M is for Masculine

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! It seems many people struggle with masculine cards. The key is to keep it clean.

Stampin Up! Masculine Birthday card idea using Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper and Sailing Home Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is perfect for masculine cards! I like so many of the prints in this pack I had a hard time deciding which ones to use! I used 3 different prints and love how they coordinate so well.

This card is any easy formula to duplicate! You can change the DSP and use it for so many different cards! Here’s the measurements:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White scored at 4 1/4
  • DSP Layer: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Center Panel: 4 x 2 3/4 Balmy Blue
  • Panel Pieces: 1 5/8 x 2 1/2 Whisper White, 1 x 2 DSP, 1 3/8 x 2 DSP

I stamped the sailboat from the Sailing Home Stamp Set and cut it out with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. These dies work with the High Tide Stamp Set too which gives you a great bang for your buck! You can purchase the dies and stamp set as a bundle and save 10%!

The lighthouse would work in place of the sailboat or you could stamp and cut the anchor.  So many possibilities!!! I love being on the ocean so I had to have the whole Come Sail Away Suite! I added the anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets along with the coordinating Baker’s Twine.

The sentiment I used is from the Well Said Stamp Set.  This set is so versatile! It has sentiments for every occasion and has sentiments for the inside too! It also has coordinating word dies you can use for even more versatility and creative fun! I absolutely love these! (Be sure to click on the link at the bottom of this post to view in my online store.  You’ll want to add these to your cart if you don’t already own them!)

I just got back from spending 3 weeks in Massachusetts.  I grew up spending the summers on Cape Cod so I look forward to going “home” in July.  We had a wonderful time with family and friends and enjoyed sailing, seafood, salt air, lots of laughs and plenty of family games.  I colored my boat to look like this famous family’s sailboat we passed in the harbor.  Can you guess the family it belongs to? (Unfortunately it’s not mine!)

I used Night of Navy and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color the sailboat. I also stamped my envelope with the smaller sailboat in the set.

D is for Dad

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! I’m looking forward to sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s a good time to be making cards for Dads.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home and Well Said Father's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The NEW Come Sail Away Suite is perfect for making masculine themed cards! I combined the Sailing Home Stamp Set with the High Tide Stamp Set for this nautical lighthouse card.  Our family loves to visit lighthouses around the world so this is the perfect card for my daughter to give her dad for Father’s Day.  She loved the nautical knot in the stamp set but wanted to create her own with twine.  I had some retired Kraft Rope Trim in my stash which she though looked great. (I have to agree with her!)

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home and Well Said Father's Day card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The knot is easy to make with 2 pieces of trim.  Make 2 loops then thread one piece under the other loop and over the ends just like it looks in the stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home Stamp Set - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This stamp set has coordinating dies.  Even though I didn’t use them on today’s card I did purchase this set as a bundle and saved 10%! The products in this suite are some of my favorites in the new annual catalog.  You can Click HERE to check out everything in the Come Sail Away Suite.

Stampin Up Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 strip of Designer Series Paper to stamp my sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set (You will want to purchase this stamp set as a bundle and save 10% so you can combine many different word dies and sentiments!). I added a thin layer of Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered it to the Seaside Spray embossed cardstock. The images are stamped on Whisper White cardstock and cut with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Add the knot trim and secure on the back before adhering to the Navy cardstock base.  The compass was stamped off once in crumb cake ink on crumb cake cardstock and cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  It is layered with a 1 1/2″ punched circle in navy and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adding Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap ties it all together!

One of the fun things we get to do at Stampin’ Up! events is to play with new product!  We made five cards throughout the day using some new stamps, ribbons, and paper. Here’s a look at the cards.

Stampin' Up! Free As A Bird all occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to color and these birds from the Bird Ballad Suite look like little chickadees to me. Of course you can use the Stampin’ Blends and make any color bird you want! The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper makes a gorgeous backdrop and the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim adds a soft touch. I love the sentiments in the Free As A Bird Stamp Set!  In fact I love the entire suite and ordered it all!

If you follow my blog you know I love lighthouses and the beach! So you can imagine I was goo goo over this next card and suite.

Stampin' Up! Sailing Home masculine card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Come Sail Away Suite will appeal to the men in your life as well as anyone who enjoys the coast. There is so much variety in the Designer Series Papers in this pack! I love the Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine and the Sail Away Trinkets add the perfect finishing touch! I bought this set as a bundle with the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. Here’s a peek at the stamp set.

My next card is from the Perennial Essence Suite. The Designer Series Papers in this suite remind me of Van Gogh paintings.

Stampin' Up! Floral Essence best wishes card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This suite isn’t really what I would call my style though I do love the colors in the DSP.   I also like the Perennial Flower Punch and the colored Vellum Cardstock.

Is there one (or more) of these that’s going on your wishlist? I’ll have more sneak peeks for you all week!  Check back to see some of the awesome display boards. I will be offering product shares when the new annual catalog debuts in June. You can enjoy a “taste of the suites”, new ribbons, designer series papers, and/or the new In Colors.  Look for more information about ordering my product shares in May.

We did make one more card at OnStage and it was a Sneak Peek of the May Paper Pumpkin kit.  I’ll share that tomorrow.

Have a great evening!
