Happy Birthday You Old Goat

Way to Goat Stampin' Up!

You can say things to a brother that you would never, never ever say to a Daughter-In-Law!


You Old Goat Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

Today, I am once again using the same two stamp sets that I used to make last Friday's Birthday Card.  The big difference is that today's Birthday Card is for my brother and trust me, I can say things to my brother that I would never ever say to my Daughter-In-Law!  I switched up the designer paper to make today's card more masculine, but the biggest difference is that today's birthday card says, "Happy Birthday You Old Goat"

Both birthday cards were personalized with the Playful Alphabet dies.  Melissa's Birthday Card was personalized with letters and Mark's Birthday Card was personalized with numbers.


Humorous Birthday Card

For lots of happy colors and patterns, I carried the Plaid Tiding paper through to the inside of my card.  Birthday Humor can be fun, even still, I  softened the humor just a bit on the inside of his card.  He really is a terrific brother.

This is a great way to use pretty scraps of paper plus it looks fabulous!

The stamp sets that I used to make both cards were the Way to Goat and the Itty Bitty Birthdays by Stampin' Up!.

Make in Minutes Merry Moose Card

Merry Moose Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Make It In Minutes Monday Handmade Card Tutorial!  You could literally make today's card in under 5 minutes and it has a very short supply list.  It's stamped with the Merry Moose stamps from Stampin' Up!.  The adorable moose is punched out with the Moose Punch.  This card could easily be stepped up for a fancier card, but in keeping with Make It in Minutes Monday, I intentionally kept the card super simple.


Merry Moose Stampin' Up!

Make a Merry Moose Card in 5 Minutes

Learn How to Make this card.  Start with a Thick Whisper White Card Base cut 11" x 4-1/4" and scored at 5-1/2".  That's a sheet of card stock cut in half lengthwise.  An even quicker solution would be to start with Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes which are pre-cut and scored.

Next, ink up you pine tree stamps and stamp a cluster of trees.  Hint:  Don't reink your stamp every time for a light and dark effect.  This is a technique called stamping off.

Merry Moose Stampin' Up!

Punch a moose from Early Espresso card stock using the Moose Punch.  Hint:  If you don't have Early Espresso Card Stock, you could stamp your moose using the same ink that you use to stamp his hoof prints eliminating the need for another card stock.

Stamp the moose prints using Gray Granite ink.

Stamp "Merry Christmoose" using Cherry Cobbler ink.  Hint:  If you would like to use this card for another occasion stamp an alternative sentiment or simply skip stamping the sentiment and write a personal message inside.

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 Stampin' Up!

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.
