Creation Station Blog Hop - Father's Day

"Hello!" to all the happy stampers joining us today on this blog hop! We've got new styles and new faces joining us in the group now. While we are sad to see some of our members go, we warmly welcome the new ones and hope they enjoy creating with this fun bunch of stampers. 

For this time our options were -  
  • Use any new stamps from the new catalog
  • Father's Day themed projects

Couldn't be better timing, as I needed to make a few Father's Day cards and I had just received a box of new goodies on Thursday so I was good to go on both!

The stamp set at the top of my "must have" list was the Sprinkle of Life set. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set! The words, the versatile images, the coordinating punch, the fact that $3 of each set sold gets donated to the Ronald McDonald House charities - you just can't wrong with this one! I used two of the new In-Colors as well, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe to create this cute little cupcake. I used the little leaves in the set to create "confetti" around the cupcake highlighting it even more on the 2 1/2" Very Vanilla I punched out. I used the new stamp set, Friendly Wishes for the background. And the strip angled across got texturized with our new Brick Embossing Folder. Love it and the new size too - 6 x 6"! Inside it says, "Happy Father's Day!"

Up next, I had to make a doughnut shaped card. Couldn't help myself! The cute set, Sprinkles on Top and the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper inspired me for this cute and easy card. Using our wonderful Circle Framelits, this card was a cinch to make! I used Soft Suede for the base, but wanted to highlight our fabulous new In-Colors - Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon for the frosting and sprinkles along with Very Vanilla. There's even a bite missing! I used our Scallop Circle Punch for that. A simple little birthday tag using the words from the B.Y.O.P. stamp set completed this delicious little treat!

I hope you enjoyed both cards today! They will be on display at my Open House next weekend. Lots more stamping and creating to do for that! Depending on where you started on this blog hop, you can go back and revisit the other Jen's  superb creativity or you can hop along to see what delightfulness Jennifer has to share with you today! Happy Stamping!
