Masculine Cards

Wood Words Variation

I have a quick post on a simple variation of the Wood Words stamp set that I used on my previous blog post. I used the same card fold and colors as well as the same two stamp sets, Wood Words and Label Me Pretty.

I only changed a few things to make this card look a little different.

I added the beautiful cluster of flowers from the Wood Words set in crumb cake ink and I also used the new Wood Textures designer paper stack.

The same simple Z fold- you can check out the blog post previous to this one for the measurements and tips.

I also used very vanilla cardstock on the inside of this one.

Thought I'd share this one with you, as you can basically use all the same supplies.

I just received my box full of more new Stampin Up stamps and accessories, so I will be playing with my goodies tonight.

Stay tuned for some new creations coming soon!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!

Rooster Note from the Wood Words stamp set

The card I am sharing today is a simple Z fold card made with the Wood Words stamp set. I think this set should be called Farm Fresh, because its all the things that we would see on a farm, including a rooster!

I wanted the card to look very rustic and earthy. So, I used the colors, early espresso, crumb cake, cherry cobbler and whisper white.

 The Z fold on this card is very simple and easy. I folded the card base (11" x 4 1/4") in half, then I simply folded the front flap of the card up to meet the fold on top.

The Hardwood background stamp was used to give the card that rustic bark look. I also used the new Label Me Pretty stamp set along with the Pretty Label Punch to give this card an interesting element on the flap.

A little bit of burlap ribbon adds to the perfect rustic farm look.

I also used the Stitched Shapes framelits in the oval shape on the early espresso cardstock. This pulls the card together quite nicely.

Got to love a card with a cherry cobbler rooster on it, for sure :)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Colorful Seasons- My #1 Pick from the New Catalog

When I first saw the new Stampin Up catalog, the first set that I knew that I had to have was "Colorful Seasons."

Its perfect for all seasons and has coordinating dies to match. The leaves, the snowflakes, the flowers and branches, even an adirondack chair. This set covers it all for every season of the year.

I started with this beach scene. We actually did a similar card at my card class last week using the adirondack chair instead of the beach chair on this card. Both look equally fabulous.

IMG_5182

I tweaked this idea from my demonstrator friend, Kim Peck, and I love it! I sponged, peek a boo peach, so saffron, pool party and sahara sand across the card to emulate sky, water and sand.

The beach chair was stamped in pool party and sahara sand and the words and the birds are in early espresso ink.

The birds did not come with this set- I borrowed them from the " Wherever You Go" stamp set.

I punched the sun out with the 1.5" circle punch and used the wink of stella brush in clear over top to get the shimmer on the sun.

IMG_5183

Ahhhh... makes me wish I was at the beach right now.

Hope you like this calming, beachy card and I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.

Check out this awesome stamp set and bundle pictured below, before you go. You'll see why its my #1 pick!

Until the next time...

Card Class - Featuring Eastern Palace Suite

I actually remembered to take "people" pictures at class this time. Well, truth be told, Heather and Sharon reminded me or I would have missed the opportunity again.

Most everyone had finished and left, but there were a few ladies still stamping, chatting and looking over the long, 10 page retired list, trying to pick out the last "must haves" of the current catalog.

Sharon and Heather trying to decide what they cannot live without, before its gone forever.

We made this beautiful card with the stamps and framelits from the Eastern Palace Suite. This is available during the month of May only, as a Special Bundle purchase. This card uses both the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Medallion framelits. Check out the new Lemon Lime Twist "In Color." Isn't it gorgeous?

Here's a closeup of the focal point. I love that the dies can be used in over 45 different combinations.

Here's a cute card made with one of the retiring stamp sets from the 2016-2017 Stampin Up catalog, Always an Adventure. I got this cute idea from a card that I saw on pinterest made by Erica Cerwin. I tweeked it and added a few of my own touches

IMG_4641

I think Debbie was happy with her darling handstamped cards.

Cards from Class

I want to share 2 cards from Card Class last night. They are fun and full of color and sass! Plus they are both super easy to make.

The first card is made with the Big On Birthdays stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog. This is one of my favorite birthday sets. I love the fonts and just the awesome size of the stamps in the set. I also used some bright cheerful colors on this card. First of all, I chose the Festive Birthday Designer paper for the balloons, which I punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. The colors in this paper make me smile. I love the bold, bright, rainbow of colors!

IMG_3976
The next card is also bold and fun. For this card, I used the Confetti Celebration stamp set from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.

The star in this set works perfectly with the Medium Star Punch. This birthday card is simple and to the point. I think thats what I like most about it. A dimensional behind the star gives this card a nice dimension.

IMG_3977

Once again, I was too busy chatting and having fun with my guests, that I forgot to take people pictures. Oh well, theres always next time.

Hope you enjoyed a peek at these two card class cards from last night. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Until the next time..
