Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship & Mountain Air Card

I think it is really brilliant how Stampin’ Up! creates suites of product for us. They consist of four different items that are designed to work together and coordinate.

I love them so much that I don’t generally mix product from outside the suites.

But the Beauty of Friendship Bundle and Mountain Air – it’s like they’re family, cousins.

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! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You Card

All week we’ve been talking about the new 2021-2023 In Colors.

If you missed them, you can find them here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Today’s card uses the new Evening Evergreen and I paired it with the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth Suite, which will be available May 4th.

My card starts off with Soft Suede cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Beauty of Earth Designer Series Paper.

**This paper is really amazing and is included in my Product Share. Want a sampling of it? Check out my Product Share and get lots of new product for a fraction of the price!!

I then took a panel of Evening Evergreen cardstock and embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and then matted it on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

Next, I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the bigger tree image in Evening Evergreen ink, stamping off first. I then stamped the more detailed image in Evening Evergreen ink over it, stamping off first again. I then stamped the trunk in Soft Suede ink, yes, you guessed it, stamping off first. I then matted this on Soft Suede cardstock.

For the other tree, I stamped the bigger tree image in Soft Succulent ink (stamping off first) and then the more detailed tree image in Evening Evergreen ink over it. I stamped the trunk in Soft Suede ink and cut them both out using the Beautiful Trees Dies, adhering them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same dies to cut out two birds from Bumblebee cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out with the Beautiful Trees Dies. Underneath I wound around some Crumb Cake Twine.

*By the way, this twine comes in a variety pack of 5 colors, and is also included in my Product Share!
