I love creating masculine cards! When I saw the SU In the Meadow stamp set- I knew I had to have it! I am sure you all peruse Pinterest as I do when I get a new stamp. I came across this card and liked how Lisa used circles to highlight the images and used the Work of Art stamp set to “color” the images of the trees and deer.
I modified my card by creating a mountainous background, adding an Early Espresso border on the deer image, embellishing it with Burlap and a candy dot, and using the SU Guy Greetings on the bottom of the card. My stamping classes chose between the Happy Father’s Day greeting or the Happy Birthday Greeting. We even conserved paper by cutting our circles (2″ and 2 1/2″) out of the Very Vanilla border on the front that is covered by the Crumb Cake card stock the mountains and greeting are stamped on:) Thankfully, both stamp sets are sticking around!
I used Soft Suede ink for the mountains, trees, deer, and greeting on the card. I stamped off once and then stamped the colors Tip Top Taupe and Wild Wasabi on the stamped images on the circles. The second stamp on the images was stamped again with that same “stamped off” ink so it was essentially stamped off twice.
I saw this t-shirt at Walmart for $4.98 last week, and bought it as a joke for my dear hubby. His famous line is…”Welcome to the Gun Show” as he flexes his muscles at our two grown-up 6 foot plus sons…LOL.
So, when I peered at one of my favorite stamp sets, SU Guy Greetings, and spied the muscleman, I thought “PERFECT” for his t-shirt.
I used the new SU Guy Greetings stamp set with Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, and Very Vanilla cardstock. I die cut my letters with the Little Letters Thinlits and then dry embossed them with the retired SU Lattice folder. I admit I took a little liberty with the sketch but was inspired by Nicole’s CAS sketch. Who doesn’t still say this when they need to screw/unscrew something or turn on/off the garden hose?
1. Create a project for “Father’s Day or that special guy in your life.”
2. Create a project with “Stamping on anything other than Card Stock.”
3. Mash it Up! and create a “Father’s Day project with Stamping on anything but Card Stock.”
I am sorry I did not mash it up this week but I did get the Father’s Day card done and ready for my dad! (By the way, my mom did get her Mother’s Day card after all- she just forgot she put it away to save it!- Silly girl)
I used the SU In the Wild stamp set- I had my eye on it for quite some time and finally got it. It is a lovely sketchy lined stamp but needs something to go with it. I saw a few people watercoloring around it and thought the new SU Work of Art stamp set could do the job for me! So I inked it up with Wild Wasabi, then Crumb Cake, and finally Soft Sky to mimic the ground, the animal, and the sky. Then I stamped the moose in Chocolate Chip ink.
I finished it off with some matching banners stamped from the SAB 2014 Banner Blast set. I am so happy there are two other sets set called Banner Banter and Itty Bitty Baby in the new catalog that coordinate with the cute little banner punch. I also embellished the banners with some random metal brads.
The photopolymer sentiment came from the May Paper Pumpkin- another stamp that came with it has Happy Birthday on it. We made this card in class and both sentiments were used by my gals.
I really hope you find time to play along with the Friday Mashup this week! Make sure to check out what the Design Team has created for inspiration.
I made this Father’s Day card for my hubby. I have had this Flourishes Menswear stamp for many years and thought it was perfect for the masculine theme at The Paper Players # 146. I used a scrap of striped patterned paper, some random “Eggplanty” colored cardstock, SU Certainly Celery and Almost Amethyst cardstock, and Cuttlebug embossing folders. I really liked how the shirt turned out using black embossing powder and the little brads for buttons:)
