Fathers Day cards

yesterday I sat down to make some Father's Day cards for my Mom's husband, my father in law and my husband...

So, where do you go for inspiration?   I have several places.....the quickest is Pinterest, the most selection for all Stampin' Up! Stamp sets all organized, usually listing great details....Splitcoast Stampers wins hands down.   Being a demonstrator, we have a place for all kinds of sharing, it's called, Stampin' Connection, a great perk of being a demo.   Here I can see some inspiration from fellow demos that may be exclusive and not shared elsewhere.   And of course all those blogs we surf!!!

Last night, I went to Pinterest, entered a stamp set I wanted to use, and as soon as samples showed up,I got some ideas flowing.    I made 3 cards, but none were even close to the cards that inspired me.  BUT, sometimes it's not what you look at,but what you see.

I only took a picture of one of them and I will share that one today, and when I get a chance to take pictures of the other 2, I will post them in another post.

Here is the card I still have and will give to my husband on Sunday,.   I am also using it for a challenge, at Just Add Ink Blog for their challenge.....

Just Add Ink #267....Just Add Typography!

I used the set, Guy Greetings which I bought several months ago and never even opened until yesterday.   The DSP is from the Occasions Mini called Adventure Bound - it was a paper stack and I used Mossy Meadow, Early Expresso, Whisper White and Basic Gray (all colors listed on the paper stack package.   I also used the stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge and some sponging.
