June Kre8tors Blog Hop Dads & Grads

Welcome back to the Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you are joining us for this Dads & Grads themed hop! Be sure to scroll down to the Roll Call List to hop along to the next demonstrator for some wonderful inspiration!

I am SUPER excited about my project today because it’s colorful, fun, and DIFFERENT from anything I’ve done! The bundle I’ve used is called Sailing Home and includes the cling mount stamp set along with the Smooth Sailing dies. This sea-worthy set was the first item I purchased from our new annual catalog, and I’m so glad because it’s been amazing!

I tried to replicate the sailor’s knot in the stamp set on the front of my card for a little added something. This is a very special card for a very special man in my life; my father. He’s been my true North, for sure! Teaching me right and wrong, showing me how to be independent and strong.

He is also a fan of tie-dye, so I thought the vibrant and colorful background was perfect for him. This card features a technique that I haven’t used before. I’m not sure if it has an official name, but let’s just call this the Partial Die Cutting technique.

Want to see how it’s done? Check out the video below, and then come back and hop along to see more amazing inspiration for this Dads & Grads themed hop!

  1. Wonderful Card Melissa! I love the Partial Diet Technique you used. It really sets off the Lighthouse.

  2. The very first thing I was drawn to was your double knot! I just made a project (not using Sailing Home) and I wasn’t impressed with my single version. So, of course now that I just received the Sailing Home products, I want to go make a card with your knot. I also love how you kept the lighthouse as part of the circle. Adding this to the CASE list!
