Happy Father's Day To A Real Classic-Cutting Cafe

Good Morning Everyone! Happy June 1st! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great week! Here's a couple of cards I did for The Monthly Inspiration over at The Cutting Cafe using the Cruisin By To Say Hi Printable Stamp Set. This is an AWESOME set that comes with 98 images that features 3 different cars in 3 different sizes. Each car also comes in black and white as well as a few fun colors.The set also comes with 14 sentiments in 3 ways...Straight and circle words. I have to admit when Regina told the Design Team what set we would be using this month, I had no idea what I was going to do, but I knew I had to make a couple of Father's Day cards so I thought I would use the set for them. I had so much fun with this set and they came together so quickly, but that is no surprise, all of The Cutting Cafe's files are so quick and easy. Regina has done all the work for you---

Very nice cards...yet so so bright and cheerful and the other a more vintage them always do the best masculine cards!!

Beth said...

Both of these cards are great! You really do a fantastic job with The Cuttting Cafe stamps. Nothing says classic more than the red, white and blue on the first card. The "honk" circle is so cool. I really love how you used the beaded nestie to make a circle shaped card on the second one. Very vintage!

Wonderful Fathers' Day cards! I've been in a slump trying to think of a card for my dad....wish I could come up with card ideas as easily and quickly as you seem to! Love the very classy look you created on these cards with the cars and distressing!

I love the colors of the first one - man's pinstripe suit and the red coordinating tie - but I'm partial to the second. First of all it's BLUE but I love the muted colors and how you made it distressed - the whole thing is perfect - looks like it was made by a machine. How do you do that? Mine are never even. Way to go!
