My Cary Grant Card

Let me explain.

I have hosted an All About Men Stamp Camp for at least 10 years. At these events, I have usually shared 4 cards for men of different ages. I’d include a baby card or a little boy card, a teenager card, a masculine birthday card, and a valentine. This year, I created a graphic to advertise the stamp camp, and my inspiration was Cary Grant, the most virile, suave man who came to mind. Here is the graphic:

Well, this year, that graphic inspired me to create cards for not men of all YEARS, but men of all TYPES.  So with that inspiration, the cards shared at my event included a punch valentine card for those crafty/tool-type men, a thinking of you card for an outdoorsy man, a birthday card for a beach-loving man, and another birthday card for  the suave/sophisticated man (aka Cary Grant).

Now with that explanation, I suppose you want to see my Cary Grant card.  Here it is:

Simple, elegant, classy – almost like a tuxedo.  Music From the Heart stamp set and the Bee DSP were used on this card.  Who’s ready for a glass of champagne and some music on the hi-fi?

Birthday Beer Card for Mike

My son, Mike, is celebrating his 21st birthday today. At a recent stamp camp, I shared this card with my stampers.

My stampers really loved the fun card and the Bermuda Bay/Crumb Cake/Chocolate Chip color combination.  Our new Bubble Over stamp set is in the Occasions mini catalog.  You can create beer bottles or soda bottles in two different sizes and use framelits so you don’t need to fussy cut!

There is coordinating Designer Series Paper you can get for free during Sale-A-Bration!  Just spend $50 to get your free pack!

Happy birthday, Mike!  Can’t wait to share a cold one with you!

Birthday Blowout Sale-A-Bration Birthday Card

Every year I host a Birthday Blowout stamp camp.  My stampers make cards for women, men, and kids.  The easy coloring for the Big Day stamp set makes it perfect to create many cards in a short amount of time.  Here is the card we made:

The large polka dot embossing folder and the DSP polka dots are so much fun!

I used Always Artichoke ink on one of the Texturz plates (Perfect Details).  I added small pearls on the right side.  The coloring of the flowers is done with markers.
