Masculine Cards Feed

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day November 14!

Hey there! Once again it is time for Sunday Swap Day! The theme of the last monthly swap was Masculine, so today I have a group of fun cards to share with you. Masculine cards are probably the hardest to make. One, there aren't as many masculine stamps to be had, and two, it just seems easier to make a girly card, ya know?

First, Jan Rodrian made her swap with the A Good Man stamp set, using a bit of bleach to lighten the guy in the chair before re-coloring with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Stampin_up_a_good_man_carolpaynestamps1

This card is a bit of a fun-fold!

Next, Jan Farring used the Biggest Wish stamp set with Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_biggest_wish_carolpaynestamps1

Janace Charbonneau also used Biggest Wish, as well as Beauty of Friendship Bundle with Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper, Stitched So Sweetly and Color & Contour Dies:

Stampin_up_biggest_wish_carolpaynestamps2

Barbara Dykhouse used Reflected in Nature with Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper and the Timber 3D embossing Folder.

Deb McCahan also used Reflected In Nature with In Good Taste Designer, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, and the Lovely Label Pick a Punch:

Stampin_up_reflected_in_nature_carolpaynestamps2-1

Another fun-fold!

Finally, Jenna Roby used the Intricate Leaves Dies, Timber 3D embossing folder with a sentiment from Peaceful Moments:

Stampin' Up! Hats Off for Father's Day!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Hats Off Bundle. I created this one with my husband in mind for Father's Day.

 Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps4

I used a color combo of Sahara Sand and Evening Evergreen, which are the perfect colors for my farmer hubby! I embossed the Evening Evergreen layer with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder for some background interest. I stamped "DAD" on a separate Sahara Sand scrap and cut it out with the coordinating Hat Builder Die.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I decided to use Sahara Sand for my sentiment layer, stamping "You're The Best" from the Hats Off set with Evening Evergreen ink. I added the mountain/evergreens motif at the bottom with Evening Evergreen ink.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps7

I used the mountains/evergreens again on the envelope flap and front bottom left corner.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps8

This was such a quick but satisfying card to make!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day April 25th!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day again, and today I have a fun collection of swaps to share!

First, Linda Pagel used a set that is returning to the new Annual Catalog, Pampered Pets, for her card. The Playful Pets Designer Paper, however, is retiring, so you need to order it before May 3rd!

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Janace  Charbonneau also used the Pampered Pets set. She also used the Pets Dies, which are returning in the new Annual Catalog, but will no longer be bundled with the stamp set for 10% savings.

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps1

Inside is a sentiment from Pampered Pets.

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps2

Jan Farring used the Whale Done Bundle of stamps and punch with the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. The stamps and punch are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog but the designer paper is not.

Stampin_up_whale_of_a_time_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Sharon Tong-Robinson also used the Whale Done Bundle and Whale of a Time Designer Paper for her card.

Stampin' Up! Soar Confidently!

Hey there! Today I have another masculine birthday card to share. I created this one with the new Soar Confidently stamp set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It's a stand-alone set, which means there are no dies or punches to accompany it but I love vintage images, so I had to have it to play with!

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps1

After I stamped the bi-plane with black ink I then used a Blending Brush to softly swirl Pool Party ink for the sky.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps2
I was able to leave the area of the greeting ink-free. I added a couple of Gilded Gems  because while sparkly, they also look a bit industrial, or rivet-like.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps3
I embossed the Pool Party layers with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to continue the look of clouds.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps4
Inside I used sentiments from Handsomely Suited, another mini catalog stamp set.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps5

Speaking of the Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration brochure, if you usually receive these mailings from me but you haven't received your copies yet, please let me know ASAP so I can notify Stampin' Up! to re-mail. Hopefully the January P.O. will be faster!

Stampin' Up! Ride the Range!

Hey there! Today's card was created for my grandson, Lando, who turned 6 this month. We went to his party yesterday, so now I can post his card! I used Ride the Range from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog and a double z-fold.

Lando was pretty happy to receive his card (and the present it was attached to!) lol!

