Handsomely Suited

This card would be great for a groom or for the prom. I just love this stamp set and I knew I wanted to purchase it as soon as I saw it in the catalog.  The stamp set is called Handsomely Suited which is in the 2021 January-June Mini on pages 66-67.  It can be purchased as a Bundle to save 10% or as a Suite to get the Well-Suited DSP and Twine Comb Pack.  I used the retired Black Foil on the lapel, pocket, and bow tie.  The Black Rhinestone Jewels are also retired, but I'm glad I kept them. 
Here are my instructions:  

1.     The base of the card is Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.

2.    The Basic Black cardstock is cut at 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”.  Use the Suit and Tie Die “V” to cut out the top center for the suit.

3.    Die-cut a strip of Basic White using the die for the center of the shirt.  Attach to the middle of the “V” on the Basic Black before adhering to the card.  Cut off excess. Die-cut the collar from Basic White.  Adhere to the top.

4.    Die-cut the lapel, bowtie, and pocket strip using the Black Foil.  Adhere with Dimensionals. Put a little bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to hold the lapel in place at the “V”.

5.    Add the Black Rhine Jewels for the buttons.

Spiral Dye Background Stamp - Happy Birthday card

This is a new background stamp called Spiral Dye that will be coming out next month on May 4 in the Stampin' Up! 2021-22 Annual Catalog.  I used two new In-Colors called Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia.
I inserted Basic White cardstock into the Stamparatus for the first color Polished Pink. Clean off the stamp. Then I turned the cardstock completely around (180 degrees) making sure the cardstock is in line with the stamp in the Stamparatus. The next color I used was the new Fresh Freesia.  The "Happy Birthday" is die-cut from the Birthday Chick Dies in the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine and adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The Basic Black cardstock really makes it pop!

Handsomely Suited Box Shirt with Suspenders

This is a box shirt with suspenders that I made from the Handsomely Suited stamp set and Suit and Tie Dies.  It is from the 2021 January-June Catalog that you can purchase as a bundle to save 10%.  The paper is the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.  This is not a card, but it is actually a box from the Love You Always Treat Box.

Handsomely Suited


This is another card I made using the Handsomely Suited Bundle.  It makes for a great masculine card especially for the man who wears a suit to work every day.  The gray pin-stripe is from the Well-Suited Designer Series Paper that will be retiring at the end of June.  I can't wait to make more of these suit jackets and there is even a bow tie to use.

Handsomely Suited Birthday Card

Years ago, I created a card that I made into a suit jacket but I didn't have the dies to make it, so it was not very easy.  I was so happy to see that Stampin' Up! made the Handsomely Suited stamp with set with the Suit and Tie Dies to go with it.  Here is my first project using this Bundle from the January-June Mini catalog.

Butterfly Brilliance Keepsake Box

I'm back!  Yes, I've not been posting for several weeks because I have been too busy to create new things.  I've been pulling all the retiring items I have to make room for new products I've ordered with my Pre-order.
These lovely keepsake boxes were made with the soon retiring Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die which I just started playing with it.  I used the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks to make the design on them.  I haven't put any tags on them yet, but wondering if I really want to.  The butterflies are die-cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies and then glued to either side of the fastener but yet so that it can be opened without tearing the box.  This lovely idea came from Erica Cerwin on how to make them and they are easy to make.  What's inside?  Candy, of course!  But there are so many ideas of what you could put in them.
