First Play – He’s The Man

These are the cards I made during this week’s Facebook Live video. You can watch it on replay on YouTube and Facebook. I go live on my Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page every Wednesday at 10:00 AET. You can check to see what time that is where you are at this website.

The upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue seems to have a record number of “masculine” sets, which is a great thing in my book. Do you want your very own copy of the catty? Click here to complete the form and I’ll be happy to send one to you!

Let me be clear in my choice of language – I truly believe that there are many people of any gender who like flowers and shiny things, and an equal number who like outdoor activities, BBQ, drinking, etc., and most probably like some of both. Until we have a better way to refer to these traditionally masculine interests, I will keep with convention and call them masculine themes.

The “badges” on these 2 cards are made with stamped images from the He’s All That stamp set. The starburst circle mat is cut with the coordinating All That Dies. As you can see on the video, I tried to cut the stamped images with a Layering Circles die, but it was too small, and I thought the next larger was too big. So I pulled out my retired 1 ¾” Circle Punch and used it. After I finished doing the Live I thought that it was really un-Stampin’-Up!-like to make a stamp and dies that wouldn’t coordinate, so I tried again. I’m happy to report that the Layering Circles and All That will work together!

This card’s badge is one of the images from the die-cut sheets that are included with the Designer Series Paper (DSP). I cut the mat with a Layering Circles die. Did you notice the little banners on each side of the circle images? They are also in the All That dies, and are cut from another pattern of the DSP.

I added an Early Espresso mat and stamped the Basic White layer on the inside for just a little extra special touch.

I said on the video that one of these will probably be Glenn’s anniversary card, though he doesn’t like camping, so we’ll see, LOL!
