Whiskey Business

Need a great set for our guys? How about the Whiskey Business stamp set found in our Annual Catalog on page 33? This set contains some wonderfully classic images and sentiments perfect for those men in our lives who enjoy this kind of thing.

Check out these two cards using the set. This first card uses our Water Painters (151298) to add some color the images.

Whiskey Business

And this card is done in Cinnamon Cider, Mossy Meadow and Misty Moonlight – what a great masculine color combo.

Whiskey Business

Simple heat embossing was done for the glass and then VersaMark was used to create the bottom tone on tone panel. Texture was added using our Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder (152718).

So what do you think? This old fashioned sentiment makes me think of the mock brandy old fashions that my dad use to make for me at our tavern growing up. It was a real treat and made me feel so grown up.

Enjoy!

Rooted in Nature

We are all trying to get out a bit more and spend a little more time with the great outdoors so today I thought I’d share some cards made with the Rooted in Nature stamps and Nature’s Root Dies. This bundle is super for year round cards, masculine cards and more since it is filled with some wonderful sentiments.

This first card is done in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.

It also uses the Woodland Embossing Folder (152881) to create some texture along with the Braided Linen Trim (147808).

This next card uses the same Braided Linen trim but this time teams it up with some layering.

First the leaves are stamped in Mint Macaron Classic Ink. Then slice of tree is stamped in Soft Suede and is fussy cut with Paper Snips. A little sponging along the edges not only adds depth but also helps hide the edges. It’s popped up along with the top set of leaves. And of course, one of my favorite punches is used for the sentiment. The Triple Banner Punch (138292) is one that I reach for over and over again, so it is a great addition to your collection.

And here is a great monochromatic card – a classic color choice of black and white never fails to impress.

A little sparkle is added with our Glittered Organdy Ribbon (147897).

And finally this last card is packed with a lot of texture.

It uses our Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (152320) along with the oak tree image which has been colored with our Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers for a cool effect.

So what do you think? Does it inspire you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Rooted in Nature (146482)

Accessories: Nature’s Roots Dies (151786), Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (152320) and Woodland Embossing Folder (152881)

Country Livin’

Do you sometimes put something you are working on aside and think – oh I’ll get back to that? I know I have a stack of things and I recently went through it to clean up my craft room. I was excited when I found this card that I did during a shoe box swap. I had not done a nice job as I wanted on some of the parts since I was in a hurry and so was going to fix it when I got home. LOL Fast forward…. you know how that goes.

Well I got it done with a few changes since it had been so long, but I really like how it turned out.

I’m afraid I don’t have any information on who shared this project, but I still love the original card that inspired me.

Masculine cards are always great to have on hand and this set is a particular favorite of mine for the guys in my life.

Well that is it for today – stop back by tomorrow when I will be sharing a fun little treat that you can whip up for St. Patty’s Day or other special occasion. Till then… Happy Stamping!

#imbringingbirthdaysback with the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set

Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.

This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.

I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial so you can recreate the Baby Wipe Technique for your projects!

Country Road & More

I’m feeling a little bit country today and this set has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it for me and I almost missed it in the Annual Catalog. I’m a country girl at heart and grew up among the dairy farms of Wisconsin so these images remind me of my childhood and the country side dotted by red barns.

Today’s cards are done in our neutrals and make great masculine cards. This firsts card is done with Crumb Cake and Basic Black – a monochromatic card that is striking.

And this second card uses our new colors, Gray Granite and Merry Merlot along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper –

a bit of Silver Embossing and Silver Mini Sequins add a bit more texture to the card. Can you see the plants stamped in the background of the wheel and weather vain? It just adds a hint of interest and texture.

And how about this card done with the Artisan Texture, Enjoy Life and Stitched All Around stamp sets.

I love the way the Linen Thread is applied to the card strip – an easy technique, but it adds a lot of interest.

So, have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like and why?

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Country Road (147466/147469), Artisan Textures (146570/141781), Enjoy Life (148190),  and Stitched All Around (146629/146632)
