cards- masculine

It's a Beautiful World

Have you noticed the World of Good Suite on pages 24-26 of the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog?  It makes great masculine cards, adventure cards, and travel memories.

World of Good Suite

You just might want to check it out.  Today I have a card using the Beautiful World stamp set, the World Map dies, the Old World Paper embossing folder, and the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I'm using a sketch from the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #616.

CCMC616

Here is the card that I made using this fantastic suite.

CCMC #616 Beautiful World by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Early Espresso and is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Run the front of the card through a die cut and emboss machine with the Old World Paper embossing folder.  It's just so pretty!

Add a piece of the World of Good Specialty paper cut to 3 x 4 1/4.  I love the map!  I sponged around the edges of this paper with Early Espresso ink.  

The next layer looks like an old weathered document of some sort.  Cut the paper at 2 x 4 and sponge around it as well.  Place it leaning over toward the right. 

The Bumblebee strip is from this same paper pack. It is 3/4 x 3 1/4.

The world is stamped in Early Espresso on Misty Moonlight card stock.  Cut it out with the World May dies.  Cut the globe stand from Gold Foil.  Glue to the globe and add it with dimensionals.

The saying is stamped in Early Espresso.  Cut out with the Stitched Shapes dies.  Add with dimensionals.  

Add a few Misty Moonlight dots from the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots.  Now there has been some issues with the enamel dots coming apart.  I think they are not orderable at this time while the situation is fixed.

CCMC #616 Beautiful World Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here's the inside of the card.  It's all stamped in Early Espresso and is part of the Beautiful World stamp set.

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop Manly May

Welcome to the One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop for May 2020.  This month we are celebrating men.  I'm so glad you are here.  Be sure to visit all of the blogs on this hop.  You know, Father's Day will be here soon.  You'll get lots of ideas today!

I'm using the Country Club Designer Series Paper from the January-June Mini catalog.  This paper is on the Last Chance List.  It's going away soon!  Here is my card.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Garden Green card stock cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Whisper White measures 4 x 5 1/4.  

The green plaid paper from the Country Club Designer Series Paper is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  I did some hinge stamping for the left side of the card using my Stamparatus.  The stamp set is Perennial Birthday.  This stamp set is also retiring.  I just love the bold happy birthday used here.  I will miss it since it is so perfect for masculine cards.  The Stamparatus allows you to go back and stamp again and again if needed to make the words dark.

OSAT Country Club Birthday Card Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

Use the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut the banner in Garden Green.  Cut another smaller banner from the designer paper and glue onto the larger one.

The saying is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  It's actually parts of two of the sayings in the stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black on Whisper White scraps and then cut the words apart.  Glue to the banner.  I added the banner to the card front first with dimensionals so I would get the words on there straight.

The twine accent is made from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack, also on the Last Chance Product list.  I used the green and the black.  Pull the threads apart and then lay them back together.  Since this twine is a little thicker, I think this helps the thread lay a little flatter.   Tie the twine into knots about every 1 1/2 inches.  Add with glue dots behind the knots.

For my 3D project I'm using the Mini Pizza Box.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Top View by Jo Anne Hewins

The top of the box is covered by a 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 piece of the green plaid.  Make the green banner with the smaller plaid banner just as you did for the card.  Stamp the Happy Birthday from the Perennial Birthday stamp set on Whisper White.  Cut this out with the next smallest banner from the Stitched Nested Labels.  The green banners go from corner to corner.  The white label goes across.

Make the knots for each end of the green banner.  Pull apart strands from the twine again and tie in a knot.  Trim to size.  Add with a glue dot.

OSAT Country Club Mini Pizza Box Project by Jo Anne Hewins

The sides of the box are covered with designer paper strips that measure 7/8 x 3 1/4.  Add some of the knotted twine around the box.

Here are the two together.  Later I'll fill this box with some Butterfinger nuggets for my husband.  That's his favorite!

I hope you will continue on the hop.  I can't wait to see what everyone has this month!

I do have another post today for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  My card there coordinates with these projects.  Go here to check it out.

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.

A Good Man Birthday Close Up by Jo Anne Hewins

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!

Instructions:

Die cut 10 golf balls from Whisper White Cardstock. Glue the golf balls down randomly onto the Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Be sure some of the golf balls are off the edges. Trim the edges of the golf balls.

Run the Blueberry Bushel cardstock with the golf balls through the Absolutely Argyle Embossing folder.

Die cut Garden Green rectangle frame using the 2 largest rectangle frames. Hint: use a small piece of washi tape or painters’ tape to keep the 2 dies in place when run through die cutting machine. Die cut 2 frames and glue together to make a firmer frame.

Die cut 6 pieces of Garden Green grass and glue into position along bottom edge Blueberry Bushel cardstock. Overlap the edges slightly and leave the grass top edges unglued so can curl slightly.

Color golfer as desired using Blends.

Die cut thin banner from Whisper White cardstock and stamp sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink. Stay close to the far-left end so can trim off the right end to fit.

A Dashing Deer Country Christmas

24 hour sale GIF

Hi to you today.  I'm using the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Detailed Deer dies for my project today.  Both are in the Annual catalog.  I've added in a couple more sets, too.

Dashing Deer by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a Christmas card, but could easily be change with the sentiment.  It would make a great masculine birthday card, wouldn't it!

Start with a card base of Soft Suede that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

There are lots of layers to this card.  The Mossy Meadow layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  Next is a layer of Crumb Cake.  This one measures 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Run this through your cutting machine with the Pinewood Plank Embossing Folder.

The next layer is Mossy Meadow again.  This is cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I used the 4th one from the outside.  

Now cut a layer of Whisper White with the 5th rectangle.  The Whisper White layer is stamped with the evergreen trees from the Waterfront stamp set.  Stamp in Mossy Meadow ink.  Some are stamped off.

Add the white layer to the mossy meadow one.  Run some of the Linen Thread around these layers twice.  I tape the ends of the thread to the back of the card with regular tape.  Add these layers with dimensionals to the card.

Dashing Deer Close UP by Jo Anne Hewins

Using my Stamparatus, stamp the two deer in Soft Suede on Whisper White.  I used the Stamparatus so that I would be able to stamp more than one time.   I want the deer to be dark and solid.  Cut these out with the Detailed Deer dies.  Glue these to the card.  Be careful.  Part of the deer hang off of the white layer.

Tie a bow of Linen Thread and add it to the card with a rolled up glue dot.

Stamp the work Blessed in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White.  This word comes from the To a Wild Rose stamp set.  Fussy cut around the word and glue this on the card front.

Dashing Deer Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

Here is the inside of the card.  The saying, in Cherry Cobbler, is from the Winter Woods stamp set.  Stamp a deer in the corner.  Again, I think I would use the Stamparatus for that.
