A Cut Above Birthday Card

How happy does this man look realaxing in his hammock? I’d love to be hime right now, sadly it’s still a little too cold for sunbathing here in Yorkshire.

This image comes from the A Cut Above stamp set which is a great one for the men in your lives, the other image in the set with the lawnmower reminds me of both my husband and my dad.

The image was stamped on a die from the Hippo & Friends die set, its funny but I’ve had these almost a year and I think this is the first time I’ve used them but its a great set for frames and other little elements.

The background paper comes from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Paper pack and really adds to the bright relaxing card I was hoping to make.

Fingers crossed this will be me relaxing in my garden soon.

Simple Stamping with Prettiest Birthday

Today I’m sharing a very simple card that shows that the Prettiest Birthday stamp set can also be used to make male birthday cards despite all the pretty feminine images. I’ve used the tassel banner and stamped across the card in slight diagonal line sin Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay.

I’ve added a greeting using the sign type greeting from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set on Poppy Parade, which I then cut out with the smallest fat rectangle and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A quick simple card which can be suitable for anyone simply by changing up the colours.

Just For You Card

Here’s a simple card using three more products which are retiring the Layering Squares Dies, Be Mine Dies and the Meant to Be stamp set.

I’ve used the largest Scalloped Square die and coordinating plain square to create the focal point of my card. On the Blushing Bride cardstock stamp I’ve stamped the tiny hearts in Blushing bride to create a tone on tone background.

The heart was stamped in Real Red ink and cardstock and then die cut with the second largest scalloped heart.

I stamped the greeting in Versamark and then used White Embossing Powder to heat emboss with, not very well as I’ve left lots of little flecks all over.

The white embossing powder on its own has now sold out but its being reconfigured in the new catalogue to come in a bundle with the clear and black embossing powder.

Shades of Blue Classic Car Card

It’s been a long time since this set has seen some ink but I’ve pulled out Geared Up Garage and I like the end result of this card. I’ve used Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and Seaside Spray they all blend well together.

I’ve cut the car out with the matching die from the Garage Gears Dies, coloured it in Misty Moonlight for a focal point for the card.

To finish the card I’ve stamped the greeting on Night of Navy on a die cut from the So Sentimental die collection.

A simple card perfect for any car enthausiast!
