Father on the Open Sea

My husband's ideal day would be to be on a boat in the open sea.. our boat is on a lake that is too far for us to enjoy. 
 
So this card is ideal for my husband... the kids will have a blast giving it to him this Father's day...
what do YOU think?!? 
Leave me a comment and let me know..
Our Crumb Cake card stock (#120953) is the ideal base for this Epic Day This and That (#130814) Designer Series Paper.  The Map print in the honey comb pattern lent it to the Honeycomb embossing folder (#129378) and Big Shot (#113439). 
This Father stamp is from Amazing Family (#131907).  Stamping it with our Gumball Green ink (#126861) on the Naturals Ivory card stock (#101849) for a vintage and natural look.  Our Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker (Neutrals Stampin' Write Marker collection #131261) make it easy to accent the top half of the word.  This allows for an easy coordinating vintage look.
 
Tie it up... with our Early Espresso Baker's Twine (#123124).  Distressing the edges with our Stampin' Distress Tool (#127562) and then rubbing the edges with our Crumb Cake ink (#126975). 
Our The Open Sea (#128454) stamp set is uber vintage and masculine.  Stamping with Crumb Cake ink (#126975) and our Gumball Green ink (#126861).  The Aqua Painter pens (#103954) allow me to pull ink from a stamp pad and add color..
The Anchor stamp reminds me of vintage naval tattoos... I like the masculine and strong look of it.  It mimics the strength a good father will have.
Subtle mimicking, vintage accents and papers...
any man would love to receive this for his Father's Day!  The vintage looking paper is sure to have love written all over it.
 
Myyyy Dad and Pappa are now in heaven... I know that my husband is sure to enjoy this card.  Now, hmmm... my Father-in-law... hmm... lol.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