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps1

All of the images used on this card are from the Ride the Range stamp set, including the adorable horseshoe I stamped in the background. I hand-cut the top and sides of the "LIFE IS A JOURNEY. . ." greeting, as well as the Early Espresso mat layer behind it.

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps2

I used the dies in the Open Range set to cut the cowboy, the cows, the windmill, and the fence I glued to the z-fold arm. I used the barbed wire image behind the windmill and the fence.

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps3

The finishing sentiment and hay bales are all from the set!

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps4
Dimensions for z-fold card:

Early Espresso base: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"

Early Espresso z-fold arm: 1" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"

Soft Suede section layers: 2 1/2" x 4" - need two

Soft Suede inside layer: 4" x 5 1/4"

Very Vanilla inside layer: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Very Vanilla for cowboy, cows, and greeting label: scraps

Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited for Troy Sneak Peek!

Hey there! I decided to use the Well Suited Suite of products from the Spring 2021 Catalog for my son Troy's birthday card too. The Handsomely Suited stamp set actually has four different tie images, so it was easy to make another card with a similar layout:

IMG_1220 (2)

I created my own background by repeatedly stamping the "you're the best" phrase from the Handsomely Suited stamp set.  This print from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper is so cherry on it's own, but it was made even better by stamping it with the polka-dot tie image and then cut with a Suit & Tie die!

IMG_1223

The inside sentiment is also from Handsomely Suited.

Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited Sneak Peek!

Hey there! I have two sons with November birthdays and this year we celebrated them at our family's Thanksgiving. I had just received the Well Suited Bundle from the upcoming Spring 2021 Catalog, so I pulled it out and played! This suite, while geared for creating masculine cards,  has a lot of possibilities that are not just for men!

Today, however, I'm sharing Logan's card created with the Handsomely Suited stamp set, Suite & Tie Dies (Bundle), and Well Suited Designer Series Paper:

IMG_1215 (2)

I stamped the bow ties directly on prints from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and then cut them out with the corresponding Suite & Tie Die.

IMG_1217

When stamped with Tuxedo Black in on the Whisper White inside layer, I definitely see a pink "hair bow" in this stamps future! The sentiment is included in the Handsomely Suited stamp set.

Only Stampin' Up! Demonstrators can pre-order this suite right now, but customers can starting January 5, 2021.

Stampin' Up! The Man, The Myth, The Legend!

The man the myth the legend

Hey there! It's time for the June edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop, THE MAN. THE MYTH. THE LEGEND.

My card  today was created with  my husband in mind, but was also inspired by a comment one of my Yes Mam! Stampers made about my Tasteful Touches Emboss Resist card I posted HERE. She said it looked like the Milky Way, which inspired me to create a "Milky Way" card for my husband who loves astronomy:

Stampin_up_hippo_happines_carolpaynestamps1

I used two sparkle images from two different stamp sets, Hippo Happiness and Pattern Play, to silver emboss the stars, then sponged white craft ink in a diagonal swath to create the "Milky Way"!

Stampin_up_hippo_happiness_carolpaynestamps4

I used a sentiment from Sailing Home on the front:

Stampin_up_hippo_happiness_carolpaynestamps5

And a sentiment from Many Mates inside.

Papercrafting Blog Hop Thinking of You Guys!

80233386_2500721953548607_3735354368958922752_o

Hey there! I've joined another blog hop! I'll be hopping with the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop on the 20th of every month! Our theme for May is "Thinking of You Guys", and I'm excited to see everyone's projects!

I created my project with New Annual Products that demonstrators are allowed to pre-order, the Tasteful Touches Bundle, which is part of the In Good Taste Suite. I also used one of my favorite techniques, Triple Time!

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_triple_time_carolpaynestamps1

I used a masculine/neutral color combo of Night of Navy, Gray Granite, and Whisper White with some sponging using a sponge dauber. I also used the twine from the Flowers For All Seasons Ribbon combo pack and the Misty Moonlight dots from the 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots.

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_triple_time_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a sentiment from another new catalog sneak peek, Lovely You.
