Masculine card

Stampin’ Up! Sneaky Peek Desert Details Bundle for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to a Tuesday hop with Amy’s Krew! The theme is ‘celebrate’ and we can interpret that however…,I’ve created what I consider a masculine card with this delightfully fun Desert Details Bundle available in the Jan-Apr 2023 Mini Catalog, so Jan 5! I can’t believe I’m writing 2023 on stuff – ‘cuz I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

Stampin' Up! AIK Krew Team Blog Hop

The Desert Details Bundle is very Aztec’y’, different & delightful (‘cuz it is different). I’ve used Designer Series Papers from the suite of products and an embellishment from the suite as well: Delicate Desert 12×12 DSP & Dry-Brushed Metallic Specialty DSP (also 12×12); Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins .

This doesn’t give a very good image of the center DSP – let’s try another photo…

Here ya go – now you can see the inner DSP a bit better. Look at that wonderful detail! The colors in the various papers of this particular DSP are Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Petal Pink, Gray Granite & Cajun Craze. The polka dot in the background is one of the papers, as is the shiny (this is the Dry-Brushed Specialty DSP!) AND the center paper as well (Delicate Desert DSP). Aren’t they F-U-N? And you see I added a copper trim. And those wonderful embellishments are Gold Faceted Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Here’s what I created on the inside.

Here you can see two of the very decorative long stamps – stamped in Gray Granite. The sentiment is also part of the Desert Details stamp set and is stamped in Soft Succulent. The very thin strips were remnants from the copper die cut on the front and I had to use them. Unfortunately the more detailed strip isn’t on straight, but can see how very cool it is.

For the envelope I stamped this wonderful detail stamp in Gray Granite near the edge of the envelope, then added more of the Delicate Desert DSP to the flap. This is just a wonderful masculine card. I love the layers of it and all the detail, yet it can so easily be sent to a man. Let’s take a quick peek at the bundle and a closer look at the DSP used.

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold

Oh my goodness… I received some preorder items from the Jan-April Mini Catalog along with a few Jan/Feb Sale-a-bration items and I’m having SO MUCH FUN! Today’s card features Dandy Designs DSP and the Adorable Owls stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog – AND it’s a super easy Fun Fold. Let’s take a peek…

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold

Isn’t this little guy just the cutest! And the sentiment ‘Hoot! Hoot!’ is also from the Adorable Owls stamp set. Actually it’s a partial sentiment… meaning I used some retired Washi tape to cover the part I didn’t want to use. I also used some White 6×6 Glimmer Paper for the upper DSP. The other DSP is called Dandy Designs DSP and is a large pack of 30 sheets of 12×12. The dots are the reverse of the sideways stripes. :O) Let me share with you how to make this fun fold design…

  • Cut the card base (here it is Balmy Blue) 5 1/2 x 7 1/4 and score @ 4 1/4
  • Cut another panel of Balmy Blue 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (that’s the front largest square)
  • Cut DSP:
    • 2 3/4 x 5 1/4 (here I used the White 6×6 Glimmer Paper)
    • 4 x 5 1/4 for inside panel
    • 3 1/4 x 3 14
  • Adhere panels to the appropriate places with adhesive of choice.
  • Stamp the owl from Adorable Owls stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White panel
  • Color owl with Stampin’ Blends
    • Light & Dark Soft Suede for the body of the owl
    • Dark Daffodil Delight for the eyes
    • Dark Basic Black – for the smaller portion of the eyes
    • Light Basic Black for the beak + Color Lifter for highlighting
    • Dark Pumpkin Pie for the bow tie
  • Chalk Marker (white) for the eye highlight
  • Die cut owl panel with Stylish Shapes Dies
  • Adhere owl to the square panel, centering, with dimensionals
  • Stamp the sentiment from Adorable Owls stamp set, covering unwanted portion, in Memento Black
  • Adhere to square panel with mini dimensionals. The right end of the sentiment will need stacked dimensionals
  • Adhere completed square to top panel only
  • Add Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems in Balmy Blue
Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold.2

For the inside… cut another Basic White Square 3 1/4 x 3 1/4. Stamp owl as listed above & color. Stamp sentiment using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in Memento Black ink. To adhere… open card, lay this panel on the upper panel right side down & upside down, centering it on the square. Add adhesive and close the bottom portion of the card on the piece. Bingo – attached properly 😀👍

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold.3
Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold.2

For the envelope… more of the same Balmy Blue & White stripe pattern from Dandy Designs DSP – on the flap of course. I chose not to stamp anything on the envelope front. This card was sent already… to a man friend who recently had surgery. I hope he likes it – and he feels better too!

