Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a masculine birthday card made with the fun Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You bundle. This is such a fun set and what could be more perfect for a hot summer afternoon than a cold brew. You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.
We have a sketch challenge this week and here is the pretty sketch we are using:
I adhered a strip of Cajun Craze striped He’s the Man designer series paper to a checkered Sahara Sand Panel of the DSP. I adhered a strip of Crushed Curry Rustic Harvest DSP to the panel before adhering it to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Sahara Sand card base. I cut a vellum panel with the largest circle from the layering circles dies and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal.
I stamped the glass, mug and jug from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the glass insert in So Saffron and the mug insert in Crushed Curry and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I colored the jug with the SU004 Stampin’ Blend from the Naturals blends series and cut it out with the coordinating dies. I covered the die cuts with Versamark ink directly from the pad and sprinkled them with clear embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny.
I adhered the jug to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and adhered the glass and mug with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Basic White. I trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered it with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished the card front with three black dots.
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the new Very Best Occasions cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bubbles from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You stamp set in So Saffron several times on the side. I cut the hops die from Parakeet Party and the leaves from Pear Pizzazz and adhered them over the fizz. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of He’s The Man DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I love craft breweries and the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You bundle is perfect for beer themed cards. It’s great to have coordinating dies and I love the effect of the clear embossing powder over die cuts – it makes them look like glass! And if you don’t care for beer, fill your mug with a soda or lemonade instead and you’ll still quenched this hot summer!
