Hello Crafty Friends,

It is Friday!!  Yeah!  It has been a long week.

Today I am sharing another masculine card I created for my card classes this month.






This card was fun.  I started with a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then die cut a piece of Good Life prints with Journey Ovals to make the neckline.
I cut a small square from the same pattern paper to make the pocket.  I added a piece of Chambray Shirt Cardstock cut in a small square to be used as a handkerchief.
I then die cut the bow from the Create a Mini Bow die set out of Chambray Shirt Cardstock.    I added this to the card.
I chose not to put a sentiment, so that I could add it later.

All supplies are from Spellbinders/FSJ and can be purchased here.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have a masculine card to share with you today.


I think of trucks when I think of masculine cards.  So, I had to make a card with a truck.

The card base is made with Butter Cream Cardstock and a piece of pattern paper I had in my stash.  I then die cut a circle from River Stone Cardstock and Butter Cream cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Inside Out with River Stone ink.
I stamped the truck from Hit the Road stamp set on Haystack Cardstock with Dark Roast ink.   I added the truck to the card with foam squares.
I finished the card with little black stones and tied a Natural Journey Twine bow.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except for the stones and the pattern paper, and can be purchased here

The theme this month is masculine and I couldn't keep this stamp set out of the mix.

The card base is made of Whip Cream Cardstock, with a layer of RSVP Prints and a layer of Playful Prints Pattern Paper.  I then die cut the oval with Journey Ovals and Whip Cream Cardstock.

I used the stamp set Peony Blooms for this card.  I stamped the small peony flower with Rustic Rose ink around the white cardstock that I then die cut with the Journey Ovals, with the Peaches and Cream Cardstock to make the window.
I then attached the Whip Cream Cardstock and Peaches and Cream Cardstock together.  Then, I started to make my shaker sandwich.

2. Acetate
3. Foam tape
4. Cardstock
I used some sequins from the Sunrise Mix for the shaker part.
I then stamped the big peony flower image on Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink, die cut it with the matching die set and colored the image with the Color Burst Pencils.
To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Peony Blooms stamp set with River Stone ink on the Peaches and Cream Cardstock and added that to the card.

Now on to the card I created for today:


I have been loving make shaker cards this month and today I have another one, but with a twist.  I made it into a double shaker card.

If you have never made a shaker card before it is very fun.   

The standard layers of a shaker card are:
1. cardstock
2.acetate
3. Foam squares or strips are easier
4. Add your "sprinkles"
5. Another piece of Cardstock.  In the case of this card, I used another piece of acetate.

When finished, I had something that looked like this:


I then added the square icon from Doodlebug inside the card.

 
To finish the card, I added the sentiment on the front stamped with Black Licorice on Pool Play cardstock.
I hope you will try this type of card soon.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have a card today that has no stamping.  I know this is not an "usual" card because we always use stamps, but I think you are going to like this.


I started with a piece of Good Life paper with the pink flowers.  I added a strip of the gingham paper and adhered it to the first piece.   I then wrapped and tied a bow with Whip Cream Thread.
I then die cut the word Hello with the Hugh Hello Die out of Rustic Rose Cardstock.  I glued this down to the card panel.  I then added 3 pearls to the bottom corner.
Lastly, I added the panel to the Whip Cream card base with foam squares.
