PhotoPlay Paper Man Card Paper Collection Masculine Card

Wow does time fly!! It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been keeping up on Facebook and Instagram!

A super quick and easy masculine card, this Photoplay “Man Card” paper collection was perfect! I used gold foil to mat my layers on top of a woodgrain stamped cardstock base.  Gold metal dots finished off the card nicely and tied all the layers together.

I used the scraps to make the coordinating envelope – having a custom made coordinating envelope really adds that extra touch of personalization  🙂

Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine with Spectrum Noir Markers

It’s been absolutely gorgeous in Vancouver this winter, temperatures hovering around 10 degrees since January while the rest of east coast has been getting tortured with insane amounts of snow and crazy cold temperatures!

That is what inspired me to make this card from Lawn Fawn, using their Hello Sunshine stamps & coordinating dies.  I have been coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers and I have been really starting to get the hang of it. While I still have tons to learn, I was happy with the way these little tweety birds turned out so I knew I had to use them on a card right away!

Stampin Up’s new Pinwheel Sizzlit

Stampin Up Pinwheel Sizzlit Card

Stampin Up Pinwheel Sizzlit Card

Hiya Stampers!!  Here is my first creation using the Pinwheel sizzlit from Stampin Up! that just arrived on Monday.  I *finally* tidied up my work table and had some time to sit down and tinker…. only to make another gigantic mess creating this card  😛

This is the first of many I suspect, as what I had in my mind isn’t exactly how it turned out – but it was still cute enough so I decided to keep it.  I wanted to put a banner or bunting across the top – but I don’t have the pennant punch… So I improvised and used the petite curly label punch instead.  I think it would have looked more like I wanted if I had of put a few more layers of bakers twine and bows at the end?!

Guess I will have to get to the work table tonight and find out huh?

materials used:

  • Baja breeze card stOck (base)
  • Stampin Up Pinwheel
  • Subtles patterned DSP
  • Whisper White
  • Dots Embossing folder
