SUMMER SPLASH, BEST DAD EVER, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'Hello everyone! I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend celebrating Father’s Day! Brad and Tessa both shared the day together. It was a weekend full of parties and fun. Today we have another birthday in the family. My adorable (he probably wouldn’t want me to call him that Smile) nephew is turning 15 today. Here is his card, it was a tough one for me to make.  I kept asking myself, what do I make for a teenager? When I saw the Summer Splash stamp set and saw the surfboards, I thought it would work, with omitting the flower one. Smile

SUMMER SPLASH, BEST DAD EVER, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'The colors I chose today are Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. To tone down the brightness of the Pacific Point, I daubed the cardstock with Whisper White Ink and a dauber. My pendants come from the new Pendant punch. “happy birthday” sentiment was stamped from Best Dad Ever Stamp Set in Pacific Point. I then hand cut it out to look like a larger pendant.

SUMMER SPLASH, BEST DAD EVER, INSPIRED BY STAMPIN'I gently added ink to only three of the five surfboards using Pacific Point. Hemp twine and a Corduroy Button was added for a masculine touch of glam.
