I made a sweet Father’s Day card for my husband, and I wanted to you. I got both of the images I used from Bombshell Stamps. It actually comes in a set of three for…get this…FREE!!! Yup! Totally free.What a fabulous gift for the fans of Bombshell Stamps, huh? Here’s my card: Originally, I had printed the images pretty small (you’ll see the banners down below). I was going to just use them as accents. But then, upon closer inspection of the star, I realized that I would be a fool to not use it as the focal point of the card! I colored this in with my EK Success Watercolor and their metallic markers, plus a couple of Distress Inks with Cut-N-Dry nibs. You all know that I loves me some rubbah, but one thing that I just lurve about digis is how adaptable they are! Like I said, the first set was printed eensy-weensy…but this star is now almost 4 inches wide! Can’t do that with the red stuff!The flames you see in the background are from Heidi Swapp. I simply stamped and embossed them in clear. I wanted them to be subtle, so as to not take away from the star, which I pop dotted, by the way. This is one of the banners. I photographed this before I wrote all of the mushy stuff on the inside, but I wanted you to get an idea of the size. I thought it looked pretty rad popping out from the center. Here’s a close up. The photo is awful… I am really having a heck of a time with lighting lately. But at least you can see my shading. I used more Distress Inks here. See how far out it pops? My husband was pretty surprised to find this on the inside! He thought the whole card was super cool. And this is the card my son made! He wanted to use the third and final freebie in this set. And didn’t he color and place it perfectly??? Ok…so I helped him color the banner a little, but he totally placed it there himself! He picked out the stamps, and the colors himself, of course! This is the back of his card. He loves to make cards! It’s so much fun to make them together. I hope we can always do art projects together!

You're such a good mommy!! I haven't let the little guy play with my stamps yet; although yesterday he found my Bombshell pirate girl and had her 'walking' around my stamp cave!
Your card is fabulous!! I love the use of the banner in the center of the fold – too clever!
