SUO Happiest Birthday Wishes Stampin Up Sale A Bration Stampin Up Occasions Mini

Hello Folks.  Welcome to SandiesKorner and the week end.  The sun is shining and it looks great outsdie but WOW it sure is still chilli out there this morning.  I'm hoping it will warm up a bit, I need to trim up some bushes and get them ready for spring.  Things are starting to bud here in ole' MO.

I got a little blind sighted at my craft fairs this year.  I was so happy to see folks buying handmade greeting cards.  They were asking for masculine cards and I didn't have very many.  I am on a crusade to try and get some masculine cards ready for this years craft shows.  So here we go.  Today I have a masculine card to share.  It is clean, simple but striking.  I think that covers all the bases.

SUO Outlined Occasions Sale A Bration Set Stampin Up Occasions Mini

My cardstock is Whisper White (100730), matted with a piece of Night of Navy (100867), matted again with WW.  I have a strip approx 1.25" wide by 3.75" long of NON.  I used our Square Latice Embossing Folder (119976) for a little pizzazz.  Even men like pizzazz.  LOL  I wrapped a piece of our Real Red Grososgrain  Ribbon  (retired) around it.  My designer paper is just perfect for the gentlemen.  It is from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (117155).  This is a large tablet like selection of dp.  I believe you get two (2) sheets of four (4) different designs.  Mine is so discombobulated, but I think that's right.  This is often overlooked, you can find it at the bottom of each family selection.

My stamp set is Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615/C122617), it is one of this year's Hostess Sets.  You can purchase this discounted set with your Hostess Cash that you earn when you host a Workshop of $150 or more.   Now thats a great plug for hosting a workshop plus it is Sale A Bration time  and you will earn even more FREE products plus a bonus tote or FREE stamps.  Newbies — I know you will have questions, I would love to talk to you about hosting your own workshop.  

My sentiment is from the same set.  I inked it up a little differently this time.  I know markers are normally the preferred way, but I don't know about you I have trouble getting a clean and crisp image with markers, so I decided to ink first with my NON stamp pad and then I took a cosmetic sponge applicator, dampened it just a bit with water and removed the NON ink from one of my presents then I used my Real Red Marker.  This worked beautifully, my mistake was I didn't press hard enough and I missed one of my corners.  But I still think it turned out great.  Try it and let me know how it works for you.  I used our 1 3/4" oval punch (119859) to punch it out.  On the inside I stamped "Celebrate" from one of our FREE SAB stamp sets.

Well I've been rambling here.  Hope you get the idea and can make a few of your own to add to your stash.  It's so nice to have what you need when you need it.  LOL  Thanks for stopping by this Saturday, have a great week end folks.  Toodles

  • This is a fabulous masculine card, Sandy.  I love how you lined the envelope, too.  The stamp set is one of my favorites in the entire catalog…especially the one you have used about the world receiving a present.  Love, love, love your card and envie!
