For it’s ONE.. TWO.. THREE strikes, you’re out at the ‘ole ball game!

The new Hat’s Off Bundle is perfect for any hat lover in your life!



My husband doesn’t really wear hats much, but he does love his San Francisco Giants! It was a lot of fun playing with the Hat Builder dies to make his Father’s Day card this year.



I also pulled in the stamp and baseball die cut from my May Paper Pumpkin Box: Batter Up! Unfortunately, this whole box isn’t available any longer but the refill kit is, and you can order that if you’re a current Paper Pumpkin Subscriber. The refill does not include the stamp set.

I used some of my favorite tools on this card! What are your favorite tools?

My Stamparatus made it a piece of cake to line up my  repeating sentiment along the side of my card layer. I stamped in Smoky Slate ink onto a Smoky Slate card stock mat and then layer it onto a piece of Basic Black card stock and that onto a Pumpkin Pie card base.

My blending brushes gave wonderful shading to my hat and S F accents. I die cut the hat out of Smoky Slate card stock and I used Basic Gray ink to add darker dimension. I blended Pumpkin Pie ink onto my Pumpkin Pie letters, die cut using the Playful Alphabet dies.



Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project! My next play with this set will be a cub scout hat card for my nephew. I’m also seeing a fun mermaid hat card for my niece in my future. She loves hats and mermaids. It’s an interesting combination! I’ll be sure to share them with you all, here.
