Stamptastic Friends Share Masculine Cards

In the midst of preparing for our journey, I carved out a moment to craft a distinctive card with a masculine touch for a dear friend. May this serene image offer peace and serenity.

I gravitated towards the Thoughtful Journey Designer Series Paper once more—truly the gem of the new Annual Catalog. It’s coupled with the classic Grassy Grove set, though I believe the fresh In the Grove set could equally adorn this layout. It’s delightful to have the flexibility to blend our collections.

The silhouette of the tree, die-cut in Basic Black, casts an evocative twilight scene. It’s as though dusk is descending, yet the deer paused to relish the sky’s lingering hues. At the DSP’s base, I’ve stippled some grass in Pretty Peacock ink.

Stamptastic Friends Share Favorites

Today, the Stamptastic Friends community is showcasing an eclectic mix of card designs. While some members are bidding farewell to retiring favorites, others are unveiling fresh picks set to debut on May 1st.

As for my contribution, I’m blending the retiring with a new stamp set. It’s delightful to witness the seamless integration of our offerings across different catalogs.

Encircled in Nature, an online exclusive, takes center stage in my project. It’s harmoniously coupled with the Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper, which, although nearing its retirement, still has much to offer.

Here’s a handy tip for crafting the wreath: After die-cutting the wreath and floral elements, let them remain nestled within the paper. This little trick simplifies and accelerates the coloring process.

Card Base 8 ½” x 4 ¼” Score at 4 ¼”.

Stamping Diversity Celebrates Ramadan

Stamping Diversity Bloggers are sharing cards for Ramadan today. I chose to focus on Eid for my card.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as the “Holiday of Breaking the Fast,” is one of the two official holidays celebrated within Islam. It holds immense significance for Muslims worldwide as it marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting period of Ramadan. This joyous occasion is observed under various names in different languages and countries across the globe. One of its alternative names is “Lesser Eid.”

The festivities of Eid al-Fitr commence at sunset on the night of the first sighting of the crescent moon.

To capture the essence of this special day, I’ve adorned my card with a moon and a sprinkling of stars. Sometimes, simplicity speaks volumes, and this card beautifully captures the spirit of the occasion. 

I opted for a soothing blue color palette and infused a hint of gold to add vibrancy. The fun banner adds a touch of whimsey.

Celebrating diversity is a beautiful thread that binds us together. Crafting cards allows me to express this joy, and I’m delighted to share it with you!
