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! 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.

Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored Birthday Card

Masculine cards can always be challenging.

The Truly Tailored Stamp Set and coordinating suite makes putting together Father’s Day cards or masculine birthday cards pretty easy.

My dad’s birthday is in March and I thought this would be a great card for him.

My card starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then matted two pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock over one another.  I cut three patterns from the True Gentleman DSP in 1′ strips and cut the ends as a banner to adhere to the card front.  I wrapped over the top of them a piece of Night of Navy corduroy ribbon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set in Tranquil Tide ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut it out using the Tailored Tag Punch.  I adhered it with Stampin Dimensionals.  I tied a bow through a button from the True Gentleman Buttons and adhered it over the corduroy ribbon.

I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set in Tranquil Tide ink on the inside of the card.

Enjoy!
