Father's Day with Joy Clair

Today I have a double project for you! I have made TWO Father's day cards using Joy Clair Stamps. 

Check out all the great Father's Day ideas from Joy Clair's design team HERE!

This first card I made using a few new stamp sets:  Light House, Classic Father's Day and Life's A Breeze.

I began with my card base. I used a die to cut this flip card. I stamped my boat on the square flip with VersaFine Clair black ink and colored it with Leisure Arts Premium Colored Pencils I then blended it out with some Gamsol and some paper stumps. I cut some patterned paper with the card dies accessory dies and attached them to the card base.

I stamped the "Happy Father's Day" sentiment with black VersaFine Clair ink and added some faux enamel dots.  Lastly, I added some details on the art part of the card with some white gel pen and some Glossy Accents. I let it dry and I was done with card number one.

I made another Father's Day card with Joy Clair and their fun sentiment stamp set called, "Hello Sentiments".  I use this set all the time for my sentiments. It covers just about every holiday and also some "just because" holidays.

Since I have 2 Father's to make cards for Father's day I made this tool one. My Father in-law is a handy guy and this card is perfect for him.  I used some tool dies I had on hand. Die cut them with some brown card stock and some silver shinny paper.

I stamped the words "happy Father's Day" with the "Hello Sentiments" stamp set from Joy Clair and black ink using my MISTI to get the words straight.

After I cut out all the tools I arranged them on the stamped card, glued them down and I was done!!

I hope you like my versions of  Father's Day cards! I think they came out so cool!
Happy Crafting!


  1. Wow! Fabulous! I love both card! Great inspiration!

  2. Love both of these cards. My son likes sailing--love the flip feature. My husband is handy with tools--perfect card design for him.

  3. Terrific masculine cards! Great card layouts and I love the "extra" touches of the flip card and silver card for the tools.

  4. Fabulous and inspiring cards for Father's Day. Joy Clair stamps are awesome, and you've really showcased them beautifully.
