True Gentleman

Truly-Tailored-1---Close-UP

Today I am sharing with you our 2nd card created last Friday using the True Gentleman Suite from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue, Page 44.  I am actually loving the colours & design of the True Gentleman DSP.  Perfect for the males but which could also be used for females.

To create our shapes, we punched pieces of the DSP using the Tailored Tag Punch before layering them onto a piece of Night of Navy leaving a small amount showing aroundTruly-Tailored-1---Inside shapes.

The sentiment was coloured with the Chocolate Chip & Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers before stamping direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla.

A piece of Linen Thread was threaded threw a button from the True Gentleman Button Pack & added to the sentiment with a Mini Glue Dot.

True Gentleman

Truly-Tailored---Close-Up

G’Day Stampers,

I’m sharing with you one of the cards we created in our class last Friday.  We used the True Gentleman Suite, Page 44 & 45 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  It includes the Truly Tailored Stamp Set & Tailored Tag Punch which is also available as a Bundle, True Gentleman Buttons, True Gentleman DSP & the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon.  You mayTruly-Tailored---Inside recognize the card from the same page.

During the Christmas/New Break I managed to plan & create all my classes up until mid-May 2018 which I am happy about.  In fact, I have had to stop myself as the new Catalogue will be out in June & of course we will want to play with new product.

Truly Tailored

Truly-Tailored-Launch---Clo

You saw photos of my Launch Display a couple of days ago so today I am sharing a quick make & take we created on the day using product from the “True Gentleman” Suite, Page 44 of the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.  I’ve used different elements of the Suite – Truly Tailored Stamp Set, True Gentleman DSP, Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon & the Tailored Tag Punch.

You may recognize the design as I’ve case’d it from the sample in the Catalogue except I’ve turned it into a greeting card using the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.

I cut a piece of the Night of Navy Ribbon, adhered it across the middle of the DSP, tucking the ends behind.  I cut the ends of a piece of Emerald Envy CS into a banner shape before adhering to the top of the Ribbon.  You could also use the Banner Triple Punch to do this.

The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS in Night of Navy before being punched with the Tailored Tag Punch & adhered to the top of the Emerald Envy Banner.

Five minutes later you have yourself the perfect card for the male in your life.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Today is Your Day

True-Gentleman-Suite---Clos

G’Day Stampers,

I am having a little trouble getting back into blogging at the moment so fingers crossed all will be back to normal.

I’m sharing with you one of the new suites from the 2018 Occasions CatalogueTrue Gentleman Suite.  Love it!  Mind you, I was in 2 minds as to whether I would purchase it but as usual once in my hands, it is totally different.  Lots of ideas.  I am actually in the middle of planning a class around it.

I wanted to create a very quick simple card but one with a bit of a wow factor showcasing the lovely DSP from True Gentleman DSP.  I took my inspiration from the Catalogue.January

Lovely as a Tree

Realising that I no longer have many stamp sets for males, I went straight for my back up set – “Lovely as a Tree“.  It has been sooooooo long since I’ve had a play with this set that I thought it would be Lovely-as-a-Tree---Close-Up great to showcase at our “Cards @ Toogoom” class last Friday week.

As you know this is one of the longest sets available in the Catalogue.

I did start to case the card from the Annual Catalogue, Page 137, but as usual it sort of went off on its own.

The Old Olive has been embossed with the Woodland EF (which you can’t see very clearly but it does make the card) before adding to a piece of Very Vanilla, a piece of Solid Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine wrapped around the top part before being adhered to the Base Card – Chocolate Chip.

Lovely-as-a-Tree---InsideThe image has been stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink & then coloured & blended using the Watercolour Pencils before being die cut & layered onto a scallop circle & adhered to the Card Front.

For the inside I stamped the same image in Chocolate Chip Ink direct onto a piece of Very Vanilla before adhering to the Old Olive Base Card.

255. Brother – Lovely as a Tree

Lovely-as-a-Tree

Happy Birthday

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to create a card for a friend of mine who turned 89, 2 weeks ago.  We all call him “Pop” & my dog Belle, just loves going down to their place for 20170605_095253blog-insidevisits but I really think it is the treats they give her.  I often come home alone as Belle is happy sitting on the mat at their feet & in the company of their little dog, Friday.

I did case this card off Pinterest that I had seen a little time ago & loved the simple easy design of the card.  Thank you so much for your inspiration.  It suits Pop as he is always out in the garden or shed playing & building stuff, with Belle always at his heels.

I stamped the images onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Card with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink & die cut them using the matching “Build It” Framelits by running through the Big Shot.

The background from the stamp Set “Awesomely Artistic” was stamped direct onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Marina Mist Ink while the small accessories were all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The card was then layered onto a piece of Marina Mist & then to the Base Card – Night of Navy.

The tools were coloured & blended with Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Smokey Slate & Basic Grey Inks using a Blender Pen before being adhered the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Vicky
