World’s Greatest!

Father's Day

The man from the Guy Greeting Clear Mount Stamp Set isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!  He’ll keep his presence in the catalog and it makes me happy!  It’s hard enough to find masculine stamp sets and this one is a real gem.  It reminds me of my dad (LOL)…he used to lift weights and has always stressed a healthy lifestyle.

Maggie Made Tips:

  • Snip It: I don’t always like stamping on white card stock in rectangular shapes, so I snip the image.  I adhere Stampin’ Dimensionals on the reverse to raise it off the Designer Series Paper.
  • Recycle: I took the card base that had been assembled a while ago and I can’t remember when I put it together.  But I know this, it’s no longer available!  What was I thinking, ugh…but no worries, the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack (still available) has the diagonal black lines.
  • “Dad or Father” Not Needed:  Is it obvious the card is for Father’s Day if I had not written Father’s Day on the post?  I purposely left those words out of the sentiment.  Why? Because I’ll be sending it to all the men in my family who are dad’s.
  • Banner. The banner was made with the new Duet Banner Punch. The sentiment was stamped with Real Red on Whisper White card-stock and punched, a second punched piece was used to layer it.  I snipped the stamped piece so that it would fit on the banner.

Thank you so much for checking out the card of the day.  Have a great weekend and take some time out to remember those who have given the Ultimate Sacrifice for our Freedom.  God Bless America!

Pals Paper Arts Many Thanks

Thanks

I love Pals Paper Arts Thursday!  Have you seen the new Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper!?  Every single sheet is beyond gorgeous and I can’t wait for you to see all of them.

Pals Paper Arts

Today’s Pals Paper Arts layout is brought to you by the wonderfully talented Nicole Watt and I’d love to see what you enter.

Maggie Made Tips:

  • Layers: When using a designer series paper with a white background I like to layer it with little pop of color.  I think the Melon Mambo card-stock creates the perfect pop don’t you think?
  • Hearts Background:  I didn’t want the sentiment to have too much of a white background, so I stamped little hearts with the heart inside the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set in Blushing Bride ink.
  • Sequin Embellishments:  When I use sequin’s on a card I always use three small pieces.  Why three?  Simply because it’s my favorite number.  Everything happens to me in threes…LOL.  You can still get some of the Metallics Sequin too!  It lasts forever…literally!

Here is where I say THANK YOU for stopping by.  I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d still be posting and making cards for my blog after almost five years.

It’s All About Flowers at the SIP with #49

Enjoy the Little Things

The other day when I initially viewed the Chewbacca Mom viral video I laughed so hard (I cried).  As the video played I immediately thought of his stamp set at the end of her video.  She said it was the simple joys and we should all truly “Enjoy the Little Things” in life.  Her laughter was contagious and so is card-making. =)

Maggie’s Made Tips:

  • Swirly Scribbles New Die-Cuts: You’re going to be in heaven with all the new die-cuts in the new catalog. I had to purchase this one because it has so many uses…this is just one and you are going to squirm when you see the others.
  • Layering Love Clear Stamp Set:  All you have to do to see the other stamps in the set is click the link!!!  OMG! I love that Stampin’ Up! now has these fonts in their inventory.  I show only the clear stamp sets because that is my preference.  If you love wood then you can see it here.
  • Cardstock.  I usually do not list the colors because in all honesty you can choose whatever are your favorite colors.  But if you’d like me to start adding the links to the card stock please send me a message.
