Stampin’ Up! Another Wonderful Year Father’s Day Card

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

My card starts off with Soft Suede cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Another Wonderful Year Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink across the front of the card and then used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out an oval out of the front.

I adhered a Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the card and stamped the trees from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow ink.

I then stamped a bunch of the same trees in Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating Nature’s Roots Framelits.  I adhered them to the side of the card and to each other using Stampin’ Dimensionals so they would cover the oval opening.

I stamped the same sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and adhered it over the trees using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I added a button from the True Gentleman Buttons and tied a Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine bow in it.

Enjoy!

As of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, there are significant changes coming to the Die Cutting and Embossing Product Line.

The Stampin’ Trimmer and all its accessories will also be discontinued.

These are big changes and I’ve broken them all down in a post here for you to read.

The big thing is if you have the Stampin Trimmer to stock up on blades and other accessories!!!

Stampin’ Up! Father’s Day Video Tutorial

Yay for it being Wednesday!

That means I’ll be going live tonight with another Facebook Live Tutorial.  Last week I made the card below and I have another masculine birthday card for you tonight.

Be sure to join me at 7:30 pm EST!  If you catch it live and leave a comment, at the end I’ll draw a name for someone to receive tonight’s card!

Today’s card is super easy to make – the Designer Series Paper does all the work…well, with the help of a little fussy cutting on your part.

For my example I made a Father’s Day card, but in the video I turned it into a birthday card.  The Well Said Stamp Set is so versatile that you can pretty much make any sort of sentiment needed.

Be sure to join me tonight.  The masculine birthday card I’ll make uses a new technique that I tried out.  I’d love to know what you think!

To see how I created today’s card, click the video below.  If you ever miss any of my videos, you can always see all of them on my YouTube Channel.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Card – Truly Tailored

The third Thursday of each month the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop will be joining Sandi MacIver and her Happy Stampers Blog Hop for a combined blog hop!  Happy hopping!

As participants we could choose between the sketch challenge and color challenge – I chose to use both!

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and using a Sponge Brayer and Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide, and Crumb Cake inks, I “painted” on the three colors.

I then ran the cardstock through the Big Shop in the Hexagons embossing folder to give it some texture.  To emphasize the texture even more, I used the Sponge Brayer again ( and went over the cardstock which made the edges of the hexagons a darker shade.

Next I layered a piece of Night of Navy corduroy ribbon over a small pattern from the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out using the Tailored Tag Punch which is sticking around in the new Annual Catalog – yay!

Enjoy!

Lift Me Up – Father’s Day Card

My card today starts off with Pacific Point cardstock.  I took another panel of Pacific Point cardstock and dry embossed it using the Hexagon TIEF.  I took the brayer and Crumb Cake ink and lightly brushed over the top of the embossed paper, going over certain areas more than others so it was an uneven look.  I matted it on Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card.

Next I created a 2″ banner of Crumb Cake cardstock and using the same brayer with Crumb Cake ink on it, brushed around the edges of it.  I stamped the hot air balloon image from the Lift Me Up stamp set in Archival Black on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut it out using the Up & Away thinlits and highlighted the outside again using the brayer.

I cut out another smaller hot air balloon in Basic Black cardstock using the Up & Away thinlits and adhered the balloons to the card.  I stamped in Pacific Point ink the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and inked the edges again using the brayer.

Enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day

This month’s theme for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop is “Masculine Projects.”  Enjoy hopping around to see what everyone created.

My masculine card today is a monochromatic Father’s Day Card.  It starts off with Dapper Denim cardstock.  I then cut strips of Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, and Island Indigo cardstock and adhered them over a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Lift Me Up Bundle to cut out a few clouds in Whisper White cardstock and also cut out the smallest hot air balloon in Night of Navy cardstock.  I dabbed Night of Navy, Dapper Denim, and Island Indigo ink with a baby wipe over the larger of the two hot air balloons, cut it out, and adhered it to the card.  I covered the “Congratulations” part of the sentiment with some Washi Tape and inked it up with Night of Navy ink.  I removed the washi tape and stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock.

Lastly, I created the “Happy Father’s Day” using the Thoughtful Banners Bundle and Island Indigo ink.

Enjoy!

Happy Father’s Day

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

For my card today, I wanted to make a Father’s Day card.  The Nailed It stamp set is perfect for any masculine card and especially Father’s Day and sad to say, it’s retiring.

My card starts off with Basic Black as its base.  I took a pattern from the Urban Underground DSP and adhered it to the bottom of my card.  For the top of the card, I stamped the tool images from the Nailed It Stamp Set in Delightful Dijon all around.

I then fussy cut the triangle-shaped pattern paper from the Urban Underground DSP to cover the seam between the cardstock and DSP.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using the trimmer.  I adhered it on a Basic Black square and added some Urban Underground embellishments.

Enjoy!
