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!!
