Day 3 of Super Samples from the April Clear Dollar Stamps Product Parade!!!

Another day of samples ... just for you! :) These sets ... and more ... just released at Clear Dollar Stamps!!

We're going to focus on the guys today. We have some super sets just for them!

My hubby LOVES puns, so this stamp is particularly great for him. "You're a Wheely Great Dad" is a fun stamp to add to a card with a car image. I chose the VW bug because our family loves playing the "Punch Buggy" game ALL the time! :)

Card Recipe:
Stamps - A Wheely Great Dad, Volkswagon Bug Paper - black, white, dp (the Paper Studio) Ink - black, blue, white Copics - G21, G24, G28, B34, C3, C7 Accessories - Glitter pen, MM tagmaker, brads, Cuttlebug, Gears folder, pop dots

The next set ... well, I got a little crazy with it. I ended up making 2 cards. I couldn't stop and couldn't decide which one to use!

The set is called For Our Men. It's got different names that men are called - father, son, uncle, etc., as well as a couple of things to add to those. Yes, I know that both cards say 'son.' Remember, I have a Marine! I always have a need to send something his way. :) I kind of have him on my mind a lot. :)

I thought that an explosion box - or a scrapbox - would be a great gift for my hubby to get for Father's Day. Inside, I placed a picture of each of our children, as well as a picture of him with all 3 kids together. I love making these. They have such a 'wow' effect on anyone that receives them. The stamp set was perfect for this project!!
