Manly Monday with Nature’s Harvest

Can you believe how fast Mondays come round?

My card today is one I created for a challenge in a FB Group – CASE-ing Tuesday

This time it was the 2021 July-December Catalogue, P30.

I decided to try & create a male card, although it could be for male or female.

I’ve used the lovely Harvest Meadow DSP for my strips.  They were adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla & then to a Misty Moonlight Base Card.A piece of the same DSP was chopped before being adhered over the top of the strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The reeds were die cut with the Harvest Dies in Misty Moonlight prior to being adhered to the DSP panel.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, stamped in Bumblebee Ink onto Very Vanilla, trimmed back to size & shape & adhere to the card front with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Manly Monday with Friends are like Seashells

G’Day Friends,

Once again, its time for Manly Monday!

Today I have something a little different to share with you in that I pulled the Friends are like Seashells Stamp Set off my shelf.  Sad to say, this lovely stamp has not been used in sometime.

So now I have my Stamp Set, its Manly Monday, now to decide on the colours which is where Very Vanilla comes into play.

I have the both Cardstock & Stamp Set so its time to bring in colours that have not seen the light of day for sometime.  Out pops Cinnamon Cider along with Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake.  I’m not keen on Cinnamon Cider, Cherry Cobbler I will play with but Crumb Cake, now that is a keeper.  Well, that I have 1 colour that I love lol, I don’t want to make it too hard for myself.

Where to from here?  “Keep it simple”, I keep telling myself which is exactly what I think I’ve done.

The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set, stamped direct onto the Very Vanilla in Cinnamon Cider Ink prior to being adhered to a Cinnamon Cider Base Card.

The shell was stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, again on Very Vanilla, die cut with the Seaside Seashells Dies & embossed with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

The Cherry Cobbler DSP has been adhered to a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock, then to Very Vanilla with Stampin’ Dimensionals & finally to the Cinnamon Cinder Base Card.

Happiest of Birthdays

G’Day Friends,

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  It is always very much appreciated.

It’s Monday & that means its Manly Monday!  This time round I decided to recreate a card that popped up in my Pinterest Feed.  It is one that I created last year during Sale-a-Bration, so I thought why not try & re-create it & do it for the males.

You can see the original card HERE if you wish.  There is also a PDF Tutorial that you are able to download.

I just changed out the colours to Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, Smokey Slate & Basic White.

The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set while the images are from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set.

Looks totally different, don’t you think?

In fact I enjoyed creating this card again that I may do a few more this way so be on the lookout for more “throwbacks”.

Manly Monday

G’Day Friends,

I do hope you have all had a lovely weekend.

We had a little much needed rain during the night & by all accounts it could be a wet week but I don’t mind as we need the rain deparately.

It’s Monday & that means Manly Monday.  I have had an idea in my head for sometime but that went out the window  when I saw this card on Pinterest.  Mine is a little different but using still using the Tailored Tag Punch in the same way.

I opted to go for Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Shaded Spruce & Crushed Curry.  They DSP is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Pack.  The colours are way out of my comfort zone but perfect for the males.

The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set.  I must admit I seem to be using this set more & more all the time – perfect for all occasions!The shapes have been punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.  A little different but I am loving the look of the layering.

To complete the card I tied a small double bow with Linen Thread & adhered it to the Very Vanilla shape with a Mini Glue Dot.

This card could also be used for any occasions including female.  All you have to do is change out the colours & add Ribbon in lieu of the Linen Thread.

Forever Fern

G’Day Friends,

I’m still trying to play catch up since my blog update.  No too many more to do.

My card is one I did for Many Monday this week & th eone I sent to my Dad who happens to turn 90 this month.  He still rdes his bike, walks for miles each day, goes to the gym every other day,plays 8 Ball & rests on Saturdays as those days are for his races.

The DSP is from the Pansy Petals DSP which I am loving more each time I play with it, especially the reserve sides.  Don’t you love it when our reserve sides can be used for all occasions?

I’ve teamed up the colours of Evening Evergreen, Soft Sea Foam & Very Vanilla Cardstocks.  The sentiment is from the Best Year Stamp Set while the image from Forever Fern Stamp Set was stamped onto Very Vanilla Cardstock die cut with the matching Forever Flourishing Dies before being adhered to the left side of the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.The card was finished off with a piece of Very Vanilla Twine which was left over from a Kit yonks ago & sitting around to be used on the perfect project.  I added a couple of 2021-2023 In Colour Evening Evergreen Jewels to complete the card.

Manly Monday & In Good Taste DSP

G’Day Friends,

You may notice over the next few days a repeat of a couple of previous posts.  My blog has been updated meaning that I have lost the last few posts.  Yes, only a couple more posts to redo before I am caught up!

This card was created for our #WCMD2021 Make n Take in our World Card Making Group. You are able to join us if you wish.

I wanted to show how to create a card showing both sides of the very versatile In Good Taste DSP which is my go to Paper especially if I want to create for the males.

I’ve used the matching Tasteful Touches Stamp Set – perfect for both male & female – along with the Tasteful Lables Dies to create the front of my card.

The feather was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink fussy cut & adhere to the bottom of the die cut shape.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy Ink too.

The card was completed with a small Basic White bow from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack adhered to the feather & a couple of Pearls randomly adhered to the die cut shape.

This card is perfect for either male or female.

Manly Monday with Biggest Wish

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday & that means it is Manly Monday where I share with you a project created especially for the males in our lives.

I’ve been wanting to use the Stitched Triangle Dies for some time now & always seemed to find an excuse until I saw this card on Pinterest.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  It has now opened up so many ideas & possibilities.

I then decided to go with colours that were a little out of my comfort zone – So Saffron & Garden Green.  Of course, I had to toss in Early Espresso along with Very Vanilla.

The DSP is the Packs of 6 x 6Subtles, Neutrals & Regals.  Don’t you just love how well they go together?

The sentiment is from Biggest Wish Stamp Set, stamped onto Very Vanilla in So Saffron & Early Espresso Inks.

The shapes have been die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!
