How About 5 Man Cards? All Made from the “He’s the Man” Suite!

The annual catalog will be retiring very soon, so I wanted to show you how to use one suite to make tons of cards. I could make many more cards, not just the 5 I’m showing here, plus some duplicates of the ones I’m showing!

The suite comes with stamps, dies, DSP that includes 2 sheets of die cuts!, and very cool Rustic Dots embellishments. This suite is PERFECT for man cards!


Ok, let’s get started!

For this card, no stamping! I just used the die cuts and the paper! I also used the dies for the argyle looking things behind the sentiment. Easy!


Product List



For this card, I used 4 of the die cuts (the grill, the “flippin’ awesome, the star, and the notebook paper looking thing behind everything). For the sentiment, I used the  Enjoy the Rhythm stamp set. I stamped with Early Espresso and die cut with the Stylish Shapes. The background paper is from the He’s the Man DSP.

Another easy card! I used 3 die cuts, the cars and the sentiment. I used the dies for the flags/banners on the side. I used Soft Succulent cardstock and then embossed with the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder.

OK, the next two cards are some of the unique ones. One is the Pop & Twist technique, the other is the Double Flap Fun Fold Card. You can always see my instructions for these cards and others under “Instructions”. It would be on the right side on a computer, or all the way at the bottom on a phone.


For this card, the Double Flap Fun Fold card, I stamped the stamp from He’s All That stamp set with Early Espresso on white and die cut with one of the dies from the die set. Everything else is from the die cuts in the DSP!

Here’s my instructions for that kind of card:

And my last card, the Pop & Twist. These cards are so fun and you can use them for any type of card!

I stamped the sentiment from He’s All That stamp set with Early Espresso and die cut it with one of the dies from the All That dies. I also die cut some of the argyles again, this time using Sahara Sand cardstock.

All the things on the inside are from the die cuts. The “happy birthday” is from the A Grand Kid stamp set.

Here’s the instructions for the Pop & Twist.


Product List



Ok! I used a couple of other stamp sets on these cards, but you could use any “happy birthday” stamp. 95% of what’s on these cards is from the He’s the Man Suite. I don’t know if the stamp and dies will retire, but even if they don’t, there is a 99% chance the paper will. Those die cuts can make so many dang cards!


Using Dies for Stencils AND the Negative Piece for the Background! Video!

My youngest son’s girlfriend has a birthday this month. She loves butterflies so I decided to dig out the Butterfly Wings dies to make her a card!

You might have seen my video from March of 2021 and how I did some of this. Here’s a link to the post and you can see my original video there:

Beautiful Butterflies!

Here’s my recent video with the same idea, but another trick!

Golden Cherries! Two Cards and a Video!

When I saw the Share a Milkshake stamp set in the mini, I loved it, but I especially loved the sentiment “You’re the Cherry on Top”. I’ve had the Sweetest Cherries bundle for a while and I always thought it should have the sentiment!

I wanted the cherries to have some shine or sparkle, so I looked through all my stuff and the Gilded Leafing won!

Since the cherries are shiny gold, I decided to put the Distressed Gold paper behind my Split Card Textures die cut.

Here’s another card I made during the video. Just some color change and I added leaves from the punch with Distressed Gold.

Here’s the quick video of me making the pink card:

A Gnome with Flowers and a Tissue Box!

You can make those gnomes for any type of card!

For the one, I stamped the tissue box and flowers with Memento ink, then fussy cut and colored with blends.

For the gnome, I die cut his hat with So Saffron, his hand and nose with Petal Pink, his shirt and pants with Mint Macaroon, and his beard with the Snowy White velvet sheets. Those sheets are retiring and they are on sale!

I colored the beard with the Gray Granite blends. It’s so nice to have a fuzzy beard!

I die cut a piece of Sahara Sand (the size was 1-1/2″ x 5-3/8″) with the Basic Borders dies.

The background is Shaded Spruce embossed with the Gingham folder.

Bunnies with a Big Carrot!

When I looked through the SAB catalog, I saw the Thanks a Bunch stamp set (page 5). I wasn’t sure how I would use it, but since I was also getting the Easter Bunny bundle (page 52), I had an idea!

I reversed stamped and punched the bunny so that they would be facing each other. Here’s my quick video on that:


I also used the Dandy Designs DSP that is also SAB (pages 14-15). It is a HUGE pack of 12×12 DSP. Free if you spend $100! It’s the background paper on this card, so you don’t see a lot of it. All the paper is so pretty and very Spring!

I die cut one of the Fabulous Frames and colored the inside piece with my Blending Brushes. I added the bunnies and the carrot (stamped with Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut). The sentiment is from the Easter Bunny stamp set.

How about a card that holds a gift card? And is really pretty?

I made this card during this video, and it may be one of my all-time favorites. You’ll see the original card during the video. I made that one a few weeks ago. I planned to do the video next week, but the most important thing about this card is the die that holds the gift card. That sucker is on sale until tomorrow for 20% off!

I’ll share the other cards I showed during the video in the days ahead.

Here’s the instructions for the measurements of this card (you can also find it and others under “instructions” on the right (from a computer) or the bottom (from a phone):
