Makin' a Masculine Card!

Today I made this pretty simple, masculine card! The actual opening of the card is on the front layer ~

And inside there's a little pocket - for a gift card or cash!

Here are the measurements if you want to make a card like this ~

Crumb Cake Cardstock base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" plus a scrap piece for oval
Tranquil Textures 'Crumb Cake' DSP - 4" x 5 1/4"
Night of Navy Cardstock - 4 1/4" x 6 1/2" - score at 3 1/4" and fold in half
Tranquil Textures DSP for card front - 3" x 4" and 1" x 4" 
Tranquil Textures DSP for inside - 3" x 6" - score at 2" and adhere edges
Whisper White Cardstock - 3" x 4"
Night of Navy Baker's Twine - about 24"

I made this card on Facebook live today - so if you want to watch it, and see me sideways (Haha! I'm still learning :) ), you can see it here - 

See ya soon,

Takeout Treat Box for Classes this Week!!

We are making this super sweet little Takeout Treat Box in stamp classes this week! It's a cute little size, about 2" high. It fits just a few little treats, and it's so cute and perfect not only for Halloween, but lots of other occasions! The coordinating set has a few any everyday sayings and a Valentine one too! 

And my favorite part of making the box is that you need just a half sheet of cardstock - super great for making multiples!

I hope you'll be at one of my stamp classes this week,

Creation Station Hop - Power of the Punch!

Welcome to Just Julie B's! I'm so excited to share with you my card creation for this month's blog hop - Power of the Punch! I'm using a punch that will be available to purchase from the new Holiday Catalog that starts on September 5th. I just LOVE Halloween - so I knew I had to share this new Spooky Bats Punch!

It may be hard to see in the picture, but the bats were punched from Basic Black Cardstock that was spritzed with a Frost White Shimmer Paint mixture. I put about 7 drops of the paint into a Stampin' Spritzer, and then filled the rest with 91% rubbing alcohol. After shaking it up, you just spray onto the cardstock and let dry a few minutes. - then tah dah, Shimmery Bats!!   

The 'moon' is also an easy punched trick! I punched a 2-1/4" Circle from Mango Melody and then sponged it with some Pumpkin Pie - a perfect and easy moon. I took a slice off of it just for a different look.

Another fun accent to the card are the Basic Jewel Rhinestones - that are colored to match! I used the Stampin' Blends coordinating marker to color over them before adhering them - Bootiful in Blackberry Bliss! ;)

I hope you enjoyed this quick stop by, and I can't wait to see what Dena has in store for us next...
