Decisions, Decisions!

My friend Steve recently asked me to make a card for him to give to someone who would celebrating their 70th birthday.  Of course, I was delighted and took this request very seriously.  Decisions, Decisions… which stamp set to use?  Well, it is for a 70th birthday so of course the “Number of Years” stamp set was a given.

Making masculine cards is very easy, in theory.  Certain color combinations lend themselves to being masculine, especially if you add a neutral such as grey, black or brown, and avoid pinks and purples.  Simple geometric patterns (stripes, squares, circles, etc.) and avoid florals, lace and ribbons.  Easy so far, right?

This is the card I created:  Happy 70th birthday

Ok, so this follows all my masculine rules, but… I felt like it just needed something more since it is such a milestone birthday.  Decisions, Decisions.  I decided on balloons, simple, gender neutral and very festive.  My color combination is gray, blue and white.  I wanted to use these colors but also add something with a little more pop.  I thought about adding green, or orange, or red, but….decisions, decisions!

I ultimately added some silver glimmer paper.  It added some pop, but without adding another color to my simple, masculine color combination.

Happy 70th Birthday with Balloons

What do you think?  Do you like the addition of the balloons?  I like the plain card, but I like the stepped up version even more.  Now leave me a comment and tell me which one you like best.

I’m really pleased with the way  ‘happy’ layered over the 70 turned out.  Do you like that too?

Let me share how I created this card:

A card base of Whisper White, then a layer of Pacific Point cardstock.  A piece of Neutrals DSP in silver & white diagonal stripes.  2 layers of circles in Pacific Point and Whisper White again, and the numbers die cut in Pacific Point using the Large Numbers Framelits dies.  The little flag banner is part of the Large Numbers Framelits dies and the ‘th’ is part of the “Number of Years” stamp set .

The Happy is from the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  I used my Paper Snips to cut the Happy apart from Birthday.  I cut another “Happy” from Thick Whisper White cardstock  and then glued both of those together.  This raised up the word so when I layered it over the numbers it appears to be floating over it.

The balloons were punched out using the Balloon Bouquet punch using Pacific Point DSP and Silver Glimmer Paper.  A simple piece of Bakers Twine was used for the balloon strings.

Here is the card with the coordinating envelope.Happy 70th Birthday card with envelope

Let me tell what my friend Steve said when he got home and saw the card that I left for him.  “Nancy thank you for the card.  It is perfect 🙂  No doubt in my mind he will love it.  You have a gift Nancy, thank you for sharing it”

I am very flattered by his compliment!  I hope that you like this card as well.  Please leave me a comment; I’d love to hear what you have to say!

White Christmas

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas… famous song lyrics.  Go ahead, you can sing if you want to.  My project today puts a spunky twist on the song lyrics.  The stamp set “Half Full”, one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2017 Holiday Catalog, has a whimsical inside/outside sentiment that I used for this project.  Let’s take a look:

White Christmas Front using Half Full

And for the inside….. (drum roll please!)

White Christmas inside

I know you just chuckled!  I know I did when I first saw this stamp set!  And I just knew I had to have it.  I made this card with the ladies in my “Wine Down Wednesday” Stampin’ Class (of course we made wine-themed cards on Wine Down Wednesday!) and they just loved it. Half FullAnd you’ll notice that I used a strip of the Merry Music Designer Series Paper as a nod to the song lyrics… I’m dreaming of a white Christmas….  I know;  I’ve been humming this tune for several days now!

A little bit of coloring with the blender pen adds the perfect amount of color to this project.  Momento Ink is my ink of choice when filling in color with the Blender Pen.

I’ve used this stamp set in other classes; you can see those projects here and here.  This is such a versatile and fun stamp set; and if you are considering getting this stamp set, I hope you will.  It’s a lot of fun.  You can click here to go to my online store or click on any of the items below.

