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.

Personalized Double Z Fold Baby Card

Over the Moon Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Our newest grandson was born late last week, so naturally, I set to making a handmade Baby Card.  It's a Double Z Fold Card featuring retiring, carryover, and new stamps and dies.  I love that I could personalize Baby Hudson's Card using my Large Letter Framelit Dies. These dies are fabulous for oh so many things.   I will be sad to see these dies go.  They are only available about a week more or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Would you like to meet Baby Hudson and learn How to Make Double Z Fold Cards?

How to Make a Double Z Fold Card

Cut Card Base 4-1/4" x 11".  Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

Cut a second strip of card stock measuring 2" x 11" to form the second "Z".  Score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".

Hint:  The second Z will go the opposite direction of the card base as shown in the picture above.

The Double Z Fold Card is 3 dimensional, but it will fold to tuck neatly in an A-2 or medium envelope.

You'll be happy to know that the This Little Piggy stamp set is carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.  And you will be doubly happy to know that there is a super cute new farm animal stamp set with cows that will coordinate with the This Little Piggy stamp set.  The Over the Moon stamp set and the This Little Piggy stamp set play well together.

Large Letter Dies aren't just for card making, they work equally well for Scrapbooking and Memory Keeping.  Just look at how they work for scrapbook Titles!

Eclipse Card Technique

One of my favorite techniques that works oh so well with the Large Letter Dies is the Eclipse Technique.  Click Here to learn How to Do the Eclipse Technique.

Large Letter Dies Going, Going, Gone.  If you would like to add the Large Letter Dies to your Craft Room Stash, order soon.  They will only be around through June 3 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Farewell Lovely As A Tree

Lovely As A Tree Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, we're saying good-bye and farewell to the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  Lovely As A Tree was a very popular stamp set when I first became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in 2005.  I still remember how excited I was for that Brown Truck to roll up in front of my house with my first shipment as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  My Lovely As A Tree stamp set was in that box.


Lovely As A Tree Stampin' Up!

Actually, Lovely As A Tree has been with Stampin' Up! longer than I have.  As you can see by the copyright on the stamp label, it has been around since 2001.  It's been a favorite because of its classic beauty and because of its versatility.  I've used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set over the years to teach many different Stamping Techniques.  Here are 3 of those techniques from the past below.


Pointillism Coloring Technique

 The Pointillism Coloring Technique is a perfect choice for coloring autumn leaves on this majestic tree.  To see just how easy and fun the Pointillism Coloring Technique in action in the video tutorial below.

Lovely As a Tree Stampin' Up!

Masking is a tried and true Stamping Technique that's been around for a long time.  
 

  Let me show you a little twist on this technique that I call 2-Step Masking.

Lovely As a Tree Stampin' Up!

Create a beautiful sunset with Baby Wipes.  That's right with baby wipes, ink refills and glossy white card stock you can create a sunset or sunrise.  


Baby Wipe Technique:

  1. Start with Glossy White Card Stock.  It's as smooth as a baby's bottom.
  2. Stamp your focal point using Stazon ink.  Stazon ink is made for stamping on non-porous surfaces and glossy white card stock is not porous.
  3. Next, apply drops of ink going up one side of a baby wipe that has been folded to approximately the same height as your card stock.  
  4. Rub the inked baby wipe across your Glossy white card stock to paint your sky.  It may take a couple of swipes.  Allow to dry thoroughly.

As I said at the beginning of this post-Lovely As A Tree is Retiring.  It will only be available until June 3, 2019, or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, whichever comes first.  Tomorrow, I'll show you the new generation or the stamp set that will be taking its place.  But, if you would like to have this oldie, but goodie stamp set in your stamp collection you will want to scoop it up before it is gone for good.  See below for ordering details.

 

Have a fabulous day,
