Just Believe

This is my swap for the retiring stamp sets I made also using retiring ink pads.
This stamp set is called Just Believe and you have until June 3 to order this stamp set.  Stampin' Up! announced yesterday that retiring stamp sets would be available until then.  The colors are Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery (all colors that are retiring).  I used the Labels Collection Framelit and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits which are not retiring to make this card. This weekend, I will be posting some new cards made with the new sets and accessories.

Happy Father's Day Beer Mug

This is my Happy Father's Day card that could also be a masculine Happy Birthday card.  I used the Woodgrain background stamp with Soft Suede card stock and adhered to Whisper White folded card stock.  To make the mug I used a  3" x 31/2" of Whisper White and used a corner rounder punch on all four sides.  To make the handle is I used the Oval Punches to make the mug handle by first punching the smaller oval on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then taking the larger oval punch over where I just punched.  The beverage is made by using 3 pieces of So Saffron card stock at 7/8" x 3 3/4" cardstock and used the corner rounder punch on them as well.  I sponged all three with So Saffron ink and stamped Happy Father's Day in Soft Suede on one of them.
To make the foam, I used the 1 1/2" Circle punch on Whisper White card stock and punched out 3.  Then I punched out 5 circles with the 3/4" Circle Punch, 1 of the 1/2 circle punch, and 5 of the Itty Bitty Scallop Punch.  Each was adhered with dimensionals.
