50th Birthday Card

Hi and Happy July!


This is the last card I made in June. It’s also card 7 for Craft from My Stash Summer challenge. I missed my monthly goal by 3 cards but I’ll make up for it this month!


I found a great sketch at Inkspire Me to use for this masculine 50th birthday card.



Everything I used is from Stampin’ Up! I cut the 50 with gold foil from the Large Number framelits. The circle was stamped with a little pattern stamp from the Number of Years set. I just couldn’t leave the circle plain lol! White space drives me crazy.


Here is a close up of the card, so you can see the shine~



And the sketch I used~


I’ll be back shortly with another card!


Supplies ~ all Stampin’ Up except where noted

Stamps: Number of Years, Birthday Banners (sentiment)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

CS: Delightful Dijon, Very Vanilla, Basic Black

DSP: Urban Underground

Other: goil foil paper, Large Number framelits, dimensionals, linen thread, Neutrals buttons, Layering Circle framelits

Goodbye Mojo Monday

Mojo Monday, one of the first sketch challenges out there, is ending it’s run with Sketch 500. I was so very sad to read the news! I have followed this site from the beginning.


I decided to use their last sketch for my husband’s birthday card. I have this post scheduled to go live after I give him the card lol. This is also card #3 for my Craft from My Stash challenge.



The inside sentiment is what inspired me to use this MFT Make a Wish stamp set. It’s one long line that wouldn’t fit on the block so I bent it and selective inked each part to make it go on two lines.



The front of the card was a labor of love trying to ink each candle individually as it was all one stamp! The coordinating dies cut them out individually. I stamped the panel behind the candles with MFT Balloon Strings background and the bottom panel is the MFT Happy Birthday background.


Here is the sketch ~



Have a great night!

Masculine Christmas Cards, Part 1

I volunteered to make my husband some Christmas cards for his co-workers. I had one night to make 5 cards which turned into one night and a morning because I just couldn’t finish it all.


Here is a set of 3 cards using the same sketch – the very last Sweet Sunday Sketch 🙁   I’m so sad this site has closed. I have always loved Karen’s sketches!


I started by stamping the trees from Lawn Fawn’s Let It Snow stamp set using my MISTI with MFT Jellybean Green hybrid ink and then I used my MISTI again to stamp the sentiment over the trees with MFT Hot Fudge hybrid ink. I think this is the first time I’ve really felt the MISTI was useful for me. I’ll have to use it for more layered stamping in the future.  I stamped 5 altogether and then cut them out using MFT Stitched Circle Stax.


This is the first card using the sketch as is ~

2015 Card 129 - Lawn Fawn Let it Snow


The second card I rotated the sketch ~

2015 Card 130 - Lawn Fawn Let It Snow


This last one was using the sketch flipped ~

2015 Card 131 - Let It Snow


Here is the sketch~



I’ll share the other two cards tomorrow!
