Happy Birthday to our brother Chris! When I got the Stampin Up Adventure Bound DSP paper stack (Now retired) I knew I what I was going to do with the rock paper. I love a play on words so here is a fun and masculine birthday card. The background DSP is also from the Adventure Bound paper stack and then I added a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon #132140. For the sentiment I cut the “You” from the Stampin Up Hello You #137363 thinlits and added a Gold metal button #133763 as a sweet accent for the “O”. For the rock I rummaged through my word stamps and found the word rock and inked and hand cut a little tag tucked under the burlap ribbon.
This card just makes me smile and it was easy to cut the you now that Stampin Up has introduced the Precision Base Plate #139684.Detailed dies are great, but sometimes it’s hard to make all of the fine cuts crisp and sharp. Problem solved! The Precision Base Plate adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich, making working with detailed dies a dream. Yay!
It’s fathers day so I could not resist making a 2nd post today to honor all the dads in our lives. This post is super adorable and is the packaging for Cammies June workshop featuring all masculine cards that you have seen over the past few days and the Stampin Up manly papers that were available in the Adventure Bound DSP paper stack. As with most of Cammie’s fantastic designs, she brayered the mountains and daubered the grassy land. She used the Stampin Up Wood You Be Mine (now retired) stamp set to stamp the lumberjack. She then colored him in and peeked him behind a wood beam made using the Hardwood Background Stamp #133032.
What a fun way to package a masculine workshop! I plan to repurpose the packaging and remove the panel to make into a masculine card.
Today’s post is another masculine card that shows that a simple piece of Stampin Up’s now retired Adventure Bound DSP paired with the sentiment from the Adventure Awaits stamp set (also not available) can make a powerful statement.
Today’s post makes me smile and reminds me of Tim the Tool man Taylor’s neighbor, Wilson, from one of my all time favorite sitcoms- Home Improvement. How is that for a Throwback Thursday? Cammie made todays card using mostly product from the now retired occasions catalog. Cammie made the fence using the Hardwood #133035 Background stamp to cut the planks. She added the cute sign holding critter from the now retired Cheerful Critter set. The grass was hand cut from a piece of the now retired Adventure Bound DSP paper stack.
This is such a fun card that can be adapted to any occasion just by swapping out the sentiment.

Today I am posting 2 cards in 1 post featuring the Stampin Up Adventure Bound DSP paper stack # 137780
that is currently available in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. The Adventure Bound DSP has 48 sheets of 4 each of 12 double-sided designs of 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper and are great for card fronts or backgrounds. There are no delicate flowers or soft colors with this DSP; instead the DSP is bold spirited graphics are and the right choice for making Father’s Day, graduation, or other masculine projects. . Both cards also feature the now retired A Happy Thing Sale-a-Bration stamp set.
Both cards have similar layouts and crop the bird in a circle. The card on the left uses the soon to be retired Starburst Framelits #132967 for the bird to perch on top of the woodgrain DSP while the card on the right the circle is cut into the birch tree and the bird is nesting inside. For the sentiment I used the soon to be retiring stamp set, Lots of Thanks #129687.
