Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have three super cute projects to share with you using products from the He's The Man Suite. The He's The Man Suite of Products are in the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and can be found on pages 78 & 79. I have a project for all crafters no matter where you are in your crafty journey. These were super fun projects and I know that you are going to love them. Here’s a look at today’s featured projects and in this blog post I will give you some tips & tricks on how to recreate each card as well in the blog post.
Beginner Crafter Level Card:
For each of the projects today I used the same card sketch. Let's start with the beginner level or simple stamper first. This is a person who may be just starting out, or someone that just wants to create some super quick and fast cards.
For this card I cut a piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock in half and scored it in half. I then cut a piece of Basic White Cardstock and stamped the compass image from the He's All That Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink to create my own designer series paper. I then decided it needed just a little more so I added in the small button stamp to fill in the open areas. I then took the cardstock and cut off a section on each side. I attached the two smaller pieces on the side of the card base and the larger one in the center.
I then added a sentiment stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Soft Succulent Cardstock. I popped up the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals to finish the card.
Casual Crafter Level Card:
A casual crafter my have a few more supplies then someone just starting out, and may be a little further along on their crafting journey. So, for the casual card I used a card base made from Sahara Sand Cardstock. Instead of stamping my own designer series paper I used a piece of the He's the Man Speciality Designer Series Paper.
I cut this piece of DSP the same way I did the simple card. I cut two smaller pieces from the ends and attached those onto the card base and then the larger one in the middle.
I then took a piece of Early Espresso Cardstock and punched both ends with the Banners Pick A Punch. I then added a sentiment stamped in Early Espresso Ink onto a piece of Basic White Cardstock. I punched out the layer with the Lasting Layer Punch.
I then aded two more punch outs using the Lasting Label Punch from Soft Succulent Cardstock. I cut the labels in half and added them behind the Basic White label to create a mat before popping it up onto Stampin' Dimensionals.
Avid Crafter Level Card:
The Avid Crafter would have more than both of the pervious crafters and more than likely owns a die cutting machine like the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I used the same card base cut from Sahara Sand Cardstock. But I cut up one Inch on both sides of the card front up to the score line.
This was in order to create a fun fold card. I then added a piece of Basic White Cardstock to the center and attached the two side flaps down. I then added two pieces of the He's The Man Speciality Designer Series Paper to both flaps.
On the center flap I added the same larger piece as before. But I also added four of the argyle die cuts that I cut out from Early Espresso Cardstock using the dies from the All That Dies. I added these to the card front with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
For the sentiment I stamped it in Early Espresso Classic Ink and die cut it with the oval die from the All That Die Set. I then added two banners cut with dies from that same die set and designer series Paper behind the oval before popping it all up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I finished off the card by adding a few Rustic Metallic Dots to the card front.
