Dude You’re Welcome to Play with the PPA

Dude You're Welcome, PPA

I was really quite excited to purchase Dude, You’re Welcome. And, honestly, my son seemed quite happy to receive it after it arrived. The problem is that he never used it. In my world, that is just not acceptable. A Stampin’ Up! product just can’t stay in its box that long! So, I challenged myself to see what I could do with it. My card will be entered into the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge this week, using Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz, and Basic Black. The stamp is from the kit and the DSP is the new Confetti Celebration – perfect for any “special occasion.”


Well, that was pretty for a girl but this set was made with men in mind, so I challenged myself to make a masculine card. With my son heading off to college this weekend, I wanted to make him a card. My only problem is how to fill in the blank:

Dude You're Welcome, Masculine


So, if you have any ideas, I would really appreciate you letting me know in a comment! Should I go mushy and say “love”? Or would it be better to say “miss”? Or should I say something else completely? Please, give me some ideas!!

  1. I love the cards. If you can fit it ‘ will miss’ would look good in the space. The new rotary stamp would work but not sure if the print matches.

  2. I like this set…hmmmm may have to do further research! You’re enabling me again Debbie.
    Is your son a mushy guy? Or like mine – lovable, caring, affectionate but not in public.
    For mine…I would put miss you, and inside get really mushy and gooey. BUT, don’t go overboard!! LOL

  3. With the rotary stamp….how about 4 words? “am so proud of”
    Now I have to go count to see if you can do that, lol.
    I love how you balanced the first card with candy dots….very nice!

  4. Debbie – Two wonderful cards with this kit! I like “adore”. Thanks for playing along with this week’s PPA challenge.

  5. Debbie, these are great cards! I am always in need of masculine card ideas. Thanks for joining us at Pals Paper Arts this week.

  6. Great man cards Debbie. I miss you…then a little bitty “already” at the bottom right if the focal point….

  7. Adorable cards, Debbie! I sent this set home with Brady. If I was making this card for Brady, I would just hand-print “fill in the blank” in the blank. Brady would find it humorous 🙂 Thanks for joining us this week!
