I’m so excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight event for September 2019. The theme is Encouragement.

This card is for my dad. When I was growing up, we spent a lot of time in a beautiful, relaxing location just like this. I hope this card reminds him of those good memories we built together!

I used a few different stamps to create my card. The Birch background stamp is one of my recent favourites – it’s so quick and easy to create a striking background on any project. Then I created the lakeside scene using the Waterfront stamp set. This is such a beautifully versatile stamp set, where you can create any scene you can imagine! Finally, I added an image from A Good Man, coloured in with my Blends markers and then cut out to attach to the card.

I hope you like my project and Vote for my card! You can do so here:


At the end of the voting the top ten winners will get the chance to be part of an international blog hop that will happen at the end of September. I would love to take part in the hop, so I would really appreciate it if you would visit the gallery and vote for my card. Have a look at all the amazing creations in the gallery, because you’ll get to vote for your favourite five projects. I hope mine is one of them!

I have a whole collection of masculine cards to share with you today, great for Father’s Day, masculine birthdays, or other occasions for the dudes in your life. Bonus tutorial included for the diagonal easel card I posted recently!

The first card uses the Tailored Tag punch, as well as the True Gentleman DSP and Truly Tailored stamp set. The punch is still current, though the paper and stamp set have retired. You can see how easy it is to make a great card with this fun punch design! I will definitely have more uses for this punch in my craft studio.

I used the same stamp set and paper to create this dapper double-z fold card! I just never get sick of this fold and the awesome variations it offers.

The Dad Jokes stamp set is one I just had to buy, as my husband can’t resist making jokes like this …. the bigger the groan, the better! Though the stamp set is now retired, I think I’ll be hanging on to the stamps and continuing to create with them! It also uses the Simple Stripes embossing folder, which is one of my new favourites!

Here’s a fantastic masculine card that works for a variety of occasions, using the stunning Waterfront stamp set. I used the chair die cut from the Seasonal Layers set, and one of my layering squares to cut out the window frame. “Celebrate” is from the terrific new Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, which has already gotten a lot of use in my studio! With so much variety and versatility, it’s a terrific set to have on hand.

And now, as promised, a tutorial! You might remember I posted a photo of this card when I used it as a swap card for my May team meeting. Here’s how you can make your own.

The base for this card is 4 x 8″, scored at 4″ and scored diagonally on the front flap from centre bottom to top left.

Depending on what colour card base you use, you may also need a white or vanilla insert of 4 x 4″ to write your sentiment.

For the front of the card, start with a 4 x 5.25″ piece of cardstock and decorate as desired.

Your final touch will be a stamped and punched piece that is attached to the base with dimensionals, to hold your easel open.

I hope you like the tutorial! Leave me a comment with your recent creations!

Happy Stampin’, and Happy Father’s Day to the dads in your life!

Lately I’ve been playing with the Waterfront stamp set and thoroughly enjoying its versatility. I wanted to showcase this set at one of my upcoming home parties, so I CASE’d this design from Ellen Vargo. I just love the way she used the Naturally Eclectic paper as a backdrop for the card. And as I stamped, I realized (perhaps) why she’d done it that way: once I had the Designer Series Paper to guide me, it was easy to choose the right ink colours to stamp my landscape. I am so pleased with the result, and can’t wait to share this with the party guests later this month!What other Designer Series Paper do you think would make a good backdrop for this stamp set? Comment below and let me know!

Happy Stampin’!
