DesignTeamHeadshots-LorenaCantoHey everyone! Lorena here with a new installment of our Five for Friday feature. June is almost here, and that means many of you will soon be celebrating Father’s Day, so I thought a little tribute to all daddies was in order. Today, I chose images that either spoke to my heart, made me laugh or sparked ideas for Father’s Day cards and gifts. Enjoy!  
  1. A beautiful image. I think this one doesn’t need words… Such a strong and meaningful caption!

  1. I love this hammer gift idea! It’s perfect for the Mr Fix It All in your life and the perfect complement for this gift would be (guess it?) a handmade card with our Hey Mr stamp set. It has the perfect images for Father’s Day!

  1. Many men have a sweet tooth, and this cupcakes fit the bill perfectly for the celebration. I’ll have one myself, please ;)

  1. Baking is not your thing? I’ve got you covered, too! Here’s another sweet and super easy idea that can be perfectly replicated with our Bowtiful stamp set, Bowtiful Additions stamp set and Bowtiful dies.

  1. Finally, a gift that made me laugh. I think one of the best bonds that can develop between a father and his children is the sense of humor.

The occasion, of course, calls for a card! I know many crafters struggle when it comes to masculine cards. Want my opinion? Stop worrying! Men won’t notice that the cardstock doesn’t coordinate perfectly with that enamel dot, they won’t notice that super duper tiny ink smudge, they won’t notice that you didn’t use the latest and greatest and trendiest stamp set. Instead, what they will notice is that their beloved daughter, granddaughter, wife, daughter in law or whatever is giving them a handmade card crafted with love. That’s the only thing that matters :) That said, here’s my card for today. It’s a one layer card! father card 1 I combined the tools, stars and “Dad” sentiment from Hey Mr stamp set with the solid scribble from Doily Square stamp set and the “It’s your day!” from Congrats stamp set. That scribble is SO perfect for grounding a sentiment or other images! father card 2First, I stamped the scribble and the sentiment. Then I masked the scribble and stamped the tools and stars (Waffle Flower inks used: 1/New Leaf, 13/Malibu and 16/Sunshine) As a last touch I glittered the bigger stars using a silver Wink of Stella pen. The glitter doesn’t show well in the pics, but it’s there! Thank you so much for stopping by and happy weekend! – Lorena Thank you for sharing with us today, Lorena! We love that you mixed our newest sets with Hey Mr. Stamp Set from our very first release! :) You are so right about what guys care about a card! LOL Find time to create and make something today!

Introducing Hey Mr. Stamp Set

With Father's Day approaching, it is appropriate to include a Guy set in the release, right? This set came together pretty quickly and instantly became my husband's favorite, haha! I know that I will reach for it a lot for the guys in my life.

Meet Our Design Team!

DesignTeamHeadshots-MaySukyongPark
My name is May Sukyong Park. I was born and raised in South Korea, and moved to beautiful Southern California with my wonderful husband in 2009. I had not enjoyed any arts and crafts until I was first introduced to stamping by my friends in 2010. Then I started scrapbooking and slowly moved in to making cards. It became my biggest hobby where I have found my passion when I started my blog in 2012. I love to create clean and simple cards based on creative designs and unusual ideas. I'm so thrilled and honored to be a part of this amazing design team that Nina has put together for Waffle Flower Crafts.

My first visit to May's blog was back in 2012, when I followed a pingback to her blog where she credited and linked to mine. I recognized her talent in a millisecond. There is always something fresh and clever in her cards. We didn't have any direct communication until I invited her to join the team. I'm so glad I did. The more I know her, the more I like her. Ready for some fresh air? Visit May's Blog: Mayholic in Crafts and connect with her on the following sites:
