Stampin’ Up Masculine card

Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle

May 1, 2020

I am loving the Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle!
The Balmy Blue Nested Label really pops off the Neutrals Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.

The Birch Background Stamp made for a quick and easy backdrop for the die cut collage on the nested label. I just love the oars with the boat…and I had to add in that jumping frog!

I did trim my front Granny Apple Green grass a little to layer nicely:)

So excited By the Dock will be returning in the NEW Annual Catalog
but it will not be bundled at a 10% discount like it is now.

Stampin’ Up! Pedal to the Metal with Perennial Birthday

April 20, 2020

Granny Apple Green reminds me of my nephew’s Kawasaki dirt bike so I used this color scheme on a card using the Stampin’ Up! Pedal to the Metal stamp set.

Every time I cut a Stitched Rectangle, I literally can’t help but make a frame by layering another one around it or cutting out the middle of it if I am going to cover it up…and then…I end up with this pile of random Stitched Rectangle frames or whole Stitched Rectangles cut out of the middle of another one I used already on a card. Well, I ended up using two pieces from my stockpile on this card! The diagonal striped Stitched Rectangle came from my guitar card on Friday.

I really like the Stampin’ Up! Pedal to the Metal stamp set-
a dirt bike, a truck, and a four-wheeler are a good mix for guys and girls, too!

The big bold sentiment comes from the flowery Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday stamp set- another one of my favorites.

The diagonal striped DSP is from a retired Neutrals Paper Stack (12 x 12) that had diagonal stripes/little flowers and polka dots/script in the stack. Any black and white pattern would work to give a backdrop for the dirt bike. If you make one, send me a pic!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I made this card using the Retiform Collage Technique. It reminds me of a cool project I did in art class when I was in school.

I liked just free form cutting around the sentiment on this one. What do you think?

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle Sneak Peek

May 17, 2019

I am in love again…this time…with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Suite!
A Bridge Fold Card is a perfect way to showcase the pieces in the stamp set and the dies:)
I used the NEW  In Color Seaside Spray with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper-
it matched wonderfully with the sailboat pattern piece I used.

In the card below, I used Balmy Blue which is listed on the color palette of the DSP.
You can see how it is a brighter blue than Seaside Spray which has a hint of gray with it.

You can get a sample of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper if you get my
2019-20 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog Paper Shares !

See post HERE.

Here is the back of the Bridge Fold card where you write your message:

The measurements for this  Bridge Fold are:
