Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Father’s Day

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends and Happy Father’s Day!!  How is everyone’s weekend going?  By the time you read this, my daughter and I will be elbow deep in cooking brunch for my husband.  Little does he know he’s got another surprise coming to him this morning.  I bought him an outside pizza oven for Father’s Day and he’s making his own dinner, LOL.  He loves making home made pizza and he usually makes it on our grill.  I thought I would treat him to a wood burning pizza oven and I’m sure he will be loving it.  He makes his own dough and all.  I told all my cashiers once he tries it I will have them all over for him to cook for them and there’s enough room to social distance in my backyard.

Since it’s Father’s Day I thought it was only appropriate to make a Father’s Day card.  My daughter needed one, so here’s what I made for her to give.  I don’t know about you, but I am loving the 2020-2022 In-Colors, so that’s what I used today.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #462.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Fab Friday Color Challenge #192 since I had used all the 2020-2022 In-Colors.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Cinnamon Cider card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the father/daughter image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal.

I embossed a Bumble Bee panel using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.   On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  I cut the sentiment into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Ribbon, that I tied into a knot, to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Best Year Cling Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider Ink below the 1st one.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink, stamping off twice, over the sentiments.  I adhered a strip of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 DSP to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Just Jade mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/daughter image from A Good Man stamp set in Cinnamon Cider Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Cinnamon Cider, Ivory, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the 2020-2022 In-Color 6 X 6 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. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and are able to spend some time with friends and family or just enjoy a relaxing day. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man and Some Blog Candy

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We are having one of the most gorgeous weekends here.  It’s been in the 70’s with only around 30% humidity.  I’m talking windows open, ceiling fans on all day and night.  Today is our ‘in person team meeting’, I’m really looking forward to stamping online with everyone.  I just have to go into work for an hour to relieve my cashiers and I have the rest of the day off.

For today’s card my niece asked me to make a Father’s Day card for my little nephews to give their dad, so I pulled out what I thought was the perfect set.  Here’s my card.

My design is from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #439.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #246.  Their Theme is ‘Father’s Day‘.

I started by adhering a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Seal.

On a Whisper White panel, which I cut using the largest square from the Layering Squares Die, I stamped the father and son image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock with the largest square from the Layering Squares Die and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the Misty Moonlight panel on an angle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the artwork to the top of the Misty Moonlight panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink.  I cut both ends of the strip using the Lovely Labels Pick a  Punch.  I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the sentiment 3 times and tied a knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few silver Metallic Pearls to the artwork and sentiment .

On the inside I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered it to the center of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the father/son image from the A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Ivory, Misty Moonlight and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!  Now onto the Blog Candy

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Does anyone have plans for the weekend?  I’ll be at work all day today.

I have a masculine card for you today using a new bundle coming in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog starting this Wednesday June 3rd, YAY!!!  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Global Design Project Challenge #242.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Cinnamon Cider card front using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered 2 strips of the new World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper to the top and bottom of a Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the embossed panel to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added the Antique Corners & Slides Embellishments to the 4 corners of the panel using Glue Dots.

I cut a panel of Misty Moonlight cardstock using the World Map Dies.  I also cut a panel of the new Brass Foil Sheet using the detailed globe from the World Map Dies.  I adhered the detailed globe to the Misty Moonlight die cut panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue then I adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front, across the globe, using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the ends only.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the ink pot image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom of the panel, stamping off once.  I stamped the quill image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off once, to the right of the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the globe image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the bottom front of the envelope.  I stamped the compass image from the Beautiful World stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off 2 times, next to the globe.  I adhered a panel of the World of Good Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  Products for my card will be available for purchase on Wednesday June 3rd.  Hope you are getting your shopping lists ready.  Enjoy your day.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Thank You By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today?  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge.  Here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Whisper White mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I then embossed the sentiment using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3rd).  I cut a panel of Night of Navy cardstock using the larger die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the larger die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink 3 times on a panel of Vellum cardstock and twice on a panel of Garden Green cardstock.  I cut the images out using my Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

I adhered a piece of the Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon with a small amount of Snail to the card front.  I arranged the fern the way I liked it on the card front.  I added a little Snail to the back of the matted sentiment  and pressed it down on the fern.  I lifted it all up and added some Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and fern and adhered it to the card front.  I added a few Night of Navy Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set below the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set on the envelope front multiple times without reinking the stamp.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  I had the day off yesterday and I was going through some items that will be retiring and I came across some things that I hardly used. One of the items was the Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack.  There are so many different things in this card pack, I couldn’t believe I didn’t used it more.  So I sat and made a whole set of masculine cards for you today using all different elements from this set that are retiring.  The only thing not retiring is the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set, YAY!!  I don’t have measurements since this is a card pack.  All my cards are either 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″ or 4 1/4″ X 11″ scored and folded at 5 1/2″.   My cards can be used as Birthday, Father’s Day, Encouragement or Anniversary cards.  Here are my cards for you.

This set makes great cards and can be used for scrapbook pages too.  I cut a 4 X6 panels down to fit my card base, added a sticker that came in the card pack and I was done.

