I have a very simple, masculine birthday card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! You’re My Type rubber stamp set (Occasions Mini Catalog).

  • The striped texture in Early Espresso (top left corner) was created using the Stampin’ Up! Striped Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (127710).  It’s one of many FREE gift choices earned with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration, our biggest promotion of the year!
  • The 5/16″ Neutrals Jumbo Brads (I used silver) are one of my favorite embellishments for a masculine motif.  The silver Mini Library Clip coordinates beautifully.
  • The solid typewriter stamp typically needs a little ink touch up to get the even coverage I prefer.  I used a Blender Pen to softly fill in the open spaces and move ink around.  Works like a champ!  Watch my Blender Pen Ink Fix Video Tutorial for more details.
  • I love getting inspiration from the deluge of home d?cor catalogs I receive in the mail.  My colors and graphic look were taken from this layout from Flor.
