Hats Off for Summer

My card features the super fun Hats Off Bundle found on page 47 of Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. Actually, I only used the smaller hat die to convey my summer and patriotic theme. The sentiment comes from A Good Man stamp set (located on page 46).

I’ve had a lot of fun creating a variety of hats — for both men and women — with this bundle. View this blog post for a few other ideas and a video.

The red, white, and blue theme, combined with the baseball hats, gives off a great summer vibe. After all, summer and baseball are synonymous.

In addition to the Hats Off Bundle and A Good Man, I used the following Stampin’ Up! products:

  • Basic White, Real Red, Night of Navy and Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Circles from the Picture This dies
  • Bottom layering decorative circle from Tasteful Labels Dies
  • Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder
  • The red/white ribbon from the Playful Pets Trim Ribbon Combo Pack
  • Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Fall Thank-You Card Tutorial

Stampin’ Up!’s Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper ranks as one of my faves right now. I just love all of the foil sheets. Look for it and the Gathered Leaves Dies in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.
