Tremendous Tuesday- Masculine Card

Hello Friends! Here’s my card for Tremendous Tuesdays here on PaperDreams.

This card uses a sketch that I’ve been using for years- it’s my “go to” sketch.

One third in one paper, two thirds in another paper. A strip between the two to “hide” the connection & and an element. The strip in between could be narrow or wide paper; it could be ribbon or twine; or even an embossed or die cut strip. The element could be an image or a sentiment.

I hope you like it! Come back on Friday for another card using this sketch.

Supplies: All SU
Card-stock; Thick Very Vanilla, Early Espresso.
DSP:  Cinnamon Cider In-Color, In Good Taste
Stamps: Tasteful Touches
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessories: Tasteful Labels dies, In Good Taste elements

In Color Thanks

Hi friends! Thanks for jumping over to visit my blog and card today.
I’m sharing a creation I made for the Freshly Made Sketch for the week;
To make the circle, I pieced together new in-color DSP strips & cut using a circle die. I pieced together another set of strips & pieced two of the halves together in opposing directions on a layer of white card stock. The Cinnamon Cider card stock was embossed with the new Tasteful Textures embossing folder.
I just love this sketch, don’t you? Substitute the circle with a different object & you’ve got an entirely different look. Take a peek at the gallery for the FMS & you’ll see a wide variety of cards.
Thanks again for looking!
All SU Supplies:
Card stock: Bumblebee, Just Jade, Cinnamon Cider
DSP:  In Color
Stamps: Well Said
Accessories: Layering Circles dies, Classic Label punch; Tasteful Textiles EF, In Color Enamel Dots.

Birds and Branches Fun Fold

Hi friends!
I created this card as a Make 'n Take for the 2020 VIP Conference At The Gathering Place with my friends Sally and Kim. It's a z-fold card.

I used the Bird and Branches bundle in the new 2020-2021 annual Stampin' UP catalog. If you haven't check it out, be sure to have a look on page 120 for the stamp set and page 174 for the dies. The bird dies have such detail, & I love the leaf circle die, but my favorite is the edge die. It makes a real statement & matches the circle and branched leaves.
So many fun new things in this catalog! What's your favorite new thing?
