New mens card!

img_3292-medium I have a couple of Mens cards to show, so today we will start off with the side stepper card I made with some new dies from a new company, Paper rose. They are a South Australian company, and I couldn’t wait to try out the tool dies and the pegboard die. They cut beautifully, and I will be adding some more of their dies to my growing collection! The instruction for my side stepper card is on my You tube channel, you can find the link on the right hand side of my blog.The sentiment is a kaisercraft die, and the rest is just strips of cardstock to mimic the tool drawers. Til tomorrow….

male stamped cards

The stamp on these cards is by Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection and it’s called Clockwork.It stamps really well, and it’s got lots of lovely detail.To this I have added watch parts,tim holtz ideology sprockets, bakers twine, spellbinders sprightly sprockets, and a cuttlebug clockworks embossing folder.The card on the left is a little messier deliberately because I stamped splodges on it and distressed it ,just as a “lets see what else we can do”kind of a mission! Had a lovely afternoon today, with my sisters and a small group of friends, trying out an idea to set up a social card making group. We all had a great time, and we will repeat it again at the beginning of the year, and invite a few more ladies.Til tomorrow….

Stamped train Card

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….
