Have you ever wanted to make a whole bunch of the same card? I have tips for mass producing hand-stamped cards today. The star of the show is the Stamparatus stamping platform.
Many of you know that my daughter was married this weekend. This was kind of a DIY wedding that definitely took a village to put up and take down. I have so many family members that did an amazing job helping us and I wanted to send out some thank you notes to let them know how much I appreciate them. Since I wanted them to reflect the Smoky Mountains where the wedding was held, I turned to the Mountain Air stamp set from Stampin' Up!®
If you want to see exactly how I made these cards, be sure to watch the replay of my live demonstration.
I love the Let's Set Sail stamp set and coordinating Sailboat Builder punch! It is great for making masculine cards or cards for anyone. For the April card class and game night, I paired it with the Waves Designer Series Paper. Be sure to grab this fabulous patterned paper before it's gone! It's perfect for so many water themed cards and it will be discontinued in May.
This stamp set also works great for baby cards. You can see an example of a sweet baby card here.
If you missed this month's Card Class & Game Night, you can watch the replay and purchase the written tutorial. Then, make sure to register for the May Card Class & Game Night happening on May 24 at 8pm Eastern in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook group and on YouTube. We'll be using the Your Biggest Fan stamp set to make some more cards for guys including a father's day card.
Do you need to make some masculine cards that aren't nature, tools, or cars? The For the Record stamp set from Stampin' Up! is great for creating handmade cards for guys who aren't into that other "guy stuff." It's especially great if you have a music lover to create for.
These card ideas are perfect for anyone - men or women! You could easily mask out the heart in the center of the card if you wanted. These three card layouts use the same color combination of Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Pool Party. I love the tone-on-tone effect!
I shared how to make one of these cards during my regular Thursday Night Live event this week. If you missed it, be sure to watch the replay for all of the little tips that I shared.
I've canceled next week's Thursday Night Live event, but I hope you'll join me in 2 weeks on April 28, when I'll be sharing how to make some more awesome handmade cards.
This week's Mystery Stamping was based on a simple card sketch. I love card sketches for quick card making! These samples use the Garden Greenhouse, Ocean of Inspiration, Cactus Cuties, and Happiness Abounds stamp sets from Stampin' Up!® You'll find the cutting dimensions and supply lists below.
I hope you'll join me next Tuesday night at 8pm Eastern for my next Mystery Stamping event either on YouTube or in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook group. I'll post the first clue on Monday evening with the cutting dimensions to create a card. You dig in your stash and prepare your supplies. Then, during the live card making event, I'll give you step-by-step instructions to create a handmade card.
