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.

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 with Sailing Home

G’Day Friends,

Today is Monday & I get to share with you a card created for the males that I created on Saturday during our World Card Making Day – #WCMD2021!  It was such a fun day but of course, the fun is still happening as we are all busy trying to create & catch up with or Make n Takes.

I decided to go with an one of my favourites – Sailing Home Stamp Set along with the Smooth Sailing Dies.  The colours are Balmy Blue, Basic White & Night of Navy.  Can’t go wrong with them, right?  The DSP is the Subtles 6 x 6 Pack.

It’s simple card but one that shows you a different way of chopping your DSP.

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

Happy Stamping!

 

Manly Monday with Textures & Frames

G’Day Friends,

It’s been a little while since my last blog post but I have been posting on my FB Page.

It’s Monday which means its Manly Monday where I get to create a project just for the males in our lives.

I received my FREE Textures & Frames Stamp Set the other day & have been dying to bust it open & start playing.  I have lots of lovely creations to share with you this week with this particular Stamp Set.

I’ve used Night of Navy, Merry Merlot & Smokey Slate Inks.  The Cardstock is Very Vanilla, Merry Merlot & Night of Navy.

This Stamp Set calls for some quick & easy cards.  I can also see it creating lots of lovely scrapbook pages.

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

Happy Stamping!

Beautifully Penned DSP

G’Day Stampers,

Thank you for dropping by!

Today is Monday & that means it is time for Manly Monday where I get to share with you a project I’ve created mainly for the fellas.

I’ve used the Beautifully Penned DSP today from Sale-A-Bration & wanted to share that it can be used for both female & male.  Father’s Day is fast approaching in Australia & I wanted to create something for my Dad so that I could get it away in the mail in time for his day.

This lovely paper can be yours for FREE when spending $90 or more.  Check it out here.

The leaf has been die cut from Basic Black Cardstock with the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I tied a small bow with White Baker’s Twine before adhering to the stem of the leaf with a Mini Glue Dot.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever & was stamped onto a piece of Basic White in Evening Evergreen Ink & adhered to the inside the Base Card allowing it to show through the front.

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

Happy Stamping!

Best Year Ever

G’Day Friends,

Thank you for dropping by!

This week I want to start a day each week where I will share with you a project created especially for the males.  Some of us have a hard time creating for the male.  I do hope you will join me & enjoy creating along with me.

Today is one that is fairly easy & simple but one that I am more than happy with.  PLUS it uses the FREE DSP from Sale-a-Bration – Peaceful Prints.  Do you recognise it?

A piece of the DSP has been randomly chopped into 3 pieces before being adhered to a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock, then to a piece of Basic White & finally to a Basic Black Base Card.

The sentiment is from Best Year Ever Stamp Set, stamped onto a die cut shape in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, adhered to a Basic Black die cut shape with Adhesive & then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Both the shapes have been die cut with the fantastic Tasteful Labels Dies.

Male cards do not have to be hard, they can be as simple & easy as you like AND still look lovely.Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Happy Stamping!

Tasteful Touches

G’Day Friends,

Thanks so much for popping in today.  It is very much appreciated.

I thought I would share a card I created sometime ago but one that I hadn’t posted using the lovely Tasteful Touches Stamp Set, along with the In Good Taste DSP & the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  All of which I am so happy are in the current Annual Catalogue.

A piece of Basic White was embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, adhered to a layer of Smokey Slate Cardstock & then to a Night of Navy Base Card.

A piece of Basic White was stamped with the feather from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink, a piece of Ribbon (retired) wrapped around the bottom part & a bow tidedThis panel was then adhered to the piece of DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped onto scrap Basic White in Night of Navy Ink, fussy cut & adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

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

Happy Stamping!
