Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Sneak Peek for the Around the World Blog Hop

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day!!  And welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.   I hope you’ll sit down and spend a little time with us – regardless of where YOU are in the world! 🙂  I know you’re going to see some awesome projects!

Like most hops, we have a theme each month – and this month’s is “Something New – Something Old”!  That’s pretty easy right now – especially with the Pre-Order/Sneak Peek we demonstrators got from the new Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021 Sale-A-Bration Brochure!! 🙂

So….I pulled out the fun Handsomely Suited bundle – with Suit & Ties Dies– and the masculine-themed Well Suited DSP.  Take a look-see!

The layout for this one is loosely inspired by this week’s CAS(E)This Sketch challenge.

And the colors are a nod to the Cupcake Inspiration challenge.

So…being that this was my first go with the Suit & Tie Dies, I used the samples in the Mini Catalog to help me design my bespoke suit!

I first cut a piece of the Well Suited DSP in a quiet Basic Gray pinstrip to the size of my card front (3 3/4″ x 5″).  Then, using the “V” die in Suite & Ties – I cut out the front of the suit.

I adhered the “suit” to a piece of Whisper White cardstock – making sure to NOT use any Liquid Glue around the bottom of the “V”.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Night of Navy and a Pacific Point mat.

I stamped a tie image in Night of Navy on Pacific Point and cut it with the die in the Suite & Tie set.

And – I cut a “shirt collar” in Whisper White.

I slid the end of the tie into the bottom of the “V” behind the DSP and adhered it to the piece of Whisper White.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the collar on – making sure the top of the tie was tucked in.

I used the Suit-collar die and cut another piece of the Basic Gray pinstripe Well Suited DSP and popped that in place with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided a button was in order, so I cut one from Night of Navy with the die in the set and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Handsomely Suited sentiment in Night of Navy on a piece of Whisper White and punched it with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Sorry.  Had to do it!

I added some “faux stitches” with my Pacific Point Stampin’ Write Marker.

I used the little “pocket” die in the Suit & Tie Dies to cut two flowery pockets, which I adhered – pointy ends up – to the back of the Tailored Tag sentiment.  Then I popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tip:  as I look at the picture above – I can just see the Dimensional under the suit collar.  When you make this card – use Black Stampin’ Dimensionals! 😉

I added a few Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – one to the sentiment and one to the tie (like a tie tack) and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Handsomely Suited in Night of Navy ink to a Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped a line of ties across the bottom – alternating between Night of Navy and Pacific Point.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to Night of Navy and Pacific Point mats and into my Basic Gray card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the ties across the front…

…and a little of the flowery Well Suited DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a really cool stamp set and dies, y’all!  Perfect for manly birthday or Father’s Day cards!  The Handsomely Suited stamp set – with the bundled Suit & Tie Dies lets you really get creative with your “clothing”!

I’ve even heard tell that you can make a lab coat!  I think my vet men and women NEED that, don’t you?!?

I love love love the papers in the Well Suited DSP!  The colors are great – and the designs are perfectly suited (sorry.  not sorry) for the tie dies in the bundle!

Right?!?  I hope you like – and are making a list!!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Stampin’ Up! Geared Up Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! This is another installment of the Joint Blog Hop between the Happy Inkin’ Thursday and Happy Stampers Blog Hop ladies!  I hope you really enjoy all the inspiration you can get from our talented folks!

I decided to try out some more of the goodies from the Classic Garage suite – the Geared Up Garage stamp set with the bundled Garage Gears Thinlits and the Classic Garage DSP.  Did you know that the dies in the Thinlits will cut out the images on the DSP?  Well – take a look-see!

No cutting was fussy anywhere on this card!! 🙂

As usual, we had a sketch and a color challenge – and could use either or both.  I definitely used the sketch – and…sorta skirted the edges of the color palette!

             

I also think this dovetails perfectly with this week’s Watercoolor Wednesday Challenge!

