Stampin’ Up! He’s The Man Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi stampers, today for our hop we have a DSP challenge.  My card is using the He’s the Man DSP from the annual catalog and this card has NO ink or stamping! (But I did sneak in a bow, because this is a “Kristi” card after all, and don’t all my cards have bows?  lol) Using the scrappy strip technique was a fun way to use lots of DSP and make a quick card too.  Please stop by our other team members blogs to see what they created using DSP

The Theme:


Stampin’ Up! He’s the Man:


The Recipe:

Card base: Early Espresso 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4

Mat: Sahara Sand 5-1/4 x 4

Scrappy Strip base: Sahara Sand 5-1/8 x 3-7/8

Scrappy Strips: He’s the Man DSP 5 x varied widths cut at a diagonal

Scallop mat: Early Espresso Die cut with the Layering Circle Dies

Circle: Basic White die cut with Stylish Shape Die

The Details:

  • Cut a variety of diagonal strips from the He’s the Man DSP
  • Put several stipes of Stampin Seal Adhesive onto the front of the 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 Sahara Sand scrappy strip base
  • Adhere your pieces of DSP to the base starting at the left have side and working across the card, butting the pieces of paper together
  • Trim all the overhanging pieces of DSP off the scrappy strip base

Putting the Card Together:

  • Mount the scrappy strip layer to the Sahara Sand mat with Stampin Seal
  • Adhere this layer to the card front with Dimensional
  • Mount the Basic White circle to the Early Espresso scallop mat
  • Attache the matted circle to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the sentiment and bus from the “He’s the Man DSP embellishment pack (it comes with the DSP) to the circle with Dimensionals

Finishing Touches:

  • Add a Crumb Cake Bakers Twine bow to the left of the sentiment
  • Add a few Rustic Metallic dots to the front of the card and you are done

Another Variation:

I had so much fun making this card I had to make a few more.  Here is just one more of the many cards I made with the scrappy strip technique using other papers from the He’s the Man DSP paper pack
