I always enjoy using my paper crafting supplies and tools to create something fun with my kids. I love the big smile they have when they get to say “I made that!” For Father’s Day, I decided to help my children make stamped cards to give to their dad on his special day.
To make sponge shapes to stamp with, I bought regular kitchen sponges and die cut them using the Fuse Creativity System®.
I die cut various shapes and sizes, and the smaller ones are perfect for young toddlers to hold and stamp with.
I trimmed around the negatives of some of the die cuts to use as stamps as well. Using the Easy Grip Scissors I also cut some of the waste bits into small triangles and squares. These are great to stamp and create a background.
I precut some cream cardstock to fit a card front using the Card Making Bypass Trimmer. This trimmer is smaller and more compact in size, so it’s perfect for card making.
Then I pulled out the paints to prep for help from the kids.
And then I let the kids have fun with the stamps!
Once they were done, I added a sentiment to each piece of artwork and adhered them onto cards.
Now we have simple, fun and colorful Father’s Day cards to give to dad – and my kids had so much fun making them!
