A Brewed For You Bundle Birthday!

Today I'm using the Brewed for You bundle with the Brewed dies.  This is perfect for a man, but wait, it's perfect for anyone who enjoys a little brewed libation.  I'm working on birthday cards for a nephew and a brother-in-law. I'll share 2 versions that are very similar.

Brewed for You Card  Brewed dies  Stylish Shapes dies  Perfectly Penciled DSP  Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card was fun to make.  Start with a base of Basic Black cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Next, you'll need a piece of Basic White cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  Stamp the beer mug and the glass randomly over this paper using Memento Black.  Hint:  Let your paper dry for a couple minutes.  I went right on with the card and had a little smearing.  It's an opportunity to be creative, right!  I will share.

Use a piece of the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper cut to 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 down the left side of the card.  So here was my first smear.  It was right beside of the DSP I added and just to the left.  I covered it up with another piece of Perfectly Penciled cut to 1/8 x 5 1/4.  Butting it up next to the first paper covered almost all of the smear.  Of course a matching strip of paper must be added to the other side.

For the focal point cut a Mango Melody large circle and a Basic Black next largest circle using the Stylish Shapes dies.  These are glued to the card and to each other.

Stamp the mug on white and stamp the liquid in Mango Melody.  It's pretty easy since these are photopolymer clear stamps.  Stamp the bubbles as well.  These are stamped in Memento Black.

Cut these out using the Brewed dies.  I used Wink of Stella on the bubbles and the chilled mug.  Add these pieces with dimensionals.  Tuck the bubbles just a little behind the mug.

The saying is cut out using the Stylish Shapes as well.  I had a little strip of the 1/8 inch paper and decided to use it on the saying as well.  Add with glue and with dimensionals where needed.

Finish with some of the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

So here is my second card.  When I stamped the mug and glass I had some smearing right  behind where the top mug is located.  I also had smearing where I placed the saying.  I had to adjust.  I made three mugs and stamped the saying on Mango Melody.  It worked!

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp the bubbles, mug, and beer.  Cut out and glue to the card.  I cut these out because I wanted to put the bubbles behind just a little.  That cute saying is part of the Brewed for You stamp set.

He's All That! Twisted Gate Fold Card

Today I have a twisted gate fold featuring the He's All That stamp set and the He's the Man Designer Series Paper.  I love a paper with small images and this DSP answers the bill!  It's a great overall man paper but probably it's not just for men.  It's appeal could be wider of course.

He's All That  Twisted Gate Fold  He's the Man DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card is smaller than the usual card.  You might wonder about mailing it.  It will fit in the normal A2 card that we use in the USA.  

Start with a base of Early Espresso that measures 4 1/4 x 7 1/2.  Score at 2 1/2 and again at 5.  There is some diagonal scoring as well.  I do have a video below showing how to do the scoring.  For each of the end segments the diagonal goes in the same direction.  At the left start in the upper left corner and end in the lower right.  At the right start at the upper left as well and end in the right corner.  Use the cutting well on the Stampin' Trimmer.  Refer to the video.

The end sections will be folded with mountain folds.  At the left fold back and on the right fold down.

Now we have the basic fold.  Easier than it looks.  You will need 2 pieces of the He's the Man Designer Series Paper.  They measure 2 1/4 x 3 7/8.  Cut the paper diagonally.  For the paper with directionality start at the upper right and cut down to the corner.  It will go on the card behind the flaps if that helps with a visual.  The other paper has no direction.  You can cut it either way.

Glue all the pieces into place.

He's All That  Twisted Gate Fold  Card Pictured Open  He's the Man DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Use the  Stylish Shapes dies to cut the largest circle in Early Espresso and the next largest circle in Sahara Sand.  I used the Stamparatus to mount the stamp from He's All That.  I traced around the circle on my grid paper.  (I made this in a class.)  I wanted to make sure that the image was good and dark.  Glue the circles together.  Add a knot of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and use the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Be careful when using dimensionals to add the circle label.  You don't want to adhere the whole card so it won't open.  Lay the label on your card to determine where dimensionals should go on the flap.

The inside of the card is Sahara Sand measuring 2 1/4 x 4.  The saying is in the He's All That stamp set.

I realize that this is a different kind of fold.  I did enjoy making it.  Here's the video.  I hope you enjoy it.

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.

A Good Man Birthday Inside of Card by Jo Anne Hewins

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.

A Good Man Birthday Card for SIL by Jo Anne Hewins

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.

Enjoy Life Birthday card close up by Jo Anne Hewins

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.

Enjoy Life Birthday card inside by Jo Anne Hewins

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?

Enjoy Life Birthday Card for DJ by Jo Anne Hewins
