Nailed It Birthday Card

Nailed It Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Making masculine cards is easy peasy with the Nailed It stamp set.  This one is for my son, Jonathan.  He's become quite the home improvement guy, so the tools were a natural choice for making his Birthday Card.  I so glad to add the Nailed It stamp set and the Build It Framelits to my arsenal of tools for making cards for the guys.

About Those Paper Scraps

Let your paper scraps be a happy accident.  I needed a finish to my Birthday Card and that's when  I spotted these two Night of Navy Card Stock scraps just waiting to be scooped up and put to use.  And the bonus...I was able to tuck my Teeny Tiny Wishes "Happy Birthday" neatly in the corner.

Coloring Tips

I stamped my tools with Mint Macaron and Night of Navy Ink. But here's the fun part, before the ink dried on each tool, I moved a bit of  the ink around with a blender pen.  Then, I went back with my blender pen and the other color and filled in where I wanted more color.

Gorgeous Grunge to the Rescue Again

Like the fun stamped background?  It's stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge and Nailed it stamp set.   The little screws and washers make cute accents.

Balloon Adventures

Love the full of Adventures stamp from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  Today, it looks fabulous embossed in white on Night of Navy.

Hello Friends,

According to the Urban Dictionary, Nailed it means Gets it spot-on, is correct, that's right, on the money, perfection.  I can think of so many reasons to send a Nailed it card.  Today, it's going to a team member.  What do you think?  Is the Nailed It Bundle only for masculine projects, or will it work for the girls too?

Robin's Card Tips

The Nailed It Stamp set practically begs to be paired with the Hardwood Background Stamp.  To make the woodgrain look, I stamped Crumb Cake ink onto Kraft Card Stock.  Tip:  When stamping with large stamps, such as background stamps, it's a bit easier to lay the stamp on its back, ink it up and the lay the card stock on top and rub.

I colored my hammers with the fabulous new Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens.  I used the Real Red and Basic Gray Pencils.

Nailed It Bundle

Love all the fun sentiments in the Nailed It stamp set.  And my mind is twirling with tool-tally terrific card and paper craft ideas.  That measuring stick die really rocks when teamed up with Silver Foil Paper.

Pop-Up Birthday Cards

Balloon Adventures Handmade Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

How many Birthday Cards do you send in a year?  Bet it's a lot, after all, everyone has a birthday.  We have 29 birthdays in our immediate family alone.  That's simply our kids, grandkids and parents.  Once you add in friends, co-workers and extended family, that's a lot of Birthday Cards.  No matter how many birthday you celebrate,  handmade Birthday Cards are best and Pop-Up Birthday Cards are even better.

I love the Balloon Adventures Bundle for making Birthday Cards.  It works well for both the guys and the gals.  It has loads of sentiment options and fun balloons and, best of all, it makes fabulous Pop-Up Birthday Cards.  Today's Balloon Adventure card is for my son, Ben, who turns 35 soon.  Guess I can no longer claim to be 39.  The math simply doesn't work.

Color Throwdown

I thought that this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors were perfect for a masculine card.  I used Tempting Turquoise, Mint Macaron, Kraft, Gold Foil and Early Espresso.
