Buck Birthday Card

Hi everyone.  My focus this week was a manly birthday card.  They are hard for us to create sometimes right?  I have mostly men in my family and it's difficult sometimes for me to come up with good ideas for cards.  I have the buck stamp and just love him, so I thought why not!  Lets make a manly card.
Here is my Buck Birthday Card.  Hope it inspires you.

Supplies used to make this card:
Just For Fun Stamps;
D3821 Right Facing Buck
F3868 Balsam Branch
WB8011 Greetings Word Block
Wild Wasabi, Garden Green & Old Olive Stampin' Up Ink Pads
Espresso Truffle Memento Ink Pad
Tea Dye Distress Ink
Vanilla Card Stock
Dark Blue Card Stock From Tim Holtz
Corrugated Cardboard
Blue Twine from Tim Holtz
Foam Mounting Tape

I stamped all over my back ground using all three of the green stamp pads with the Balsam Branch stamp.  Then stamped my "Happy Birthday" and my Buck with the espresso truffle ink.  I went around the all the edges of the vanilla paper with the tea dye ink pad to distress it. I mounted the vanilla paper on to the blue card stock, but at a slant.  Then put my corrugated cardboard on and my twine and put my buck on with foam mounting tape.  I also put the sentiment on with the foam mounting tape.
See you next month!
Hugs, Heidi

Cameo Valentine's Day Card

Heidi here with another fun Valentine's Day card.  This one is supper quick for that last minute card.  this one can be changed just a bit and then it can be masculine.  I used some Stampin' Up designed paper I had left over and a cupcake liner.  Along with two stamps and some Echo Park Paper Co. Ephemera Die Cut pieces that I just got at my local craft store.  It took me about 10 minutes to make this card.  But it is super cute and it looks like it took me hours.  Got love that!

I glued the envelope down and then used mounting tape under the No. 14 die cut, glued a small heart on top of that.  I then flattened the cupcake liner some what to make it into a circle shape and make a surface for the cameo to sit on top of.  I stuck it down with  a glue dot.  Added the Cameo with mounting tape and used Liquid Pearls to make her pearl earrings and headband.  I used my tag punch to make a pink tag and stamped my sentiment on it and used my black pen to make markings around it.  I then used silver Stickels to outline it.  Added some red and white bakers twin and mounting tape and TA DA !!    You can change the paper out and the cupcake liner for more masculine looking papers.  You could use a circle punch and use a complementary masculine paper to replace the liner.

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day.  Whether it be with your sweetheart or your best friends or both, may it be a great day!
Hugs, Heidi

Love Letters Card

Hi everyone!  Heidi here with two cute cards for you for Valentine's Day.  I have been playing with more ink sprays and Glimmer Mist.  I love the sparkle you get with it.  FYI, you will have glitter all over you too!  But it was fun.  I used full sheets of paper, sprayed them with my sprays and also did some drips and splatters.  I used three different stamps, red glitter embossing powder and red ribbon with brads.  I gathered the ribbon to form a bow and then punched a small hole and put my brad in to hold it in shape.  That made it stay flatter for mailing.  

Here is a list of supplies:
