Say “Howdy” with a Quick Masculine Card!

Say “Howdy” with a Quick Masculine Card! Using Stampin' up! Mix and Match Products and Spotlight on Nature dies. Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

NEW Stampin’ Up! Mix & Match products (p. 18-21 of the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog) PLUS one key “ingredient” (Spotlight on Nature circle dies) are at the core of today’s masculine card. I have become a super fan of the Mix & Match Calming Creek Cards & Envelopes and pre-cut sentiments of the Mix & Match Saying Something Ephemera Pack (“Howdy”). The Spotlight on Nature Dies offer an assortment of circle sizes with darling details. “Zoom in” to discover the three different styles of die cut edges!

Do You Fancy a Fancy Fold Card?

Create this Happy Birthday Fun Fold using the Wildly Flowering Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

The gorgeous floral patterns of the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Flowering Designer Series Paper dress up today’s simple fancy fold card. The muted chic of the 2023-2025 In Colors look so exquisite together!

WHAT I LOVE! A hint of sparkle and a hint of rustic. This fancy fold card gets the right balance of coordinated “personality” from three Moody Mauve sparkle gems (2023-2025 In Color Opaque Sparkle Dots) and Pebbled Path Jute (divided into strands – see details and video here).

Create a Country Flowers Friendship Card

Create this card using the Country Flowers Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Let’s take a walk together through the NEW Country Woods Suite.  It’s defined by beautifully coordinated products that will appeal to both traditional and modern tastes.

WHAT I LOVE!  I added a splash of color (Pool Party, Petal Pink, Cajun Craze) to the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends.  However, I like the clean, modern look of leaving the leaves and teapot white.  The two flower centers receive a pop of personality with Adhesive Backed Sparkle Gems (champagne).

Create this card using the Unbounded Beauty Suite Collection by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' PRetty

Today’s simple screen card is a chic mix of products from the Stampin’ Up! Unbounded Beauty suite.  To create the screen effect, I cut a  3 x 4 1/2 pattern from the Unbundled Beauty Designer Series Paper into 1 x 4 1/2 strips.    The sentiment was whipped up using the Unbounded Love Bundle (save 10% on the bundle), one of My Favorite Things from the Stampin’ Up! 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.
