Oopsy!

Today’s card is a little humor and little Get Well.  I laugh every time I look at the Back On Your Feet stamp set.  The critters are just adorable and the sayings match perfectly.  Sadly, I have only used it a few times.  A Friend had an accident last week so I knew this was the set to pull out.

 

 

I love Mr. Turtle and his facial expression!  And when I was looking for the proper background paper, I saw this and knew I had found the proper one.  With the bruising in mind, that was what I saw in this paper.  When the bruises turn all of those exciting blues and greens, with a purple added in!  Yes, my friend has those.

This paper is from the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper.  It is another of my “back side of the paper” finds.  The front , sort of embossed, side would have worked also, but I liked this one a bit better.  Plus it had the green I used for the turtle.\

Thank you for stopping in today!  I very much appreciate it and hope you are having a good day.

Barbecue Birthday

I have a difficult time of designing a masculine card.  From posts I read, I believe that to be true for a lot of us.  Today I am sharing one that pairs two very common “guy” items.

 

 

I paired the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set with the country Club Designer Series Paper for a bright guy birthday card.  And yes……I know women play golf and barbecue!  LOL!!!  But, these were two products that I had not previously used.  And since I was thinking masculine, it is what I created.

I love the sentiment from the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set !  It brings to mind “fire” and we have definitely had many of those on our back deck!  But the brightness of the Country Club DSP is a perfect pairing for the barbecue.  I love bright colors, but if you do not, there are other more subdued “argyle” prints as well as golf themed prints.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are able to get some crafting in during this difficult time of separation.

Tropical Birthday

I have a masculine birthday card today.  I had not made a card like this in quite a while.  But saw one from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrtor Jeanie Stark recently.  I looked in my card file I have for different folds and did not find this one. I figured out the measurements as I went along and am really happy with this different fold.  After I was finished, I looked on my wall and there was the card I remembered!  DUH!

 

 

The star of this show is the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I love this sheet from the stack.  Those cars remind me of the beach and the Beach Boys songs!  The bottom piece of DSP is the opposite side of the paper.  I was intending to use the Coastal Weave embossing folder, which is part of this suite of products, but it was not necessary.

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set.  I layered it on Mint Macaron using the Timeless Label Punch and the Story Label Punch.  It is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals and does double duty of keeping the top flap down.

Here is a look at the inside.

 

 

The inside card pulls out and there is plenty of room to slide a gift card in there as well.  If you follow me at all, you know how I love gift card holders!  I hope you will give this one a try.  I have included all of the measurements below.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I will be happy to assist you in making this sweet card.

Measurements:

  • Base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/4 and 6 1/4  (It ends up as 5 1/2 X 4 instead of 4 1/4)
  • NOTE:  The two “flaps” are the same measurements, it does not matter which you choose as the top.
  • Front flap bases are 5 1/4 X 2 ( you need 2)
  • Front DSP is 5 X 1 3/4 ( you need 2)
  • Inside card is 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
  • When securing bottom flap to hold inside card, lay the card in place before peeling off the Tear & Tape to secure the flap.  This ensures you have room to easily slide the card in and out.  If you are adding a gift card, lay it down there as well prior to securing.

Invisible Man

I am sure you questioned my title for today!  I suppose I am once again showing my age.  Except now there is a new movie titled Invisible Man.  When I was young there was a tv show.  And I am not off the subject at all…….When I started this card, I intended to use the parts of the Well Dressed stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  As I stamped them I saw I had sort of worked up the body.  So a card is born.  LOL!

 

 

I hope my vision is not totally lost on you.  I may have a more vivid imagination. 🙂

I stamped the various pieces from the stamp set and thought it looked like the invisible man, so I stuck with that.  Because I had already decided on the Country Club Designer Series Paper piece, I didn’t want to cover it too much .  That necessitated the funky cutting around the shoes.  I can see everyone’s eyes rolling now! LOL!!

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope I haven’t spoiled your weekend with my craziness.  I also wanted to share another card using the marker to rubber stamp coloring technique.  I talked about that in yesterday’s post.

Merry Moose

Today’s card is a winter card as much as for Christmas.  I love mixing the stamps and designer series paper to make cards that are for more than a season.   This one works as a masculine card as well.

 

 

Who doesn’t love a Moose with a scarf?  LOL!!  I wanted to give him a softer look and decided I did not want to fussy cut the scarf in the stamp set.  I adore the Braided Linen Thread and thought the extra piece as a scarf worked.

The trees are from the Merry Moose Bundle as well.  I stamped them once full strength and then again before re-inking to get the different shades of green.  The one on the far left is stamped a third time without re-inking.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I have a cute Halloween card to share tomorrow for Trick or Treat day!

Nautical Smile

I have another card with the Nautical Theme for you today.  I shared one a couple of weeks ago.  You can see that card HERE.    I have to take a break from the holiday themes occasionally for birthdays and other card needs.

 

 

The Designer Series Paper is the star of this card, as is the case with quite a few of my cards.  This one is the Come Sail Away DSP.  I paired it with the Sailing Home stamp set for the lighthouse.  The large SMILE comes from the Daisy Lane stamp set.

The measurements are:

  • 5 1/2 X 8 1/2,  5 3/8 X 4 1/8, 5 1/4 X 4 for the base and main layers
  • 4 7/8 X 2 1/8 , 4 3/4 X 2 for the rope DSP layer
  • 3 3/4 X 2 1/8, 3 1/4 X 2 for the lighthouse layer
