A Good Day for the Guys

Hello and Happy Tuesday! And oh what a happy Tuesday it is.....I got to finally get a sneak peek into the new 2018-2019 Annual catalog! OH-EM-GEE!!! I can't spill any of the beans just yet, but HOLY SMOKES! I just wish I could have gotten to go to the OnStage event but, it just wasn't in the cards...however, I am making a plan to go in November! I just can't stand it! In the meantime, I can tell you, we have a color revamp coming up in the new catalog, and that means some of our old favorites are coming back while some of our current favorites are going away. See the revamp here. I can also share the retirement lists with you too. Keep in mind, stamps will be available through the end of May, however, all non-stamps are while supplies last and much of it will go quickly!

Well, as I stated Sunday, I got to spend some time in my craft room over the weekend and I got to play with the A Good Day stamp set again. I love this little stamp set. The images may be small, but they sure are mighty! I wanted a masculine feel for a Thank You card and this set along with the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, fit the bill.

I started with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock for my card base cute 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored and folded at 4 1/4". I then took a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock cut 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and ran it through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front. I then cut 3 Night of Navy mats, 1 7/8" x 2 5/8" and  pieces of the True Gentleman Designer Series paper and a piece of Very Vanilla 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" and layered them onto the mats. I adhered the 2 pieces with the DSP flat to the card front and popped the piece with the Very Vanilla up on a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals. I then stamped the image from the A Good Day stamp set in Night of Navy ink and punched it out with the 1 3/8: Scalloped Circle Punch and layered it onto a slightly larger scalloped circle I cut using the Layering Circles Framelits collection and popped it up on Dimensionals and added a few loops of the Gold Thread for a bit of texture and interest.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and if you would like to receive tutorials such as this in your inbox, be sure to subscribe to my mailing list by clicking here. In the meantime, have an amazing day and happy stamping,