I started with a piece of the Classic Garage DSP and embossed it using the large gear die in the Garage Gears Thinlits – using the Impressions Pad and thin silicone mat (the blue one) in the Big Shot Embossing Mats set.  Then I matted it on Pumpkin Pie with Liquid Glue for the card front.

The middle layer is another piece of the Classic Garage DSP, matted on Pumpkin Pie and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the banner, I used a third design from the DSP pack, cut it into a banner with my Paper Snips, and then added some faux stitches with my Journaling Pen.  It, too, is adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut the fun large image from the DSP using the large die from Garage Gears and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

The sentiment, from Geared Up Garage, is stamped in Crushed Curry on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Tailored Tag Punch,  I added the faux stitches with the Journaling Pen and popped it onto the card front wit Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the embellishments – I cut another single gear from the DSP with a handy die.  Then I added two Classic Garage Metal Elements with Glue Dots, stuck the gear on with a little Liquid Glue, and adhered that bow tied with Black/Silver 1/4″ Striped Metallic Ribbon.  Yes, I DO think men CAN handle a bow now and then, especially when it’s all manly black and silver!  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set in Crushed Curry to a Very Vanilla panel. Then I cut and adhered a couple more gear groups!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

On the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added a “cloud” from Geared Up Garage in Crushed Curry.  Over that, I adhered a couple more gears with Liquid Glue…

…and then I added another piece of the Classic Garage DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This was already a fun suite of goodies – but…that the dies in the Garage Gears Thinlits MATCH the images on the Classic Garage DSP – well…THAT’S amazeballs! It really notches up the awesomeness of the Geared Up Garage and all its friends in the suite!  And – I know you’re going to love all the birthday sentiment options from Itty Bitty Birthdays!  Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Large Numbers Guy Greetings Birthday Card

Late breaking news! I just found out the 4th-of-July card that I made with the Timeless Textures stamp set was selected as an Artist Pick at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  I want to thank the good folks at HSS for picking my card out of the really great cards that were submitted.  When you have a chance – go check them – and the other winners! – out, okay? You can click right here! If you want to see how I made this card, just click the picture! 🙂

Touches of Texture 4th of July 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

 


Happy Hawwmp Day (I checked the calendar – it’s for sure Wednesday!), y’all! 🙂  Which means the week is half over – which means there’s only two more work days ‘afore I get to head for the home-drome!  Of course that also means I should be busy packing my stuff back into the boxes and totes I brought it here in.  Or, for you grammarians….the boxes and totes in which I done brung it!

I have a quick – and sorta sad! – update about Duck Duck.  It appears that, although wild geese mate for life, if domestic geese do the same, well….it’s with other geese.  Appears they don’t stick with humans for good.

Duck Duck seems to have flown…well…waddled…the coop pond.

Yes – it’s true.  Or true as of the writing of this post.  Wayne took her her dinner and….she was gone.  He spied her back next door, where we believe she hails from…with two plain ole white geese.

The kind you’d put an apron on by your front porch.  Only…like…you know….real!

Guess she got her chopped cabbage and watermelon and duck crumbles and cracked corn and showers when it was hot and….sob….just….SOB….LEEEEEEEFFFFFFTTTTTT!!!! (I don’t know how to make a crying emoticon, so pretend there’s one of those right here!).

Maybe she just misses me so terribly that…no, Mary.  No.  You know what they say…if you love something, let it waddle away.  If it loves you back, she’ll return.

Sniff…..

Give me a minute to collect myself.

sniff…

Okay.  I’m good.  I’m pulling up my big girl panties and getting on with my life.

Today’s card is kind of a fun one – I actually chuckled out loud while I was making it (before Wayne called, that is).  I played with a couple of challenges – and let me show you the first one before I show you the card.

Just Us Girls had a photo challenge.  JUGS #353 was all about golf.

JUGS #353 Sketch
So – I used some of the Large Number and Large Letter Framelits.  And some Labeler Alphabet.  And I made a Guy Greetings kinda card.  Take a look-see:
