Guy Greetings - My Hubby's Father's Day Card


This is the card that I made my husband for Father's Day last week. I CASEd this card from one made by Carmen Morris. My husband has a mustache, so of course he claimed the muscles, too! lol

Instructions:
  1. The card base is a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Soft Suede cardstock, folded in half.
  2. I stamped the World Map stamp onto a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Crumb Cake ink, and sponged the edges with the same ink. I stamped the World Map onto a 3-3/4" x 2" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with Crumb Cake ink, tore the bottom long edge, and sponged all of the edges with the same ink.
  3. I cut a 3-3/4" x 2" piece of Basic Black cardstock, tore the bottom long edge, and attached the Crumb Cake strip to the top of it, making sure the black torn edge is below the Crumb Cake torn edge. I then attached it to the Very Vanilla piece.
  4. I attached the Very Vanilla piece onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, and then attached it to the front of the card base.
  5. I punched the top of a 2" x 4-1/2" piece of Soft Suede cardstock with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch. I then sponged the edges of a 1-1/2" x 3-1/4" piece of Typeset DSP with Crumb Cake ink, and attached it to the tag. I then cut a 3" piece of Burlap Ribbon, folded it in half in a "v" shape, and stapled it onto the top of the tag. I then attached the tag to the right-side of the card.
  6. I stamped the muscle man stamp from the Guy Greeting set onto a 2" x 3-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla with the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.
  7. I stamped the World's Greatest stamp onto a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock, and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I attached it to the top of the muscle man piece, and trimmed the corners of the Very Vanilla cardstock that were sticking up above the banner. Then, I attached it to the middle of the card. I then attached two, Basic Black Candy Dots to the bottom right of the tag.
  8. I stamped the husband stamp to a scrap piece of Soft Suede cardstock, punched it out with the Washi Label Punch, and attached it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Guy Greetings Father's Day Card


Today's card is the card I made for my dad for Father's Day. I LOVE this stamp set, Guy Greetings! It's the perfect card for masculine projects. This has definitely become my go-to stamp set for masculine cards. I used it to make my hubby's Father's Day card, too. I'll be posting that card on Sunday.

Instructions:
  1. I embossed a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Sahara Sand cardstock by running it through the Big Shot with the new Brick Wall embossing folder.
  2. I attached a 5-1/4" x 2" piece of Timeless Elegance DSP to the bottom of the brick layer. I then wrapped a 7" piece of Lost Lagoon Striped Cotton Ribbon around the top of the DSP, and attached the ribbon ends to the back of the brick layer.  I then attached it to the Sahara Sand card base (a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece, folded in half).
  3. I took a 2" x 5" strip of Very Vanilla cardstock, and punched one end of it with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch. I stamped the hats stamp and the greeting stamp from the Guy Greetings set onto the piece with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. I then stamped the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set all over the piece with a Sahara Sand ink pad. I then tore the straight end of the tag, and sponged all of the edges with Sahara Sand ink.
  4. I took a few 4" strands of Linen Thread, and folded them in half. I inserted the loop-side into the tag hole, starting from the front to the back, and thread the loose ends of the thread through the loop, and pulled it tight to secure it to the tag. I then attached a medium Silver Basic Metal Button to the tag with a Mini Glue Dot. Last, I attached the tag to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Sprinkles of Life Stamp-A-Stack Card


Today is the last card that will be made at my Occasions Mini Stamp-A-Stack today. I used the very versatile, Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set. This set is this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set. $3 will be given to RMHC for every set sold. To see how versatile this set is, CLICK HERE to see the other cards I've made with it. Of course, you just have to have the coordinating Tree Builder Punch to go along with it!

Tips:
  1. The ice cream cone was stamped onto the bottom of the Whisper White layer with Chocolate Chip ink, and then colored in with a Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker.
  2. The ice cream layers are stamped with the same ink color as the cardstock. Starting from the bottom, the colors are Tempting Turquoise, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, and Melon Mambo.
  3. I attached the ice cream layers to each other with SNAIL Adhesive, and then attached them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. The Tempting Turquoise layer was embossed with the new Elegant Dots folder.
  5. I stamped the greeting onto a scrap piece of Melon Mambo cardstock with a Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. I then punched it out with the Washi Label Punch, making sure the greeting was on the right side of the punch. I then attached the Old Olive heart (which was punched out with the heart stamp in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) with a Mini Glue Dot. The whole thing was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

My CPC Project - Flower Patch Card Box Set


Today's Craft Project Central project is another one that I've designed this month. I had forgotten how much I love this stamp set (Flower Patch)!

Summertime is here, and flowers are everywhere! This card box set would make a perfect gift, and the four cards are perfect for any summer greeting. The card box is covered with a decorated sleeve that can be slid off and on. The set features the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits Dies. Three of the new 2015-2017 In Colors and the new Banner Triple Punch are used, too! This would also make a great card class.

Awesomely Artistic SAS Card


Today's card is another birthday card design that will be made at my Occasions Mini Stamp-A-Stack - Birthdays. I CASEd this from one that was displayed at the Hawaiian Incentive Trip. I didn't go, but someone had taken a picture of it and posted it. I thought it was so pretty, and just had to make it. It was made with the beautiful new set, Awesomely Artistic.

Tips:
  1. The big floral stamp was stamped with Island Indigo ink on both the card base, and the Very Vanilla base.
  2. The fern-type stamps were stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink.
  3. The textured border stamp and the splotches stamp were stamped with Delightful Dijon ink.
  4. After rounding the two right-side corners of the Very Vanilla layer, I sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink.
  5. The greeting frame was stamped with Island Indigo ink, and die-cut with the coordinating die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits set. The greeting was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink.
  6. The greeting was attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Build A Birthday Stamp-A-Stack Card


Happy Monday! I want to share a card that I've made for my upcoming Occasions Mini Stamp-A-Stack - Birthdays. I used the wonderful Build a Birthday Stamp Set to make this card. I've used this set to make a birthday cake, but this time I used it to make birthday candles. This is a super quick and simple card to make, so it's easy to mass produce. Great for a Stamp-A-Stack.

Tips:
  1. I attached the three washi tapes to a strip of Whisper White cardstock, and then attached it to the card base. This makes the colors show up more. Putting it directly on the card base would have added a yellow shade to the colors.
  2. I used the Banner Triple Punch to punch the two ends on the greeting banner. I punched the ends first, and then stamped the saying.