Stampin' Up! Adorable Owls Fun Fold.4

Now, what you need to know about this fun fold… this was a landscape design. It can also be portrait. I’ll share one of those in a couple of days 😁

The Balmy Blue and also the Basic White card stocks are part of the 2022-2023 Annual catalog. The Blends, Memento Black ink and Chalk Marker are in that same catalog as is Inspired Thoughts stamp set. The Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gems and White Glimmer 6×6 are in the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog – as Real Red & White 6×6 Glimmer pack. These are all available for purchase through my online store (see below). If you do not have a demonstrator & need catalogs, please reach out to me.

If you would like to order any of the products to make this card from my online store or any other items, that’s really easy to do. And remember to use my current HOST CODE 4BGN9HG4 to earn credit from me. Here’s how it works… when you place an order of $50 or more (before shipping & taxes), you receive from me a SU! item valued up to $10 + Star-Studded Rewards.

Stampin’ Up! Sympathy Cards

Welcome to Wednesday – the midweek hump :O) And how’s it going for you? It’s going well here. I have two cards for you today, both very similar and are sympathy cards. It’s most unfortunate we need these, but it is necessary and I want them to reflect my sincerity in the family or friend loss. These are pretty simple cards, unfussy, but I think they ‘fill the bill’.

Stampin' Up! Sympathy card 1.1

This is the first card, and it uses the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder, Deckled Rectangle Dies, Metallic Edge Cotton Ribbon (wonderful silver trim!), Inspired Thoughts stamp set (sentiment stamped in Smoky Slate ink) and Abigail Rose DSP plus Pastel Pearls in Blue. Here’s the inside and the envelope. The card base is Smoky Slate; layers are Very Vanilla. The DSP is Abigail Rose.

Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card 1, inside.2
Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card 1.3

Card 2 uses the very same layout but the card base is Basic White; Abigail Rose DSP but a different pattern, Beauty of Friendship stamp set for the front sentiment (fussy cut) and Inspired Thoughts stamp set for the inside sentiment, each stamped in Smoky Slate ink. Crinkled Seam Binding is the bow with a bit of the Silver cording to tie it together. The Stitched Greenery Die was used for the background and of course, the Deckled Rectangle Dies to die cut the panels of DSP & Basic White. I really like the leaf pattern here and how the Stitched Greenery Die further enhances that aspect. And yes, more of the Pastel Pearls in Blue. They are such a soft shade they easily pass for Smoky Slate even though they aren’t :O)

Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card 2.1
Stampin' Up! Sympathy Card 2.inside
Stampin' Up! Sympathy card.2, envelope

Gosh, this envelope photo looks blurry! Sorry ’bout that… the DSP is the same Abigail Rose pattern as on the card front. And I stamped the leaf pattern from Cottage Rose stamp set in Smoky Slate ink so it’s soft and not too demanding to the eye.

These are two understated sympathy cards, nothing demanding to the eye and a welcome addition for a sympathy card.

As I have mentioned several times, Stampin’ Up! does an incredible job of coordinating it’s items. ~ from embellishments to DSP to stamp sets & dies. So many coordinate well together that it makes it really easy to combine from various items to make a card ‘work’. Thank you Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderful Snowflakes and In Color 6×6 DSP

Good Friday morning! Wow – the week has flown… and I have a friendly, wintry card for you today. Wintry – because I’m using Wonderful Snowflakes and In Color 6×6 DSP in Starry Sky. I’ve cut a square just slightly larger than the snowflake and adhered that to a Basic White square a bit larger than that and set it aside while preparing the card base.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Snowflakes & In Color 6x6 DSP

The card base is Thick Basic White. I took another panel of regular Basic White and splattered it with my Starry Sky Marker by flicking the brush tip end on the lid, flicking it away from me & onto the panel. When it was covered enough, I added a strip of In Color 6×6 DSP in Starry Sky, and adhered that to a Starry Sky panel slightly larger. I put dimensionals on the back and added it to the card base. I added the square with the Wonderful Snowflake to that with dimensionals as well. Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins in white were added, then 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Starry Sky. I wrapped the 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine in Starry Sky, around my three fingers three times and tied a knot then adhered it with a glue dot – and the card front was done.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Snowflakes & In Color 6x6 DSP.2

