You Nailed It

Good Morning, Stampers!

The Nailed It stamp set is a great set for making masculine-themed cards, but it can also be used for others as well! Take this card by Stampin' Up! for instance. This would be perfect for congratulating a graduate, a thank you, a job well done or telling someone how proud you are of their accomplishments! The colors can easily be changed up for a more masculine or feminine feel.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Nailed It
Ink: Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon, Archival Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Urban Underground DSP
Accessories: Urban Underground Washi Tape, Blender Pen, Linen Thread

A Wonderful Friend

Good Morning, Stampers!

Have you ever put a card together and realized when you try to add the sentiment it doesn't fit? That's what happened to me with today's card! A quick and easy fix is to split the sentiment! Mask off part of the sentiment with a sticky note. Ink up the remaining part of the sentiment, remove the sticky note and stamp. Then, clean off the stamp really well and repeat with the other side. Voila! It was really simple to do with photopolymer stamps, however, if you have clear or wood mount stamps, a Stamp-a-ma-jig will help you place the sentiment perfectly!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams
Ink: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Blusing Bride
Paper: Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, Flourish thinlits
