Masculine-ing up a pink card for Father’s Day video tutorial by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0


Hi, I need a card to send my Dad for Fathers Day (June 20th) and since he loves gardening and flowers I thought this card would be perfect – but it’s pink.  I decided to challenge myself and make a more masculine friendly card with the same Blossoms and Thoughts stamp set, and the new Beach Retreat ink colours by Catherine Pooler Designs.

I toyed with the idea of adding a few orange or blue sequins – mixing sequins from the Seattle mix and the Mystic mix. What do you think? Maybe three sequins just to add a little bit of sparkle??

We have three great brands of blending brushes – Catherine Pooler’s, Trinity Stamps’s and Picket Fence Studios.  I currently use the Picket Fence Studios brushes for the brighter and darker ink colours, and the Trinity Stamps blending brushes for the lighter colours. (Don’t forget to grab the Blending Brush Scrubber – this really helps to clean your brushes when they get too full of ink).

Share your Father’s Day cards (and other card makes) at the Paper Tree Tribe (have you joined our tribe yet?) And find all the products I use for today’s Father’s Day card in the shop.
