Simply Sunday: BEST. GUY. EVER.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the late post, computer troubles again … but my troubles actually worked out in the long run, because I stayed busy in the stampin’ studio creating more cards!

Today I have 3 cards to share with you!! All with the same layout, all with the same stamp set, and all with the same designer series paper pack! By the title of today’s blog: BEST. GUY. EVER. – you can tell that a “man card” was on my mind.

With Valentine’s Day only 8 days away … you’ve seen several cards already but not one specific for males. In the theme of my Simply Sunday’s, nothing creates a quick card like designer paper, and our “Serene Scenery” Designer Paper has awesome patterns for guys! I chose the antiqued wood look …

The Crumb Cake base matches perfectly with this paper! And yes, it is one 4 x 5-1/4 sheet … all the texture and depth is actually in the beautiful photography of that paper! Tomorrow I’ll share another card I created with this paper.

Next I chose the stamp set … the wonderful “Suite Sentiments”.  I love this greeting set, it has a little something for every occasion. Today you’ll see it used 3 times. I wanted the greeting to be the focal point of the card so I used the “Stitched Shapes Framelits”. Once cut, I mounted it with the Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it some height. With the help from the Confetti Hearts border punch, I punched out some hearts from the Pool Party paper and attached them to my greeting with glue dots. Nice & Simple.

This card is a simply sweet card to give to one of your friends. The designer paper pattern (Again, “Serene Scenery” Designer Paper) reminds me of a warm summer day, full of dandelions just waiting to make a wish upon. The greeting is from “Suite Sentiments” and again was die cut using the “Stitched Shapes Framelits”.

My color pallet for this card is Old Olive and Early Espresso. I added the Basic Pearls to draw your eye around the entire card and create balance. Besides, they are pretty and your friend will love them!

Can you see the theme here? The same layout, with the same stamp set:”Suite Sentiments”, all with the same designer series paper pack:”Serene Scenery” and die cut with the “Stitched Shapes Framelits”.

The final card I created uses the Cloudy Sky designer paper, it’s realism reminded me of the Ascension of Jesus so I used it to create an Easter card. Simply and pretty. I used the smallest flower from the “Blossom Punch” to make my flowers, and since I already had the pearls out from the previous card, I used them again in the center of my blooms.

I know some of you are already gettin’ in the mood for the Superbowl, but I appreciate taking a minute out of your day to check out my post.  My team is out so if I watch it’s only for the commercials or takin’ a peek at the 1/2 time show.  Best bet is you’ll find me in my stampin’ studio 🙂

May the rest of your day be wonderful and your tomorrow even better.
