Hi Stampin' Friends,
I thought this would make a great Father's Day card for my sons to give to their dad on Father's Day. I don't have a Father's Day stamp so I used wonderful from Warm Words. My wonderful husband is a very special day! God has blessed our family with a wonderful husband and father. I used the spiral punch on the Baja Breeze strip, threaded natural hemp twine through the slots, and tied knots around each piece showing on top. This is the first time I have used the set Branch Out. I colored the tire swing with Creamy Caramel and Basic Black markers. Such an easy technique to add color to your markers. Just color directly on the stamp with Stampin' Up! Markers (water based) and huff on the stamp. The moisture in your breath reactivates the ink and then stamp as usual. We will be making a card similar to this at my May Stamp Camp!
