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!

Stampin’ Up! Orchid Oasis Birthday

Happy Friday! At least, that’s the day I think it is… sometimes when a holiday gets in the mix, my days get all messed up. Does that happen to you? Life gets out of sequence and well, there it is. Today’s card is lots of Orchid Oasis. This is becoming one of my favorite new In Colors.

Orchid Oasis Birthday.1

I’ve used the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper adhered to Basic White, put on dimensionals and added to the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper (also in Orchid Oasis) that was wrapped with the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine (yep, Orchid Oasis!). And yes, you can see I tied that twine in a bow at the left side. I like the texture it adds to the card. This piece also got dimensionals and was added to the Bermuda Bay card base. I stamped the sentiment also in Bermuda Bay ink on a Basic White panel. That sentiment comes from the Charming Sentiments Bundle and was die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette Dies. I put mini dimensionals on the back and added it to another piece of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper. This was adhered with liquid glue to the card front. The final touch was the Solid Faceted Gems in Night of Navy. They add a different kind of sparkle to the card. L-O-V-E!

Orchid Oasis Birthday, inside

I kept the inside super simple – just a strip of the same 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper Pack added to the bottom of the Basic White panel, then adhered to the inside of the card.

More of the same 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Paper Pack was added to the envelope. What I love about this card is that it could so easily be a masculine card if needed. And those are sometimes hard to come by. I’ll post dimensions for the card cuts at the bottom of this post as well as the products to make this card. A click of the button will take you to my online store so you can get it all 😁

Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

January is moving right along… the winter cold seems here to stay… not unusual for this time of year. :O) Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! it’s always fun to see what the other team members haver chosen and how fabulously creative they are.

We have an exciting color theme for our hop today and I’ve chosen to use maybe, every color and more.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 3- Color Challenge- Pick At Least 3 Real Red Petal Pink HighlandHeather Heather Highland Pool Party Granny Apple Green'
Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop

This new bundle just arrived Tuesday and I couldn’t wait to play with it. After stamping with Memento Black ink on a Basic White panel, I chose to color the design with Stampin’ Blends using all the colors listed in the challenge: Real red (I used a marker for the berries), Pool Party for the sentiment, Granny Apple Green for all the leaves, and Petal Pink &Flirty Flamingo for extra definition and finally Highland Heather. This became my main card front. I stamped another of the same image on Basic White and die cut it with the Layering Hugs Dies, then colored with the same colors mentioned above. This panel became the top panel on dimensionals. I also die cut the single letters using another one of the dies, from Pool Party card stock and adhered over the letters in the panel. The die cut letters are smaller, can you tell? And I off-set them to make it look as though there were a shadow.I stamped the word BIRTHDAY in Memento ink on a scrap of Basic White and die cut it with this tiny banner. I added a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel to the left of the word, put dimensionals on the back and placed it. Then I added more of the same 2021-2023 In Color Jewels on the top right and bottom left. To me, it brings all the colors together. It’s a very spring-like card :O) I mounted this on a slightly larger Black piece, put dimensionals on the back and attached it to the Pool Party card base. And the front was done!

Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop, inside

For the inside of the card, I stamped this super cute flower three times in Memento Black ink, then colored it with Stampin’ Blends: Granny Apple Green for the leaves, Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo for the flower. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue – love the simplicity since the front is busy.

Sending Hugs Bundle – Happy Inkin’ Th Blog Hop

For the envelope I took the leaf stamp from Sending Hugs stamp set and stamped it randomly on the flap in Memento Black ink, then only once on the envelope front. Again, I like the simplicity of the envelope since the card is busy with color.

Products are listed below so feel free to order away :O) If you do not have a demonstrator and need an Annual Catalog please reach out to me – happy to send one to you. AND… I have the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and the 4 January to 28 February 2022 Sale-a-bration catalogs and can send those as well! When ordering, please also use current host code: R6D2 7PHD.

