Check You Out Bookmark

Hello Friends,

Some of you may have heard that my husband lost his job last week.  Now that we have digested that, it's time for some encouragement.  So naturally, I turned to my Craft Room.  Today's handcrafted bookmark is for Joe.  It features the new Check You Out photopolymer stamp set by Stampin' Up!.

Love the little owl with his glasses, the worm with his bow tie and even the old-fashion library card!  It's a whole lot of cuteness. 

To make my bookmark masculine, I used the Come Sail Away Designer Paper and manly colors.  I used the colors listed on the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper Pack as a starting point, then added a few colors of my own.  My Check You Out Bookmark colors are Tuxedo Black, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Terra Cotta Tile, Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.  And then I threw in a snippet of Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam binding for one last pop of color.

I did some fussy cutting to make the pocketed library card, but the owl on the stack of books was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  To make the top of my bookmark.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch.  What a handy tool for any craft room.

 

The video from the Stampin' Up! office demonstrates how to use the Detailed Trio Punch and why it's so cool starting at about 29 seconds into the video.

Speaking of videos, I did some rearranging on my Stamping Country YouTube Channel this past weekend to make it easier for you to find relevant video tutorials.  Check it out.  And if you haven't already, be sure to Subscribe.

 

Have a fabulous day!

A Good Man

A Good Man Stampin' Up!

To all those good fathers and future good fathers out there, Happy Father's Day! 

Today's cards are simple one layer cards stamped with the A Good Man Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!.  If you love coloring, you'll love this stamp set.  The line art is beautiful and fun to color.  To make these card even simpler, I used pre-cut, pre-scored Note Cards and Envelopes.

For my Father' s Day Card, I stamped the image of father and son and colored them with some of my new Stampin' Blend colors.  Can you find the So Saffron, Gray Granite, and Seaside Spray?  My Father's Day greeting was done with the Well Said stamp set and the Well Written Dies.

I love this image of the man relaxing.  You may remember this image stamped for a Graduation Card in May.  Can't you just feel the cool water splashing up over your feet?

My final card of father and daughter was colored almost exclusively with new 2019-2012 In Color Stampin' Blends.  Can you find the Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, and Pretty Peacock?

A Good Man Stamp Set

A Good Man Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought that it would be fun to start our crafting week with the A Good Man stamp set by Stampin' Up! to make a card.  Today's card could be used for Father's Day and beyond.  I love this simple card because it pulls together simple stamping techniques to make a fabulous card.

A Good Man Card Making Tips

The first technique is coloring.  Oh, how I love my Stampin' Blends for coloring line art images.  I used Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends to color my fellows.

To add some texture to my background, I used embossing paste and my brick stencil to add some textured bricks to my card base.  The is an old technique that adds a lot of punch.  Simply apply the paste over the stencil, remove the stencil and allow to dry.  You can speed up the drying process with your heat tool.

The third technique is super duper simple.  I stamped my sentiment on 3 different card stocks and simply cut around the words that I wanted on each color.  I then arranged them for a pleasing colorful display.
