A Good Man

Welcome to the Masculine Themed Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators featuring masculine themed creations. With June approaching and the Father’s Day observance approaching, a group of fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and I decided this is a perfect time to do a masculine themed blog hop to showcase our creative ideas geared towards men. We hope you like what you see and feel inspired to create a few masculine cards for giving as needed.

My card uses A Good Man cling stamp set and is an idea for Father’s Day. I incorporated the new Give It A Whirl dies found on pages 57 and 163 of the new annual catalog. It is so easy to miss if you aren’t paying attention. I love interactive cards so this is a must have for me. It includes several different windows to create for your wheel window cards.

I used two thick Very Vanilla cardstock for the wheel since it will be used often for turning the wheel. Using multipurpose liquid glue, I also layered the In the Wild” Designer Series Paper over a thick Very Vanilla cardstock used for the window to make it more sturdy as well. The wheel mechanism is held together by a black brad and I used one of the window excess pieces to adhere to the A2 (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) folded Cajun Craze card base with Stampin’ Seal. I pierced a hole through the extra window piece with the Take Your Pick Tool. Adding the extra piece between the wheel and the Cajun Craze cardstock allows the wheel to move much easier. I adhered the entire front panel to the Cajun Craze cardstock with Stampin’ Seal but you could also use foam strips or Stampin’ Dimenstionals.

Once assembled, I added one of the directional arrows from the dies to indicate which way to turn the wheel so the words are read in order as intended. The arrow is such a tiny piece. I used basic black cardstock, adhesive sheets, and the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine to cut the die. This made it make it easier to place on the card. I mounted the stamped gentleman on black cardstock with Stampin’ Seal and placed in front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For his skin color, I used the Bronze Stampin’ Blends marker. The inside sentiment comes from the Handsomely Suited cling stamp set. I have listed all the blends used on this card below along with all other supplies.

I sure hope this card is fun for the person receiving it. Below is the list of all the supplies I used to create this Father’s Day card. Included is the Well Suited Designer Series Paper used as our blog hop logo. This paper is featured in the current January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and will retire with the catalog at midnight mountain time on June 30, 2021. After the list of the other demonstrators participating in this blog hop, you will find the list of supplies.

Celebrating an Anniversary

Yesterday, 18 years ago, I joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator. Took a break and rejoined in July 2020. Time is recalculated per Stampin’ Up!, but not with me. Happy Anniversary to me! I have met so many people along the way, made some accomplishments through the company, and have traveled to places I probably wouldn’t have visited including Salt Lake City. I love to travel so that was good with me!

It just so happens that Stampin’ Up! has a join promotion going on right now but that offer ends on Monday, May 31, 2021 If you have considered purchasing the starter kit or becoming a demonstrator, whether to take advantage of the discounts and perks demonstrators get on a continual bases or to start a business, do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you have before taking the leap. You can be a happy shopper and be a demonstrator. No “work” is required. I joined as a happy shopper 18 years ago and as unsure as I was, I made the jump and have not regretted one moment of that decision. You can join through me at this link or contact me. Have a wonderful day!