Because I wanted this to just be available for a note (of thanks, of appreciation, whatever) I kept it really simple: A Basic White panel adhered to a Starry Sky panel and into the inside of the card. This could easily serve as a masculine card – and I like having those ready at hand. I can easily add a sentiment & make it a birthday card too :O)

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Snowflakes & In Color 6x6 DSP.3

The last but not least – is the envelope… more of the In Color 6×6 DSP in Starry Sky adhered to the envelope flap & trimmed to fit. Done. Oh I do like how this came together :O) Card cuts for this project will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Support

Good morning, good morning. I’ve an encouragement card for you today. A friend of mine has had some health issues for a bit & just needs a ‘pick-me-up’, so I send cards every now & then to let her know she’s in my prayers and not forgotten in her pain. I’ve used Perched In A Tree stamp set with it’s coordinating Aspen Tree Dies – one of my favs.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree.1

I’ve tried coloring this sweet bird similar to a chickadee – not sure that worked so that’s why I’m telling you :O). I used Watercolor Pencils after stamping with Memento ink on a Basic White scrap: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral , Whisper White and then blended with a Blender Pen to smooth the lines. It was then die cut with the appropriate die from the Aspen Trees Dies. My next step was to die cut several of these gorgeous leaves from the Aspen Trees Dies: Brushed Metallic paper & Copper Foil Sheets. I used a circle on my desk die cut for another project to create the sun/ moon. I used a Blending Brush with So Saffron ink then Mango Melody ink around the edges. It isn’t real bright cuz it’s on Gray Granite card stock. I used another Blending Brush to add some Balmy Blue ink all over, making it look like sky. It’s very subtle, but definitely there in person. I stamped the tree branch in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment in Memento ink – both from the Perched in a Tree stamp set. The bird was adhered over the branch with dimensionals, then the leaves added with liquid glue. The center leaf is adhered with liquid glue at the stem and a dimensional on its leaf tip for more depth. This panel was added to a Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue ink using Perched In A Tree stamp set, then used a Blending Brush to add a frame of color to the Basic White panel. I included the large die cut leaf from the Aspen Trees Dies with liquid glue. This leaf was die cut from Copper Foil Sheets. The panel was added to the inside of the Basic Gray card base.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree. Support.3

For the envelope, stamp the branch again with Soft Suede ink on the front. Add a strip of Basic Gray that has been run through the Timber 3D embossing folder to the flap, trim to fit. This could so easily be a masculine card, and I don’t have many of those. However, as I mentioned earlier, this for a woman friend this time.

Stampin’ Up! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold

Hello again. Guess what? I have another fun fold for you :O) In card class Thursday we made two fun folds ~ the one I posted yesterday with the Caroling Mice – a swing fold; and the other is the one I’m sharing with you today, made with Happier Than Happy stamp set. This could be masculine or a child’s card because of the colors & DSP. It could also be a woman’s card – it has flexibility.

Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold

See what I mean that this could be a child’s card? And these colors too are bright & cheery and wonderful together. Calypso Coral is the card stock base and Sahara Sand is the contrasting color. The DSP is from the Happier Than Happy 12 x 12 DSP pack. So – how to make this card…

  • Calypso Coral pieces: 5 1/2 x 11, scored on long side @ 4, 5 3/4, 7 1/2, 9 1/4; 5 x 2 1/2 scored at 2 1/2; 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 (inside panel)
  • Sahara Sand pieces: 2 1/4 x 2 14, 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 – emboss all of these with the Timber 3D embossing folder
  • Basic White: 2 x 2 (sentiment panel for inside) + additional pieces for stamped items
  • DSP – Happier Than Happy 12 x 12: 1 1/2 x 5 1/4, cut 2

Begin by adhering pieces to panels 1,3 & 5: that’s DSP, Sahara Sand & Sahara Sand.

Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy Fun Fold.2

Adhere the square Sahara Sand piece to the left area on the scored 5 x 2 1/2 strip. Now adhere this strip to the front panel… with the card closed, place the left Sahara Sand portion on the front so it is equidistant from the left edge of the card & the right side of the card as well. Now, with the card folded accordian-style, adhere the right part of the 5 x 2 1/2 strip to panel 4. Adhere the additional DSP piece over top. Time to do some stamping/ decorating… stamp the front sentiment in Calypso Coral ink on Basic White using the Charming Sentiments stamp set; die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. Adhere to the front with mini dimensionals. Stamp the owl, stump and fox from Happier Than Happy stamp set on another Basic White scrap in Sahara Sand ink and die cut with the Happy Forest Friends Dies. Adhere in place as shown in photo. Stamp the inside sentiment (WOOHOO) from Charming Sentiments stamp set on the remaining Basic White 2 x 2 square in Sahara Sand ink and adhere to the inside. For the final touch, add the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-backed Dots. Turn card over & adhere a panel 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 in Basic White on the back for writing a sweet note. DONE!

Stampin' Up! happier Than Happy Fun Fold.3

Last but not least is the envelope… more of the same Happy Forest Friends DSP on the flap, adhered & trimmed to fit. For the front, stamp the cute owl from Happier Than Happy stamp set in Sahara Sand – and it’s all read for someones special birthday :O)

Stampin’ Up! Stylish Shapes, Masculine

Good Wednesday morning! We had rain last night at some point – stove clock and microwave clocks were flashing when I got up. I must have been very sound asleep! Gotta check the rain gage in a bit. How about you ~ what’s going on in your part of the world? Ah, but this post is about card making… so… today’s card is pretty fun and amazingly masculine. The Stylish Sketches stamp set is a FREE one during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order, and it has a couple of really interesting and different stamps.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine

When I think masculine, I usually think dark colors. This is anything but that. Take a look at that wolf – isn’t he stunning? We have a couple of wolves in our neighborhood, lots of woods for their den, etc. And we have marveled at them! They are beautiful! So this stamp set was a must for me, when I had options of choice for FREE product. This card has several layers: card base is Thick Basic White, next layer is Smoky Slate with a Basic White embossed panel, adhered ton the card base with dimensionals. And oh yes, the embossing folder is Timeworn Type 3D. The next layer is Smoky Slate and a panel of Gingham Cottage plaid in Smoky Slate. Around that is wrapped Gray Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, and tied with a simple knot. Yes, I did add a glue dot under the knot. You also see three Classic Matte Dots in dark gray. This was adhered with dimensionals. To the upper right is the wolf stamped in Memento Black on a Basic White piece and adhered with dimensionals on the right and liquid glue on the left. I also stamped the sentiment in Memento ink and adhered it in the same fashion: dimensionals on the right, liquid glue on the left.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine, inside

For the inside of the card, I stamped just part of the wolf (as though he is going across our front yard) in Memento Black ink on a Basic White panel, adhered it to Smoky
Slate and then into the card base.

Stampin' Up! Stylish Sketches, Masculine w/ envelope

For the envelope, more of the same Smoky Slate Gingham Cottage DSP on the flap and another wolf on the front, stamped in Memento Black ink. I love this wolf! Could be because we have seen a couple of wolves on a daily basis here. And the image is like a true sketch, with extra lines and all. What a fun stamp! Masculine cards do not come easily for me, but with this stamp I can see several possibilities. YAY!! I’ll list dimensions of each of the layers at the end of the post.

Some of the products to make this card are from the 2022 -2023 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other two catalogs available right now are the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Catalog which shows all the FREE items offered by Stampin’ Up! Jul 1-Aug 31.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Sympathy

Good Saturday morning! A dear woman friend passed away this week and I needed a sympathy card for her husband. I pulled out the Sun Prints DSP and Natural Prints Dies to get a start. Gosh, Stampin’ Up has some gorgeous Designer Series Papers! I wanted something fairly plain for this card ~ and the husband may not appreciate the handmade card, but I’m hoping the rest of the family will. You see, I have this ‘thing’ about handmade cards/ gifts/ foods, I give from the heart and so these things are giving a part of me. This card is very simple, but it’s still a gift from the heart.

Stampin' Up Masculine Sympathy

I began with a Starry Sky card base and this shadow-like piece of Sun Prints DSP. On my desk were these die cut in vellum sprays from the Organic Beauty Dies and I die cut one more in Basic White using the Natural Prints Dies. On another piece of the Sun Prints DSP, I stamped this sentiment ‘frame’ using the Lovely & Lasting stamp set and Gray Granite ink. I then stamped the sentiment in the center using the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and Gray Granite ink. I punched it out with the Lovely Labels Punch. I added the natural sprays to the back with Stampin’ Seal, then added dimensionals and attached it to the Sun Prints DSP. I felt it needed something else so made a double bow, kind of folded it in half, put a glue dot on it and slipped it under the banner. I added a piece of Basic White behind the DSP, put dimensionals on this and attached it to the card front.

