SU Masculine Card

SU Nailed It Bundle

March 1, 2017

I am in a swap with a few gals each month, and we decided to play
with the SU Nailed It bundle this time around.

I love a fun fold card so I made this simple one that is easy to mail:


I absolutely love the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder…super cool!
I embossed a piece of Silver Foil which is quite elegant but if you are doing a large number of them, you can use Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil like I did on this card.


I thought the “Nailed it” sentiment fit into a congratulations theme so I used a sentiment
from SU Scenic Sayings on the front of the card. Of course, the Stitched Shapes Framelits always
add a special touch to a card, don’t you think?


I also added the word “YOU” from the SU Jar of Love to finish off the sentiment.

SU High Tide

January 23, 2017

The new SU High Tide stamp set will make you feel like an artist when you are finished making a card. It is so EASY to create a scene with the sand, grass, lighthouse, birds, and water! The shadow on the lighthouse really finishes the scene…


In retrospect, I used Basic Gray for the shadow which I think was a good idea but I carried it through on the birds on the land and in the sky but next time, I think I may use black for both of the birds. What do you think?

A little insight into this card…

As we were watching our Steelers go down the drain last night, my mind wandered off to the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge # 271.  So I inconspicuously excused myself to make this card.


I was thinking of how the light could be captured inside the design element in the sketch. Then my search for a sentiment…YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE…came from the Jar of Love stamp set. There is also one in the Annual catalog’s Hostess Set No Pun Intended.

Look at the neat images you can use to paint your landscape…

SU One Wild Ride


I was super happy to see the SU ONE WILD RIDE motorcycle stamp this catalog-
thanks to Dawn Griffith creating one for her Million Dollar Milestone!

It is a really cool one, too…with neat images and sentiments:

My stampers made this card at our New Catalog Kick Off Party last weekend. I had them cover a scrap piece of cardstock with foil adhered with a glue stick. Then they ran it through the Big Shot using the NEW Sparkle embossing folder. Make sure to use a glue stick because in my experience, using a tape runner or liquid glue made visible marks that showed through the foil. I also used Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil…it is a Wow moment when you see how cool it looks:)

I decided to share this card with the gang over at Stamp Ink Paper for their One Year Anniversary Challenge #52!

SU In the Meadow with Guy Greetings

May 10, 2016

I love creating masculine cards! When I saw the SU In the Meadow stamp set- I knew I had to have it! I am sure you all peruse Pinterest as I do when I get a new stamp. I came across this card and liked how Lisa used circles to highlight the images and used the Work of Art stamp set to “color” the images of the trees and deer.

I modified my card by creating a mountainous background, adding an Early Espresso border on the deer image, embellishing it with Burlap and a candy dot, and using the SU Guy Greetings on the bottom of the card.  My stamping classes chose between the Happy Father’s Day greeting or the Happy Birthday Greeting. We even conserved paper by cutting our circles (2″ and 2 1/2″)  out of the Very Vanilla border on the front that is covered by the Crumb Cake card stock the mountains and greeting are stamped on:) Thankfully, both stamp sets are sticking around!

I used Soft Suede ink for the mountains, trees, deer, and greeting on the card. I stamped off once and then stamped the colors  Tip Top Taupe and Wild Wasabi on the stamped images on the circles. The second stamp on the images was stamped again with that same “stamped off” ink so it was essentially stamped off twice.
