Cards for Guys....

May 2024 PAPER PUMPKIN!  Definitely guy cards and we all need them, right?  Father's Day, birthdays ~ whatever you celebrate just change the sentiment!



Reversible Stamps

My friend, Helen, stopped by the studio this week to get some additional crafting information.  One of the questions on her list was about reversible stamps ~ what that term meant and how to use these stamp sets.  There have been a limited number of these stamps in the last several catalogs and Stampin' Up! describes the differences and uses in the following video.  In addition, you can find information on page 82 and 83 in the annual catalog in a section titled DOUBLE PLAY.

  1. Using Paper Trimmer, cut DSP according to the diagram below.
  2. Arrange cut strips on one side of Lost Lagoon CS starting from the bottom left corner, leaving each piece hanging over CS working your way to the top left.  Leave a small space between each piece.  You can decide how much space to have.
  3. Once you have it the way you want it-use your adhesive and adhere each piece making sure to have ends off the side of the card.  Points should be toward the center of the CS.
  4. Using your Paper Snips, trim off all pieces of DSP.
  5. Attach this to your card base using your adhesive.
  6. Stamp your sentiment using Pretty Peacock and punch with a circle punch or your circle dies.
  7. Punch a piece of Pretty Peacock in the next size up.
  8. Attach the sentiment to the Pretty Peacock Circle using your adhesive and attach over the DSP “points” using a Dimensional.
  9. Attach your Basic White CS to the inside of your card for your message.

Repeat this process for the second card.  Cutting diagram below.