Stampin' Up Masculine Sympathy

I kept the inside very simple… just the sentiment from Inspired Thoughts stamp set stamped in Gray Granite ink on the Basic White panel. I adhered this to the inside of the card and that was it.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Sympathy

For the envelope I used more of the Gray Granite piece of the Sun Prints DSP for the flap and called it enough. As I look at the finished card, it feels like it needs more layers of the natural ‘sprays’, but then I think of the individual to whom this is being sent and my gut says no. In other words, I’m not entirely happy with the card, but considering the recipient, it will be just right.

Products to make this card are from the 2022-2023 AnnualCatalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. The other two catalogs available right now are the Jul-Dec 2022 Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Catalog. When ordering, please also use my current host code: YM6ZTUJE.

Stampin’ Up! Masculine Birthday Cards

Good Sunday morning to you! I have a couple of fairly quick and easy masculine birthday cards for you today using the Rings of Love DSP that is FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase! Let’s take a look.

Stampin' Up! Masculine Birthday Card
Stampin' Up! Masculine cards

Isn’t this Rings of Love DSP gorgeous? It’s as though it’s watercolored in shades of blue with a bit of green too. In the card at left I have die cut three rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles Dies to make this fairly clean & simple card. I DID emboss the Basic White panel using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. And… big note here, stamp on the panel PRIOR TO embossing! The birds are from Let’s Set Sail stamp set and stamped in Memento Black ink. The sentiment on the card front is from Wildflower Path stamp set. Steps… just in case I’ve confused you.

  • Die cut three rectangles using Stitched Rectangles Dies from Rings of Love DSP. Place on the Basic White panel to indicate where the birds should be stamped.
  • Stamp birds in Memento Black ink with the Let’s Set Sail stamp set on Basic White panel
  • Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink with the Wildflower Path stamp set on same panel
  • Emboss Basic White panel with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder
  • Place rectangles once more, adhere the two bottom ones, then put dimensional on third rectangle and attach
  • Add this panel to a Night of Navy piece just slightly larger
  • Add this completed panel to a Thick Basic White card base with dimensionals ~ and the front is done.

For the second card, I used my Stamparatus to make the stamping quite easy. And… this idea came from a team mate, Akiko Sudano – thank you Akiko! The stamp set is Biggest Wish

  • With the DSP in the Stamparatus and knowing I wanted to stamp the ‘Happy” from bottom to top, I stamped that word in full strength Night of Navy ink.
  • I moved the Stamparatus plate to the next ‘grid’ and stamped again, this time re-inking, stamping off on a separate scrap and stamping on the DSP
  • I moved the plate one more ‘grid’ and did not re-ink but stamped immediately. This gave three gradations of the word
  • Remove that word, place ‘birthday’ on the DSP, bring the Stamparatus plate down to pick up stamp, ink with Parakeet Party ink.
  • Clean stamp, re-ink with VersaMark, stamp again. Sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
  • Adhere this completed piece to a panel of Night of Navy card stock.
  • Cut a strip of Parakeet Party card stock and add to the Night of Navy panel. Wrap two lengths of 2022-2024 In Color Bakers Twine in Starry Sky around this strip, tie a know and secure in place under the knot with a glue dot.
  • Add three 2022- 2024 In Color Matte Dots in Starry Sky.
  • Put dimensionals on back of panel & add to Thick basic White card base ~ and this card front is done!

Card to left: stamp splotch using Garden Green ink, stamped off and Oceanfront stamp set. Stamp over it with the sentiment: Night of Navy ink and the Hello Beautiful stamp set… all on a Basic White panel. Add this to a Night of Navy card stock then to the inside of the card – finis!

Card to right: stamp sentiment in Night of navy ink using the Hello Beautiful stamp set. Add a strip of Rings of Love DSP to the bottom of the Basic White panel. Adhere this to a Night of navy piece then to the inside of the card – finis!

As you can see, both envelopes were treated the same… a panel of Rings of Love DSP adhered to the flap. Each card is different, yet using the same DSP and I love that – it shows versatility! And, I can’t decide which card I prefer. Would love to know what you think!

Products to make this card are from the Jul- Dec 2022 Annual Catalog. If you do not have a demonstrator and need catalogs please reach out to me – happy to send one to you.
