Hostess Code at checkout so I can keep track easier! Code H2VC27ED
If you prefer not to order and want to Donate to Autism
Thanks for visiting and please think about donating even just $1…every little bit helps.
Now hop on over to my friend and very talented Jeannette Thompson Swain Blog for her amazing post!
