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.
If you'd like to see what Mystery Stamping is all about, you can watch the replay of this week's event.
I got a big old brown box of new stamps, inks, papers, and accessories from the new Stampin' Up!® 2022-2023 Annual Catalog this week. It is my favorite time of year! I love getting new goodies to play with and this box didn't disappoint.
I dove in and started playing with everything right away. During my YouTube live, I shared some of the cards I made this week. I've got one of them below, but I'm saving the rest to share in more detail in upcoming blog posts.
If you missed the live event, be sure to check out the video. I shared a color comparison of the new 2022-2024 In Colors to other current and retired Stampin' Up! colors. You definitely won't want to miss it if you're curious about how these new colors stack up.
Be sure to read all the way through this post for information on how you can get your hands on a sample of all the new patterned papers.
If you know me, I love card sketches for making quick and easy cards, and this one is a great one! These cards are so easy to make with just stamps, ink, paper, and a little ribbon.
Whether you want to make a baby card, a birthday card, or a just because card, it will work this sketch. For these samples, I've used the Let's Set Sail, Catch You Later, and Artfully Layered stamp sets.
You'll find the card sketch, all the cutting dimensions, and the supply list for these sample cards below. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
