Last Friday night was my Live Class – Laughs & PaperCrafts – here in Rugby, Warwickshire. I love this event, and last Friday’s class was no exception. We had lots of fun, cake, and of course, laughs! This month we focused on men’s cards. This is area many crafters find tricky, me included. And so many stamp sets seem geared towards women. But look at your stamp sets closer and you may just see they have ‘man card’ potential!
Stampin’ Up! Bookcase Builder may be one stamp set that you didn’t notice in the Spring/Summer catalogue. I love it and I’m glad it’s carrying over to the new catalogue because I really haven’t played with it as much as I’d like. At first glance, it seems baby card orientated or maybe new home? But look closer and you’ll see plenty of images that are perfect for men’s cards. The trophy, the globe, even the books. But especially the deer/moose antlers!
Funny story – one of my class attendees said it reminded her of pants! Fortunately, I don’t really see it, so I’m not stuck with that image – but do you? I saw ‘Scottish hunting lodge’ personally! We kept our men’s cards pretty generic so they could be used for Father’s Day, but also for any man you might need a card for. You would just pop an appropriate greeting inside – birthday etc.
LARGE BACKGROUND STAMPING – TOP TIP VIDEO!
I love the large background stamps from Stampin’ Up! but I only have small hands and find them hard to work with once mounted onto the F clear block or on a wood mount. So here is my top tip for how I get around that problem and I made it into a top tip video for you:
