Welcome to our hop! I’m sure that you will find lots of inspiration from our international team. It’s time for the Creation Station blog hop – You’re the Man. Today we’re featuring projects that could be made for Father’s Day or another “you’re the man” kind of day.
Creation Station Blog Hop – You’re the Man
Life at my house has been extra crazy the last few weeks. So I created for today with that in mind. My card is super simple and is in fact a new twist on and old idea.
This card started with a Soft Sky base. A strip of Garden Green was cut with the Fringe Scissors and added along the bottom.
The Delightful Dijon golf tee was cut using the punch on the Gift Bag Punch Board. A 1 3/8″ Circle punch cut the golf ball which was then embossed with the Decorative Dots folder.
And the clouds are from the new Tree Builder punch. I’m not sure you can see it in the photo but, I’ve added a few swirls on the clouds with a Soft Sky Stampin’ Write marker.
Next, I went for a twist on a favorite — the Curvy Keepsake Box.
The man at my house can often be seen wearing a baseball cap. So, I thought this might be a cute way to give his Father’s Day present. Shhh! don’t tell him!
The box and hair were cut from Chocolate Chip and then I cut one more panel in Whisper White for the face.
The cap is in Real Red. There were partial panels cut from Real Red for the sides of the cap. The bill is a 1 3/8″ Circle punch. and the crown was made by tracing the outside of the “handle” part of the die. I added White Gel pen stitching and a Real Red Candy Dot button to the top of the cap.
His face was drawn with a Project Life Journaling Pen and the eyes were colored in with a Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker.
My daughter tells me he looks like Ash from Pokemon.
Let me know if you’d like a video for assembling this cute guy.

OMGosh – brilliant use of the punch board for making the golf tee, Sara! I love your baseball-capped Curvy Keepsake box -I’d love to see a video of how you put it together. Thanks for the inspiration today!

Deb ~ thank you for the lovely comment. I was feeling much less than brilliant with this hop’s offerings.
