Game On Last Chance Stamp Set

Game On Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Wow, my grandkids love to play games.  It's not uncommon for them to head straight to the Game closet when they come for a visit at Nana and Papa's House.  So naturally when I saw the Game On stamp set from Stampin' Up!, I knew that it was a must-have stamp set and now the Game On stamp set is retiring.  It's only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or through May 3. 

Another reason to love the Game On stamp set  is that it's perfect for making fun masculine cards.  Today's Blog Post shares 2 Game On Masculine Card Ideas along with tips on how to make them.

Game On Card Tips #1

To achieve the black and white feel with just a pop of color, I inked my game pieces with Smoky Slate Ink and my "Roll with it" sentiment with Tuxedo Black Ink.  The clovers were inked with Just Jade ink.

To mimic the look of playing cards, I rounded my corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.

With my Water Painter, I splattered specks of Smoky Slate ink across my card front.

For today's Cubed Pop Up Card I used Real Red Card Stock (Connor's favorite color) an In Good Taste Designer Paper (wood grains).

To personalize his birthday card to say "12"  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies.

I colored the Chess pieces and the dots on the die using Soft Suede and Real Red Markers.

All the game pieces were stamped with the  retiring Game On Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!.

Baby Shark Twisted Easel Card

Hello Friends,

Today's Baby Shark Twisted Easel Card puts a whole new twist on the Twisted Easel Card Design.  On Friday's Blog Post I introduced the Twisted Easel card with an Under My Umbrella theme.  Today's I thought that I would take another bite at this fun Fancy Fold Card.

 

Shark Frenzy Stampin' Up!

Here's a close up of Mama and Papa Shark.  There are so, so many cute accessories to dress them up using both stamps and dies.  I've highlighted just a few for today's Baby Shark Twisted Easel Card.

One lovely thing about Twisted Easel Cards is that they mail flat.  They tuck neatly into an envelope.

 

How to Make a Twisted Easel Card

Cut a 11" x 4-1/4" Card Base.  Score at 5-1/2" as you usually would.  Then... , here's the twist, score diagonally from the top right corner to the bottom left corner along the seam as shown.

Cut a 4" piece of designer paper or card stock  and cut diagonally to make the triangular pieces to decorate your card front.

Here's the trick to making your easel stand up.  Pop up your inside piece using dimensionals.  This gives your easel something to catch or lean up against.
