Retro Vibe Father's Day - Stampin' Up! Tune In

   I needed to get a variety of Father's Day cards made before I left for my trip last week and I hadn't used my Tune In bundle yet and it was high time it saw some ink (this bundle is on sale for an extra 10% off until June 30.  Don't wait to order your set!!).

  I pulled out what I thought worked for a masculine color combination; Azure Afternoon, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.  The card front is covered in a piece of Country Lace DSP in a very non-lacy almost twill like pattern in Smoky Slate.

  I used one of the Tune In dies to cut out the accent shapes along the side.  The die cuts out 5 of the shapes so I just cut several times in each color then mixed and matched as I went down the line.

  The tv is stamped in Azure Afternoon ink onto the same paper.  I used my Blends marker to highlight around the screen and fill in the legs for extra detail.  I stamped the antennae in Basic Gray and cut it and the knobs out and added them to the tv.  The screen is cut out and replaced with another one on which I stamped off some of the retro stars from the set.  I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie right over the top.  The whole piece is then popped up on the card front with dimensionals.

  I like the way you can add a lot of different sentiments to the screen and not just the ones that came with the stamp set; it's a decent size so you probably have a lot in your stash that would work for many different looks.  I didn't really have any embellishments that looked right so I kept it clean; it was for a guy after all!

  All of the products used to make this can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
