Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another Simple Stamps ink and Paper Card using the Outdoor Barbecue Stamp Set from the 2020 Stampin’ Up! January – June Mini Catalog.  This is a super cute masculine themed stamp set that you may have even missed in the catalog.  It’s on page 50 of the Mini Catalog.  I actually used two stamp sets to make this card.  I used both Outdoor Barbecue and then I used the Sending You Thoughts Saleabration Stamp Set for the sentiment on the outside.  Here’s a look at my card.

I often here “Rick I need masculine card ideas” or “how do you come up with masculine cards” I think a lot of people think just because I am a guy that I can come up with masculine cards easily.  I am just like the rest of you I have to really think about masculine cards, I prefer to make pretty floral cards, those are my go to cards.  Because, I love floral designs and paintings.   You will hear in the video me talk about this a little bit.

Tips & Tricks: 

For my #simplestamping masculine birthday card I started out with my card base.  I picked Crumb Cake Cardstock as my base (I know no surprise there, so the next statement want surprise you either if you follow my blog) cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  Once I had the cardbase cut I picked the hamburger image from the stamp set to stamp all around the card base in matching Crumb Cake ink.  Once that was done I took at 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the grill in the top center with Smoky Slate ink.  I then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sending You Thoughts FREE Saleabration stamp set in Crumb Cake ink below.  
For the inside of my card I stamped the hamburger in Crumb Cake ink going up the left hand side of a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5 1/4 x 4.  I also stamped the sentiment “Holy Smokes It’s Your Birthday” from the Outdoor Barbecue Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink.  This stamp set not only has some smoking hot images but some great witticism sentiments that will make you and the person getting this card laugh.  It’s also has a great Father’s Day Sentiment and a You’re Invited sentiment in the set as well; making it a great addition to your collection.  

How to Earn the Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set FREE:

Earning FREE items during Saleabration is super easy!  You are rewarded for shopping; for every $50 you spend you can pick a FREE level one Saleabration Item.  Spend $100 and you can pick a Level 2 Saleabration Item. 
I have worked out some math on my project today to help you to know what to buy to earn this stamp set free.  I have done three different options so that you can pick whatever would work with your budget.  
  • Option 1: (The I want it all! Size Order)  If you want everything I used today plus ink refills and adhesive refill it would cost you $79.00 plus shipping and taxes!  

  • Option 2 (Medium Size Order):  If you have already ordered the ink pads but not the reinkers.  I would suggest you do the following as your order and it could cost you $57.00 (plus shipping and tax).  

  • Option 3 (Basic Order)  Say you are just starting out, I would suggest the following as your order during Saleabration to get the FREE Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set.  Which would run about $52.00 (plus shipping and taxes)
