With a Cherry on Top

Sometimes I forget about creating masculine cards. Actually, I TOTALLY forget to do it. How about you?

Which is why I like to do #MASCULINEMONDAYS because our fathers, brothers, sons, and significant others deserve a little love too!!!

Here is a simple card that looks quite complicated, but the COOL TREATS stamp set and the coordinating FROZEN TREATS FRAMELITS DIES make it easy. The colors used are Whisper White, Real Red, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, & Chocolate Chip. Silver Foil card stock, Tasty Treats DSP (designer series paper) & Copper Metallic Thread add something extra…don’t you think?!? I also absolutely LOVE using the STITCHED SHAPES FRAMELITS DIES when cutting out the greeting!!

20170522_120941Randomly stamping the sprinkles on your card stock creates your own background.  A great tip when working with thread is to put a piece of TEAR & TAPE ADHESIVE on the back of your paper…that way you can make your loops and swirls EXACTLY where you want them.  20170522_121503 Using the Stampin’ Up! markers are great when you are needing to color something.  The cherry stem & the greeting were both colored with markers.

Masculine Mondays

Here is another instalment of Masculine Mondays. The cards shown here can be used for the men in our life life for birthdays, graduations, thank you cards and just because I care… because they need to be shown little love too!

Are you ready for fun card which is perfect for celebrating any occasion worth celebrating? I mean really, how can you not be ready to have some fun when you see balloons, right? I used the Ballon Pop-Up Thinlets die to create the focal point for this fun shaker card.

When you use the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Die, it makes assembly even easier. All you have to do is cut out the cardstock for the inside of your card, and position the thinlit die in the center. There is a “point” on the thinlit die, to show you where to position the die to the center. Then it cuts out all pieces, and even does the score lines for you. I made it happen on the very first try. The stamp set itself is good for all ages.

There is even a greeting that says “Open me Already”, you could use this on gift tags for both birthdays and Christmas. The greetings in this set are split up, so that you can use different wording each time. For example, one time you could say “The best is yet to come, let’s celebrate” or the next time you could say “The best is yet to come, Party On” The balloons that are in this stamp set, also co-ordinate with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, so lots of uses with this card, for young and old.

The NAILED IT Stamp Set & BUILD IT Framelits go together like a hot cup of coffee & a banana nut muffin! I am absolutely living this combo!!!

Glossy White cardstock is the perfect background to create this watercolor wash!!! You can use one color, as I did here, or multiple colors for your background. The amazing thing is each time you do this it will look different! Using White Embossing powder brings or the details in the hammers. I know this is a masculine card, but I couldn’t resist some ribbon & a little bling too!

Masculine Monday – Belated

It had been such a crazy & busy couple of days  I completely forgot it was Monday!!! That means I didn’t get a chance to share with you my lighthouse.  I really like this stamp set, HIGH TIDE! It reminds me of the trip we took this summer to Connecticut & our weekend stay at Cape Cod.

fb_img_1485926061986

The two-step stamping technique was used to create the shading on the lighthouse. I really enjoy the depth that you get when you use the a 2-Step stamping technique.  And what makes it even better is the Stampin’ Piercing Mat.

20170130_093445

The great thing about this card and the greeting inside is that it can be used for anything!!! Birthdays, congratulations, thinking of you or just because… the possibilities are endless! And just because I posted this on ‘Masculine Monday’, doesn’t mean that it would only have to be used for the man in your life. I choose colors that were deep and rich such as Not Quite Navy, Real Red, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight and for just a touch of subtleness, Crumb Cake.

Do you see the tone on tone stamping with the birds in the water on the Not Quite Navy cardstock? That effect is very subtle but it gives depth to the card!

fb_img_1485877913272fb_img_1485877924757

There are a few steps,  and it looks very complicated…but it is very easy! I put this card together in about 10 minutes!!! Aanndddd HERE IT IS….THE FINISHED CARD INSIDE & OUT.

Welcome to the first installment of MASCULINE MONDAYS!!! I’ve noticed that the guys in our lives seem to be left out quite often when we are making cards. So with that in mind, every Monday I will show you a new masculine card that you can use for Birthday cards, Thank You cards, or Thinking of You cards…because our fathers, brothers, sons, and significant others deserve a little love too!!!

Here is a simple card that looks quite complicated due to the layered squares. It features a very versatile stamp set LOVELY AS A TREE and the ‘Happy Birthday’ is from BALLOON CELEBRATION. The colors used are Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Basic Black.

You can purchase the stamp sets & papers used and many other crafting items on my site listed below. Use this host code — AVSSTKSR — when you order.
