Hammer Time

2017_08_13IMG_2234As  always  I needed a masculine birthday card so I went to my go to masculine stamp set.  The Stampin Up Nailed It stamp set and coordinating Build It Framelits are retired but I love them too much to stop using.  I paired the stamps with the Warmth and Cheer DSP and the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create a real manly card.  I added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set to complete the card.

Wood you be my friend

2017_08_12IMG_2337 This card was the easiest one I have done in a while but I just wanted to showcase the Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP #144177.  All the papers speak for themselves and need nothing more than a sentiment to complete a very masculine card.  The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree #137163 Stampin Up stamp set.

Wood Textures Manly card

2017_07_24IMG_2344I brought the look  of the outdoors inside with these natural, rustic patterns in the Wood Textures DSP papet stack from Stampin Up #144177. So many designs, so many colors, so many uses. Fronts and backs are similar grains and colors for ideal use in die cutting. I combined 2 patterns for todays card and embossed the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 stampset to create the sign.

Color Theory Smiles

2017_07_15IMG_2332 Everything about this card makes me smile.  I started out using the ever so popular and super fun Color Theory DSP #144193 for the background and the monochromatic “paint chip” panel.  I  cut the Adirondack chair using the Seasonal Layers #143751 Thinlits and added the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 Photopolymer stamp set.

This little light of mine

2017_07_14IMG_2220 Today I am featuring another great look with the High Tide #143006 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I paired the stamp set with the fabulous Wood Textured Designer Series Paper #144177.  To create the paneled look I simply created my beach scene then cut the strip in 3 equal sizes and lined it up on the mat.  Love the look!

Hello Sunset

2017_07_13IMG_0499 Today’s card is a bit dark but it is a real beauty with the gorgeous brayered sunrise over the horizon and the activity on the beach in the foreground.  Cammie did a great job using the High Tide #143006 stamp set from Stampin Up.

Color Theory Lighthouse

2017_07_09IMG_2218 Today’s post is one of the cards from my “Mostly Manly” workshop.  I absolutely love the Color Theory DSP #144193  that I used for the main layer of this card.  For the focal panel, I created the lighthouse scene with the Stampin Up High Tide stamp set #143006 and added a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Tiny WIishes #128748 stamp set and attached it to a piece of twine.
