Guy Greetings Birthday Card


This is the card I made my hubby for his birthday at the beginning of the month. I had totally forgotten to share it with you all. I have to admit that this is a super easy card to make, but I think it looks perfect for any guy's birthday card. The Guy Greetings Stamp Set has definitely become my go-to stamp set for masculine cards! I just love it!

Instructions:

  1. The card base is a 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock folded in half.
  2. The Lost Lagoon Cardstock layer is 4" x 5-1/4". The Hardwood stamp was stamped on top of it with Sahara Sand ink. The splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set was stamped all over the piece with Lost Lagoon ink.
  3. Cut one 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of the text paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), and one 1-1/2" x 4-3/4" of the Basic Black/Very Vanilla diagonal-striped paper from the same set of DSP. Punch one small end of both pieces with the Banner Triple Punch. Sponge both of the banners with Sahara Sand ink. Attach the text paper banner just to the right of center of the Lost Lagoon layer, making sure to line the top, straight edge of the banner with the top edge of the Lost Lagoon layer. Attach the other banner to the right of the first banner, lining the top of the banner the same as the first. Curl the points of the banners up a bit for dimension.
  4. Cut one 4" x 1" piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Guy Greeting Stamp Set on the left side of the piece with Early Espresso ink. Sponge the edges of the strip with Sahara Sand ink. Attach it across the Lost Lagoon layer, placing it just above the bottom point of the striped banner. Poke a hole in the bottom, right corner of the Sahara Sand strip, and insert a small brad from the Antique Brads set. Attach the Lost Lagoon layer to the Sahara Sand card base.
  5. Stamp the tools stamp from the Guy Greetings Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with Early Espresso ink. Punch it out with the 2" Circle Punch. Sponge the edges of the circle with Sahara Sand ink.
  6. Die-cut a circle from a scrap piece of Early Espresso Cardstock with the # 5 die (counting from the smallest die) in the Circles Collection Framelits Dies. Attach the tools circle on top of the Early Espresso circle, and then attach it to the right side of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. See picture for placement.

Wild About Flowers Rustic Card


Today's card is one that features the Wild About Flowers and Hardwood Stamp Sets. I love the look of the wood behind the flowers. I CASEd this card from one that Angela Lorenz made. I did change it up some, but hers is definitely the inspiration.

Instructions:

  1. The card base is a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock folded in half.
  2. The Crumb Cake layer is 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". The Hardwood Stamp was stamped on with Crumb Cake ink. The leaves and flowers are the ones marked "1" in the Wild About You Stamp Set. The stems were stamped with Mossy Meadow ink, and the flowers were stamped with Delightful Dijon. The greeting from the same stamp set was then stamped on with Chocolate Chip ink.
  3. The Crumb Cake layer is then attached to a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Delightful Dijon Cardstock.
  4. A 7" piece of Delightful Dijon 1" Dotted Lace Trim was wrapped around these two layers, and the ends were attached to the back. Then, a 5" piece of the same lace trim is tied onto the left side of the attached lace trim with a single knot. The lace trim ends were trimmed at an angle.
  5. Finish the card by attaching the Delightful Dijon/Crumb Cake layers to the Mossy Meadow card base.

Timeless Elegance Anniversary Card


Happy Hump Day! Today's card is the card I made my parents for their 48th wedding anniversary last week. I've been seeing so many cards coloring in the roses of the Timeless Elegance DSP, and I just had to make one myself. It's so easy, and so beautiful! I CASEd this card from Claire Daly.

