Sharp Dressed Man …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card from the Well Suited Suite and as I got ready to take the pictures to share with you, I kept thinking of the song “Sharp Dressed Man” by ZZ Top! We’ve checked out the ties and today we are going to “suit up” our card.

I picked out two patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper; one that reminded me of tweed and the other is paisley! That is how I started …

Your card base begins as any other; 8-1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″ … fold in half and your ready to dress your card. I took the “tweed” pattern paper and with the coordinating dies, cut out the suit. You get the suit and lapels.

The shirt consists of the White card base and the die cut collar … it is so easy to create. HOWEVER, before you adhere down the suit, you need tuck the tie under the collar and and suit. I just love that paisley tie!! You could add a pocket, buttons and more to dress up your card, the dies have them all.

My greeting comes from the Handsomely Suited stamp set that is include in the suite, and bundle. I cut it out with the Shaped Stitched dies … one of my favorite die sets because it has 3 different shapes, the circle, oval and square dies.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card, and I thank you for checking out my blog today.

Masculine Birthday Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and if you were cheering on one of the Championship games, I hope your team won!! Today I’m going to step up the simply stamped card that I shared with you yesterday.

I am using the same basic layout but instead of stamping the ties on the white cardstock, I brought in the designer paper ….

First, I used a simple yet masculine design from the Well Suited Designer Series paper as my background, and then using 3 other patterns of designer paper … I cut out my ties with the coordinating tie dies! It’s so much fun pick patterns and make your own ties! I felt like I could sew again … LOL!!!

I attached my handsome ties directly to my card front and then focused on my greeting. My color pallet of Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and Basic White is the same as yesterday ….

I stamped my “birthday” greeting which is included in the bundle in Merry Merlot and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch. Then you punch out another tag from the Merry Merlot cardstock …. cut it in half the long way and then attach to the top and bottom of your stamped image, this creates a pop of color behind your greeting and once popped up with dimensionals, really highlights your birthday wish to your favorite guy.

If you want to add this amazing bundle to your stamping collection, now is a great time because we are right in the middle of our Sale-a-bration period … With a $50 purchase you can choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. Here is one that I think would compliment the Handsomely Suited Bundle …

Thank you for joining me again today, how are you liking this suite so far? I’ve got another for you tomorrow!

Have yourself a great day!

Simply Sunday: Stamps * Ink * Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Sunday to you! I hope you got the chance to see all my cards created from the Ice Cream Corner suite. Today I’m going from yummy to masculine as I kick off a series of cards created from the Well Suited Suite which can be found on page 66 and 67 of the Mini Catalog.

The suite includes the Handsomely Suited Stamp set, Suite & Ties Dies, Well Suited Designer Paper and the Well Suited Twine ….

Today we are just using simply; stamps * ink * paper! Isn’t this how the whole “stamping” thing got started? My color pallet will be Night of Navy, Merry Merlot and Basic White … masculine. I started with my base in Night of Navy and my mat in Merry Merlot and my Basic White to stamp on, and I choose the ties!

The ties with the diamond shapes are stamped in Night of Navy and the one with the stripes was stamped in Merry Merlot … they are pretty easy to line up but you can always use your Stamparatus if you want it perfect. I started with the Merry Merlot tie in the center and then stamped the two in Night of Navy.

The greeting was stamped on a piece of scrap that I had lying around and fit it well, and then I added some Night of Navy to mat the greeting.

Such a nice masculine card that is easy to make! There is also a birthday greeting in the stamp set and a few others so you can send many masculine cards throughout the year.

Thank you for stopping by this Sunday, and I hope you have a wonderful day. Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see how I step up this card!
