Make a Splash Stampin' Rewards Exclusive Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team

I used the Stamparatus to stamp images and sentiments from the following stamp sets: Sailing Home, Lined Alphabet, Itty Bitty Greetings, and Make a Difference.

Using Versamark Ink, I stamped on either a piece of Vellum Cardstock or Night of Navy Cardstock (as shown).

Once inked, I covered the images with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, shook off the excess, then set the stamped images with a Heat Tool.

After I finished embossing all of the images, I cut them out with the Smooth Sailing and Layering Alphabet Dies. I also used Paper Snips.


I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the spine of a composition notebook and Whisper White Cardstock to the front and back.
A Stamping Sponge helped add the layers of Night of Navy ink as shown.
Tip: Use a circular motion for the best effect and coverage when applying ink with a sponge.
I then used a Night of Navy Neutrals Stampin’ Write Marker to flick splatters of ink across the notebook.
I also flicked Versamark Ink Refill with a brush, covered it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set it with a Heat Tool.
Most items were adhered using the Black Stampin’ Dimensionals Combo Pack, while a few were adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I created my own coordinating envelope to slip the card inside. I doubled up on the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to make it sturdier.
I added the steering wheel from Sail Away Trinkets, silver Metallic Brads, and Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine to securely close the envelope.
To create the handmade envelope, I cut my 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper down to 8″ x 10″.
I scored it at 2-1/4″ and 6-3/4″. I then adhered the various selections of Designer Series Paper together using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
After that, I cut 1/4″ away from each side down to the 6-3/4″ score line (shown in the photo below). I folded the remaining tabs in and adhered them to the inside of the envelope to create the pocket for safekeeping of the Father’s Day card.
I wanted my card to be slightly more elongated than a regular-sized card, so I used a piece of Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock to create my 4-1/4″ x 6″ card base.
I used the same techniques as I did on the composition notebook to create the card base. I again embossed the sentiments and images.
I hope this gives you some inspiration to create some special gifts for the father and/or father figure in your life.
