Beautiful Autumn Meets Merry Moose Card

Beautiful Autumn Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Turning 13 is a pretty big deal!  Which is why I needed to make a pretty spectacular card for my oldest grandson who will be turning 13 soon.  My how time flys.  I remember when he was born like it was yesterday.  The Beautiful Autumn Bundle was just what I needed to form a gorgeous autumn wreath around the number "13".  I love that I can personalize my handmade cards in a flash with the Playful Alphabet dies!

Beautiful Autumn Meets Merry Moose Card Details

My Crumb Cake Card base was cut 11" x 4-1/4" and scored at 5-1/2".

The Real Red Card Stock was cut 3-3/4" x 5-1/2".  Yes, that's Real Red Cardstock stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp and Tuxedo Black Momento Ink to make the Buffalo Check!  Hint: I really like using my Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool when I stamp background stamps.  Because I can repeat my stamping as many times as I like without the stamp moving, I get a solid evenly stamped image.  See more ideas and a tutorial for stamping the Buffalo Check stamp here.

To make the wreath, I simply used my Beautiful Autumn stamps (Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake Card Stock) to stamp my leaves and acorns, then I punched them with my Autumn Punch Pack.

My stamped sentiments were stamped with the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamps.

Now for the important part of my card, I added the number 13 for Hunter's 13th Birthday Card by using the negative created with my Playful Alphabet Dies.  Tada!  Love these dies for personalizing my handmade cards!

Moose Punch Stampin' Up!

Take a closer look at the moose.  Did you notice the brushed look?  That's the new Brushed Metallic Cardstock.  Gorgeous!  The bow at the bottom of the wreath was fashioned with Braided Linen Trim.  It's so easy to separate for a frayed look.

Game On Birthday Card

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.  This birthday card is for my grandson, Aiden, who has a birthday coming up in July.

Game On Card Tips

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.

Just to prove that Elegant Faceted Gems aren't exclusively for the ladies, I dotted 3 across Aiden's Birthday Card.

A Grand Kid Stampin' Up!

With 15 grandkids, the A Grand Kid stamp set is a must for card making.  I love all the fun and witty sentiments included in this set!

Father Day Card with A Good Man

Hand Made Father's Day Card

Hello Friends,

Sunday is Father's  Day.  Have you made your cards?   For today's card I paired the A Good Man stamp set with the Best Plaid Builder Dies for a handsome Father's Day Card.                                                                                                                                                                       A Good Man Stampin' Up!

I should mention that the "Happy Father's Day" was stamped with the Best Year stamp set. Both the Best Plaid Builder Dies and the Best Year stamp set are included in the Best Year Bundle.  I cutout my Father's Day sentiment with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I thoroughly enjoyed trying two of my new Stampin' Blends Marker sets while coloring my Dad and Son image.  Dad's jeans were colored with the Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends and his shirt was colored with the Just Jade Stampin' Blends.

A Good Man Stampin' Up!

Inside I stamped two sentiments and a heart from the A Good Man stamp set.  To build my plaid card front, I simply cut my Misty Moonlight and Just Jade plaid overlays with Best Plaid Builder Dies.
