Masculine Cards

Card Class and a Coffee Cafe Card

I've been wanting to post about my fun Card Class a week or so ago, but I didn't get time to do it with all the Thailand trip posts that I was working on this past week.

Well, I finally am able to post our card class fun and a cute card that everyone made from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating framelits.

I think this card was one of the favorites. Everyone loves coffee, don't they?

How cute are these two? Jackie and Deb are checking out all the great card samples that I have on display during class.

Here's a close up of the Coffee Cafe card: I will post the supplies used, at the end of this post.

I made up a bunch of cello bags with tags made from the "A Little Wild" stamp set. Inside were cute Thailand elephant magnets and some candy from both China and Thailand, for all the ladies at card class!

I think Deb liked her gift :)

Kennedy, Liz and Sue were so funny- they were going balistic over the Coffee Cafe card- they loved it!

(I think I need a haircut)

I always have so much fun at card class with all these super adorable and fantastic people. I can't wait until the next one!

Until the next time....

Masculine Card with the Le"men" Zest stamp set

It seems everyone always needs ideas for masculine cards. I know I always do. They are somehow harder to create than the fancy girly girl, flowery, pink and pretty cards we create for our girl friends.

I thought the perfect colors for a masculine birthday card would be the new lemon lime twist and of course, basic black and naturally I had to use the Lemon Zest stamp set- only its a lime this time.

I did use a little bit of the new Lemon Lime Ombre ribbon- but you could leave that off if you wanted to.

Here's a close up. If you look really close you can see the new Garden Trellis emboss folder on the basic black cardstock. Its the same folder I used on the Coffee Cafe card that I posted last week. Its so cool- and can be used for masculine cards too.

Here's a little variation of the same card. I used the Layered Leaves emboss folder on the basic black cardstock for this one.

Either design would make a great birthday card for the great guys in your life. Hey, it could even make a great birthday card for the girls as well!

Thanks for taking a peek at my blog today.

Until the next time...

My Swap Pile

So, remember the Lemon Zest card that I posted the other day? The one that I made for the Stampin' Up Advisory Board Alumni swap?

Well, I wanted to share the other swaps from the other girls, with you.

So here's the whole kit and kaboodle!

Stampin Up Coffee Cafe Bundle

So, I was playing around with this set, trying to think of something unique to do with it. I didn't really come up with anything spectacular, but I do think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe when I have more time to experiment, I can do some really fun stuff, like maybe make the lid out of acrylic sheets or something cool like that.

I do really like the colors- soft sky, crumb cake and early espresso. Blue and brown shades always look so complimentary together, don't you think?

I wasn't sure if I was going to like the new Garden Trellis emboss folder, but I actually love it! I used it twice here. Once forward and once backward. I like the way it looks both ways. I added Wink of Stella to the whipped cream - its so shimmery and shiny.

I think I use the Glitter Enamel Dots on just about everything. How can I not? They are so pretty! I added one to the knot on the crumb cake ribbon.

Makes me want to make a Starbucks run... it looks so yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my Coffee Cafe card. I can't wait to make more coffee cards with this fun bundle!

Thanks for stopping by.

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.

IMG_5435

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.

IMG_5436

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

IMG_5437

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

IMG_5434

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...

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.

IMG_5310

 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.

IMG_5313

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.

IMG_5312

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

IMG_5311

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.

Until the next time...
