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!

Stampin’ Up! Bubble Over Masculine Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop’s theme is “Masculine.”  I hope you’ll hop around to see what we’ve each created this month!

Masculine cards sure can be tricky.  No frills, fluff, or sweet details.  I tend to stick to clean and simple for masculine cards and that’s what I’ve created today.

I started off with Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (which was matted on Real Red cardstock) and stamped on the front of it circles in Crushed Curry ink from the Bubble Over Stamp Set.

Next I cut out two bottles from Chocolate Chip cardstock using the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits.   I used a piece of a stamping sponge and Chocolate Chip ink to add extra color to the edge of the bottles.

*Note: Although the Bubble Over and matching framelits are carrying over into the Annual Catalog, it will NOT be carried over as a bundle.  Get the Bubble Over Bundle now while you can to receive the 10% discount!

I stamped the sentiment and the star in Real Red ink and cut them out using the same framelits as above.  Lastly, I cut out two silver bottle caps to add to the bottles.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored – FMS332

Happy Monday!

Here’s to a great week ahead which hopefully includes some crafting for you.  I find if I don’t get some crafting in each week, I’m pretty miserable.

Ladies often ask me how I’m able to carve out time to craft each week and sometimes daily…easily, I just do.  I know it’s good for my mental health and sanity, so I consciously make time in my week.

My card today is a fun one using the True Gentleman Suite from the Occasions Catalog.  I started off with Night of Navy cardstock on which I adhered a pattern from the True Gentleman DSP pack.  I then took another smaller pattern, matted it on Very Vanilla cardstock, and adhered it to the card.

Next I adhered a piece of Burlap Ribbon over the longer DSP panel.  I used the sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set and covered the outside of it and the face of the fox in washi tape so that only the words “You’re a Fox” were uncovered.  I inked up the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.

I then stamped the fox from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and fussy cut him out.  I adhered the fox using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few True Gentelman buttons.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Everyone seemed to really enjoy last weeks fancy fold card, that I decided to make another one this week…this time a masculine card.

Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST I do a Facebook Live Tutorial.  If you watch live, leave a comment, I’ll pick a name at the end for someone to win that night’s card!

This was a fun fancy fold card to make using the Waterfront Stamp Set and the Coffee Break DSP.

Check out the video below to watch this week’s video.  If you ever miss a tutorial, I always post them on YouTube afterwards.

Please note that the video does skip a few seconds here and there, as my husband kept calling me and paused the video.  🙂

One Big Meaning – Many Thanks

Do you ever find that one thank you isn’t enough?

For today’s card share, I embraced the many Thank Yous that the One Big Meaning Stamp Set has.

My pallet for this card was neutrals.  That way it works just as easily for a guy as a girl.

I started with a base color of Sahara Sand.

One Big Meaning - Stamp It Up With JaimieI stamped the variety of thank you sentiments in Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, and Soft Suede all around the card.

One Big Meaning - Stamp It Up With Jaimie - Stampin Up

I did stamp one Thank You on a separate Whisper White, cut it out, matted it, and used dimensionals to give it some lift.  I added a coordinating Candy Dot as well.

Enjoy!

Party Pants

Today’s card’s color inspiration comes from the Can You Case It Challenge.  I love these colors together!

CYCI113-300x228

The picture doesn’t show it too clearly, but I started with a base color of Thick Whisper White and then just the right side with Sahara Sand.  I then layered them with Basic Gray.

Party Pants - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Softly Falling Impressions Embossing Folder to give the Basic Gray some texture.  It mirrors the falling effect on the balloons.

Party Pants - Stampin Up - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

The Night of Navy balloons are from the Balloon Celebration Bundle.  The dots were stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in white.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Party Pants (Sale-a-bration) Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy.

Enjoy!

Number of Years Bundle!

From the moment I laid my eyes on the Occasions Catalog I knew I wanted the Number of Years Bundle!  I think it’s just so versatile for cards and scrapbooking alike.  It covers birthdays, anniversaries, school grades, and can even ring in a new year.

140811S

I love – love – love this bundle!  It was a must for me.

For my card today, I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock for my base and layered it with an Old Olive pattern from the Wildflower Fields DSP.

Number of Years - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I used the Number of Years Stamp Set in Night of Navy for my numbers as well as the other sentiment details.  The framelits match for a perfect cut!

I added a Night of Navy ribbon and Old Olive Button/Baker’s Twine to finish it off.

World’s Best Dad Card

I’m in love with this beautiful Going Places Designer Series Paper! I love the more masculine designs and colors.  When I saw it, I knew I just had to have it – 1: Because we do a lot of traveling as a family and it will be great for scrapbooking and 2: My husband LOVES old world maps so for Father’s Day cards and birthday cards for him – this is perfect!

For today’s card, I started off with a background of Delightful Dijon.  I then layered it with a page from the Going Places DSP.

Going Global - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

My stamped globe, as well as the sentiment is from the Going Global Stamp Set.  I knew I wanted the sentiment “World’s Best Dad” and the arrows as well, but they were on different stamps.  First I stamped the “World’s Best Dad” in Basic Black.  Then, I covered the other sentiment with Washi Tape (so as to just show the arrows) and inked the stamp.  Then I removed the Washi Tape and stamped the arrows under the “World’s Best Dad” sentiment.

Washi Tape - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

For the layered look, I used other designs from the Going Places DSP in Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Delightful Dijon and then finished off with a touch of Linen Thread.

Enjoy!
