Well Suited Suite - Stampin' Up! Great for Masculine cards and many more.

Fear not my creative friends! The Well Suited Suite is here (side note the stamp set and dies are in the new Annual catalogue as well but not the bundle nor the coordinating goodies) for a little longer, and it's the perfect solution we've been searching to find for those hard-to-create masculine cards. This suite is ideal for masculine birthdays, Father's day, and a few more unexpected uses, too.

The Handsomely Suited stamp set has a combination greetings and images that are great as focal images, accents, or stamped backgrounds. The Suit & Tie Dies take this bundle over the top with dies that coordinate with the stamps and a whole set of pieces to mix n' match to create shirts, vests, or suit jackets. Pair the stamps and dies with the handsome patterns of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and you have a top-notch combination.


Obviously, the shirts and suits you'll build with this set are going to be a hit, but what about using the suit dies with Basic White to create a lab coat, or with Night of Navy to create scrubs cards for your favourite nurse.  Use it to create wedding cards with black tuxedos and move the "V" of the jacket dies up to create a V-neck wedding dress with embossed Basic White cardstock and Pearl Jewel details.

The possibilities really are endless. I look forward to seeing what you create with this unique set!

Check out this card from The January - June mini catalogue The suite was used with a few extra supplies to creates layers of texture with stamped images, a popped-up frame technique, twine, and stamped Designer Series Paper.

2) Stamp tie image from Handsomely Suited stamp set across the Night of Navy 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" cardstock with Night of Navy ink. Rotate the image 180 degrees each time. You can start in the center and work out or start at one edge and work your way across the card.

3) Use the 4-5/16" x 3" Stitched Rectangle die to die cut a rectangle from the center of the stamped cardstock. This die created stitching on either side of the die cut rectangle.

Adhere or knot the ends on the back of the cardstock. Adhere inside the coordinating frame, like a puzzle piece, but popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
