HAVING A BLOODY GOOD TIME!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I never make cards for it! It is just not a card type of holiday, on rare occasions some treat bags may happen but really even though I love all the extra scary, spooky stuff cards just don’t happen.

This year I am bringing back our Halloween neighborhood party (it’s been at least a decade- which is scary enough). That made an excellent excuse to create a card… my only problem was, I didn’t have any halloween stamps!

Improvision to the rescue… here’s how I made the card.

  • Basic Black base 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • Basic White or Very Vanilla layer (Very Vanilla looked better, so I mailed all those out-the photo is Basic White) 4 x 5 1/4
  • Apply Crumb Cake ink with a Blending Brush to make the image look like older paper
  • Print the details on the cardstock using your computer/printer, as a demonstrator we get lists of the hex codes to match Stampin’ Up! colors, in this case the print is Early Espresso and Real Red.
  • Stamp tree limbs in Basic Black ink- these are all retired stamps
  • Stamp blood splatter in Real Read- This was the newly retired sale-a-bration stamp Textures & Frames

This card is also tagged in the fall and winter categories because the theme would be easy to convert and I know we are all thinking about how to manage family gatherings to see our loved ones in a safe way. Just use paper and ink in a more fall browns/oranges/red or winter whites/light & dark blues. Change out the blood splatter for leaves or snowflakes unless you want to really confuse your guests!

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Everything Masculine

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

When I think of the men in my life I think of Simple Stamping. Neither my father or husband appreciate glitter (can’t imagine why??!!) or even bling. But what any guy will appreciate is being told how much they are appreciated.

This little dancing goat just makes me happy and I am sure it would bring a smile to anyone’s face. The card itself is super simple to make with the Stamp-a-ratus because you only set it up once. Cut a piece of Basic White THICK cardstock since there will be no layers and lay on the Stamp-a-ratus. Line up your image on the cardstock and lay the stamping plate on the stamps to pick them up.

I used the edge of my Old Olive ink pad for the grass and then the Tuxedo Black Momento Ink for the image. TECHNIQUE: to get the shaded sky behind the goat use the masking technique. Stamp the goat image on a post-it note then fussy cut the image. Lay the post-it note over the stamped image on the card. Use the new Blender Brushes and Balmy Blue ink starting at the center of the image and working outward to create the ombre effect in color.

To color the Goat I used the light Stampin’ Blends markers in Flirty Flamingo, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and the color lifter. Add a bit extra Smokey Slate to the outside to get a shadow line.

The sentiment is from a retired set but any Father’s Day wishing one will do!

Birthday, Handmade Cards, Masculine Cards

Happy Birthday You Old Goat!

Masculine cards galore were happening today at my house, this special one went to my neighbor who turned 65 today! You know that 65 is the new 50 right?

Knowing guys do NOT like glitter (generally speaking) this is a simple stamping card on Basic White THICK. My stamp-a-ratus makes it a snap to set up straight images from the Way to Goat set and make multiple cards for future use.

The Goat is colored with Stampin’ Blends of course because I no longer color with anything else! Make sure you are using a pigment ink stamp such as Tuxedo Black Momento so the image does not bleed when you color it.

I really love the minimalist look that is happening on this card but if you want to check out a more stepped up version featuring the same set up but more back ground color stay tuned for my card on June 1st for the We BEE Stampin’ Blog Hop.

You Make the World a Better Place

I love going back to my retired stamps and paper for cards for my immediate family. It gives me a chance to make a really personal card just for them at just this moment. This card uses the Beautiful World stamp and coordinating speciality paper.

As I said before guys don’t generally like glitter, and the men in my family are NO exception. Foil is a different story entirely! No other embellishments needed and don’t forget to take your die cuts from the foil accent layer to get the most use out of these speciality papers.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Celebrating the New Catalog

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Here it is the first card from the NEW Annual Catalog. I knew I had to have the Simply Elegant Suite (item 155764-link to follow) the moment I saw it. While looking at the products it seemed that it was screaming to me that a masculine card was hiding behind all the lace and flowers. Then when taking a look (ok, like the 40th) at the sentiments it hit me exactly what this simple stamping card would need to look like and who it would go to. In fact I made two! Above is my masculine version. To make the tag use the bottom portion of the punch with the technique featured on page 69 of the catalog.

This is my more feminine version using the top portion of the punch.

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch.

Time is running out to get last year’s catalog items and the Butterfly Bouquet… don’t let them fly away for good!
