Way To Goat Birthday Card

The Way To Goat Stamp Set makes me laugh! It’s great for masculine cards for guys with a sense of humor. Right? Not to say that gals won’t enjoy it also, and I’ll be making “frilly” versions.

I ate it

 

Instructions

Cut Crumb Cake Cardstock to 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, fold in the middle at 4 1/4″, making your card base.

Layer with Misty Moonlight Cardstock, cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles Die.

You’ll find the piece that looks like a screen in the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Paper. Trim this section from the whole, and color the backside with a Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. Glue with tiny (I mean minuscule) dots to the Misty Moonlight layer.

The dotted strip is 2020-2022 In Color 6X6 Paper. Cut a piece 1″ X 5 1/8″, and glue on top of the screen.

 

Now for the goat who is ashamed of himself, or, he should be! Stamp him in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and color with Stampin’ Blends: Light & Dark Crumb Cake, and Bronze.

Stamp “I got you a cake…” next to him in Crumb Cake Ink.

Cut with the 3 1/4″ X 1 3/4″ Stitched Rectangles Die. Layer for thickness, and attach with Dimensionals.

 

Stamp “…but I ate it” in Crumb Cake Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. Cut so that the words are closer to the right side, and trim the left side to butt (no pun intended, LOL) against the dotted strip.

Now, let’s hope he doesn’t eat the card!

 

My layout was inspired by the Paper Players.

Positive Thoughts with Ornate Layers

Today I’m sharing a card using a favorite “carry-over” stamp set from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Positive Thoughts. I was so excited when Stampin’ Up! created dies to coordinate with it (Nature’s Thoughts), and both are available in the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. They are in my Product List below, and clicking on the pictures takes you to my store for ordering.

Featuring: Positive Thoughts Stamp Set, Nature's Thoughts Dies, Ornate Layers Dies, Ornate Floral Embossing, Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon; #friendshipcard #positivethoughts #naturesthoughts #ornatelayers #ornatefloralembossing #tictactoechallenges #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #papercrafting #cardchallenges

Hugs Prayers Love

 

The card base is Bermuda Bay, topped with a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, that I embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. Prior to embossing, I used the largest Ornate Layers Die to give it that pretty edge. Then, I taped a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the white layer, and glued it to the card base.

This is currently my favorite ribbon, and the reason I chose it for my Host Code gift for the month of June. If you order a minimum of $50.00 in June, I will mail you the ribbon in July. You’ll find more details below.

 

Next, I used a second Ornate Layers Die to cut the center strip from Coastal Cabana Cardstock. Before attaching it with Dimensionals, I stamped “Hugs Prayers Love” from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay Ink.

 

The sprig was created with a Positive Thoughts Stamp, VersaMark, White Embossing Powder, Pool Party Cardstock, the Heat Tool, and a Nature’s Thoughts Die.

The last detail was adding a bow of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon, and some Woven Threads Sequins.

 

Have you played in a Tic Tac Toe challenge? My card would fit in two rows: flowers, die-cut, embossing or girly, die-cut, friendship. It’s fun to design a card to fit the parameters, and you should give it a try!

 

My June Gifts:

“Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon features a crinkly texture. This flexible and soft craft ribbon is easy to work with. Tie it around cards, add it to tags, or use it for treat packaging. You can also dye this ribbon to customize the color for any project using our Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills or Stampin’ Blends (sold separately).” * 1/4″ * 10 yards

Just add my Host Code (TPYR7XQ2) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of June, and I will send the ribbon to you in July.

This month’s drawing will be for one of the favorite stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration, The Gang’s All Meer. Cute, huh?Your name will be entered in the drawing when you place a minimum $100 order in June. I’ll announce the winner July 1st.

Showered With Love

Under My Umbrella is such a fun stamp set, especially when used with the Umbrella Builder Punch. And, there’s a new stamp set, Pretty Parasol (p. 44 in the 2020-2021 catalog) that coordinates with the punch, which you can order beginning June 3rd.

How do you like the embossing on the Thick Whisper White card base? I used a new embossing folder, Tasteful Textile, which is also available June 3rd.

