dude, you’re just like awesome…

05.27.2021…..Happy Thursday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for a recent Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It was a “Manly May” Challenge, so the team members created projects with a masculine look or style.

I grew up in So Cal, spending my summer days at the beach whenever possible, and my inspiration for this card is from a “surfer vibe” graphic t-shirt. Hope this card inspires to create a card or project for that special “dude” in your life!

The Stampin’ Fancy Friday members are group of past and continuing Stampin’ Up! Artisans bringing our followers a fancy monthly challenge to inspire them to get creative!

For this card, I started with some Basic Black Cardstock, embossed it with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic Black Cardstock base. I heat-embossed the palm trees (from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set) on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Before I used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base, I layered some Basic White Cardstock underneath.

I used a Water Painter (along with Bermuda Bay) to watercolor a small square of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. After I dried it with a Heat Tool, I layered some Pacific Point Cardstock underneath, and popped it up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The “Dude” letters were created with the Basic White Thick Cardstock, using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I also popped them up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment (from the Nothing’s Better Than Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut out the sentiment, I popped it up with a few more Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
