Masculine Birthday for TSOT376 & TSOT Technique!


I have another Masculine Birthday Card to show you!

I noticed my Masculine Birthday stash was low, so this is the

third or fourth card I have done to replenish my stash!

Today’s Card is a combination of 2 Challenges, from the same Challenger!

One is a Technique Challenge and the other, a Sketch Challenge!


Here are those Challenges!


TSOT-August Technique-Add Dimension No Foam Tape

It was mentioned that you can add dimension 3 ways…without foam dots or squares!

First, stacking die-cuts from chipboard under the stamped image.

Second, stamp on craft foam, cut it out, heat to shrink to size you want.

Third, overlapping or layering card elements.

I went with the First way…I used 6 layers of cardstock instead of chipboard!

(the 5 layers of Soft Suede, and then the stamped wheel layer)


Here is the second Challenge, the Sketch Challenge!



Optional theme: Pop It Up!

I decided to use the yellow circle for my ‘stacked, popped up’ technique for dimension!



Here is my Card!


The Wagon Wheel is my dimensional pop-up!

A Technique Note: to stamp the wheat to reflect each other, I first stamped onto an acrylic sheet and then turned it over and used it, as a clear stamp to reflect the wheat on the opposite side of the card front. The left side is the stamp side, the right side is the side I used the ‘acrylic stamp’!


Here is a side view of the Popped Up/Stacked Wheel!


I used my 1 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the wheel, and then 5 circles in Soft Suede

to glue together, stacked, and the stamped image on top!

I used my small 1/8″ Hole Punch in the center of the wheel ‘stack’

and put a brad through it, to look like the wheel hub!

Here is the inside of my Card!


The strip, left over, from the front panel…I stamped it the same as the front.

I also stamped the wheel again, then I cut it in half and adhered. I do make 2 cards,

at once, when I make my cards, so the other half of the wheel is inside the second card!




Whisper White Thick- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″, folded in half on the score

-inside panel, 4″ x 5.25″

Soft Suede- mat on front, 3.75″ x 5″          5- 1.75″ Circles to stack behind wheel image

Whisper White, Regular-  a piece to stamp the wheels onto and then punch out


Festive Farmhouse- front panel, 3.5″ x 4.75″    inside strip- .75″ x 4″


Country Road- greeting, wheel, star, wheat

Special Celebrations- inside sentiment


Memento Tuxedo Black- greeting, wheat

Cajun Craze- star, inside sentiment

Soft Suede- wheat, wheel

Crushed Curry- wheat


Soft Suede- used to color the outside edge of the wheel for stacking

(the white cardstock has a white core, to let it become part of the stack, I colored around the edges and let it blend into the rest of the Soft Suede stacked circles)


1 3/4″ Circle Punch- 2 wagon wheels and 5 circles in Soft Suede Cardstock

1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch- punched hole for brad in center of wheel


Metallic Brads- leftover from my Paper Pumpkin Kit-July 2018-Picnic Paradise

used for the center wheel hub


Here is my Card again!


I am getting my Masculine Cards built up again! Yay!

Hoping you can too!

Creating and Blessings to you ALL!

  1. Oh, LOVE this – great job on your mirror technique – I’ve only just figured out how to do it on the SAR, and I’m hooked, lol. Your color choices are so right here – great way to combine our two challenges! Yay, you! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!

  2. Great card, Cheryl! Congrats for your card being selected as one of the “top 3” for August at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday! Great use of both the reflection technqiue and the dimension without pop dots technique! -Donna
