It’s Masculine Monday – Lovely as a Tree Birthday Card — Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!
Welcome to another It’s Masculine Monday birthday card using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set from Stampin’ Up! 🙂

I hope you are enjoying my “It’s Masculine Monday” series of cards. Masculine cards seem to cause difficulties for many stampers and trust me I had a difficult time with them also! But, as I make more and more of them they are getting easier for me and I am happy to pass my ideas on to you.

Welcome to today’s Christmas card and video. I am also sharing an amazing sign-up promotion that starts on November 24, 2014 🙂

I wanted to do a very simple card that could be mass produced for your Christmas cards. This certainly goes together very quickly and would be perfect for those last minute cards. Sometimes it is hard to apply glue to the very tiny areas of a word framelit and the Transfer Adhesive Sheets from Stampin’ Up! really work well. . .you should give them a try!

Gentle Peace Christmas Card and Video — Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!
Welcome to today’s Christmas card made with the Gentle Peace stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and a How-to Video 🙂

I have had so many requests for another YouTube video showing a different card made with the Packing Tape Technique. This technique has proven to be the biggest draw to my YouTube channel and I am happy to make a new design for you! I am often asked what type of tape I use. I use the 3″ Duck Brand HD Clear High Performance Packaging Tape you could also use the ULine Brand. Both types of tape can be purchased on Amazon

I really love the Gentle Peace stamp set and doesn’t it look fabulous through the glittery window. It is so important to me to make my Christmas cards with a Christ centered image and this stamp set and its greeting are just perfect. I hope you enjoy the card!

It’s Masculine Monday – By the Tide Birthday Card and Video — Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!
Welcome to another “It’s Masculine Monday” Birthday Card and Video using the By the Tide stamp set 🙂

I remember when I decided to start my “It’s Masculine Monday” blog posts what a difficult time I had coming up with masculine themed cards. But now it seem that they go together much easier than my other posts.  I know there is a need for masculine cards and I am determined to provide you with a variety of styles and stamp sets. I hope you are enjoying the series as much as I am!

For this card, I decided to watercolor the fish and the shells. By doing so, it added some additional dimension to the card. I understand that the watercolor process can be very intimidating, but trust me it really is very simple and easy. With just a few supplies, you too can become a watercolor expert! The By the Tide stamp set is one of many in the Stampin’ Up! catalog that are perfect for the man in your life and for the watercolor technique. I do so hope you will give it a try!!  By the way, don’t you love the bubbles?

Bright & Beautful Christmas Card — Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!
Welcome to today’s Christmas card using the Bright & Beautiful stamp set 🙂

I chose to use the same Stampin’ Up! set today as I did in Wednesday’s blog post. Hopefully, seeing a couple of different cards made with the same set will help spur your creativity. I am always looking on the web for card ideas and having multiple choices really helps me design a card for you. Just like Wednesday’s card I heat embossed this one. It seems like I do most of my embossing around Christmas. . .I just LOVE the look of gold embossing, don’t you?

Why don’t you give this Bright & Beautiful stamp set a try. It is such a great set to add to your collection. Did you notice the All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishment? I really wanted a gold snowflake. . .so I colored it with a gold Sharpie marker. Didn’t it turn out great?