There are 4″ X 6″ panels and 3″ X 4″ panels that I mixed and matched.  I added a little twine and the card was done. That easy.

Some I left the 3″ X 4″ panels and just added an embossed layer using the new Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder (available June 3).

Some I cut down using some of my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  This one uses some of the Come Sail Away DSP also, along with stickers that come with the pack.

This card I added some of the Come Sail Away DSP which coordinates perfectly with the panels, added a sticker and done.

This one I used the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, I added some of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and  the Sail Away Trinkets.

I embossed a panel using the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder to add some extra texture to this antique looking panel along with some of the Come Sail Away DSP.  I added some Linen Thread and a Sail Away Trinket and I was done.

This card I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies along with the Come Sail Away DSP and some stickers that came with the pack.  I added a few Metallic Pearls and my card was done. The possibilities are endless with this card pack.

The Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine and Sail Away Trinkets will all be retiring from the catalog.  Once they are gone that’s it.  If this is something that you love, grab them now.  The best part is they are ALL on CLEARANCE at a discounted price.  Don’t wait!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked all the cards I made using this card pack.  This is really an awesome set and there’s much more than I showed.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Boys/Men”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.  I made a Father’s Day Card for you.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.  I embossed a Whisper White strip of cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a Garden Green and Night of Navy piece of Twine  from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tall tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size oval out from the Layering Ovals Dies from Garden Green cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the leaf image.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size larger circle from the Layering Circles Dies from Garden Green cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front, overlapping the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Silver Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the left side of the panel, which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. Hit Previous to hop back to Mary’s blog or hit Next to head over to Sue’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

Good Tuesday Cinco De Mayo morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Today’s an extra special day for us demonstrators, we get to place our preorder for the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  That means that I will be ordering my catalogs and if you are one of my customers, you will be getting yours in the mail real soon.

For today’s card I made you a masculine card.  I figured you were getting tired of Mother’s Day cards, so I moved on to Father’s Day.  I don’t make nearly as many Father’s Day cards though.  Here’s my card for today.

I started by adhering a panel of the retiring Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I cut a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock an 1/8″ larger that the rectangle I used for a mat and adhered it to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added some Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine to the Sahara Sand using a little Snail.

I adhered the artwork to the Sahara Sand mat on top of the bakers twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added one of the Sail Away Trinkets to the end of the bakers twine using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment.  I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink above the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Sahara Sand mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope flap.  I adhered a panel of Come Sail Away 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

My colors were inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #336.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Cardz 4 Guys Challenge #242.  Their theme is ‘ On, In of By The Sea’.

I started by adhering a panel of Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to a Poppy Parade card base using Snail.  I stamped the bird image from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to the top of the panel.

I cut a panel of Peaceful Poppies DSP using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the panel.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored with my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I adhered the lighthouse image to the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered a piece of the Braided Burlap Trim to the back of the artwork using Glue Dots and then adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Frosted Epoxy Droplets, which I colored using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored using my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the bird image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the lighthouse.  I did not stamp a sentiment since I wasn’t sure what I wanted to use the card for yet.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Poppy Parade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set, which I colored using my Crumb Cake and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers, on the bottom front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through all our projects today.

Stampin’ Up! By The Dock for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. How is everyone doing today? Hope you are all staying heathly and safe. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects today. This week we had a Color Challenge, here are the colors we got to work with.

Here’s what I came up with for these colors.

My design is from Global Design Projects Sketch Challenge #234.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper to a Soft Suede card base using Snail.

On a Whisper White cardstock panel I stamped the shoreline and bird images from the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the boat and oars images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the frog image from the By The Dock stamp set in Old Olive Ink and colored it in using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using the Dockside Dies.  From a small panel of Old Olive cardstock I cut the shoreline from the Dockside Dies out.  I cut the die cut in half using my Paper Snips.  I cut a banner using my Banner Triple Punch from a small panel of Real Red cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the banner.  I embossed the banner using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I adhered the banner to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the boat, oars and frog to the stitched circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the shoreline die behind the artwork using Glue Dots.  I stamped a couple more of the birds from the By The Dock stamp set on the card front in Soft Suede Ink.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the boat image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set 3 times above the sentiment in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the boat and frog images from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the envelope front.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive, Dark Real Red and Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the bird image from the By The Dock stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, 3 times in the center of the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Tropical Oasis DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! A Good Man

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all moving right along through your week.

I’ve got a masculine card for you today that is very quick to make.  Here’s my card.

I played along with Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge #224.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.

I cut 2 mats out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies in Garden Green cardstock and Night of Navy cardstock.  I adhered the Night of Navy to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then adhered them to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink above the stamped image on an angle.  Using my Delightful Tag Topper I punched the top of the panel.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I took a small piece of Garden Green and a small piece of Night of Navy twine from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack and threaded it through the top of the tag.  I separated the twine to give it a frayed look.  I adhered the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel, stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiments from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink over the stamped image.  I adhered 2 strips of the Country Club DSP to either side if the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the image from A Good Man stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in using my Ivory, Mint Macaron and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club 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!!
