how to make a quick and easy masculine card

Hello Friends!!, Today I am sharing another card featuring the truly tailored stamp set!! as you have read in my last posts this set is truly perfect to make masculine cards!!, and with Fathers day around the corner, this set surely will need to be on your collection!

This stamp set comes with a coordinating punch on a bundle and when you get them as a bundle you actually save 10% on both items, so it is a good deal to get them together, though you can also purchase them by themselves.. The punch will still be available in the new catalog, however the stamp set is retiring at the end of May!!, so if this is on your wish list, don’t let it go, as once they are gone, they are gone for good!

My card today is as well simple, quick and easy!! I used the Eastern Palace designer series paper, instead of the truly gentleman designer series paper, and I love how it looks.. 

I stamped in dapper denim the sentiment on the coordinating cardstock and punch it out, and then I stamped the same image as well with Cajun craze in very vanilla, so I could fussy cut the little fox, and using a mini dimensional I glued it on top of the dapper denim.. It is the little details that make a card pop up, don’t you agree?
truly tailored, masculine cards, birthday cards

The card base is tranquil tide (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) and the top layer is very vanilla (4″x 5 1/4″), then I added two strips of the designer series paper, honestly the length doesn’t matter too much as long as one is longer than the other, both are 1″ wide, I stamped the sentiment “today is your day, celebrate in style” in tranquil tide on the very vanilla and then I added the punched out sentiment with dimensionals

masculine cards, truly tailored, birthday cards

April Top Ten Winners Blog Hop – Baby Theme



Hello Friends!!, today I am participating on the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop, thanks to your support and voting for my card!! Thanks a lot!! the theme on this hop is Baby! and it is so special for me as I am sharing with you a special announcement.. 


When I learned that April’s International Highlights theme was Babies, I got so excited and decided that if I won this month, this is where I would announce that we are expecting a little girl in September!! We are so blessed to know that our family is growing and that I will have the joy to experience both a little boy (My Oliver) and now a little girl!! I am soooo thrilled with the news..

This is so especial for me as I had always wanted a little girl, we got pregnant back in 2015 of a little girl, but sadly she was sick and we lost her at week 15, I have never felt so much pain in my heart.. Any way a year later we got blessed with the arrival of our little Oliver and he is truly the joy of our lives!! he is such a happy boy, so fun and full of joy, I couldn’t have asked for a better baby!! I am sure all moms think that way..  I love so much having a little boy, that this time around, I honestly didn’t have a preference on a boy or girl, I even thought that another boy would have been perfect for Oliver to have a forever playmate and friend.. But when I got the news it was a Girl, I was so excited, as we will have the experience of being parents of a boy and a girl!! I am sure Oliver will still have a little friend on her and they will play together all the time.. so we are all super happy with the news!

Ok, now to the card!! Cause I am sure you are wanting to see the card!!! right??
