Stamp It Blog Hop — A Good Man Father's Day

Hello my stamper and craftyfriends!  Welcome to your next stop on the May Stamp It Bog Hop. If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


I'm excited to share with you a mix of wonderful Stampin' Up! products that showcases a sneak peek of a new stamp set (A Good Man) tied with a retiring Designer Series paper (Best Route). The layout is a clean and simple one facilitating the colors of Gray Granite and Night of Navy...both are feature colors in the designer paper pack.


I love the silhouette image of the man holding a child and couldn't bare to color it, so I brought in color with one of the patterns from the Best Route designer paper pack.  It was just the right amount, I think. 

The sentiment stamped in Night of Navy could really portray a number of occasions to give to the special man in mind...Father's Day, Birthday, or Promotion/Congratulations.


COOL TIP WITH PAPERS — I love to use up scraps.  The matted Gray Granite layer to the image and the thin strip of Night of Navy Best Route designer paper were both in my scrap bag, but ended up complimenting the layout.  To give a finished look to any papers or layers that meet up, think about using a thin strip of cardstock to overlay or, in this case, wrap some Night of Navy Medium Baker's Twine around that section.
