Guy Greetings|Stampin’ Up!
WOW! Thank you for the list of sets you want to see you used my friends. We have a WINNER too. Scroll to the bottom to see if you are the WINNER…
I’ll be busy for a bit getting some inspiration into your hands. Some of the sets I do not own but I think I might be able to cover them a different way.
The common theme I could see from the comments was MAN CARDS.
Here I thought I was the only one that gets stumped or grumped when it comes to the man card. I’m not kidding. I get grumpy when I have to make one because I’m not using the typical supplies I use on other cards. Ribbon, lace, doilies, bling… these are common pieces I use for my cards. A man card though… much different.
I think of man card and the first thing that pops in my mind is – PLAIN JANE. Except it’s not for Jane…
I decided to dive in and play a bit with some of the manly sets I have. Just know that the struggle is real for me too. I sit and contemplate what else the card needs. Sigh…
Let’s start with Guy Greetings. I loved this set in the catalog and my favorite image is the weight lifter man. Then it arrived and it’s sat collecting dust. The weight lifter man now scares me. He’s creepy. Well, it’s a good excuse not to use it… right?
I decided to dive in and tackle this crazy man fear I have lately. I knew you guys would be behind me with full support.
I decided to pair a few stamps together and this made the manly stamping a bit easier. I used The Open Sea and Guy Greetings together for the card above. I also used one of the easiest stamping techniques I know- Rock n Roll. To make the background softer once I stamped it, I placed a piece of Vellum the same size over the stamped Whisper White paper. I love how this turned out. You can see the supplies listed below.
The next card I also wanted to use some Designer Series Paper. I have a stash that is screaming to be used. This card uses all of Guy Greetings and no other sets. I love how this DSP coordinates with the shoes in the stamp set. Pretty Classic.
What do you think of Guy Greetings? ? These are fairly easy cards with not a lot of fancy schmancy, but I love it.
Let’s reveal the winner.

Okay, I’m off to work on a few more of the stamp sets ya’ll are stuck on. I do have a few more dude cards coming too. YIPPIE.
