Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. How has everyone’s week started off? Ours has started with a HUGE snow storm. I’ve learned not to believe weather forecasts until they happen, I guess they were right this time. I went into work yesterday, even though the store was closed, to get my bills done and caught up on my work. The walk in was bad, but the walk home was horrible. I couldn’t see the snow was coming down so hard and nothing was plowed or shoveled. That was the best workout I’ve ever gotten just walking to and from work. The snow was at my knees at 1pm yesterday when I walked home and it’s still coming down this morning. This makes up for not having any snow last year. I’ll be heading back into work this morning to finish everything up since I had to leave early yesterday.
I have a masculine card for you today. I always seem to struggle with masculine cards, but every once in a while something will pop in my head and I run with it. Here’s my card for today.
I used the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set for today’s card.
I started by adhering a panel of the Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.
On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Ivory and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Seal.
On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I cut the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies from a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the bird out using my Dockside Dies and adhered it to the circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
On the inside I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink in the center of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Neutrals DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Basic White card base using Stampin’ Seal.
To finish my card I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of Neutrals DSP to the envelope flap.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
