My PAPER PUMPKIN KIT for May turned out to be purrrrfect to celebrate baseball just as the Tides began their season in Norfolk ~ good timing.  And, good cards for male friends ~ can't wait to put them in the mail! 




Tuesday Project Sheet ~ Well Dressed!

Happy Tuesday!  Happy Masculine Card today!  We really need to have more stamp sets celebrating the men in our lives, don't we?  This is a great idea/layout for this Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Well Dressed, and it uses a saying from the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set (page 50 in the Spring Mini).  And, I love the colors ~ Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch!  Did you remember that these two are part of the 2018-2020 IN-COLORS and will be retiring on June 2 ~ or, sooner, because they will only be available while supplies last!  Check these five colors out on page 164 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog and let me know if you would like to order/resupply.  As I am sure you have heard me say a million times ~ if you have the stamp pad, be SURE that you have the little ink refill bottle!!!  Have a healthy day!

Stamp set from catty

I used the Designer Series Paper from the COUNTRY CLUB SUITE on page 46 & 47 in the Spring Mini for this card.  The paper is all about golf but flip it over for some great designs for your masculine cards.  The colors in the paper are Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Night of Navy.  The suite also includes  four spools of colored twine in all the colors above except the Crushed Curry.  Enjoy your Monday!
