Hats Off for Summer

Thanks for joining us today! Welcome to Team Stamp It’s June blog hop. This month,The r we feature cards and projects with a summer and/or patriotic theme.

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

So many fun ways to personalize the great baseball cap image found in Stampin’ Up!’s Hats Off Bundle. Today’s post shows you how I combined the Hats Off and Spiral Dye stamp sets to create a unique hat with a feminine touch.

Be sure to watch the video below for instructions. (Also, look at the swap cards I received on the Maui Incentive Trip.)

This card takes two steps. First, complete the first two-step process used to create the fun, multi-colored Spiral Dye image. This post contains a video and a card sample. I used the new 2021-2023 In Colors of Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia.

Stamp the hat image with Memento ink onto your completed Spiral Dye image. When using a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of card stock, you get two hat images. Die cut the hat with either the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine or the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Add a “label” or a “crest” to your hat.

Here’s another card that uses the smaller hat die from this set.
