Perfect Pennants, Again!

Hi all!  Been working on the tutorial  for the Gift Box/Cards tutorial all week. It should be done by tomorrow! It was more work than I thought it would be. But I’m sure you will love it!

When I got to my stamp room today, I felt needed to make some male cards.  I can’t stop using the Perfect Pennants stamp set!  I tend to gravitate to the same stamp sets.

This is the card I came up with. I CASED it from this card on Pinterest. I stepped it up a bit. These colors are really great together. I’m going to have to stock up on Gum Ball Green when it retires in June 😦

By The Tide

Well, I finally got my shipment from the new IBC! Now I can start posting for upcoming classes!

When By The Tide came out in the Spring Mini, I wasn’t sure if I wanted it or not, but I saw a lot of samples with it and had to get it.

Here are two cards I made with it. I needed a masculine sympathy card to send  😦

The other one will be in an upcoming class – any verse can be put on it.

Father’s Day Card

I realized that I didn’t have a Father’s Day/Masculine card class lined up before June! I’ve decided to swap out the “Bridal Shower” card on May 3rd for these style cards. We will be making only 1 with the button (because I only have 6 buttons) and the other two cards can be done with the twill ribbon or hemp.

There are only 6 slots for it so sign up if you want to do it!

Mojo Monday Submission

I thought I would do a Mojo Monday sketch.  Been trying to use some of the new In Colors. This card is made with Midnight Muse, Rasberry Ripple, Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla. Open Sea is the stamp set.  I used the new banner die  that’s coming out in the new caddy. I made the matted border by just glueing it on to another piece of card stock and cutting around the banner. You kind a need a steady hand for that technique!

A Request Being Filled

The fundraiser went well last night!  Thanks to the gals who came, stamped and donated!!!  It’s a great cause and my downline, Karen, was so appreciative!!!

Ok, on to the card. At the fundraiser last night, one of my favorite customers (well, all my customers are my favorite 🙂 suggested we do a masculine card. It took me all night, but I came up with this one. Especially now since Totally Tool will be retiring 😦  I hope they have some new great masculine sets in the new catty!!

This one was a little tricky. I actually used silver metallic ink for the silver parts of the tools using an old blender pen. Can’t use it again after using the silver metallic ink on it. But it came out great.  Look for it in an upcoming class in May!

I made a card last year similar to this.  I can’t find it anywhere in my computer. I’ll stick this one up on Pinterst so I’ll never have to search for it again!  It’s made with the retired stamp, On The Green. Enjoy!

Masculine Birthday Card

Here’s my version of the men’s shirt card.  This is very easy to do and a great masculine card.

I used the DSP Elegant Soiree and Not Quite Navy.  The stamps are from Best Dad Ever that will be in the new Idea Book & Catalog.

Simple huh?