Staqmpin’ Up! Birthday w/ Christmas Cheer

Hello to Saturday! It’s the weekend and I hope you have some fun plans included in your day. Hubby & I got our Moderna booster yesterday and so far, no side effects. A bit of a sore arm, but that’s common with just about any injection. My card for today is for a friend of ours turning 90! He still drives to work. Yes, I did say work. He thrives on people and has a very sharp mind.

Isn’t this fun? I love the colors :O) And since he’s very Irish, the green is perfect. This is also a bit of a fun fold, ‘cuz of the way the top folds in to rest on the sentiment (which is raised on dimensionals). The DSP is Expressions in Ink SDSP (it has gold!)

Supplies:

  • Christmas Cheer Dies (to die cut the word ‘happy’)
  • Biggest Wish stamp set (BIRTHDAY, friend,& happy on inside)
  • Playful Alphabet Dies (# & 90)
  • Artistically Inked stamp set
  • Gilded Gems
  • Foam Adhesive Sheets (adhered to panel of DSP then die cut)
  • Evening Evergreen card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored on the long side @ 2 1/8 & 4 1/4. Burnish both inward.
  • Mint Macaron card stock 1 7/8 x 5 3/8; 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Basic White card stock 4 x 5 1/4;1 3/4 x 5 1/4; 1 3/4 x 4 (die cut happy); 1 3/4 x 3 (stitched rectangle die cut w/ word
  • Expressions in Ink SDSP 2 x 5 3/8 front top panel); 1 15/16 x 5 3/8 (lower front panel); 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 (die cut sentiment – happy); 2 1/4 x 6 (envelope flap)
  • Gold Foil Sheets (die cuts for # & 90)
  • Evening Evergreen ink (BIRTHDAY)
  • Mint Macaron ink (background for sentiments)
  • Just Jade ink (inside happy)

Directions:

  • Adhere Adhesive Backed Sheets to Expressions in Ink SDSP
  • With the Christmas Cheer Die, die cut the word ‘happy’. HINT… runt the die through once, turn it over and die cut again. This makes certain the die goes through the layers cleanly.
  • With the Stitched Rectangle Dies, die cut the rectangle in Basic White.
  • Remove the backing on the sentiment ‘happy’ and adhere to the stitched rectangle.
  • Adhere the two front panels of Expressions in Ink SDSP to the card base.
  • With Stampin’ Seal, run two lines of the seal on the lower half of the stitched rectangle; fold front lower panel on score line and adhere to the this lower panel. REMEMBER… the stitched rectangle stands up! Refer to photo.
  • Add two Gilded Gems to the Stitched Rectangle and the front is complete.

For the inside…

  • Adhere the smaller Mint Macaron panel & the similar size Basic White panels together. Attach these to the inside of the card – top
  • Adhere the largest Mint Macaron panel to the lower portion of the inside of the card.
  • With the Basic White inside panel, stamp the ‘splotch’ with Mint Macaron ink using the Artistically Inked stamp set.
  • Stamp the word ‘happy’ in Just Jade ink over this ‘splotch’. The word ‘happy’ comes from Biggest Wish stamp set.
  • On the smallest Basic White panel, stamp another ‘splotch’ in stamped off or 2nd generation Mint Macaron ink.
  • Stamp the word BIRTHDAY from the Biggest Wish stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink.
  • Die cut with another Stitched Rectangle Die.
  • Cut a 3/8 x 5 1/4 strip of Expressions in Ink SDSP and adhere to the Basic White panel.
  • Adhere the stitched Rectangle with dimensionals to the Basic White panel. HINT… this allows the upper fold to stand up :O)
  • Die cut the # sign & the two number 90 from Gold Foil scraps and adhere with liquid glue. These dies come from the Playful Alphabet Dies.
  • Adhere three Gilded Gems and the inside is complete!

