Making Masculine Cards with a Nautical Theme


You will make some awesome masculine cards with this nautical themed set!  The Sailing Home Bundle is one of the new and very popular products int the new Stampin' Up! catalog.

This past Thursday on my "Late Night with Lisa" Facebook Live, we made the two cards that you see here.   The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper in this suite is the perfect supplement for this stamp set and coordinating die set. 

Here are the details for the "anchor" card seen above.


Don't you love the clean lines on this card above?  Here are the details!

As you can just imagine,  this bundle is very versatile!  Think graduation cards for anyone, sentiments of support, thank you cards...lots of possibilities!  Did you see the Father's Day card made with this same designer paper and coordinating Memories and More card kit?

Now that you've seen it (and, need it!), hop on over to the online store to get the bundle and the coordinating paper! Get started on your own masculine cards...and, more...with this wonderful nautical theme!

Greece is the Word!

Greece-stampin-upSo excited to receive these travel documents from Stampin' Up! last week!

I am honored and so very grateful for the support of my wonderful customers, team, supportive family, and my husband (my biggest cheerleader) for helping me to achieve another wonderful incentive trip!

We will be cruising the Greek Isles next month...another trip of a lifetime!   And, I could never have done it without the support of so many of you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!---Lisa

Need A Handmade Card In A Hurry?


Let's start the week off with a handmade card idea that you can complete in a hurry!  It's all about being prepared and creating a few "blank" cards when you have the time!  Blank = without a sentiment.  We all have those times when we need a card in a jiffy and realistically, there is not time to start from scratch. Today's video tutorial features the card above and idea for you not to find yourself in a situation where you do not have the card you need.

You will also see all of our beautiful new Stampin' Up! In Colors for 2019-2020.  I have to be a first glance, I wasn't that impressed with these colors.  But, once I started working with them, I LOVE them.  And, Stampin' Up! is right on trend.  You can see these colors in fashion, home decor, and nail polish!

Let's take a look at the video tutorial for this handmade card.


Here's the card done in Purple Posy.


Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is Smoky Slate cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" or 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
  • Large cardstock layer is cut 4" x 5 1/4".
  • Smoky Slate layer is 3 1/4 x 4 1/4.
  • Designer Paper is cut 3" x 4".

I have all of these below in my stash for when I need a card with a specific theme or sentiment.
