Create a simple masculine birthday card using Stampin Up Winter Woods Stamp Set - Mary Fish StampinUp rustic

Today’s masculine card is for my brother-in-law’s birthday.  It was inspired by this home decor from Arhaus (arhaus.com).   Stampin’ Up! is clearly is on trend!

I used the “sepia technique” I learned from Mike Funke in this video.   Tomorrow I’ll share a WOW! video using Mike’s technique as well as tips for creating this card and lining up the birch trees.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer.

Trim a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to 3 3/4 x 5 and adhere it to a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 Gray Granite card stock with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere to the card base as shown with Snail Adhesive.

Stamp the birch tree images in Soft Suede Ink onto Gray Granite card stock using the Stamparatus to neatly line them up.  Use an Aqua Painter to create the “sepia” look.  Watch Mike’s video to see how it’s done. Trim to a 3-inch square and adhere to a 3 1/4 piece of Soft Suede card stock with Snail Adhesive.

Wrap a piece of 3/16 Braided Linen Trim around the square, securing with a bow. Tuck a Leaf Trinket under the bow, securing in place with a Mini Glue Dot.

Using the greens from the Foliage Frame Thinlits Dies (shown above), crop a piece of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive card stock. Tuck behind the edge of the square and adhere all to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Two Super Simple Holiday Cards

Create a simple Christmas card using Stampin Up Warm Hearted & Detailed Deer Framelits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp duoI know that many of us need to create a lot of Christmas and winter holiday cards.  Today’s simple Saturday cards couldn’t get much easier for “mass production” but still deliver lots of WOW!

CARD #1 BLUE:  MY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer. The trimmer cuts and scores!

Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock to 3 3/4 x 5.  Run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the deer die from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.  TIP: I used Thick Whisper White for the top layer.  It is sturdier when adding a layer with negative space (in this case the deer).

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp the “Cheers to the New Year” sentiment (Warm Hearted)  in Blueberry Bushel Ink onto the Thick Whisper White layer, angled with the deer.

Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  TIP: When using the negative space of a die, use Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals generously, especially around the die cut area. This really takes advantage of the 3-D effect.

CARD #2 GOLD:  MY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Create a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base using Thick Whisper White card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer. 

Adhere a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Gold Foil to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock to 5 x 3 3/4.  Run through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine with the deer die from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.  Tip: I used Thick Whisper White for the top layer.  It is sturdier when adding a layer with negative space (in this case the deer).

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp the “Merry Christmas” sentiment (Warm Hearted) in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Flick the card stock to remove the excess powder, then set with a Heat Tool.
