Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Masculine Card

Masculine cards can be challenging, but really anything that isn’t frilly or too girly can be considered a masculine card.

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “for the men/boys” and you’re going to find lots of inspiration for masculine cards as you go through the different blogs.

I decided to use the new Beauty of Friendship Bundle.

Stampin Up Beauty of Friendship Masculine Card

My card starts off with Mossy Meadow cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper and matted it on Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

Next I created my tree using the Beautiful Trees Dies and Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, and Cinnamon Cider cardstock.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out with the rectangle die from the Beautiful Trees Dies.

This is a beautiful bundle that makes great nature cards, which I always find work really well for masculine cards.

Thanks for checking out my project today!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Fab Friday challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Inspiring Thoughts Card & Video

Happy Wednesday!!!

Today’s card is the one I shared last week live for my Wednesday Facebook live. It’s a simple card that comes together quick and easy using the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.

The Beauty of Friendship Bundle is a great duo of Inspiring Thoughts Stamp Set which has really great sentiments that cover just about every occasion and Inspiring Canopy Dies, which makes a great nature scene.

What I love most about this bundle – you can use it for just about any occasion and for masculine cards too, which can be a bit challenging.

I’ll be back tonight for another live tutorial at 7:30 EDT on my Facebook page. I’ll be sharing a new product which you won’t want to miss. You’ll also have the opportunity to win the card!!!

Stampin’ Up! A Cut Above Masculine Card

The A Cut Above Stamp Set has special meaning for me.

I talked about it in this post here, so I of course wanted to use it again. I just love this adorable man whistling away while he mows.

I trimmed my card down so it was more narrow. I then stamped the man mowing image from the A Cut Above Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using Poppy Parade, Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, and Ivory & Bronze Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I then embossed the front using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Next I stamped the clouds, bird, and sun on a separate piece of Basic White cardstock. I colored them in using the Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers and fussy cut them out.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Cut Above Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin’ Up! A Cut Above Birthday Card & Video

My grandfather…he was a very special man, and if anyone ever asked where his house was, you’d just say on Sand Creek Road, the one with the immaculate lawn.

When I say immaculate, I mean it – he never mowed in the same direction twice in a row, the lines were perfect – it was ALL about the lines – and he hand dug up (the few and far between) dandelions.

It was greener than green, felt like a carpet, and he took great pride in it.

Ironically enough, my Dad is now the same way – the man lives for his lawn! Today’s card is dedicated to the two lawn-loving men in my life!

Stampin Up A Cut Above Father's Day Masculine Birthday Card

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a Crumb Cake pattern from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper. I took a small piece of Denim Ribbon and stapled it into the corner before adhering it down.

Stampin Up A Cut Above Father's Day Masculine Birthday Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and cut it using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I stamped the images from the A Cut Above Stamp Set on it in Memento Black ink.

Stampin Up A Cut Above Father's Day Masculine Birthday Card

I colored it in using Night of Navy (pants), Balmy Blue (shirt, clouds), Crumb Cake (hat, shoes), Poppy Parade (mower), Smoky Slate (mower), Granny Apple Green (grass), Ivory (skin), Bronze (hair), and Daffodil Delight (sun) Stampin’ Blends Markers. I then matted it on a panel of Night of Navy cardstock and offset a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock underneath.

Next I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using another Stitched Rectangles Dies., adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
