Magnificent Maple!

Good morning, Stampers!

When I got home yesterday, hubby was in the yard with his chainsaw, when it hit my like a ton of bricks!  Today’s card would feature that super cool Birch Paper Ribbon in the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit!

If you have been following me for any length of time, you know I LOVE to make masculine cards.  While feminine cards are usually pretty easy, it is the masculine ones that seem to stump most folks.

I was thrilled to receive the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit for FREE!  Thank you Stampin’ Up!   I am hosting Thanksgiving this year, so you can imagine that I intend to put most of the pieces in the kit to good use.

 Check out the texture of the Birch Paper Ribbon!  How much more manly can you get?!

Your Stamping Teacher Tip:  Keep your masculine cards simple and plain!

I pulled out the two rolls of paper to show you up close what they look like.

Below is a photo of the contents of the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit!  I have a few other ideas for cards, however, since the kit makes enough for 10 dinner guests, I will have to wait until I know the exact number before I dig into the other elements of the kit.

Quick and Easy Using Your Scraps!

When your week is too busy and you absolutely need a quick and easy card, why not use your scraps of Designer Series Paper to get the job done?!

Personalize the card you  make with Teeny Tiny Wishes, another go-to stamp set that has 24 sentiments for just about any occasion.

Retirement Up close you will notice that I added some ink splats from Gorgeous Grunge.  Just enough interest without overdoing it.
