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! 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!

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I sure hope your week is going smoothly so far.  It seems as though we finally have spring here in Upstate New York.  Yesterday was filled with kids on their bikes, dirty feet, and ice cream.

I’m so excited to share with you the next Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #288 as it screams spring!  I really hope you’ll hop over to see what the design team created for this challenge and I sure hope you’ll participate!

I first started off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Next I took a pattern from the Wood Textures DSP and stamped the sentiment from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and laid the Wood Textures panel over it.  I marked where it would get adhered with a pencil.  I then used the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set (which is carrying over into the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog – wahoo!) and stamped a variety of flowers in Memento Black ink all around that penciled line.  I colored the flowers in using Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the Wood Textures DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Rich Razzleberry Pearls (from the Share What You Love Artisan – available June 1st) around the flowers.

Enjoy!
