This is the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card we are making. I used neutral colors but you can use any color combo you wish. I love how versatile this set is. There are numerous ways to create with it! I will show you some examples later in this post.

To begin, take of the three splatter stamps from their storage sheet. You are using all but the smallest one in  your set.

Here we have two new products! I always try our products out first so when I say I like something, I REALLY DO! I use them myself! We have two new stamp blocks and I LOVE THEM! I love the grip, the smoothness (is that a word?) and comfort of the block! We have others as well if you would like to check them out here.

Although I don’t need to use one block per stamp as one block is enough, I am using them for demonstration purposes.  You will either want to place whichever stamp you wish to work with first or you can utilize the blocks you may have in your stash and use three of them. I am using my 2.5″, 3.5″ and 4.25″ Inch Round Acrylic Stamping Block with Alignment Lines and Finger Grips as well.

For this example of the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card,

we are making a smaller version of it. Instead of using the entire stamped image on the paper, I am using smaller amounts of it. This still allows me to create the same color effect but we don’t have as much paper area to work with.

We are going to start with the Toffee Crunch Memento Ink. Place your stamp on your acrylic block and ink  your stamp. As you can see I placed the stamped image a little off the edge of the paper. This will give a great effect of the color but not overload the paper with one image.

When I am creating with repeating images, I like to create in odd numbers. Here I used three because it is a larger image.

Now we are going to be using Desert Sand Memento Ink for the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card.

Place your stamp on your acrylic block. Ink your stamp and stamp your image on your paper.

As you can see, I didn’t place my stamp on my ink completely. I am going to show you how I fixed it. It’s not perfect but it does the job 🙂

I reinked the image and restamped it on top of the image that was missing ink.

It worked out pretty well. Still a little lighter on the inside than I would like but it looks OK. Repeat stamping the same image five times in various locations on the paper. I could have restamped it again but was afraid it would look a bit too much so I am happy with it like this.

Place your smallest stamp on your acrylic block. Ink your stamp and stamp your image on your paper. I stamped this image seven times in various places.

This is what it looked like once I was finished with the three colors. What do you think?

Now we are taking out the Spring and Summer Holiday Celebrations Stamp Set. We are using the Happy Father’s Day stamp.

Place your sentiment on your block and ink it. Stamp your sentiment on your paper. I usually do a few extra so I have them on hand when I may need them.

Take out your 1.25″ circle punch and punch out your sentiment for the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card.

Remove one side of the protective paper on your foam square or dot. Place your foam dot or square on the back of your sentiment and set aside.

Add adhesive to the back of the background stamped paper.

Adhere the background stamped paper to your solid colored paper mat.

Place adhesive on the back of the solid colored mat.

Adhere the mat to the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card base.

Apply adhesive to the back of the mat strip of paper.

Adhere to the card front approximately 2/3 down on the card as shown.

Take your sentiment and remove the protective back paper from the foam square or dot. Adhere the sentiment to your card front as shown.

Here is the A7 amd A2 version of the same card! You are done with the Tie Dye and Splatter Fathers Day Card!

Here is another card I created using the

A Creative Journey with Melissa Tie Die and Splatter Stamp Set and the A Creative Journey with Melissa Spring and Summer Holiday Celebrations Stamp Set. If you would like to see the super easy blog post and tutorial, check it out here.

    Hi Melissa
    Sorry I’m so late watching this one! I’m so busy with the boys, it’s hard to be able to have some me time. This is a great stamp set. Like you said, you can use the paint splat/tie die for pretty much any occasion. I’m always on a budget so one stamp set that can create SO many cards is right up my alley 😃 I have a silly question…what size mats do you use? Do you have a list of the sizes for each size card? I’ve tried to figure it out and mine are always so off!! It’s bad! It’s late but Happy Fathers Day to your hubby. Take care. Your the best, you always make me smile.

      Hi Robyn, The smaller card I use are A2 or 4.375 x 5.75″and the larger is an A7 or 5.25 x 5.75. The mats for the cards vary depending on how many layers and the style. Typically, I cut them 1/4 or 1/2 inch smaller than the area I am placing them on. I hope that helps 🙂

    That tie dye set is so fun, and there are so many ways to use it. You always give the best tutorials, with lots of tips for card making. I like the way you used the stamps to make patterned paper in the perfect colors. Following by email and on Youtube too!

    Using stamps to make a background is a great way to stretch supplies and to get just the right colors. Those brown shades are perfect for a fathers day card and I also like the red, white and blue design. I follow on Youtube as StampNK, and by email. Thanks for all the tips!

    Loving the Tie Dye and Splatter set so much! How fun to show this design in different color combos for a totally different look each time. I had my share of tie-dye in the day, and even helped my daughter’s girl scout troop make tie-dyed tee-shirts when she was about 10. The masculine color combo makes it looks modern and clean…so versatile! I follow on every social media site, and by email too.
