Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Birthday Card

Good morning! Today I’m sharing a nautical theme masculine Birthday Card made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set, the coordinating Smooth Sailing dies and the World of Good specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card design is based on the Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP534. Here’s the pretty sketch:

Since the card sketch calls for any shape, I decided to use the lighthouse for a fun twist!

I used my blending brush to add Crumb Cake ink around the edges of a panel of Crumb Cake World Of Good designer series paper and then embossed the panel with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I cut three Early Espresso ropes with the rope die from the Smooth Sailing dies and adhered them to the embossed panel and adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered the panel to the front of a Crumb Cake card base.

I stamped the lighthouse from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home cling stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Crumb cake panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Smooth Sailing dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set and trimmed it to a thin border. I used blending brushes with Crumb Cake ink to ink the Misty Moonlight compass panels from the World of Good DSP and adhered the panels to a Misty Moonlight mat. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front with glue dots and popped the lighthouse on with dimensionals. I cut out the rope knot from the Smooth Sailing dies from Early Espresso ink and adhered it to the ropes with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped another lighthouse from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home stamp set in stamped off Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the compass in Crumb Cake ink in the upper corner and stamped the beautiful sentiment from the Happy Thoughts cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of World of Good DSP and adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The map themes from the World of Good specialty DSP compliment the nautical themes from the Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home stamp set pretty nicely. The World of Good specialty DSP is on the retiring list and is currently available for a 40% discount and though I didn’t use them for today’s card, the brass foil accents on some of these papers are a nice way to add some bling to masculine cards. So be sure to check it out.

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World Congratulations Card

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Last week I made a very feminine floral congratulations card, and today I’m sharing a more masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World bundle and the World of Good specialty designer series paper. The old world map theme of these products are so classic and make such elegant masculine cards. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was also inspired by the current sketch challenge in Sunday Stamps SSC252.

I thought the grid layout would go well with the map themes in the World of Good DSP so I chose one for the background and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I chose another one to make the pattern for the sketch on the left side and adhered the pieces to my card front.

I used the World Map dies to cut the globe out of Misty Moonlight and Crumb Cake and the globe stand from Early Espresso and adhered them together with dots of liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World cling stamp set in Early Espresso on a strip of Misty Moonlight and cut it out with the label die from the Floral Gallery Dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with liquid glue and popped the globe and globe stand on with dimensionals – And the card front is done!!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World stamp set in Early espresso and the globe in Crumb Cake. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of World of Good DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beautiful World bundle is perfect for masculine cards and the globe dies are incredibly detailed! It’s the perfect bundle for Congratulations cards – and graduation season is just around the corner!

As a side note, today is also my two year Blogaversary! Two years ago I started Stampin In The Meadows blog with this post and and 465 posts later, I’m here. I’ve learned so much in this journey! Thanks to all my followers!! ❤️

Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Anniversary Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing a Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches anniversary card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This sweet bundle is perfect to welcome spring, but I chose muted neutral colors so that it would look more masculine since it’s for my special man. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I cut a panel of Gray Granite with the circular leafy window die from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches bundle and embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I used the largest circle die from the Layering Circles dies to cut a circle in the same place on a slightly larger Gray Granite panel and adhered these together. I do this because the embossing softens the card stock and I want it to be sturdy so I can pop it off the card base with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Soft Suede with the branch die and adhered it to the layered panel, trimming off the end.

I embossed a small Basic White panel with the Woodland embossing folder and used my blending brush to color it with Soft Suede ink. I adhered the panel to the front of a Soft Suede card base and popped the layered window panel on top with dimensionals. I love the shadows that the leafy cutout cast on the embossed woodland inset! I stamped the detailed birds from the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White and stamped their wings on top. Then I cut them out with their corresponding dies and popped them on the branch with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates cling stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Gray Granite and cut it out with the Label Me Fancy punch. I adhered some Misty Moonlight ribbon on the card and topped it with the label. If finished the card with silver metallic pearls.

