Stampin’ Up! Two Types of Embossing Masculine Card Video Tutorial

Inspiration can come from just about anywhere.
Today’s card was inspired by a gift bag I saw in Target.  It was eye catching and I knew I wanted to replicate it somehow.

So, here’s what I came up with for last week’s Facebook Live Tutorial.

The card uses two types of embossing: Heat embossing and using an embossing folder and I love how it came out.

I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 pm EST to share a new card with you using (drum roll please…) hot off the press, brand new product from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!!!

Be sure to join me at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page.  If you catch it live, leave a comment of some sort, at the end I draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card!

If you ever miss a tutorial you can catch them all on my YouTube Channel.

For a look at how I made today’s card, check out the video below:

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday Card

This past Saturday was my dad’s birthday…

sighhhh….which means I had to make a masculine card…

They’re just so challenging.  No bling.  No fancy bells or whistles.
My go-to for masculine cards – simple layout, neutral colors.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder.

Next I took a pattern from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.  Over that I adhered a Whisper White circle which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I then used the Piece of Cake Bundle to create the cake and platter.  For the platter I stamped it in Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cardstock.  For the cake I stamped it in Versamark ink on Night of Navy cardstock and heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder.  Lastly I stamped the candles in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut them out.

Lastly I stamped the “time to celebrate” in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Night of Navy enamel dots to finish it off.

Enjoy!


FACEBOOK LIVE TUTORIAL TONIGHT!

I’ll be back tonight for a Facebook Live Tutorial.  Join me live at 7:30 pm EST, leave a comment, and at the end draw a name for someone to receive the card!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Thing Birthday Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.

Today is also Amy’s birthday!!!  So in addition to the sketch below we all made birthday cards in celebration of her!  Be sure to head over to her blog and give her some birthday love!

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I then used the Jar of Sweets Framelits and cut out a whole bunch of candy wrappers in Bermuda Bay cardstock to adhere around the card front.  (Keep in mind that the middle is covered and doesn’t need wrappers.)

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  I stamped the candy jars and candy from the Sweetest Thing Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Melon Mambo, Grapefruit Grove, and Bermuda Bay cardstock, cutting them out with the same framelits.

I then wrapped around a Grapefruit Grover ribbon and also added a few Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dots.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Thing – Sweet Card

The very first thing I ever bought from Stampin’ Up! was their Designer Series Paper.

I loved all the designs, high quality product, and how everything was color coordinated.

And something they match Designer Series Paper to framelits that cut images out – now that’s pure brilliance!

My card today starts off with Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took a panel of Pool Party cardstock and embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I used the new More Than Words Stamp Set (part of the newly released Sale-A-Bration coordinating product) and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.

I adhered over that a pattern from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  I took another pattern and used the Jar of Sweets Framelits to cut out the jar of goodies, adhering the one down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This paper combined with the framelits make this card easy peasy!

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

PRODUCT LIST:

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card

This is what I call a smorgasbord of a card.
I literally uses a little of this and a little of that.

I designed this card for a specific friend in mind and tried to tailor it to her.  She loves butterflies, the color hot pink, bling, and flowers.

Ironically enough I (unintentionally) basically did the same color combination as this card here.

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock which I embossed using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and cut out two patterns from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, layering one of the other.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I cut out a scalloped circle from Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheet using the Layering Circle Framelits.

Next I used the Dark and Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers and colored in two butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and fussy cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
