A Good Man Birthday Card

My son-in-law Robby had a birthday last week.  Of course he gets a handmade card!  This is the card I made for him this year.

A Good Man Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card is Robby to a T.  If you have followed me, you know that I am the proud grandmother of Sagan.  She's my only grandchild.  Robby is a wonderful father to her and husband to my daughter Jessie.  I always include a few pics of Sagan at the end of my Tuesday's Timely Tidbits newsletter each Tuesday.  Feel free to subscribe.  I give lots of news, but I think Sagan at the end is the best part.  The A Good Man stamp set is perfect!

This card begins with a base of Pool Party that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

For the words down the right side of the card front, use the Stamparatus.  The HAPPY BIRTHDAY is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Position this stamp between the top right corner and the first notch on the side of the Stamparatus.  Stamp the saying, then take out the clear plate and put it down a section.  Continue to the end of the paper.  This is called hinge stamping.  Position the Here's to You stamp.  This stamp is from the Seaside Notions stamp set.  Hinge stamp your way down the paper again.  I did stamp in Stazon Black.

Add a piece of Pool Party check paper to the left side.  This measures 7/8 x 5 1/2.  This is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.

Stamp the image on a piece of Whisper White.  Use Stazon Black.  Color the image with pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 1 and 2.  Use a Blender Pen after coloring lightly with the pencils.

Around the outside of the image, I colored with the Light Pool Party Blend.  Cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  Add to the card with dimensionals.  The saying is from the A Good Man stamp set.  Glue the part that overlaps the label and add a dimensional behind the rest.

Here's the inside of Robby's card.  The saying is from A Good Man and from Perennial Birthday.  The image is from A Good Man.  Color with the colored pencils here too.

This was my first time using the A Good Man stamp set.  I've been waiting for Robby's birthday.  It's so perfect for him.  I bet you know someone who deserves a card made with this set.

Thanks so much.  If you need supplies, I would really love to help you.  I would be honored!

Enjoy Life on Your Birthday!

The stamp set Enjoy Life is one of the Million Dollar sets by the Million Sales Achiever Connie Fitzgerald.  Isn't it fun that these achievers can help design a stamp set!  Connie says that this stamp set was made with both of her children in mind.  She included some sayings her family lives by.  I like that!

I used this set to make a card for my nephew.  He is a bike rider so it fits him perfectly.

Enjoy Life Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This card starts with a base of Blueberry Bushel measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Sahara Sand and is 4 x 5 1/4.  The last layer is Whisper White and is 3 3/4 x 5.  

Stamp the white layer with the Swirly Frames stamp set.  I used the colors Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Blueberry Bushel.  I used the 2 circles and the square.

There is a layer across the card in Sahara Sand that is 1 x 5 1/4.  Stamp it randomly with the Blueberry square.

The bike rider is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  I used the Stamperatus to stamp this.  The stamperatus allows me to stamp in the same place more than one time.  Sometimes a solid stamp like this needs to be stamped more than once.  Cut out the biker with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

The Happy Birthday is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  Stamp in Blueberry and then cut the words apart. 

Add some of the Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain Ribbon to the beginning of Happy and the end of Birthday.  Also add to the biker circle.  The biker and the words are added with dimensionals.

For the inside, stamp the biker again.  I used the Stamperatus again for this.  The saying is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. Enjoy Life Sahara Sand Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a pretty quick card to make once you have the design.  I also made it without the blue.  Which do you like best?

Apron of Love for Father's Day

Hey!  I'm so glad you are visiting my blog today.  I want to share a card I've made for my husband for Father's Day.  I used the Apron of Love stamp set along with the Apron Builder Framelits.  I think he'll like it.  I'm very fortunate to have such a great husband.  He is a wonderful father and now grandfather.  I know I've mentioned that we have a new granddaughter.  Well, my husband John has not been able to decide what he wants to be called.  He just wanted to wait and let her decide.  But you know we have to call him something.  He has changed his mind several times.  We have now decided on Grammie and Gramps.  We'll see.  Anyway, here is the card.

Apron of Love for Father's Day by Jo Anne Hewins

As many of you, I spend a little time using Pinterest to look up inspiration for cards to make.  I think it was Mary Fish that had a card made up of the little squares from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I like the look of it and decided to use this technique with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.   Here are all the details.

The card base is Blueberry Bushel.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Whisper White and is cut at 3 3/4 x 5.  I picked different sheets from the Wood Textures for the squares.  I wanted it to have a patchwork look.  To place these, I started in the middle of the top.  I also used my grid paper to help me.  I placed the middle of the card on the center line of the grid paper.  I eyeballed the middle of the square and placed it at the grid line.  I hope that makes sense.

At the top of the white and wood layer, I ran a length of the Linen Thread.  The saying is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set stamped in Blueberry Bushel.  Use the Classic Label Punch to punch that out.  I did tie a little knot around the twine.

The apron is cut from the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  I am in love with these packs of paper.  I know I'll be buying a lot of it!  Cut out the apron, ties, neck string, and pocket.  Use the Apron Builder Framelits.  Glue all to the front of the card.

The cooking utensils are also part of the Apron Builder Framelits.  Cut them from the Silver Foil Sheets.  Glue so that they are sticking out of the Apron pocket.

The saying inside the card is from the Apron of Love stamp set.  I added a 1/2 inch strip of Wood Textures, left from some other project, and a tiny strip of the Blueberry stripe.  Add a few more of the utensils.

Have a Birthday Beer!

Today, I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my nephew.  I recently bought the stamp set Mixed Drinks for the occasions.  Here's the card.

Mixed Drinks

This is a cute little set.

  • The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.
  • Start by stamping the beer mug randomly over the card in Smoky Slate ink.
  • The washi tape used is from my retired stash.
  • Stamp the mug in Basic Black Memento ink on Whisper White.  I used Crushed Curry to stamp in the beer.  Add the bubbles around the mug in Smoky Slate.  Cut this out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Cut a scalloped frame from Basic Black card stock.  Glue together and mount all of its with dimensionals.
  • The thumbs up image is from a free set with got at the On Stage Savannah called Tabs for Everything.  Stamp in black and punch with the 3/4 inch circle punch.  Use a dimensional to adhere to the card.
  • The sentiment is stamped in black and is from Guy Greetings.  To be truthful I messed it up the first time I stamped it.  That's why it's now on another piece of notched paper.  It's what stampers do, right?

I usually have the insides of the card, but this one got mailed before I photographed it.  I stamped the beer mug inside, but I'm not sure of the sentiment used.  

Mixed Drinks birthday card

My post is short and sweet today.  This card can go together in minutes.  It's even faster if you don't mess up the sentiment the first time!  Thanks for stopping by today. I love that you did!
