Hi Friends! kel here today to share a fun card for a special friend!
I’m using the new Dad’s Tools stamp set to make this card. This set is HUMONGOUS and I absolutely love that it’s a multi-step stamp… the tools layer over each other for depth in the image which you can totally see below with the hammer heads.
And the sentiment!! SO MUCH FUN!! I actually had a really hard time deciding which sentiment I wanted to use because there are soooo many to choose from! So my only complaint is that I don’t have enough inks/ink colors. hahaha!! What a thing to complain about, right?!? I scrounged around my stash for browns, and used the greys from the Gazebo pack (light grey, Manatee) and the Tropical pack (darker grey, Hippo) of the Lawn Fawn ink cube sets. I think the browns from the Coffee Break Mini Ink Pad Cube set would have worked if I had them! (P.S. – I TOTALLY have an excuse to need to go out and buy more inks haha!!)
The last thing I did was stamp out the sentiment with my Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and then mat it on some dark grey cardstock.
But a hint for anyone that doesn’t have a lot of variety in shades – Stamp with the same color!! I used the first two layers of the hammer head with Manatee and then did the last two layers in Hippo and it still had a lot of depth in it, so it’s not always necessary to have every shade (but it definitely is nice to have every shade!!)
