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.

This month I’ve been sharing cards for each letter of the alphabet in my ABC Card Series. (Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss out on cards for every occasion from A to Z!) Today I have a quick & easy card for a friend using the Free As A Bird stamp set.

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

I couldn’t decide between birds or butterflies for our “Anything with Wings” theme.  This simple card design would work with either. I knew I wanted to use this sentiment from Free As A Bird so this one stamp set did it all!

Here’s all the details if you would like to make this card:

  • Card Base: Seaside Spray Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
  • DSP Layer:  2″ x 4 1/4″.  Adhere to the center of the card base.
  • Cardstock Layer: Daffodil Delight 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.
  • Stamped Layer: Whisper White Cardstock 2-1/2″ x 4″. Stamp the image and using Memento Black Ink.  Color with Stampin’ Blends: Daffolidl Delight Combo, Old Olive Combo, and Crumb Cake Combo. Stamp sentiment in Seaside Spray ink. Adhere to Daffoldil Delight Cardstock.
  • Wrap a piece of Seaside Spray Scalloped Ribbon around the stamped layer and adhere on back.  Tie a simple knot in front. Adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish the envelope with a 1/4″ strip of Seaside Spray cardstock and a 2 x 6 piece of DSP.  Trim around the flap with Paper Snips.

E is for Encouragement

Welcome to my ABC Card Series! Throughout this series I’ll be sharing a variety of cards for every occasion from A to Z! Today’s card is for times when we want to encourage a friend or family member.  Good Luck is the perfect sentiment to send someone for an upcoming surgery, exam, interview, new job, etc.  My friend, Margie, has been wanting a stamp set like this. I hope she likes this card!

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Good Luck card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My Stampin’ Up! order came last week and I received the Believe You Can stamp set as a Host Reward. (Ask me how you can earn this stamp set for your collection!)

Stampin' Up! Believe You Can Stamp Set - Ask me how you can earn this stamp set! - Jeanie Stark juststampin.com StampinUp

I love how you can change the sentiment in the banner for different occasions. (I am also in love with the quote from Teddy Roosevelt.) This is a versatile stamp set and one I knew I had to have!

I colored the stamped image with my Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies. These double stitched dies cut the image and the border piece.  Double whammy! I can use the leftover piece on another card!

Stampin Up Stitched Nested Labels Dies - to order visit www.juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used one die to cut the stamped image and a larger die to cut the Designer Series Paper.  I like the way it looks like another layer with the border from the card base  You can see how it’s stitched around the edges.

I thought the leaves on the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper would be a good background for the stamped image.  The designs in this paper pack are all soft shades of green. You can use this paper with many different color combinations.
