Stampin’ Up! Marvelous Nature Earthen Elegance Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Sunday!  The calendar shows T – 2 days to lift off to Dublin!  My is-it-done calendar shows….T-35 days!  That – in case you were wondering – is a disconnect.  Not ever with the newest, fuzziest math – the kind that asks a kid to do 10 steps to get the answer to “15 divided by 3” – can make that work out, y’all!! But – regardless – it’s coming!

My card today is a CASE of a sample in the new catalog – it’s actually the card that made me take a second look at the Marvelous Nature stamp set.  I combined it with new colors, a little Exposed Brick embossing and some Earthen Elegance DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Two Pumpkins Masculine Hello Card

Good morning, y’all!  Happy Monday from the Happiest Place on Earth!!  When you read this I’ll be…on the treadmill or at the breakfast buffet!!  As I type this on Sunday evening, I confess I can’t tell you which one is on my list for the morning.  That question has to be answered by Morning Mary.  NIGHT Mary says…neither – stay asleep, goofus! 🤷‍♀️

The card I made for you today features a Fall fave – the Hello Harvest stamp set with its pretty and bundled Rustic Pumpkins Dies, with a little Rustic Harvest DSP to set the color stage!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Rugged Charming Sentiments Masculine Thank You Card

Happy Tuesday!  Did you all have a good three-day weekend?  Ours was a bit of a wash-out – it rained much of each day!  Which meant – a lot of inside time for us!  Not altogether a bad thing, really!

My card today is a special request – needed a masculine thank you for handyman work done well.  Not hunting or fishing.  Maybe some woods….hmmmm.

So – I put on my crafty thinking cap and…pulled out the Rugged Icons die set – with its power drill die.  And then some Neutrals DSP – a couple of sentiments from Charming Sentiments.  And then I let myself use some woodsy elements from the Grassy Grove set on the inside – I mean..the work was done at a Rocky Mountain house so….it seemed right!  Take a look-see:

Regardless – please remember what tomorrow is all about, would you??  Some Gave All.  🙂

My card today is a card with a masculine flair – from the cool Wildlife Wonder stamp set.  I used some He’s The Man DSP for the base of the card.  And it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new Stylish Shapes dies play a pretty important role!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! May’s Batter Up Paper Pumpkin and a Peek at June’s Kit

Good morning, y’all!  While you’re reading this, I’ll be winging my way across the country.  Or…flying from New Jersey to Atlanta.  I’m not really sure.  I DO know that I won’t be home quite yet!

I’m pretty sure I’ll find my May Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! waiting for me – but by the time I figure out what time zone and state I’m in….😳…there’s no telling when I’ll get to it.  So – I wanted to let you get a peek at it and to ALSO give you a sneak peek at the June 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Expressions in Color!

The May Paper Pumpkin Kit was called Batter Up and it made 9 fun baseball themed cards and coordinating envelopes!

Stampin’ Up! Well Suited for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

I figured it was maybe time to do a masculine card for you and I even went a little cray cray and made it clean-and-simple.  Well – you know.  CAS for me!   I used the cool Handsomely Suited bundle and some of the coordinating Well Suited DSP.  Take a look-see:


And here’s our sketch!

Several of the elements I included are inspired by The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! I went across the diagonal (die cut-embossing-blue):

I started with some of the Well Suited DSP that I matted on Basic Black for the card front.

I used a Stitched Rectangle Die – and, by running it thru my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine twice and moving the die – I made a longer Basic White rectangle die cut than I had a die for.

I embossed that die cut in the Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the long tie die in the Suit & Tie Dies, I cut a tie from another design in the Well Suited DSP.  I also cut the little top-of-the-tie piece from the same paper.  This piece I popped on the top of the die cut tie with a Stampin’ Dimensional (that was cut in half).

I adhered the tie to the embossed white panel with Liquid Glue.

On another piece of Basic White, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the Handsomely Suited sentiment twice – once in Night of Navy and again in Poppy Parade.

I cut the Night of Navy sentiment using a Stitched Nested Label.  From the Poppy Parade sentiment, I used my Paper Trimmer to cut just the words “Father’s Day”.  I popped that strip onto the larger sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I popped the layered sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Finally, I adhered a Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone onto the tie as a sparkly tie-tac and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a Handsomely Suited tie in Poppy Parade and a second sentiment in Night of Navy to a Basic White panel.  I gave the tie another Holiday Rhinestone Jewel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Poppy Parade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Handsomely Suited tie in Poppy Parade on the front…


…and more of the Well Suited DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila! I love the tailored look that you can create with this Handsomely Suited bundle and the Well Suited DSP, don’t you?  It’s ready to help you with all the Father’s Day and masculine birthday cards that you need!

I hope you like!
