Hi Everyone, Its blog hop time again! Yay! This months theme is “For the Men/Boys” and I made a Father’s Day card with the Waves of Inspiration Stampset. This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Lillian Kemp.

To begin I used a card base of Basic White (all paper measurements can be found at the bottom of this post) I then feature the 3 blues from the new in-colors to highlight how well they go together. That and they are just so pretty for water! The stripes in the background are from top to bottom, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, and Tahitian Tide.

For the Stamped image, I used a panel of basic white with a Starry Sky mat. I used my Stamparatus to help me ink the wave stamp. I started with Starry Sky Ink, but I purposely left some spots blank, I then stamped directly over it with Orchid Oasis, and this gave some spots a pure Orchid Oasis look and added a tad of a purple hue to the rest of it. I then moved my paper down ever so slightly on my Stamparatus and stamped in Tahitian Tide to get the 3 colors on the same stamp. I stamped the birds in Momento black ink.

Last but not least I added the Father’s Day sentiment from the stampset home and garden on basic white cardstock in Momento black ink. Then I cut it out using the smaller of the two label dies from the coordinating, Waves Dies. I used Stampin’ Dimentionals to add a bit of height to make the sentiment stand out and placed a few Glossy Dots embellishments on the corners.