Swirly Snowflakes

The stamp set called “Snowflake Sentiments” and the coordinating Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies caught my eye the first trip thru the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and went straight to my ‘must have’ list.  The intricate snowflake cut out and the lacy border, along with the font style and basic greetings, were too much for me to pass up.  Add to that the fact that you can bundle & save, and I was hooked!

The Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week provided just the right excuse for me to take these out and play!  Thanks #TTTC021!  So here it is:

Swirly Snowflakes for the #TTTC021

This card is delicate and intricate; it look like you spent HOURS on this card, but the Big Shot and the dies do all the work for you!

Here’s how I made it:

The lace work behind the snowflakes was cropped from Dapper Denim card stock and the snowflakes were cropped from Whisper White  cardstock.  Both used the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.   I do recommend using the Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush to get a good clean cut and to remove all the parts & dots.

Dapper Denim ink was used to stamp the sentiment on Soft Sky cardstock and was cropped using the Layering Oval Framelits dies.  A piece of silver Mini Tinsel Trim was added, as well as Rhinestone Jewels on the center of each snowflake.  I just love how Soft Sky and Dapper Denim pair together and the silver adds just the right touch for a silvery, snowy color combination!

I popped up the entire snowflake panels on Stampin’ Dimensionals before adding it to my Soft Sky card base.   A  few pieces of washi tape keep the Tinsel Trim in place as well.   You can see that here:

Stampin’ Dimensionals do a few things; they raise the cardstock enough to allow for the thickness of the tinsel trim to ride underneath without adding bulk to the card, and they give an added dimension to the card by having that panel raised.

Here is the Tic Tac Toe Challenge for this week:

tttc#021

I chose the Diagonal Row from the bottom left to the top right, using die cut and oval. For the free I chose to add some bling.

I knew I wanted these intricate swirly snowflake dies for the die cut and the sentiments from the Snowflake Sentiments pair so nicely with the oval framelits so my card fell together so easily and perfectly for this row.  You can see my card again here:

Swirly Snowflakes for the #TTTC021

You can see all the projects posted to the TicTacToeChallenge021 here.

Thanks for stopping by My Stampin’ Space today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project and that you might be inspired to make some cards today.  If this post inspires you to make something with snowflakes, or the Soft Sky/Dapper Demin/Silver color combo, please let me, or better yet, send me a picture of your creation!  Leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!

Today we Celebrate!

Today we celebrate our Wedding Anniversary!  29 years ago today we said “I do” and I’ve been doing it ever since!  Loving my husband, that is.  Through good times and hard times, the one thing I can always count on is my husband.  He is my rock, my support, my voice of reason when I need advice, the one I laugh with, cry with and do life with.

I wanted to make a card that conveyed that, but yet keep it simple and masculine.  I think I nailed it because when he opened up the envelope, he exclaimed “I like this!”

So here it is:29th Anniversary

 

My basic layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #309.   Freshly Made Sketches #309A Crumb Cake  card base layered with a sheet of whitewashed oak from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper that was punched with the heart framelit from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit dies.  A piece of Real Red Cardstock was glued in behind that opening.   Another heart was punched using the Sweetheart punch and a different  sheet of woodgrain paper.  A piece of Crumb Cake was stamped in Early Espresso ink with the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

Easy, quick and masculine enough.  My husband has been a cabinet maker his whole life so I knew he would appreciate the woodgrain paper.  Now he is the Executive Director at the Keystone Mission which serves the area’s homeless and needy population.  The other night, the Keystone Mission (and many Rescue Missions across the country) held a Red Carpet Event for the movie “Same Kind of Different As Me”  which tells the true story of a millionaire art dealer and his friendship with a homeless man. Here is a picture of us as we walked the red carpet: On The Red Carpet for Same Kind Of Different as Me

Now you can see why he’s so easy to love!  He’s easy on the eyes! On a more serious  tone, I would highly recommend going to see that movie “Same Kind of Different As Me”, and bring some tissues.