Showered with love

 

The Call Me Clover and Whisper White Cardstock layers were created using two Stitched Rectangles Dies. I glued the layers together and raised them on the card base with strips of Dimensionals; you know, those left-over edges.

 

I made the umbrella with a stamp from Under My Umbrella and a scrap of Pineapple Punch Designer Paper. After stamping the umbrella in Memento Black Ink, I used the Umbrella Builder Punch for cutting, and layered it for thickness.

The shower of hearts was made with a Stitched Be Mine Die and scraps of cardstock in three colors: Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo. The larger hearts are on Mini-Dimensionals, and the smaller ones are glued flat.

 

“Showered with love” is from Under My Umbrella, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die.

TIP: I made the sentiment label shorter by using a larger die to cut one end.

 

My layout is from the Paper Players.

 

My colors are from Fab Friday. Two of the colors are retiring; Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch. Click on the Last Chance Products below to see if they are still available.

Forever Greenery Sneak Peek

Today’s “clean & simple” masculine card is giving you a sneak peek of three new, 2020-2021 products. Actually, four, if you count the DSP I’m using for photography. It’s from In Good Taste, and I can’t say enough about how fabulous it is. There’s a great variety (24 sheets) of photographed images, and it was at the top of my list!

Forever Greenery for Guys

 

First of all, the card base is a new color, Misty Moonlight.  I combined it with a stripe of Forever Greenery Designer Paper, using four strips that I cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer. I glued three strips at an angle, as shown, and one horizontal strip underneath the middle, angled strip.

The entire collection of DSP is absolutely yummy! There  is a question mark in my Product List below, but if you click on it, you can see all of the luscious designs.

 

The strips are glued to a Whisper White Cardstock layer that I embossed with the new Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. I remember saying someone needed to take the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder away from me, because I used it so much. I think I can finally let go of it, because this beauty is going to become a fast favorite!

 

“Happy Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, Stamped in Night of Navy Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I placed it on Mini-Dimensionals and my “clean & simple,” masculine birthday card was complete.

 

I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

And, the Paper Players for a “clean & simple” card with men in mind.

Framed Birds

 

I began today’s card by stamping the bird image in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I used Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light and Dark Granny Apple Green & Light and Dark Pool Party. A Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write marker was used to color the flowers. 

 

After coloring, I used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting, which gave the birds a pretty frame. Don’t you think?

 

To add some texture to the Thick Whisper White card base, I embossed the card front with the Scripty Embossing Folder.

“Thank you” is from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink.

 

I was inspired by the colors at the Paper Players.

Special Someone Mouse Hello

What a surprise it was to have a special “little hello” from a mouse in my house. Literally! Keep reading.

Featuring: Special Someone Stamp Set, Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, Ornate Frames Dies, Nature's Thoughts Dies, Special Day Dies, Friendly Silhouettes Dies; #mouseonacard #friendshipcards #specialsomeone #alittlehello #friendlysilhouettes #naturesthoughts #ittybittygreetings #animalsoncards #cardstomakeyousmile #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

Mouse Hello

 

Here he is; the real thing, just making himself at home on our guest room bed. Guess he thought he was a guest!

He was kind enough to stay still for picture taking, and capturing. There he remained until my husband got home to dispose of him. Long story about how he made his way into our house, but I’m confident his friends will remain outdoors.

 

Amazing, but I can still look at our mouse from the Special Someone Stamp Set, and think he’s cute. So, here he is, stamped in Early Espresso and Sahara Sand Inks on Sahara Sand Cardstock, and cut with his Special Day Die.

 

I gave him an OUTDOOR field, cut with a Friendly Silhouettes Die from Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper. This was glued to Crumb Cake Cardstock, cut with a Nature’s Thoughts Die.

 

The green stripe is also Peaceful Poppies DSP, adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base.

“A little hello” is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. I like the little hole that’s part of the die, and Linen Thread fits right through it.

 

The theme at the Paper Players this week is “cards that make you smile.” I hope this did the trick!
