RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: Going Places

Hello, and welcome to the RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour!  Our theme this month is "Going Places."  

Many people say that making masculine-looking cards is a challenge, so I decided to give it a try with a fun fold I recently found on Pinterest (Thanks, Di Barnes).  I pulled my World Map, Traveler, and Guy Greetings stamp sets and started creating!  Here is what I came up with:

Card and custom envelope

The fun fold is called the Pop-Out Book Card, and it is really much easier than it looks.  I just taught it to my Stamp Club ladies today, and they loved it!

I used Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, and Very Vanilla card stock and some of the brand-spankin' new Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  I stamped with Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon ink.  The Blackberry Bliss ink on the Rich Razzleberry card stock really made the images pop.

We made a custom envelope since this card measures 5 1/2 x 
5 1/2 inches.  It was easy with our Envelope Punch Board.  A train stamped on the front of our custom envelope coordinates with the train images on the card.  

Here are the supplies I used for this project:

I hope you enjoyed this project.  Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger created!  

Here is the complete line-up of blogs on this tour:

Happy Stamping!

  1. Love it! Been trying to think outside the box on this stamp set, especially not focusing on masculine colors, and your colors and the neat fold makes it different! :)
