CELEBRATING THE MEN IN OUR LIVES

Well Crafters, it is almost June!  Where does the time go?  For our June Stamp Camp, we are going to make “manly” cards.  So many times, we make our celebratory cards with flowers and lots of pretty images.  My stereotypical masculine card tends to be bold with darker colors.  This first card is definitely “manly.”

2016.05.23 Globe CardI’ve entitled this card “Going Places.”  There is a strip of the Going Places DSP stack on the front cover.  The Early Espresso card has a Crumb Cake front  embossed with the new World Traveler Embossing Folder and sponged with either Crumb Cake ink or a retired brown chalk.  The Happy Father’s Day card was sponged with ink and the Happy Birthday version received chalk.  The chalk can be erased but the Crumb Cake sponging gives a richer color.  You can choose either method.  The compass image is from the Going Global set and is stamped with Jet Black StazOn, die cut and centered on a die cut Basic Black circle.  The compass centers feature a small glittery star or a Crumb Cake Candy Dot.  The sentiment is stamped in black on Very Vanilla, die cut , sponged with Crumb Cake and layered on a 3/8” ribbon.

To me, this is a great “manly” card and one of four we will be making at our June Stamp Camp.  Dates and times for  the June Camp:  Thursday, June 2 from 12 Noon to 9 PM; Friday, June 3 from 2 – 9 PM; and Saturday, June 4 from 9 AM to 4 PM.  You can come when it is convenient for your schedule.  The cost remains $12 and covers all supplies.  Water and soda pop are always available as a dehydrated crafter is a sad crafter!  All you need to provide is yourself!

The 2016-17 Stampin Up Catalogs have arrived and you can pick up yours when you come.  The catalogs are provided at no charge.  Don’t forget to check the list of retiring items as some are marked down as low as 50%.  When these items are gone – they won’t return.  Check out the retiring items at Retiring SU Products

Check back soon for another “manly” blog.  I hope to see you for June Stamp Camp.  It is helpful if you can let me know if you plan on coming or would like a kit, but this is not required.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.

Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630/759-3089 – (c)630/965-1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
