Masculine Cards

Do you have a hard time coming up with masculine cards? Stampin' Up! has several sets that work great for guy cards.

Here's two cards I made using Stampin' Up!


 
Sets I used are Open Sea and By the Tide. I also used some embossing folders to make the wood piece and added bakers twine to give more dimension.
 
Oh I really like the new chalk technique. Stamp on Basic Black cardstock with Whisper White ink. Smear a little across the cardstock and it looks like a chalk board.
 
Email if you want to order the supplies to make this.

Father's Day Banner using Paper Pumpkin Kit

If you have signed up for Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! then you got the kit to make the journal.

 
Instead of a journal though I made a banner for Father's Day.
 



 
I die cut the letters from the chipboard cover and then embossed with Pool Party Embossing Powder. I also printed up a few pictures to add behind some of the thick stickers that come with the kit.
 
Make sure you sign up for Paper Pumpkin so you don't miss out on more fun projects using the monthly kits. Each month is different.
 
Thanks for looking.
 
By the way, just entered this project to a new blog I found that's all about Paper Pumpkin ideas. Check it out by clicking the image below.
 
 

Wedding Card Pop Up Dress by Stampin' Up!

June is the month for weddings and I made this adorable card using the Pop Up Dress die by Stampin' Up!

 
I had to figure out how to add some designer paper to the background on the inside of the card so I turned it over and used a pencil to lightly emboss the lines where I would have to cut.





Then I added some darker cardstock (the new Baked Brown Sugar) for the table.

 
I wanted the dress to stand out so I covered it in ribbon and added some pearl accents.
Find them on page 171 in the catalog. 119247   $4.95


I even decorated the front, keeping it simple so that the happy couple would be surprised by the inside.

If you have any questions let me know! Thanks for looking!
