Apron of Love Cards for Dad

Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

Hello Friend,

Even guys secretly love getting cards in the mail.  Don't let their sometimes macho response fool you.  I made today's cards with Dad in mind.  The Apron was fashioned with the Apron of Love Stamp set and the Apron Builder Framelit Dies.  Yes, the Apron of Love stamp set can look very girly, but it can also be quite masculine.  The important thing is that I am sending love in an envelope.

Colten's Card

Snail Mail really does have the power to lift a heart and bring a smile.  This is a handmade with love gift that I discovered in my mailbox was made by my grandson, Colten.  The note on the back melted my heart.  Here's what Colten had to say.


     This is for you.  Don't let anyone take it please.  Happy Birthday!

Thanks, Colten!  I love you too.

Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

I used a couple different designer papers-2018-2020 InColor Paper (Apron) and Wood Textures (background).  Hint:  I fussy cut around the logs to make it look like a log pile.  The grill utensils in the pocket were cut from Silver Foil Paper.  The soft blue background is a new color called Balmy Blue.  It's pairs nicely with Blueberry Bushel.

Send a card today.  Send some love in the mail.



Thanks for stopping by!

Have a fabulous day,

Picture Perfect Birthday Guy Card

Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Many of you know that there are lots of guys in our family, so I make lots of masculine cards.  This one is for my son, Jeremiah, who has a May birthday.  I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, the Balloon Bouquet Punch and the True Gentleman Designer Paper for today's masculine birthday card.  By stamping the flame above my sentiment the sentiment takes on the look of a candle.  The balloons were punch from my designer paper.  For a tassel look I tied medium Navy Baker's Twine around the neck of my balloons, then separated the strings. 

Multiple Color Ink on stamps

The Stamparatus and Markers work great together for crisp clear Rainbow stamping.  Using the Stamparatus allows me to stamp the image a couple of times catching and spots that I may have missed the first time.  Plus, each time you stamp you image gets a bit darker.  To apply the ink simply brush the markers across your stamp.  I took my cue for colors from my designer paper.  I used Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy.

The end result is a real Wow an it's so easy to do!  The Gentleman Designer Paper (retiring) is a slam dunk hit for making masculine cards.

True Gentleman Personalized Birthday Card

How to Make a Personalized Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

It's hard to believe that my baby boy just turned 28!  Of course, such a momentous occasion calls for a handmade card, because that's what I do!   Bryan is a Forester so I used the Seasonal Layers Dies along with the Large Numbers die to make a personalized Birthday Card just for him.


Bryan is my son with a ready smile.  I snapped this picture of him when we were in the midst of making Maple Syrup.  Happy Birthday, Bryan!

Personalized Birthday Card

I love this sentiment stamp from the Number of years stamp set.  It sums up how I feel about Bryan.  And the True Gentleman Designer Paper has such a masculine feel.  It's a sure fire win for cards for the guys.  If you find yourself having a hard time coming up with ideas for making masculine cards, try starting with a good masculine paper.
