If there is one thing I can tell you about Jax & Millie, it's that they are not short on puppy toys! And, they play with every.single.one. I don't even know how they find the time between all the running and wrestling they do. I'm just thankful that they can keep themselves occupied without our constant attention or I would never have time to stamp. Prepping for today's Too Cool Team event has been challenging, even with the toys! Tonight's gathering will be their first chance to be around a large group of people. They are pretty friendly dogs, so I think they will be just fine…I'm just praying that they won't pee with excitement! We'll see!
Today, I'm sharing a couple of cards with the handsome new Truly Tailored set!
I always love it when there is a new masculine-themed set to play with, because the fact is, they are few and far between. The whole True Gentleman suite is sensational, not only for Father's Day, but for birthdays, sympathy and thinking of you cards. It's a nice change from the florals and flourishes!
Background Basics—I layered a 3-1/4" x 1-1/4" piece of the dotted True Gentleman Designer Series Paper along the top of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, and a 3-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of the bow tie True Gentleman DSP along the bottom.
Background Accents—I cut a fish-tail on the bottom of a 1-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Night of Navy cardstock to create a banner and adhered it to the center with SNAIL. I wrapped some Crumb Cake Classic Weave Ribbon around the seam of the DSP, and over the top of the banner, with the ends secured on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive. The whole thing is mounted onto a Night of Navy card base.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Truly Tailored sentiment diamond in Night of Navy ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then trimmed the image just outside the border. It's matted onto a Tranquil Tide Tailored Tag punch-out. I adore this new, classy shape and I'm so hoping that it sticks around after the Occasions Catalog is done in May. The sentiment is popped up over the ribbon with Dimensionals.

Too Cool—The second version begins with different patterns of the True Gentleman DSP, this time the navy dotted and Tranquil Tide stripes. They are mounted onto a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock. The banner is Tranquil Tide and I wrapped the layer with the cool new Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon—what a fun texture that is perfect for manly cards! It's all adhered to a Very Vanilla Thick card base.
Sentiment—I colored the sentiment directly on the rubber with Night of Navy & Tranquil Tide Stampin' Write Markers to get the two-color image. It's stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then die-cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and popped up with Dimensionals. I think this one is my favorite!
