Due to a lack of male themed papers I have had to resort to stamps today! This is an Art Impressions stamp and I coloured it with Copics, and fussy cut around the image. I broke a golden rule and coloured first, then had to hunt around for papers to match, luckily I had some stampin up papers which did the job. The sentiment is die cut from a Kaisercraft die,and I popped the image on the card with 3d foam pads.Til tomorrow when we will finish this very short male themed series!
These two cards were made with the same sheet of Stampin Up irresistably yours cardstock, but look so different. for the top card I sprayed the cardstock with dylusions sprays ( A tip – wait for one colour to dry before spraying the other colour – I learnt that one the hard way and ended up with a mud coloured mess!). then it was just a matter of some die cutting to finish. the bottom card is my first Christmas card for the year! I sponged this one with ink, and added a spellbinders die bauble and some sequins. I headed over to paper flourish today to get some papers for my next few classes, so will be busy this weekend coming up with some new cards and while I was there also managed to get the new range of graphic 45 gilded lily – it is gorgeous and I can’t wait to make some cards with it – classes first, then some palying. Thats my weekend sorted!Til tomorrow
This month Kaisercraft released a collection called Scrapyard – perfect male themed papers.Here is the first card I made with this paper . I punched out the flags with a stampin up punch,and the rest was just the papers . I added two linen thread bows,and a couple of little copper circle stickers on the collectable greeting. Must be off – a full day of work ahead of me..til tomorrow…..
I recently bought some male themed cards, and because of the ammount of Christmas cards i have had to make I really haven’t had time to experiment with them, but I did stamp each image to see how they turned out, so over the next couple of days you will see the rough workings! Todays stamp is a huge image – it takes up the whole card! the stamp is Stampers anonymous tim Holtz collection train. It stamps beautifully – lovely and crisp. I lightly coloured this one just with watercolour pencil, and die cut some corners using spellbinders lace doily accents dies. the ticket stamp is by Prima,and I distressed the edges, and added some bakers twine and string for texture.I stamped the image with stazon timber brown.Today is the end of the working week for me, so I am looking forward to 2 days off, and hopefully some time to create! Til tomorrow….
