Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air CAS Birthday

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  We’re halfway through the week already and the weekend is just around the corner.

I have a CAS masculine birthday card for you today using another great set from the 2020 January – June Mini Catalog. I know how we all struggle with masculine cards and this set made it really easy for me.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from the Fab Friday Skitch Challenge #185.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired from “Just Us Girls” Challenge #528.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #155.  Their theme is “Birthday Wishes”.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Night of Navy card base using Snail.  I adhered a panel of the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the reverse mountain image from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink across the panel, stamping off once.  I turned the image around and stamped just below the  first image using Gray Granite Ink.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the flying birds image from the Mountain Air stamp set 3 times in Night of Navy Ink above the mountains.

I stamped the cloud image from the Mountain Air stamp set on the top of the panel in Night of Navy Ink stamping off twice.  I colored the moon/sun in using my So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the bottom of the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountains.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  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 mountain image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Gray Granite on the bottom of the envelope front.  I stamped the landscape tree image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Garden Green Ink below the mountain image.  I stamped the bird image from the Mountain Air stamp set in Night of Navy Ink 3 times above the mountains.  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! 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.