Instructions:
  1. Cut one 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Pool Party cardstock, and fold it in half to form the card base.
  2. Cut one 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of the rose paper from the Timeless Elegance DSP. Sponge Pool Party ink over the roses with a Sponge Dauber. (Yep, that's all you need to do to get those beautiful roses!).
  3. Cut one 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Sahara Sand cardstock. Attach the rose paper to it.
  4. Cut one 3-7/8" x 1-1/8" piece of Sahara Sand cardstock and one 3-7/8" x 1" piece of black/white-dotted paper from the Timeless Elegance DSP. Attach the DSP to the top of the Sahara Sand strip. Attach this strip to the top part of the rose paper.
  5. Wrap a 6" piece of Sahara Sand Lace Trim around the middle of the black DSP strip, and attach the trim ends to the back of the large Sahara Sand piece. Attach a 6" piece of Venetian Crochet Trim across the top of the Sahara Sand trim the same way. Wrap a 24" piece of Linen Thread around the top of the Venetian Crochet Trim twice, and tie the thread ends into a bow. Trim thread ends if necessary. Attach the whole thing to the front of the Pool Party card base.
  6. Punch a label out of a scrap piece of Sahara Sand cardstock with the Decorative Label Punch. Emboss the label by running it through the Big Shot with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.
  7. Stamp the "Happy Anniversary" stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set onto a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Punch it out with the Large Oval Punch. Punch out a scallop oval from a scrap piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Scallop Oval Punch.  Attach the ovals to the center of the embossed label from Step 6. Attach this to the left side of the ribbon strip with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  8. Punch two flowers from a scrap piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Petite Petals Punch, and punch out two more flowers from the same cardstock with the four-petal flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Attach the two larger flowers together with a Mini Glue Dot, alternating the petals as you do. Attach the two smaller flowers together the same way. Then, attach the smaller flowers to the top of the larger flowers with a Mini Glue Dot, also making sure to alternate the petals. Bend all of the petals up to give dimension to the assembled flower. Attach a small pearl from the Metal Rimmed Pearls to the center of the flower, and then attach the flower to the bottom, right corner of the greeting piece.

New Weekly Deals & Guy Greetings Card


Happy Tuesday, everyone! If you live in Indiana, like me, I hope you're staying dry! The town I live in, Mooresville, got over 5" of rain, in about an hour or two, early Sunday morning, and there has been a lot of flooding. We had three storms go through yesterday and last night, too. We've got some water that seeped into our basement, but thankfully, that was it. There's no standing water, but a few feet of our carpet is pretty wet. It doesn't smell really great, either, but we should have everything dried out and the carpet cleaned this weekend. We have some friends that didn't fare so well. They had around 3 ft of water in their house early Sunday morning, and they've lost just about everything. Their family has owned the house for 30 years, and this has never happened before. We're supposed to get more rain later today, too. Thankfully, the next two days are supposed to be dry. This has been one super wet summer around here!

Well, now for some stamping! Today's card is a variation of one I've made before, and you can see it HERE. It will be made at my Fun & Cute Stamp Camp next week. The instructions from the FIRST CARD are the same as this card except for:

  1. I used a different greeting on the tag, and I sponged the tag with Sahara Sand ink instead of stamping it with the spatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set. I also tilted the tag before attaching it to the card.
  2. I used Mellow Moss Striped Cotton Ribbon instead of the Lost Lagoon color of the same ribbon.
  3. I embossed the Sahara Sand layer with the Stylish Striped embossing folder instead of the Brick Wall folder.
  4. I put the Silver Metal Button on the bottom right of the card instead of on the tag.

Watercolor Wings Birthday Card


Today's card is another one that will be made at my Fun & Cute Stamp Camp. I CASEd this card from one I saw on Pinterest. It was made by Patsy Waggoner. As you can see, I didn't change it much. I used all three stamps for the butterfly (I think she only used two), I centered the butterfly on the card and I added a 2015-2017 In Color Blossom Accents.

Tips:
  1. The Lost Lagoon layer was embossed with the Fluttering embossing folder. It was attached to the Thick Whisper White cardstock card base upside down. The debossed side is the one that is on top.
  2. Before attaching the Lost Lagoon layer to the card base, I attached the greeting layer to the debossed layer. I then wrapped the Lost Lagoon Striped Cotton Ribbon around the top of the greeting layer, and attached the ends to the back of the debossed layer
  3. I stamped the bold image of the butterfly with Mint Macaron ink. I then inked up the border of the butterfly with Lost Lagoon ink, stamped on a scrap piece of paper, and then stamped it onto the butterfly. I then inked up the center, detail butterfly stamp with Lost Lagoon ink, and stamped directly on top of the butterfly.
  4. After die-cutting the butterfly, I put adhesive on the back center of the butterfly, and attached it to the card. I die-cut the little ornate butterfly out of White Vellum cardstock. I attached it to the center of the big butterfly with a couple Mini Glue Dots on the back center. I then attached the Tip Top Taupe accent from the 2015-2017 In Color Blossom Accents with a Glue Dot as well.
