Welcome to May Stampin Friends Blog Hop. We create so many different cards for so many different reasons. But I feel like no matter the creation they definitely have more of a feminine touch this month I focus is celebrating men so our cards were featuring more masculine theme. And if your like me you will want to take a peek at each blog to get some ideas. I constantly struggle with creating the masculine cards. I usually make. Few at a time and that’s about it! I hope you visiting my page from Maureen Rauchfuss and after visiting my blog, hop over Tiziana Milano’s! The sure to leave a comment.

The card that I created uses strips of designer series paper to create a fun background. I chose the 6 x 6 paper stacks in neutral and regal. The colors are Blueberry Bushel, Early Espresso and Smoky Slate. The card base is Blueberry Bushel, with a 4x5 1/4 layer in Smoky Slate. Each DSP strip is cut 1x6 and laid out on top of a piece of Basic White that is 3 3/4x5. Once I was happy with the design I stuck the down to the white. And the. I turned it over and trimmed excess from the edges. See pictures below.
This pattern or style card is a great way to use up all those little scraps of DSP that you can’t bear to toss. I adhered the DSP layer onto the card base using dimensional‘s. For the stamped images I used that He’s All That stamp set with the coordinating dies called All That. I stamped both images in Blueberry Bushel. I used the coordinating die to cut out Blueberry Bushel circle and a smaller circle die I had on hand to cut out the greeting. For the Happy Father’s Day greeting I used a strip of Basic White 3/4” wide and then trimmed it down to side after I stamped. I wrapped one ended with some Smoky Slate Baker’s. Adhered the greetings down with dimensional’s and finish the card off with some Matt dots.
I love how this card came out and it’s definitely masculine! But it’s such a fun and simple card that can be easily adapted to any occasion.

I decided to make a Mother's Day card. The card style I chose is a a fun fold called Criss Cross Pocket. But I like to call it an Envelope Pocket card, because that is what it looks like to me! It's such an easy card. I used the soon to be retiring Hues of Happiness Suite to make the card.
Here's how I made it:
For the cardbase I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock and you need to cut two pieces 4 1/4 x 11 score the 11 side at 5 1/2. Then using your paper trimmer and cut one side of each panel on a diagonal from the top corner to the middle score at the bottom. When cutting the second piece of make sure the second sheet is cut so that it’s faces the other diagonal. Lay the pieces together so you have the 2 diagonal pieces lose.
For the DSP, you need to create 2 triangles to fit ontop of the diagonal sections.
DSP cut 4x5 1/4 on in half on the diagonal. Make sure you choose a DSP that has a pattern on both sides that you want to use. If you want the same pattern you will need to cut to pieces at 4x5 1/4 and cut 1 at a diagonal with the pattern you want to use facing up when you cut. Then the other 4x5 1/4 with the pattern you want to use facing upside down. This will allow you to have the same pattern cut opposite.
Adhere the DSP to the front flaps of the cardbase. Then add adhesive to the bottom of each diagonal to creat the pocket.
For the inside of the card inset you need Flirty Flamingo at 3 3/4 x 5 1/8 and then Basic White at 3 5/8x 5
The front of the card was so easy. Using the coordinating dies in the suite. Line up the flower dies with the flowers on the DSP and cut them out. I adhered them with dimensionals. And some glossy Gems.
I realized as I was typing this out that I did not take pictures of making the card. So I will update this and add some assembly pictures to make it easier to follow.
I hope you enjoyed the card I made for you today!

Stepping It Up: Conversation Bubbles
Need fun card ideas for your friends or family? Something you could step up for more advanced look? Our playful Conversation Bubbles Bundle step-ups might be just the thing! The Conversation Bubbles stamp set is going to retire and is on saw now!!! So get it before it’s gone!!!!
To make the casual card, simply stamp the solid thought bubbles in your choice of ink (for this card, we used Jet Black StāzOn, Blushing Bride, and Polished Pink). After the ink is completely dry, stamp the sentiment or image inside the thought bubble with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle on some white embossing powder, shake off the excess, then heat set.
PS We stamped the remaining thought bubbles in Parakeet Party and Jet Black StāzOn. So cute!
To make the background layer for the avid card, use the emboss-resist technique! First, stamp and heat emboss the thought bubbles using white embossing powder; then, use a Blending Brush to add ink over the top. To capture the ombre effect, apply the color in darker and darker layers, saving the deepest application of color for the bottom of the card. To remove the excess ink from the embossed areas, use a dry cloth.
For our artfully avid version, take the ink blending up a notch by using Masking Paper and Blending Brushes to create a border around the outside edges. After inking and removing the Masking Paper strips, you’ll have a nice, crisp border. To make this card different from the avid sample, use the Blending Brushes to add even more ink and deepen the color as much as you can while retaining the ombre look. Add an ink splatter to finish. Gorgeous!

I chose a Fun Fold for my card using the Sun Prints DSP. This designer paper is so pretty it features a fern and botanical imagery with a mix of blue and with colors on one side and Gray Granite and white on the other side I thought it was perfect to use for a monochromatic theme.
To make the card, you need:
Cardstock - I used Night of Navy
Basic white and pieces for stamping.
Circle punches or dies
Night of Navy in and Stampin Blends
Cardbase 5 1/2x9 - on the 9" side score at 4 1/4 and 7 1/4 and piece to punch circle layer
Basic White 4 x 5 1/4, I used Stitched Circle and piece that was 3/4 x 3 for the greeting
DSP 2 at 1 1/4 x 4 1/4, 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 and 2 3/4x 4 1/4
Fold the cardbase in half on the 4 1/4 score line and then fold back on the 7 1/4 score line. Stamp the floral images in Night of Navy onto the Basic White Layer. Stamp the greeting on the 3/4 strip,and stamp the flower on the circle. Add the Basic White layer to the inside of the card. Take the 2 - 1 1/4 adhere on to the section on the cardfront - left side. And the the other one on the inside to the right edge of the Basic White. Adhere the 1 3/4 piece to the top piece that is folded over. The 2 3/4 piece goes on the inside section. See picture below.
I colored the flowers using my Night of Navy blends and layered onto the Night of Navy Circle. Attached to the card front with dimensionals. Then I added the greeting with dimensionals over the center of the circle. I finish it off with Rhinestones, that I colored using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin Blends.
I hope you enjoy the card that I made for this month's blog hop.