For the envelope…

  • Add the Expression in Ink SDSP to the envelope flap
  • On the envelope front, stamp the ‘splotch’ in 2nd generation Mint Macaron ink from the Artistically Inked stamp set.
  • Stamp the word friend in Evening Evergreen ink using the Biggest Wish stamp set. FINIS…

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Birthday

Happy Father’s Day to all the men out there! May you feel loved & appreciated for all you do & are.

Today’s card uses the Elegantly Said bundle, Penned Flowers Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder plus a few other elements. It incorporates two of the new In Colors ~ Pale Papaya & Soft Succulent which compliment each other nicely.

Elegantly Said Birthday.1

Golly, this photo is d-a-r-k… ugh. I began by running a panel of the Soft Succulent card stock through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and adhering it directly to the Soft Succulent card base. Next I added a panel of the 2021-2023 In Color 6×6 DSP in Soft Succulent, to a larger panel of Basic White then wrapped Open Weave Ribbon in Pale Papaya around it and tied a bow, and adhered that with liquid glue as well. I had this floral die cut on my desk for a while – it comes from the Penned Flowers Dies and was die cut from Pale Papaya card stock. I adhered that with dots of liquid glue and added a couple of Genial Gems to the floral centers.

Next I stamped the sentiment from Elegantly Said stamp set onto a Basic White piece then punched it out using the Elegant Tag Punch. I also punched a longer piece in Pale Papaya card stock and adhered the two together to create a banner. I put dimensionals on the back and attached it to the card front. I added three more Genial Gems to the banner (this time in green) and the card front was done.

For the inside I added a 1/2″ wide strip of the same 2021-2023 6×6 In Color DSP to a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card – no additional sentiment or stamping – and no photo either 😦 What was I thinking!!! For the envelope I added a panel of the 2021-2023 6×6 In Colore DSP in Soft Succulent to the envelope flap and voila! Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.

Elegantly Said Birthday.2

Stampin’ Up! Birthday

Today’s card is for my sweetheart of a hubby, his birthday! He loves to sail our little 16′ Bullseye and therefore the Sailing Home stamp set is perfect for a card for him.

Sailing home birthday.1

I started by using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Beauty of the Earth DSP to create a rectangle, then stamped the sailboat in Misty Moonlight ink and the birds in Smoky Slate ink. I die cut the same size panel in Basic White and adhered it to the back of the panel for strength. I then die cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles Dies, a Basic White panel. I stamped the anchor in Smoky Slate ink from the Sailing Home stamp set, then the two sentiments. The ‘Happiest…’ sentiment is from All squared Away stamp set and stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. The other sentiment is from Days to Remember stamp set and done in Smoky Slate ink. I added five retired 2020-2022 Enamel Dots in Misty Moonlight, then wrapped Baker’s Twine from the Essentials Pack around the Basic White panel 2 times and tied a knot. I then adhered the sailboat panel with dimensionals. This Basic White panel also got dimensionals and was added to the card base. The card base is Basic White with a panel of Misty Moonlight card stock adhered with liquid glue. This frames the white panel nicely. Card cuts are listed at the end of the post.

Sailing Home Birthday.2

The inside was kept really simple – using the largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies, cut a panel of Basic White, stamp the sentiment from All Squared Away stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink and adhere with liquid glue to a larger Misty Moonlight panel, then attach to the inside of the card – yep, with liquid glue. And the card is complete… 🙂

For the envelope, I took a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock and ran it through the new Bark 3D embossing folder and attached it to the flap. Love this new folder!!!

I’m excited to share with you a new line of creative products called the Kits Collection by Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Up! has taken the guess work out of creativity and done the hard parts, and you get to do the fun stuff: craft! Each kit is all-inclusive and includes the predesigned projects, preprinted pieces, and even the adhesives you need to complete the projects.

There’s a wide variety of kits for all different occasions, and new kits are being added regularly. You can shop the current selection at www.stampinup.com/kits. But hurry! Kits are available only while supplies last! 

Pick the kit that’s right for you!
