I just ran across this beautiful sentiment which is a Freebie offered by Ginger’s House and wanted to share it with you. I think this would be perfect to use on cards and scrapbooks, but I can also envision it on a piece of wall art. I’m thinking of using some of Claudine Helmuth’s Sticky Back Canvas along with stamps, inks, paint & embellishments for a wall hanging.

If you enjoy this sentiment as much as I do, hop on over to Ginger’s blog and download this for your next project.  As always, don’t forget to leave a word of thanks for Ginger’s creativity and generosity in offering everyone this free sentiment. Until next time… Have a blessed day!

I saw a free Father’s Day digital download over at “Just Something I Made” and knew immediately what I wanted to do with the fabulous images from Cathe.  Even though this was a post from a year ago, these images are timeless and very appropriate for cards, bags & tags for this Sunday’s special event, Father’s Day.  The construction of the Father’s Day card is pretty straightforward, I just printed out the images on Kraft cardstock, cut out the part of the collage that I wanted to use, added a few layers, a bow and red heart and the card was exactly how I wanted it.

Making the gift bag was another story.  I wanted to print the images directly on paper from a brown lunch bag.  I never tried that before so it took some trial and error, but after 2 tries I succeeded.   As a side note, I discovered this type of paper is too thin to run through my printer on its own, so I adhered it at the top (where I feed it into the printer) with some removable adhesive (Dotto).  One other noteworthy item, it seems cheap lunch bags drink a lot of ink during this process, so I won’t make a habit of using this type of paper.  After printing I reconstructed a bag (which took a little bit of finessing).  Once that part of the project was complete, the rest came together easily.  I used the same heart punch as on the matching card, but used all 3 of the punchouts this time.  The bottom of the topper was made simply by using my scalloped decorative scissors from Stampin’ Up! which I’ve had in my craft room for years.  A small black button, a dash of DMC embroidery floss, some fussy cutting & layering for the sentiment and the bag was complete.

I still have more than half of the collage images leftover to use again next year or the year after.

For someone like me who was very reluctant to use digital stamps, I am now a huge fan. This card uses a combination of rubber stamps & digital stamps. I enjoy vintage clipart, so using a vintage digital stamp is the best of both worlds. I love the little boy in vintage attire playing baseball. The free digital stamp is from Digital Two For Tuesday. The circle stamp “4 today” is a free digital stamp from Bird’s Cards.

Other supplies used:

Prismacolor Pencil
Baseball & Bat image from Stampin’ Up!
