Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Masculine Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?   We’re half way through the week already and heading to the weekend.  We’re expecting another rainy day here.  I’m not sure if Mother Nature knows it or not, but it’s winter.  We’re supposed to get snow in the winter not rain.  I really need a snow day to be able to craft all day while my family is shoveling the snow.

Onto my card for today.  I’ve got a masculine card for you using one of my favorite sets from the 2020 January-June Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card.

My colors are from the Global Design Project Challenge #229.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the As You See It Challenge #219.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I absolutely love these plaids in this DSP pack.  Perfect for masculine cards.

I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Crushed Curry Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper.  I cut the image out using my Stitched Nested Dies.  I adhered the die cut to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a strip of Garden Green cardstock across the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered the strip of Night of Navy cardstock along the bottom of the Garden Green strip using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.  I adhered the sentiment strip below the Night of Navy strip using Glue Dots.  Using the Coordination Nature’s Thoughts Dies I cut the feather  out of a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock and adhered it to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and Glue Dot.  I added a few gold Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! A Good Man Cling Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off 3 times, across the sentiment.  I adhered a strip of the Country Club DSP to the side of 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 fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in Garden Green Ink on the envelope front 3 times without re-inking.  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!!

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!!

Stampin’ Up A Good Man Father’s Day Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did you do anything funb?

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY!!!  The new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live. Is anyone as excited as I am???  You can order anything and everything tomorrow.  I can’t wait.  I’m hoping to be able to hop on before I have to head into work to get my order placed.  My list is so long it may send my credit card into shock.  If anyone has a list as long as mine and you are interested in an online host club, click here for more information.  Now, if there is anything you have been wanting that is retiring, today is the last day to get it.

I have a quick Father’s Day card for you today.  I used the new Stampin’ Up A Good Man Stamp Set and paired it up with some of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  I absolutely love stamp sets that have that sketched look.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a few challenges.  First is the  Festive Friday challenge #0035.  Here is their challenge.

I joined in with the Stampin’ Up! Only challenge #224.  Their challenge it Masculine

I also joined in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #223.  Here is their challenge.

I started by adhering a panel of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to a Balmy Blue panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image of the man carrying the little boy from the Stampin’ Up A Good Man Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink.  I colored the image in using my Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake, Ivory and Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Using my Triple Banner Punch I punched the bottom into a banner.  I adhered the banner to the matted DSP using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Bakers Twine around the top and tied a knot.

 

I adhered the panel to the front of a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a thins strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional and a Glue Dot.  I colored one of the Heart Epoxy Droplets in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Marker then adhered it to the right of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the man carrying the little boy image from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off 4 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from A Good Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on top of the stamped image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Balmy Blue 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 man carrying the little boy image from the A God Man stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on the envelope front.  I colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a piece 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!!
