By the Dock 2 For 1 Card

Hello Friends,

Why is it that Masculine Cards are so much harder to make?  It's a question that I am often asked.  Yesterday, I shared 2 masculine cards made with the retiring Game On stamp set and today I'll share 2 cards designed with the retiring By the Dock Bundle.  That's 4 masculine card ideas just for you!

Just a reminder that all retiring products are available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until May 3, 2021 whichever comes first.

To make this By the Dock card, I sponged 3 colors (Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Tranquil Tide) to create the water.  Then, I stamped a few Whisper White waves.  Using an assortment of Stampin' Blends, I colored the boat and the dock.  The cattails and the frog were cut with the Dockside Dies.

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!.

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!


Way to Goat Stampin' Up!

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