I bought the Stampin Up Wood you be Mine polymer stamp set #137134 specifically for the masculinity of the lumber jack. So since I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother in law’s Davids birthday tomorrow I made it work. I had the left over parts from what I wanted to do for some valentines so I decided to use it to make a birthday card by simply just not adding the valentine sentiments included in the set.
For the background I used the Stampin Up Hardwood #133305 background stamp and then layered it with a piece of DSP from the Stacked with Love DSP paper stack #137779 in the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I also added a piece of the rough and tough Burlap Ribbon #132140 and a hand stamped and cut out tree stump.
These are the 2 masculine Valentines that I made using this set. It is fun to look beyond the stampset to use it for other than intended and in my case it was just swapping out the sentiment.
I love everything about the Stacked with Love DSP pack #137779 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog so I used the heck out of it for my valentine cards this year. I paired the DSP with the all new Happy Heart textured folder #137364. I used the Groovy Love #134246 to stamp the heart and punched it out with the Sweetheart #133786 punch and finished with an arrow from the What’s Up punch. Super clean and simple valentine or since I did not have a sentiment on the outside I could use it for an anniversary, wedding or any other occasion to express my love.
