Masculine Birthday Card - Truly Tailored (retiring)


Happy Wednesday, everyone! Boy, this weather is crazy! We were close to 80 last Friday, we were in the 30s and it snowed again on Monday (thankfully none of it stuck, since the ground is too warm), and today, it's supposed to be in the 60s again! I'm ready for this weather cycle to end! I'm ready for Spring weather only! LoL Hopefully, Monday was the last day of winter weather until next winter!

Well, to more fun things to talk about. Here's the card I promised to show you last Saturday. This is the card I made for my dad for his birthday. I was inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest. It was made by Angela McKay.

I used the retiring Truly Tailored Stamp Set, True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (DSP), and Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog. I also used the retiring Bow Builder Punch from the Annual Catalog. I'm really going to miss all of these items! I absolutely LOVE the DSP and that corduroy ribbon!


Dimensions:

  • Crumb Cake:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base), 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" (embossed layer mat), & 3" x 5" (circle mat and tag)
  • Tranquil Tide:  2" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Very Vanilla:  3" x 3" (circle) & 4" x 5-1/4" (inside layer)
  • True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer), 4" x 1" (bow tie paper-front), 4" x 1/2" (bow tie-inside), 4" x 3/4" (bottom inside), and scraps (bow tie)
  • Night of Navy 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon:  6"

Instructions:

  1. Fold the Crumb Cake card base piece in half (fold on the left) to form card base. Attach the bow tie paper-front piece across the bottom of the DSP base layer piece. Wrap the corduroy ribbon around the top edge of the bow tie layer, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the DSP base layer piece. Then, attach the whole thing to the center of the card front.
  2. Emboss the Tranquil Tide piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the piece to the center of the Crumb Cake embossed layer mat piece. Then, attach it to the left side of the card (see left picture).
  3. Ink the words on the "Wishing You a Dapper Day" stamp from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set with the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the mustache and mouth with the Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp it onto the center of the Very Vanilla circle piece. Die-cut it out using the third, largest circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Die-cut another circle out of one end of the last Crumb Cake piece using the second, largest circle die. Attach the stamped circle onto the center of the Crumb Cake circle. Then, attach it to the top, right-side of the embossed layer using Stampin' Dimensionals (see left picture).
  4. Stamp the "Classy Kind of Guy" stamp onto the other end of the last Crumb Cake piece using the Night of Navy ink pad. Punch it out with the Tailored Tag Punch. From a scrap piece of the plaid paper from the DSP pack, punch out one of the small rectangle section and two of the bow section (oval-like/tabbed ends) of the Bow Builder Punch. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto one of the tab ends of a bow piece, bend the piece so both tabs are on the same side, and attach the tab ends together. Do the same with the other bow piece. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto the tab of one of the bow pieces, and attach the tab of the other bow piece to it to form the bow. Put a Mini Glue Dot onto each end of the rectangle piece. Wrap the rectangle around the middle of the bow, attach both ends to the back of the bow. Attach the bow tie to the top, center of the greeting tag using another Mini Glue Dot. Attach the tag to the bottom, left of the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Inside of card: Attach the DSP bottom inside piece across the bottom of the Very Vanilla inside layer piece. Attach the DSP bow tie-inside piece across the top of the first DSP strip. Stamp the "Today is Your Day..." stamp onto the top, center of the piece using the Chocolate Chip ink pad. Stamp the "Hoping Your Birthday..." stamp underneath the first using the Night of Navy ink pad (see right picture).

When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Truly Tailored


I hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday! I was about 5-10 minutes away from getting this posted about 5 hours ago, but we needed to leave to go celebrate my dad's birthday with him & Mom. We just got back, so I wanted to hurry up and finish it so it still gets posted on Saturday. LoL

I made a birthday card for Dad using this stamp set, Truly Tailored, and decided to make another quick and easy card for this week's Short & Sweet Saturday card. Yes, I'll be sharing my dad's card in a few days.

If you're needing to make a masculine card quick, this stamp set is perfect! I'm sad to say that it is retiring. You still have time to get it, though! They're going to keep making them until the middle part of May, and then they'll be while supplies last until May 31, 2018. The True Gentleman Designer Series Paper and Buttons are also retiring, but these are already while supplies last, so you might want to hurry! Click Here to find out about everything that's retiring.