For the inside, I the sentiments from the Forever & Always stamp set in Misty Moonlight and Soft Suede inks on a Basic White panel. I brushed some Soft Suede ink on an embossed strip of Basic White and adhered it to the bottom with liquid glue before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches bundle is really sweet and versatile bundle with lots of different bird stamps – they are 3-step photopolymer stamps so you can color the birds in many different ways. It also has branches with leaves and flowers and a beautiful nest and eggs. And the dies are really fabulous cutting out the stamped images and so much more! It’s perfect for making cards with Spring Themes!

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Video Tutorial

Good Monday Morning! I hope that it’s the start of a wonderful week for you! This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon featuring the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle along with the Well Suited designer series paper. I fell in love with this bundle at first sight. I’ve always liked cards that look like clothes and with lots of guys in my family, I need to make lots of masculine cards. And the suit card that you can make with this bundle is perfect! It makes a beautiful (handsome?) card and it does so very easily! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I lined up a panel of the Well Suited grey pinstripe designer series paper on my grid paper and placed the large V die from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle so that it lined up at the 1″ and 3-1/4″ mark on the ruler and secured it with some washiest tape. This gives you a well centered jacket. I ran it through my die cutting machine to cut the jacket. I adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue just around the outside edge, leaving the V open so I could tuck the tie underneath.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited dies, I cut the collar piece from Basic White and the two tie pieces from the Well Suited designer series paper. I cut the knot in a different direction from the long tie and adhered it to the top of the tie with liquid glue. I adhered the collar to the top of the card aligning it even with the top of the card and centered in the opening. I applied the liquid glue only to the top edge so that I could slip the tie under the bottom of the collar.

I applied a little liquid to the tie and slipped it under the jacket and then tucking it under the collar. I slid it into position so it was straight and pressed. I adhered the jacket lapel and the chest pocket with liquid glue and adhered two Basic Gray buttons, one near the top of the V and one at the bottom. I finished the tie with a silver metallic pearl tie tac.

For the inside, I didn’t want to use the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited great Father’s Day sentiment (It’s way too early), so I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the same Well Suited DSP as the tie and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is a wonderful set for making masculine cards. I’m really impressed at how great the suit looks and how easy it was to put together. It’s definitely a bundle you need if you make a lot of masculine cards.

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle and Well Suited designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here’s the sketch we’re using.

My card also works for the #TGIFC301 challenge at TGIF Challenges with a fun plaid theme:

I started by adhering a panel of the Pacific Point and tweed plaid panels of Well Suited designer series paper to Basic Black mats. I adhered the small panel flush with the top of it’s mat and then I adhered the small panel to the large one, aligning the top of the DSP panels.

I slipped a buckle on the Gray Granite ribbon and wrapped it around the layered panel, adhering it in the back. I adhered the panel to the front of a Basic Gray card base. I stamped the large bow tie from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small panel of Poppy Point paper from the Well Suited DSP pack and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out another bow tie from Basic White and adhered it to the back of the tie to make it stiffer.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the bottom of a small Basic White panel and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I popped the bow tie on top of the sentiment with dimensionals and popped the label on the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with tweed paper from the Well Suited designer series paper pack and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is a great new bundle for making masculine cards, especially with the coordinating Well Suited designer series paper.

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Birthday Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set to make snow capped mountains for a western landscape birthday card. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I was also inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #466:


I set up the mountain range stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in my Stamparatus and secured Whisper White card stock with both magnets so it wouldn’t move. I stamped the mountains in Sahara Sand ink and then wiped the stamp and inked the top of the mountains with Versamark ink and stamped again. I sprinkled white embossing powder on the Versamark and heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny. I masked the mountains and used the new blending brushes that will be coming in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalog to color the sky with Balmy Blue and Pacific Point inks. I love how brilliant the Pacific Point makes the sky and contrasts with the snow caps!

I masked off the sky and the embossed mountain tops and used a blending brush again to apply Crumb Cake ink on the rest of the card stock. I stamped the tree line from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake ink along the bottom of the mountains. I stamped the double tree stamp in Old Olive and the single tree stamp in Mossy Meadow to create the forest in the foreground, stamping off to create depth. I cleaned the tree stamp and then I stamped over the small trees at the bottom of the mountains in Mossy Meadow ink by inking up just the tip of the single tree stamp. Finally, I stamped the little birds in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat.

