Mustache Card

Today I'm sharing another of the handmade cards from my upcoming Stamp a Stack card-making class.  I like to include at least one masculine card in my all-occasion card classes, and the Mustache Framelits Die makes a quick and easy card happen..quickly and easily!  This mustache card can be used for birthdays, Father's Day, congratulations for a job promotion or graduation...lots of occasions.  That is known as versatility:)

My youngest son wears a mustache, so this framelit is perfect for him!  But honestly, mustache images are just fun to use for any masculine project.  And although you don't see the Big On You stamp set in the photo even though it's in my Stampin' Up! supplies list, we use it on the inside of the card.

Mustache Card

 Please note that the following supplies used in this masculine card will NOT be available after June 2nd:

  • @So Social stamp set (wood and clear mount)
  • Mustache Framelits Die
  • Adventure Bound DSP stack 
  • Modern Label Punch

Indescribable Gift

I confess to having severely neglected my blog over the past year and a half in order to devote more time to my face to face events.  But I've had a hankering to get back to blogging, so here goes.  I plan a Retiring List blitz to end the month strong and then begin a blogging schedule.  I'll let you know my plans as they unfold.

I love the blossom image in Indescribable Gift as well as the lovely sentiments in this rubberstamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  This was our project at this month's Sip & Stamp, my monthly free class at the Craftiques Mall.

Sadly, Indescribable Gift rubberstamp set is retiring forever and will no longer be available after June 2nd.  I chose this stamp set as well as the also retiring Lots of Thanks for this elegant, quick and easy card.

Indescribable Gift

Although these flower blossoms are perfect for watercoloring, I wanted a quick and easy card, so sponging was my ticket to quick color with plenty of loveliness.  Although this is a quick and easy card, it doesn't look like it!  

The full list of Stampin' Up! supplies is below, and you can click on any item and be transported to my online store where you may browse/shop to your heart's content.  Please note the following items are retiring and no longer available after June 2:

  • Indescribable Gift
  • Lots of Thanks
  • Modern Label Punch
