Celebrate the men who mean the most in your life with our exclusive Legendary Father’s Day stamp sets! The Someone to Look up To and Legendary Father’s Day sets will honor these important men in a “dapper” mixed with just the appropriate amount of “cute” way.

By pairing these legendary stamp sets with a few fun stamping and coloring techniques we were able to achieve some rather handsome results.

In the cards above, we used coloring pencils to add details to the hat on the left and the tie on the right. The filling of the shaker window is a mix made up of gold loose sequins and Sapphire cardstock confetti shapes cut using the Shaker Window & Confetti Thin Cuts (see how we used the leftover negative of the star confetti in a separate card, below). The shoes of the card on the left were stamped in VersaMark™ ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder to create a textured patterned background.

Heat embossing with white embossing powder was used to achieve the raised white sentiment on this other card, above, and shading with color pencils was once again used on the shirt of the card on the left, to create a more dimensional image.

If you’d like to learn how to achieve the beautiful color pencil shading we’ve shown you in a couple of these cards, follow along with Karen, our Creative Arts Manager, in the video below. She explains how to determine where and how to add your shading based on your “light source” and so much more!

Lastly, we promised you scrapbook pages and we are delivering!

For all of our scrappers out there, these gorgeous stamp sets are easily adaptable to pages and layouts, as well! Here you see that we’ve created a 6″ x 8″ page and a 12″ x 12″ page using both of the Father’s Day stamp sets. The large sentiment from the Someone To Look up To stamp set lends itself well as a title while the smaller icons of the Legendary Father’s Day stamp set add a touch of gallant charm to your memories.

Father’s Day is less than three weeks away! Prepare those meaningful cards and pages, today, and make Father’s Day unforgettable this year!

What to Do for Father’s Day?

Hurray for Father’s Day! That special guy you owe so much to gets his time in the limelight in just two weeks, and you want to make the day special. Here are a few pieces of inspiration to help spark some ideas of how to do just that.

First, the classic card. Don’t underestimate your power to please with a little bit of paper! With the help of the Cricut® Artfully Sent cartridge, you’ve got loads of manly card options at your fingertips. Achieve a rustic look with the help of Jackson Background & Texture (B&T) papers or the cards from the Picture My Life™ Jackson scrapbooking program.

Father's Day gifts

If you have a little something extra to give dad, many of the cards on the Artfully Sent cartridge are designed to hold gift cards. All you need to do is slip a gift card for his favorite hardware store inside and watch his eyes twinkle.

Another idea is to wrap his favorite treat in a box cut from the Cricut® Artiste cartridge and let his grandkids make the special delivery. The packaging will be cute, but not quite as cute as the scene of grandpa hugs, kisses, and inescapable tickling that will surely follow.

For those of you not feeling that Cricut® projects are the right fit for your special guy, try a handy My Crush® For Him book instead. You can fill up each page with love and memories meant just for him.

Big or small, your handmade gifts for dad will make him smile. Have fun putting your heart into something he’ll love!
