It's a Man Thing Blog Hop

It's a Man Thing Blog Hop!  Welcome to our blog hop and enjoy seeing the new stamp sets and accessories from Stampin' Up.  Below is my card share.  Hope you like it.  After reading about it be sure to click on the next button to view the other blogs.

The men sometimes get overlooked with all our flower cards and so this blog is all about the 'males', especially those in our personal life.  Father's Day is coming up but we have  birthdays to celebrate in June , so I made this birthday card to share with you.  I might use this card as a Stampin' Up convention swap.  I used a mix of stamps from the new and old catalog.  Of course the old catalog stamps I used here, are current in the new catalog.  I love it when they are carried over.  I don't like to give up items.

The base of the card is one of our new colors in the '2014-16 In Color' group called 'Lost Lagoon" (#133679).  The second layer is 'Baked Brown Sugar' (#131296),and the third layer is 'Very Vanilla' (#101650).  I stamped the 'Dictionary' stamp (wood #130348/clear#130351) on the very vanilla card stock with the baked brown sugar ink, followed with the globe stamp from the brand new stamp set  'Traveler' (134513) in the lost lagoon ink.  The large banner is cut from the 'Banner' framelits (#132173)  on the new 'Lullaby Designer Series Paper' (133695).  Seems funny to use a designer paper with the name lullaby.  The other two small banners were punched with the 'Banner Punch' (133519).  The center stamp, from the 'Starburst Sayings' set (wood #133182/clear #133185),  was stamped in the the lost lagoon ink and cut with the 'Starburst Framelits Die' (9132967).   The last stamp 'Happy Birthday Wishes' is from the 'Petite Pairs' (wood # 128706/clear #122497) on the very vanilla and backed up with baked brown sugar card stock punched with the 'Extra Large Oval' (#119859).  All the pieces were sponged with the baked brown sugar ink.
Hope you have a new catalog and are marking the items you want/need to get for your future projects.  You can order online by clicking Here.

The summer season is near and we will certainly appreciate warm weather.  Hang in there and meanwhile have fun ordering and stamping.  Be sure to click on the button below to see the other blogs.
