I know it’s early, but this Clubhouse Bundle makes such perfect Father’s Day cards, I had to do it!
My inspiration for today’s card was the sketch at TGIF.
This fantastic golf club from the Golf Club Die Set came to mind, and I cut five from Silver Foil. Then, I glued the golf clubs to Seaside Spray Cardstock that I cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.
I used the second largest Rectangles Stitched Die to cut the background from Whisper White Cardstock. How do you like the embossing? It’s the new Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder, which coordinates with the Clubhouse Bundle. I photographed my card on an argyle design from the Country Club Designer Paper. Isn’t it great how Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything?
“Happy Father’s Day” is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green ink, and cut with a Golf Clubs Die. The Garden Green Cardstock surrounding it was also cut with a Golf Club Die.
Before gluing the Argyle background to the Thick Whisper White card base, I wound Metallic Silver Thread around the middle, and taped it to the back. To complete the card, I positioned the golf club rectangles on Mini-Dimensionals, and glued the sentiment in the middle.

Here we go with a masculine card; not that women wouldn’t like it also. But, most men would choose to be in the mountains, rather than in a store shopping, if you know what I mean.
This was my first time using the Mountain Air Stamp Set, and it was fun discovering the stamping possibilities. It has the unique quality of being a “reversible” stamp set.
I began by stamping the solid mountain range in Rich Razzleberry Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Then, I turned it over and stamped the detailed mountain range. Next, I stamped the detailed row of trees, and used a Sponge Dauber to fill in the space between the base of the mountains and the tree tops.
After stamping the mountain scene, I used a Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting, and gave this a 1/16″ border of Basic Black Cardstock. Finally, I glued this layer to a Rich Razzleberry card base.
The Mountain Air Stamp Set comes “bundled” with a die set, Majestic Mountains. It has a wonderful tree that looks great cut from Basic Black Cardstock.
The sentiment, “Rest & Relax, you deserve it,” is from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, and used a Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.
The colors from TGIF are not colors I would normally choose. This is what’s fun about challenges!
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you can see the possibilities this set has to offer. You can click on the pictures in my Product List for more details.
Have a great day!
How do you make a paper pineapple?
You buy Stampin’ Up’s Tropical Oasis Designer Paper and In The Tropics Die Set!
I know I’ve already given you sneak peeks of some favorites from the 2020 Mini Catalog, but the Tropical Oasis Suite is at the top of my list. I admit, I LOVE Hawaii., and this suite takes me there. It’s on pages 38-40 in the 2020 Mini Catalog.
I began by using two of the dies from In The Tropics die set to cut the pineapple. Can you see how I used the Tropical Oasis Designer Paper? The leafy part of the top has pre-cut sections for added dimension. How fun!
The pineapple is resting on a brown, mat design, also in the DSP collection. It really came to life when I embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, which is included in the suite.
“Aloha,” also in the die set, was cut from Noble Peacock Foil. It’s the perfect word to complete the suite. Don’t you think?
I’ll be adding today’s project to the TGIF gallery, where “Foil” is being highlighted.
Only a short time to wait until Jan. 3, 2020, when you can have it all, by ordering the Tropical Oasis Suite. However, the items can be purchased individually, as you’ll see in my Product List.
The Noble Peacock Foil and Crumb Cake Cardstock aren’t in the suite, but there are some fun surprises in the Suite that I haven’t mentioned. Check it out!
One of the most beautiful dies in my collection is the tree from the Sweet Silhouettes Die Set. Here it is, cut from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
I knew I wanted to use this tree as soon as I saw this week’s TGIF challenge.
I decided a “white on white” card would be perfect for the anniversary card I had in mind.
First, I embossed a Whisper White Cardstock layer with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. Then, I glued a white band, bordered in Gold Foil, across the middle of the layer. Next, I placed the tree on top of the band, and glued the layer to a Thick Whisper White card base.
TIP: I glued the branches, not the leaves, so they would lift, creating shadows and dimension.
The Sweet Silhouettes Die Set also has the word, “forever,” which I cut from Gold Foil, and glued on top of the tree, in the middle of the band.
The tiny pearls were the final touch.
Keep scrolling to see my short Product List for today’s card. You’ll notice, there’s no ink. Sometimes you can let sensational dies do all the work!
Have a wonderful day!
The year 2020 is fast approaching, so this was on my mind as I made today’s card.
New Year’s Dreams
Normally, I don’t begin with the sentiment, but the words from the Playful Penguin Stamp Set would take center stage. I stamped “May your New Year’s dreams come true” in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting. I love the beautiful font in the fancy frame! Don’t you?
The bottom half of the card front is a piece of Vellum Cardstock, embossed by the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder.
The top half has a swirl that I found in the Stargazing stamp Set. I colored the Red Rubber stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers in five “Bright” colors, and stamped on Whisper White cardstock, leaving a wonderful, rainbow image.
To complete the card, I added sequins from two assortments, Woven Threads and Iridescent, matching the colors in the swirl.
I was inspired by two challenges:
The penguins are so cute, this sentiment is easy to overlook, and I’m so glad I found it.
Another discovery is on page 31 of the new 2020 Mini Catalog; a stamp set with sentiments sized to fit the Ornate Frames perfectly! Yay! The Ornate Frames are carrying over from the Holiday Catalog.
So, you can add Perfectly Framed #151668 to your “want list,” and buy the Ornate Frames today!
All the supplies for today’s card are in my Product List. Thanks for shopping with me, and have a great day!
More Pressed Petals for today’s birthday card. I’m so happy that the Pressed Petals Washi Tape is still available.
Knowing I wanted to used the Pressed Petals Washi Tape, I chose a piece of the coordinating Pressed Petals Designer Paper for the border on the left side. I backed it with cardstock for thickness, and used a Magnolia Memory Die for cutting. Don’t you like the pretty, curved edge?
I placed the border, on Dimensionals, on a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that was embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder. Then, I glued this layer to a Thick Very Vanilla card base.
“Happy” is from the Merry Christmas Die Set, cut from Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock, and layered for thickness. I wanted “Happy” to be subdued, blending in with the script embossing. After positioning “Happy,” I continued on with “birthday.”
“Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, stamped in Crumb Cake Ink on Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock. I used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting, and placed it on Dimensionals.
Behind “birthday” are three, Washi Tape Petals. They really make this card come to life! I added three, small leaves, using a die from the Bouquet Bunch Die Set, and Pressed Petals DSP (the Mossy Meadow music design.)
My layout is from the TGIF challenge.
This card reminds me of stationery, and the long letters I used to write. I can smell the scented fragrance now! If you’d like to make a similar card, you can order supplies by clicking on the pictures in my Product List below. Thank you, and have a wonderful day!
