You’re Flippin’ Awesome for #fms547

I’ve got a simple Father’s Day card inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the die cut images from the He’s the Man Designer Series Paper which resulted in a no-stamping card. If you want to make some quick masculine cards then this will be your go-to DSP. Layer up some paper and die cut images and sentiments and you have a card ready to go.

This card with a bbq theme would be perfect for Father’s Day for Dads who love to cook a snag on the barbie.

The panels of DSP were cut to 3cm x 7.5cm and matte onto Cajun Craze Cardstock 10cm x 8cm.

The background diamond elements from the All That Dies were die cut from Crumb Cake Cardstock and sponged with some Cajun Craze ink. Then I heat embossed them with a couple of layers of Clear Embossing Powder which gave it a rusted look. I pulled the thread from the Woven ribbon to create the texture at the back of the die cut circle.

Follow me on Facebook as I feature the He’s the Man suite this week for lots of inspiration.

Father’s Day Card for the Camping Dad

Blessed Sunday to you! Continuing with my ‘Dads’ theme which I’ve been focusing on my Facebook Page this week, I’ve got an outdoor themed card for the Dad who loves camping. The Campology stamp set is a favourite of mine for masculine cards.

I’m playing along with Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge where we are casing a Christmas Tree project from the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue, the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I’m CASEing this card from Page 14 of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue which uses the Regal Reindeer Bundle.

I flipped the card horizontal and used the Tailor Made Tags Dies to blend ink to resemble the project I was CASEing. Blending Parakeet Party and Evening Evergreen with a Blending Brush, I then stamped the trees in Evening Evergreen. I added some embossing pasge to resemble the snow which was in the original card. The Embossing paste picked up the green which was blended under and you can see the stamped trees under the light layer of embossing which adds to the rustic feel of this card.

The kettle and cup images were stamped in Soft Suede and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the handles twice and fussy cut to attach behind the main image. A strip of the Sale-A-Bration Silver & Gold Foil DSP was added behind the tag in line with the sketch I was CASEing.

At this stage I really wanted to add a bit ‘extra’ and couldn’t go past those leaves from the Stylish Sketches stamp set. This has got to be my favourite Sale-A-Bration product as I just love the images in it. You can get this set FREE with a $90 order.

Don’t miss out on qualifying for a Sale-A-Bration products. When your order reaches $90 you will get to select from a range of goodies. See our entire range here.

Stylish Sketches for ctc376

I’m joining in the Caseing the Catty Sunday Challenge with this card. We could CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) anything from the Mini Catalogue. For my CASE, I chose the card with the Crumb Cake card base on the top right of Page 46 from the Perched in a Tree bundle and copied the layour.

I’ve substituted the bird for a wolf from the Stylish Sketches stamp set. Going for a more wintry look with this card, I created a stencil from Cardstock and blended Granny Apple Green leaves onto Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Then I added some snow with a water painter and Craft Ink refill.

The leaves were die cut from the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper and the foil adds a nice contrast against the rustic look of the ribbon and the card.

This was layered onto a Soft Sea Foam card base. The card base is part of a Sale-A-Bration freebie as is the Stylish Sketches stamp set. Each of these products can be earned with a $90 order.

New at su Blog Hop – He’s the Man Suite

Hi crafty friend, Welcome to our suite showcase. The 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue has 10 varied and beautiful suites. Each of these suites come with it’s own range of products to make creating easy.

My suite I’ve chosen to showcase today was one of the first two I bought in my pre-order. The other was the Tea Boutique suite. I could see so many possibilities with the He’s the Man suite. What sets it apart from the other suites is the Designer Series Paper which comes with 2 sheets of die cut elements. These are so great for creating really quick projects.

The dies in the He’s All That bundle could be stand-alone dies and I love all the labels and shapes that are there which you can use in many ways. For this card, I used one of the label dies to die cut the Starry Sky Cardstock which I embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. This added a nice contrast against the rustic colours.

The tools are from the die cut DSP sheet and all my elements were layered onto a Stitched Rectangle which was blended with Crushed Curry and Early Espresso ink.

aWow Blog Hop – Let’s Hear it for the Boys!

Thank you for visiting me in Melbourne for our monthly trip Around the World on Wednesday. Our theme is ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boys’ with a focus on the men in our lives.

Awow Blog Hop, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop Header

I was not quite sure which direction I was going to take with this as my partner Adrian has several passions. He loves kayaking and surfing so I initially wanted to go along that theme. Then I shifted gears as he is a talented musician, music teacher and accompanist and I wanted to create a card with that in mind. In fact we met in church where he was the pianist/organist and I was a chorister so this card seemed perfect.

I’ve made a Centre Step Easel Card which is a really easy fun fold to create.

CENTRE STEP EASEL MEASUREMENTS

  • Card Front – 21cm x 14.8cm (scored in half at 10.5cm)
  • On the top half of the card cut at 4cm and 10.8 upto the score line.
  • Cut out these sections.
  • Fold the remaining centre portion in half to form the easel.

To create the piano keys I cut strips of Basic White Cardstock at 1.5cm and Basic Black Cardstock at 1cm. The Black keys were rounded using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

For the inside of the card I used the waves from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set to stamp the background in Tahitian Tide and Bermuda Bay (stamped off). I just had to incorporate something of the ocean (at least in name!).

The music notes were hand drawn with the Basic Black Marker and I added some Matte Black Dots to give them dimension.

When folded this card will fit in a 6″ square envelope. However, this might not end up in an envelope as I’ll probably just hand it to Adrian! By making the front panel smaller,this card will fit in a regular C6 envelope.

Although this is probably not your regular ‘guy’ card, it suits my guy and is suited for any music lover.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and I hope you have enjoyed my creation. For lots of inspiration for masculine makes make sure you travel the world with us and check out all the amazing work of these ladies, beginning with lovely Cheryll Miller.
