Hello friends. Today’s post is going to be a compilation of miscellaneous samples starting with a few cards suitable for the men in your life. March means birthdays for my brother and brother-in-law so I always have to scramble for guy cards. Here’s what I came up with:
Supplies – Paper Smooches die Mustaches; Memory Box die Pinpoint Rectangles; Paper Smooches stamp set Sentiment Sampler; Impression Obsession stamp set Sentiments 2; Memory Box die Classic Alphabet U/C and Numbers
Supplies – Paper Smooches die Mustaches; Memory Box die Pinpoint Rectangles; Paper Smooches stamp set Sentiment Sampler; design inspired by Jocelyn Olson
Supplies – Poppy die Pond Frogs; Memory Box die Stitched Rectangles; Impression Obsession die Plain Alphabet; Taylored Expressions stamp set And Many More; design inspired by Stephanie Serrano
Here's an easy card perfect for any man's birthday. I cut a strip of the numbers paper and then cut it in 2 pieces (the reverse side was a perfect match!) and rounded the ends. I added two brads, wrapped natural twine around the brads and tied a bow. Add a sentiment and a balloon and you're done!
Supplies – My Favorite Things die Brushstroke Birthday sentiments; Penny Black die Uplifting
Diamond Border – I love this card! The new diamond border die from Penny Black cuts the solid and the outline diamond borders. Choose a color scheme and cut 2 of each from both colors. Glue the outline borders on top of the solid borders. Cut a strip of cardstock 1” x 5½” and adhere the middle border to the middle of this strip. Then adhere one border above and one below, leaving a little space between the borders. Finish the card with a sentiment die cut from same colors and adhered slightly off set. I plan to make this same card in a variety of different color schemes and sentiments.
Supplies – Penny Black die Diamond Border; Paper Smooches die Quote Tag; design inspired by Elizabeth Allan
Welcome – The die does all the work for this card. I cut the die from white cardstock and mounted it to blue cardstock. Then I cut the same die from green and inlaid the hills. Next I cut the houses and trees from various colors and glued them over the white version. I added cloud above and a sentiment below.
Supplies – Poppy die Brevilla Hillside; Taylored Expressions Stitched Clouds; TE stamp set Welcome Home
Ironwork Window Bird – It’s easy to spot a Penny Black die! I stamped the background with a PB stamp then cut the window in the center of the stamped panel. Next I cut the window again from white and glued it on top of the stamped version. The bird was mounted behind the window. Finally I die cut the finished piece with the Memory Box die Pinpoint Rectangles to add some more textural interest.
