Not "Something for Baby"

My card today is one for the men in our lives, not always an easy task making "Man" cards, it's just so easy to make something pretty and floral and we always struggle when it comes to the men.
I've used a new stamp set called "Something for Baby", you can see it contains lots of things for little ones

but I've taken the tie stamp and created a masculine card with it.
There is a set of Framelit Dies to go with these stamps, and one of those cuts out the the image which saves so much time.
I used the new Rotary Alphabet stamp, I love this, great for personalising things with names and dates.  On my card I added the word "Brother".
The Real Red layer was cut using the new Project Life Framelits dies.

The "For You" is taken from the "Num Num" stamp set, I used a marker pen to ink just the words I wanted, love how we can do this.
Will have to make a batch of these as I think they will come in handy!

Work of Art Pocket Card

I have a pocket card for you today, the inner piece pulls out from the top to reveal the birthday greeting inside.  Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the stamping inside!
I have used a new In Colour
Lost Lagoon
Crisp Cantaloupe
and my all time fave
Crumb Cake
I've used the new Stitched Satin Ribbon here in Lost Lagoon, it is so beautiful in real life and ties lovely bows.  Securing it in place is some of the new Thick Bakers Twine in Crisp Cantaloupe.

I used Craft White Ink to create the spots, this is a stamp from the "Work of Art" set and the two brush strokes are from the same set. 
The little flowers are from a set called "Something to Say" and they have a cute co-ordinating punch that comes as a set of three, a Heart, Star and Flower.

Work of Art Stamps £19.95 Clear Mount
And the finished project, a lovely little pocket card or money wallet.

Moonlight Designer Papers

I can't get enough of this little Designer Paper Stack "Moonlight", at just £6.25 it's a steal!  Contains 48 sheets of perfectly sizes papers (6 1/2" x 4 1/2") which are all double sided.
Another card using the "Something to Say" stamps which are fab, great value with so many uses.
I embossed the white layer to add interest using the Honeycomb Embossing Folder, and remember, you don't need the Big Shot Machine to create this effect, we have a lower priced tool called the "Texture Boutique" which is solely for embossing.  It's an affordable tool that creates such a wow!
I used my new set "Work of Art" to add some brush lines at the bottom of the tag, stamped a flower and greeting from the "Something to Say" stamp set, punched both out with co-ordinating punches (love this) then using my "Flower Fair" framelits dies cut two flowers with Lost Lagoon cardstock.
The ribbon is from the new In Colour range, here I used Hello Honey, just love how everything I have co-ordinates and that I don't have to think too hard when being creative, thank you Stampin' Up! for making life easier for me!

I'm feeling a little tired today, the storm woke me up last night and I came down to see that my little man was okay, I think he thought it was morning as he asked to go outside, even though it was thundering and plenty of lightening, he didn't seem bothered!  Quiet morning in the craft room today I think, then a little housework later!
