Father's Day Patriotic 2018

Today I have 2 Father's Day cards to share with you. Since both my father and father in law are veterans I thought it would be nice to make them cards with a red, white and blue color scheme.  I used the same layout for these cards that I used for my Mother's Day cards this year.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards today!

Lottery Ticket Cake

Thanks for stopping by!!  Here's a quick post on a Lottery Ticket Cake I made with my daughter.


1 Cardboard Cupcake Stand (Party Supply Store)
20 Lottery tickets ($2 Tickets)
1 Balloon Weight Centerpiece
White Sparkle Paper Punched Out Stars (Large)
Black Paper Punched Out Stars (Small)
Silver Metallic Twist Ties
Large Black Scallop Circle Punch
Die Cut Numbers
Small Zots - Clear Adhesive Dots

Step 1) Put Cupcake Stand Together.

Step 2 - Tape Lottery Tickets to Cake Stand.  Tape each ticket to the scallop edge using two small pieces of scotch tape on the bottom of each side of the ticket.  
(I've tried this with double sided tape before.  It works best to use regular clear scotch tape)

5 Tickets on top tier
7 Tickets on middle tier
8 Tickets on bottom tier

Step 3 - Assemble Stars (adhesive dots work great to put the small stars on the large stars) 
adhere stars to silver metallic twist ties. 

Tape twist ties with stars to the inside of the scallops in between scratch off tickets.
Add some Stars to hang off the balloon weight
Adhere the Scalloped Circle with Numbers Cake Topper to the balloon weight

Father's Day Digital Hybrid Cards

I made two Father's Day cards using the Father's Day digital stamp I created a couple years ago. These were really quick to put together.

For the first card I printed out the sentiment, cut each letter out, put it on the card with foam dots above the Happy Father's Day sentiment.

For the second card I printed out the sentiment twice.  I cut the DAD tiles out of one and used foam dots to put them over the letters on the other printed sentiment.  I did  a better job lining up the tiles on that card because I used the original tiles as my guide.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cards today!

The sentiments I used are included below.
