Pool and Father’s Day Card

Today we have a guest stamper, Janet Smith, fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and my sister!  She was asked if she could create a pool and Father’s Day card for someone and this is what she came up with.  I think it’s pretty awesome.

These balls have already fallen into the pockets!


Main products Janet used: 

Builder Owl Punch

Builder Owl Punch


Card stock color scraps used for the billiard balls and cue stick:

A few TIPS from Janet:

  • Basic Black card front:  8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Emerald Green layer:  5-1/4″ x 4″
    • “pockets” punched with the 1/2″ circle punch
  • Pool balls:  punched with 1/2″ circle punch
    • colored layer on balls punched out with 1/2″ circle punch and then little bits were punched (nipped) out from each circle creating the ‘stripes’.
    • ball numbers are the eyes from the Owl Builder Punch
  • Cue Stick: skinny strip of Crumb Cake with a little scrap of Basic Black card stock; tip of cue stick was colored with Chalk Marker.
  • Happy Father’s Day greeting was from the May 2014 (yes really) Paper Pumpkin kit.  There’s one in the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit as well.

I don’t think there’s much doubt that this card is celebrating dad’s pool table skills.    And it was made just for him….. a special dad’s Pool and Father’s Day Card.  What do you think???  If you’ve made a special card that you’d like shared with many, send it to me via email (blythe@stampingwithblythe.com) along with a few stamping tips.  You’ll receive full attribution and lots of smiles from readers.

  1. I happen to see this in person (my sister commissioned it from Janet) and it is wonderful! When it was taken out of the envelope there were many oohs and aahs!
