Father's Day BBQ

I saw He's Just Not That Into You tonight. It wasn't all that great, but it did make me forever grateful that I met my Mike ten years ago at 19 years old. I only had to suffer through the dating world for a short while. I can't imagine what it would be like!

So, I've started making Dad's Day cards! Woo! This first card is for a BBQ loving Dad.

I edged the circles and patterned paper with charcoal chalk ink to make it look as if it was charred from the grill! Fun!
I colored in the grills with copics, punched them out and popped them up on foam dimensionals. I spelled out "happy father's day" because I just got a Father's Day stamp today finally! I actually won this great Dad stamp set on the Hero Arts blog. I can't wait to ink it up!
Paper: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm), Neenah Paper Classic Crest (solar white), Friendly Forest Scrap Pack (red graph paper)
Ink: Ranger Adirondack (pitch black), Color Box Fluid Chalk (charcoal)
Stamps: A Muse (grill), Papertrey Ink (simple alphabet)
Etc: corner rounder, 1 3/8" circle punch, Copics (C-1, R27, T-5)
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
kelly marie


  1. I'm with you- I'm so glad I didn't have to do the dating scene for very long. I can't say that I got through totally scar free, but it wasn't too painful!

    Thanks for reminder that I need to get on Father's Day cards! Love yours.

    Oh, I hope you do get your own house someday. I'm sure it is a totally different housing market in LA!

  2. Love this card. That grill stamp is adorable. This is perfect for Father's day.

    I am so glad you found your Mr. Right at a young age. I had years of dating too many Mr. Wrongs before meeting my Mr. Right. I do appreciate him all the more though :)

  3. what a great idea! I have to dust-off mine and put them to use on a cupcake too:)
