Easy Guy Card with Happy Celebrations

Looking for help making an easy guy card?  The all new Happy Celebrations stamp set and coordinating embossing folders give you great options!

easy guy card

One of the fabulous features of the Celebrations Duo embossing folders is that they deboss your card.   The “happy” has the added bonus of embossing the thin “happy” inside the blocky debossed word.

QUICK NOTE:  This card also features the new Urban Underground Embellishments.  I love all the shapes – they will be perfect for making an easy guy card.

For the inside of this card I used the cute birthday greeting from Better Together and then tied into the blue and gray with a strip of Flourish Washi Tape.

Stitched Shapes with Stampin’ Up! Snow Place

Stitched Shapes Framelits come in squares, circles and ovals. On this card you can see a rectangle. Read more to find out how to create this shape!


Fancy Frost Designer Series paper makes an appearance on this card.  You can see how I used this versatile paper without adding ink in THIS POST.  To create the snowy blue I used lots of Marina Mist ink and just a little Dapper Denim.  Both colors found their way to the paper using a Sponge Brayer.

The Snow Place stamp set is one of those great sets that has both inside and outside greeting.  Here is a look at how I decorated the inside:


Now for the big reveal – the rectangle greeting on the front of the card.  First I stamped

Simple DIY Christmas Card

This simple DIY Christmas card could easily be dressed up with some embellishments, but I like the clean look as it's shown:


For this card you can use the Cherry Cobbler ink pad to stamp the “at” and “Christmas”.  To color the holly berries first stamp the whole thing in Emerald Envy ink and then color over the green with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  I found the fine tip gave the most control to keep the cherries round and small.

“Why do you add the quarter sheet on top of the card?”  I hear this a lot.  Two reasons come to mind.  First this way you can add dimensionals under the quarter sheet to draw attention to the front layer of the card.  Second, if you happen to mis-stamp (and we all can do that) then you only have to toss a quarter
