Father's Day Card Ideas for Stampers

Hi, everyone! 

Can you believe Father's Day is a month away? June 17th to be exact.

That means it is time to start making cards for the Fathers, Grandpas, Uncles and other important men in your life. There's no better way to tell them you appreciate them than a giving them a handmade gift from the heart.

Need a little inspiration to get started? Here are a few projects from the Technique Tuesday Design Team that are sure to fuel your creative juices.

Father's Day Card Inspiration from Technique Tuesday || TechniqueTuesday.com

Want to tell your husband or boyfriend to have a happy day? Use the Sassy Guy stamps to make a card like Heather's. Really focus on the message by making a clean and graphic card that emphasizes the words! 


Father's Day Card Inspiration from Technique Tuesday || TechniqueTuesday.com

Like to use patterned paper when you make cards? It can be hard at times to find the perfect patterned paper so take a cue from Jill. Put your stamps to use and make your own! Jill created the black background paper by heat embossing the plane (from the What a Guy stamp set) over and over with white embossing powder. Not a fan of embossing stamped images? Bypass the embossing. Take a piece of white cardstock and stamp the plane on it and over with green, blue and brown inks. 


Father's Day Card Inspiration from Technique Tuesday || TechniqueTuesday.com

Remember, not all cards have to say "Happy Father's Day" on them. Consider creating a card like this and then writing a Father's Day inspired sentiment on the inside.  


Father's Day Card Inspiration from Technique Tuesday || TechniqueTuesday.com

Want to impress your favorite fella with your crafty skills? Stamp an image like the measuring tapes on watercolor paper and then color the images in watercolors. Add a shadow under your tape measures to ground them. Also remember to use waterproof ink to stamp your images in! 

Father's Day Card Inspiration from Technique Tuesday || TechniqueTuesday.com

Consider trying something out of the box when you sit down to make your Father's Day cards. Instead of stamping on white cardstock, stamp on a non-traditional color, such as kraft or tan. Planning on coloring the images in? Stamp a few images on scratch paper and experiment with your markers to make the sure the colors will look good on your card.

Looking for even more card inspiration? Be sure to check out our "All About the Guys" gallery! You'll find more Father's Day cards, plus ideas for lots of other cards to make for your favorite guys.

Cut several cards from cardstock. Open them up and use the die to cut a border along the front side of each card.

Add a love-themed stamped sentiment to the front of each card. The one I used is from the Simply You 2.0 stamp set, but you'll find all kinds of great sentiments in the Wedding, Anniversary and Love collection.

Complete your cards by adding some enamel dots or sequins to your design.

Make a custom patterned paper to use on a card or scrapbook page.

You-Have-Style-Dress-Forms-Layout-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayStart with a blank piece of cardstock and stamp several dress forms on it. Color them in with markers or pencils. Then use the paper just like you would with a regular piece of patterned paper to decorate your card or scrapbook page.

---------------------------------

Create a scene.

Anything-Is-Possible-Dress-Forms-Card-Tobi-C-Technique-TuesdaySponge or brayer several colors of ink onto cardstock. Then stamp three dress forms on top to create  scene, reminiscent of a dress shop or a tailor's studio. For added pop, use markers or gel pens to add some extra details to the dress forms.

---------------------------------

Use just the dresses.

Blue-Dress-Form-Card-Shelley-G-Technique-TuesdayStamp the dress forms on patterned paper or cardstock. Fussy cut them out with your scissors and then arrange them on a card or scrapbook page. For added pop, adhere one of the dresses with foam tape.
