Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Birthday

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone do anything fun?

A while back my neighbor asked me to make invitations for her husband’s 80th birthday party. I finally got around to making a sample to see if she liked it, but the sample is the birthday card that I’m going to give him. The invitations do not have ribbon or embellishments on them. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Bundle along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder for my card today.

I started by embossing a Sahara Sand card front using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the embossed panel to a Sahara Sand card bae using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to Early Espresso mats. I adhered the smaller layered panel to the longer layered panel using Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim around the layered panels and tied a knot. I adhered the layered panels to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink. I cut the image out using the All That Dies. I sponged Sahara Sand Ink around the edges of the die cut image using a Sponge Dauber. I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating you Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Early Espresso mat and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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! He’s All That

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? I hope your week has started out productive.

I have another Father’s Day card for you today. You all know how I struggle with masculine cards, and when I get an idea, I try to run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s The Man Suite Collection along for my card today.

I started by cutting 2 panels of He’s The Man Designer Series Paper in half diagonally. I adhered the 2 triangles to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a piece of the Sahara Sand 3/8″ ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack on the card front in a ‘Z’ form with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal.

From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock, I cut out one of the framed dies from the All That Dies. I adhered one of the die-cut sentiments from the He’s All That DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered 2 strips of the He’s The Man DSP to either side of the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked today’s masculine card and will give it a try. This He’s The Man DSP makes masculine cards so quick and easy to make. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Fun Fold Box Gift Card Holder Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. It’s Friday the 13th, do I have any superstitious stampers out there? How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card base. After trying to type how to put the card together, I realized that it is much easier to watch my video where I explain step by step.

Once I scored, folded and adhered the box together, I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 thinner panels of He’s The Man DSP to the inside of the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it together using Tear & Tape. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the front of the panel where it is adhered together.

The pack of He’s The Man DSP comes with 2 sheets of die-cut pieces. I adhered one of the pieces to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Dots to the die-cut panel

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a Cajun Craze mat inside the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I recommend not adhering the Basic White panel inside the card until after you sign it since you would be signing inside a box.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small corner image from He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corners of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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 will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!