Dimensions:
  • Night Of Navy:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Crumb Cake:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Tranquil Tide:  3" x 2" (label mat)
  • Very Vanilla:  3" x 2" (label)
  • True Gentleman Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 2" (plaid layer)
  • Night of Navy 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon:  6"
  • True Gentleman Buttons:  1 large button

Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Crumb Cake piece from the True Gentleman Cardstock Pack by running it through the Big Shot with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Fold the Night of Navy piece from the same cardstock pack in half (fold on the left) to form the card base.
  2. Lay the DSP piece onto the Stampin' Trimmer, with the 2" sides on the top and bottom. Line the bottom, right corner over the groove in the trimmer, and line the top, right corner with the 1" mark on the right side of the trimmer, and cut. Attach the larger piece to the bottom of the embossed layer. Wrap the ribbon along the top edge of the DSP, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of the embossed piece. Attach it to the middle of the card base front.
  3. Stamp the "Lookin' Sharp" stamp  from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set onto the Very Vanilla piece using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Fussy cut the image out with Paper Snips. Punch a label out of the Tranquil Tide piece from the True Gentleman Cardstock Pack using the Tailored Tag Punch. Attach the stamped label onto the center of the Tranquil Tide one. Attach it to the right side of the card, over the ribbon, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Attach the largest button from the True Gentleman Buttons onto the bottom, right corner of the DSP layer using one or two Mini Glue Dots.

When attaching, use SNAIL Adhesive, unless stated otherwise.

April Online Order Thank You Card


Here's the long-awaited Online Order Thank You Card for April. It's been a week since I've been able to make anything, and it felt so good to make a card again! The basement isn't done yet, but I've done all I can do on it until this weekend.

Any size online order at my Online Store gets this card as a thank you. Use this month's Host Code, 72QNZD7N, and you'll receive the instructions on how to make it as well. If your order is over $150 (before shipping & tax) DO NOT use the host code. This way, you'll get the Stampin' Rewards from Stampin' Up! AND get the instructions to the card.

Of course, I used my April Host Code Giveaway, Stampin' Dimensionals. It's actually half of  my giveaway. I'm giving the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals away, too! Click Here to find out how you can get both packs of Dimensionals FREE from me this month.

I used a few of the retiring items from the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog on this card, too. I used the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set and White Perfect Accents from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, and the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.


I'm not sharing the instructions for this card as I usually do, because they are exclusive to those that place a qualifying order from me at my ONLINE STORE in April.

YIKES!

Today, I had planned on making this month's giveaway/thank you card, so I could post a picture of it with this month's giveaway. Well, this is what I got to deal with instead:


We've had two rounds of snow in the last couple of weeks, with rain in-between. Today, we're under a flash flood warning, and now a tornado watch! Yesterday morning, we had two inches of snow. Now it's in the 60s, and raining like crazy! LoL Thankfully, the rain stopped here for a few hours this afternoon, but severe weather is supposed to be on the way here later tonight. 

When I went down to my office to work this morning, I found the carpet in one part of my office totally saturated, and it spread within a few minutes to other parts of my office, and into my stamping classroom. When we walked on it, water came up around our shoes. My son and I had to get everything out of all of the lowest shelving in the unit on the right (picture above). The picture only shows one short end of it. It's pretty long the other way, and has cubes on all four sides! We also had to get everything that was on the floor picked up. We've lived here over 8 years, and we've even had some major flooding in the area a few times, but we've never had this much rain get into the basement before! The person before us didn't either.


My husband came home from work to help. We put boards under my desk to keep it from getting wet. It got so bad in one corner, my hubby had to cut a big chunk of the carpet out. It got so wet, that we'll be ripping out all of the carpet in both my office, and my classroom. We've been planning to do this someday, but we weren't ready for it to be needed now. Thankfully, that's as bad as it got. It could have been A LOT worse! The walls stayed dry, which I'm so thankful for!


The picture above shows how my classroom looks right now. That's some of what my son & I moved out of my office. There's even another 6' table full of stuff in our bedroom. Thankfully, I have a couple weeks before I have another event, so hopefully it'll all be put back in order before then!

So, I might not be able to create too much for a little while. Hopefully, I can get back in my office soon, so I can start making projects again! 

I will be able to keep you all up-to-date on Stampin' Up! stuff, though!

THE RETIRING LIST COMES OUT MONDAY, APRIL 9TH....STAY TUNED!
