Card - Masculine

Color Fusers Blog Hop July 2020

Color Fusers July 2020 using the Beautiful World bundle.



Thank you for joining us today for another Color Fusers Blog Hop.  Each month we bring a color challenge to you by creating a card using the same colors.  Visit the whole team to see some awesome projects in a fun color combination.



Color Fusers July Color Challenge:  Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point


This month I chose to create using he World of Beauty stamp set and coordinating World Map dies.  What a fun set!  Since the color combination creates an unexpected look for the theme of these stamps and dies, I pulled in extra fun with polka dots and bows.


I created the background by sponging ink onto a polka dot Basic Patterns Decorative Masks.



Add interest by using masks to create detailed background layers.



The sentiment was cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels die set.  I have used this set on so many of my projects lately, and it has fallen into the 'must have' category.  It has quickly become my favorite label set of all time for good reason!  With so many different shapes and sizes, it works for just about every single project.  Plus, there is beautiful stitching and decorative edges on each die, adding just the right amount of detail.



The Tasteful Labels dies are perfect for just about every project!


And it was fun creating detail to the continents with Shimmery Crystal Effects.



Shimmery Crystal Effects creates fun accents!


The World Map die set has a cool embossing die included.  Look at the detail on the banner layered under the sentiment.  Isn't that cool?



The World Map dies in the Beautiful World Bundle have some really neat specialty dies!


To create this card:

  • Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" Shimmery White cardstock base, scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" background layer in Coastal Cabana
  • Cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" Shimmery White cardstock front layer
  • Cut a 1" x 3 1/2" strip of Coastal Cabana for an accent piece
  • Cut a 1/2" x 2 3/4" strip of Pacific Point for an accent piece

Sponge polka dots onto shimmery white layer in Calypso Coral ink, using a Basic Patterns mask.  Adhere to Coastal Cabana layer then to card front with dimensionals.  Stamp globe in Coastal Cabana ink and the sentiment and globe stand in Pacific Point ink, all on Shimmery White cardstock.  Die cut.  Emboss the strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the calligraphy die from the World Map die set.  Layer the Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana strips, and adhere behind sentiment.  Adhere this to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere globe and globe stand to card front using dimensionals.  Color Basic Pearls with Blends marker, and embellish card as desired.  Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to continents or other areas of the card as desired.  Color white ribbon in Light Calypso Coral Blends marker, tie a bow, and adhere to card front.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Blog Hop

Welcome back!  Today I am sharing another project using the really fun High Tide stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  

  High Tide Stamp Set and Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack


I belong to the Luv 2 Stamp Group as my Stampin' Up! family.  It is full of fun, creative people that enjoy creating and sharing together.  We have group meetings, and because we are spread all over the US, we meet online to share.  These events are fun!  I was fortunate to not only share this project with the group during our recent event, but also at Stampin' Up! On Stage a few months ago as it's debut. You may remember this sneak peak, or perhaps this one, which I blogged about back in December, using this set as well.  I am just sayin', this set is really fun to create with!  Once I started working with it, the projects came together in a snap!

This card is a perfect masculine birthday, congratulations, or thinking of you card. Those can be hard to come by!  It is simple stamping, and layered nicely using this awesome stripe from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack.  


To Recreate this Card

Start with a card base of Basic Gray cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/5".  Add a layer of Basic Gray diagonal stripe designer series paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack, cut to 3 3/4" x 5", and set aside.  Next, stamp the lighthouse in Real Red ink on a 2 5/8" x 3 7/8" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The sand was created using Crumb Cake ink, then some grass in Wild Wasabi.  Adhere the lighthouse scene to a 2 3/4" x 4" piece of Basic Gray cardstock.  I added Linen Thread to the top of this layer, and tied in a knot.  Adhere the lighthouse layer to your cardbase with dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped my sentiment, from the Sunburst Sayings stamp set, in Basic Black ink, on a 3/8" strip of Whisper White, than cut the ends banner style, and adhered over the bottom of the card.  That's it, hope you like it!
