Hello! This is Jen from Newton‘s Nook Designs and I’m super excited to share some cute golf cards with you today using our new Winston’s Tee Time stamp set! With Father’s Day just around the corner I know there are so many Dads out there who would love these cards!

First up I have this “Tee-riffic” card featuring our bear, Winston! I started out by stamping “DAD” from the Winston’s Tee Time stamp set repeatedly on an angle on a piece of white cardstock. I used a small ruler to help line up the words and stamped most of them with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and a few with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add a pop of color.

I stamped the image of Winston with his golf bag on a piece of Canson watercolor paper with Archival Jet Black ink. I colored him using Derwent Inktense Pencils and the Tim Holtz Detailer Water Brush. Doesn’t he look so dapper in his golf clothes? I trimmed out the image of Winston with the coordinating Winston’s Tee Time Die set

Before I added Winston to the card base, I created a mini scene for him in a circle of kraft cardstock. I added a layer of grass that I cut out using our Land Borders Die Set to add a fun detail. Then I added this to the card along with the “Just fore you!”from the Winston’s Tee Time stamp set, embossed with white embossing powder

For the second card, I also used our Winston’s Tee Time stamp set. I stamped Winston with his golf putter on a piece of Canson watercolor paper with Archival Jet Black ink. I colored him using Derwent Inktense Pencils and the Tim Holtz Detailer Water Brush. I love the look these pencils give with their vibrant colors! I also stamped and colored the flag pole and golf ball. I trimmed out the images with the coordinating Winston’s Tee Time Die set

I thought Winston should have a hilly course to play on so I grabbed our Land Borders Die Set to cut out a couple of hills. This die set is so awesome for creating scenes for our critter stamps! To customize this card for Dad, I created the sentiment “Dad You’re Tee-riffic” using words from the Winston’s Tee Time stamp set. I stamped DAD in blue to make it stand out using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Then I thought it needed a few clouds in the sky so I added in some clouds stamped with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using a cloud from our Winston Takes Flight stamp set

I hope you enjoyed golfing with Winston today!