Well, I hope you like my card, and the sketch that inspired it!  Go along to Freshly Made Sketches blog to see all the projects made with that sketch.

If you want to buy any of the supplies I used to make this card, please visit my online store where you can shop securely 24/7.  Don’t forget that the Woodgrain DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free  Designer Series Paper Sale going on now. 

Happy Stampin!

Going for the Gold with the GDP!

This week the Global Design Project#109 is hosting a Color Challenge.  Here it is:

Global Design Project #109

And here is my entry:Deck the Halls for the GDP

The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits dies make making Christmas cards a snap! (And you can bundle and save 10%!)  The perfectly coordinating images and intricately detailed dies make it look like I’ve spent hours on this card, but it was easy enough to mass produce a lot of these cards in a short time period.  The Merry Music DSP makes for a nice background and the gold doilies add the right amount of bling with over-doing it.  (The Merry Music DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale going on thru October 31st.)

Want to know a little secret?  I actually designed this card last week for my #WorldCardMakingDay class.  As I sat down to write this post, I saw the GDP announced their Color Challenge and since I hadn’t shared this project yet, and the colors just fit this color challenge exactly, well, if the shoe fits….   Sometimes things just fall into place perfectly.

I highly recommend this product suite!  If you can only get 1 bundle or suite from the Holiday catalog, it would be a tough choice between this Merry Little Christmas product suite and the Quilted Christmas product suite.  Both have an awesome stamp set and coordinating framelit dies that can be used for more than just Christmas, and both have a complimentary array of embellishments.  If you missed my earlier posts showing the Quilted Christmas product suite, please click here and here.

Take a few minutes to head over to the Global Design Project to see all the awesome designs.

Here is another look at my card, and the supply list you’ll need to recreate this card yourself.  Click Here to shop my online store for any supplies.  Deck the Halls for the GDP

Pals Blog Hop – Wicked Folds


Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For my project I chose to do a Double Z-Fold technique.

SweaterDeer Closed

And here it is open:

Sweater Deer Double Z Fold

Watch this video to see the Double Z Fold card in action:

My card is a monochromatic card in Cherry  Cobbler and Whisper White with a touch of silver for some ‘bling’. The buck in the Winter Sweater just makes me laugh every time I see him!  This image is from the Merry Patterns stamp set that is available for FREE during the Merry Patterns Host Promotion thru Oct. 31st.  CLICK HERE to learn more about the Merry Patterns Host Promotion CLICK HERE to download the Merry Patterns Promotion flyer.  Merry Patterns, argyle sweater on deer, tis the season, candles

I thought he would be perfect with a piece of card stock embossed with the Cable Knit  TIEF.  The tiny deer pattern on the DSP from the *Be Merry DSP just repeats the deer theme we have going on.  A tiny sliver of 1/8″ silver ribbon and the Rhinestone Jewels are the perfect accents.

*This Paper is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale going on now.

Of course, I couldn’t make a card like this without my Stampin’ Trimmer.  Of all the paper trimmers I’ve owned over the years, the Stampin’ Trimmer by Stampin’ Up ! is hands down the best!

A Double Z-Fold card is really easy to make.  Start with your 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of card stock scored & folded in half to make a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.  Then just take the front  flap of the card and fold it in half back onto itself.  You will then have a piece of cardstock, when laid flat, that is scored at 2-1/8″and  4-1/4″.  When scored and folded this will be a Z-fold.

The part of the card that makes the double Z is just another piece of card stock 8-1/2″ scored at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″.  The height of this piece should be less than 5-1/2″  but it can be any size.  For this card, the height is 4″.   Score and fold this piece to make another Z.  The trick comes in how you adhere the pieces.  The card base, from left to right, has the 2 small panels and 1 large panel.  The Z-fold piece is adhered to the card base with the 1 large panel on the left and the 2 small panels on the right.

To see another card I made with the Double Z- Fold, click here.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on November 8, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment.  We love to hear what you have to say!