I trimmed the end of a Sahara Sand strip with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Cajun Craze ink. I adhered two leaves from the In Good Taste elements and a double bow made with linen thread with glue dots to the corner of the panel. I adhered the label over the embellishments with glue dots. I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base and popped the mountain panel on top with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze in on a Whisper White panel. I stamped thee double tree from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in Old Olive ink on the side of the panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The white embossed mountain tops are so dramatic against the blue sky and in life the shine from the embossed lines is pretty. I think that next time I should try this with a crooked line at the bottom of the snow rather than a straight line, what do you think?

Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Birthday Card

Good Morning! Today I have a simple masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal Cling stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the duck from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the largest stitched oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I colored it with Bermuda Bay, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends. I colored the ground with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and the background with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow card stock with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I adhered an antique corner to each corner with a glue dot. I adhered a panel of World of Good specialty designer series paper to an Early Espresso mat. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste designer series paper on top.

I adhered the embossed Mossy Meadow panel on the layered DSP panel and popped the art panel on top with dimensionals. I popped the panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the plant from the Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set in Crumb Cake ink after stamping off twice. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of World of Good DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Field Journal stamp set is like a walk in the woods. The pretty line drawn images are great for coloring and would make a great card for any nature lover.

Stampin’ Up! Snow Front Birthday Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Masculine Birthday Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front photopolymer stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Nature cards are always good themes for masculine birthdays and the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set is one that helps you create beautiful natural landscapes that look like watercolor paintings. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by stamping the mountains from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set in Gray Granite ink twice along the middle of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large pine tree in Garden Green ink, the deer in Cinnamon Cider ink and the lake in Balmy Blue ink. I used the swirl stamp to stamp some Pear Pizzazz ink on the ground after stamping off.

I lightly sponged the sky above the mountains in Balmy Blue ink with my sponge dauber and lightly sponged some Pear Pizzazz ink on the ground and mountains. I adhered the stamped panel to a Garden Green mat with Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped Linen Thread around the layered panel and tied a knot and popped it on the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink on a small Garden Green panel and cut it out with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a small silver metallic pearl and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the tree, deer and ground in the corner of a Whisper White panel using the same colors as the card front. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set has lots of elements to create beautiful watercolor – like landscapes just by stamping and it’s easy and fun. You can use it with other stamp sets such as the similar Waterfront and My Meadow stamp sets. I kept this card simple and used the entire card front for my stamped image so it has a lot of white space, but you can also stamp a smaller image and layer it with embossed card stock or natural texture designer series paper. It’s very versatile and the results are amazing!

Stampin’ Up! Waterfront and Rooted in Nature Birthday Card

Good Morning! I do not have a sneak peek this morning, it is an oldies but goodies kind of day. I made a nature themed masculine birthday card with the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront and Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature stamp sets. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the mountains from the Stampin’ Up! Waterfront stamp set in Basic Gray ink across a panel of light wood grained In Good Taste designer series paper. I masked part of the mountain and stamped the sun in Daffodil Delight ink. I removed the mask and stamped the trees in Garden Green ink and some grass using the double stroke stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink. I finished off the mountain scene by stamping the birds from the Mountain Air stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I stamped the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set using my stamparatus. I inked up the trunk using Soft Suede ink and stamped. Then, I inked the leaves using Garden Green ink and stamped again. The stamparatus gives me the precision of stamping in the same place with different ink colors. Then I cut the tree out with the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots Dies.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays cling stamp set in Basic Gray ink on the right side of a Very Vanilla strip. I adhered it to a Basic Gray mat and then adhered it to the stamped DSP panel with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the stamped layered In Good Taste DSP panel to a Basic Gray mat and then popped it on the front of a Gray Granite card base with dimensionals. I adhered the die cut tree to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the mountains, sun and tree on the bottom corner of a Very Vanilla panel using the same colors as the card front, except that I stamped each off first so it would be lighter. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set in Basic Gray ink in the top portion of the panel and added more birds next to it. I adhered a strip of the light wood grain DSP to the bottom of the panel and then adhered it to a Basic Gray mat. I adhered it to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I was pleased that the image stamped so well on the light wood grain DSP! And it was nice to use some old favorite stamp sets again – especially with some new DSP! I bet there are other oldies but goodies, even retired ones, that would go great with the In Good Taste designer series paper!
