Good afternoon, I am sitting here watching last nights Formula one’s race, and so far what a race it has been. I figured that I could also put together a quick post at the same time. I know I should be in my craft room creating but I figured I can do that tonight. I am still making my two secret sister swaps, one for ESAD and one for Crafters Anonymous, It’s amazing just how much time it takes to create a full project to send to someone. I know it’s a secret but I will post them once they are sent, and take the risk of them finding out who sent them, only because they do take a long time and I really like the finished product.
Now for today’s cards I have two masculine cards to share with you, well actually its four but two designs. The first card we made at Jacques house and the second one I re-created for my husbands fathers day card.
As you can see we have used the new stamp set called Best Dad Ever. We have then stamped on Basic Grey cardstock with Basic Black and cut them out and placed them back over the tie on the backing card. We have also stamped one out in Real Red and popped that out with dimensionals. We also got to play with the new embossing folder Stripes.
For the second card I have basically done the same card but a few changes due to not having the same stamp set and embossing folders. I have chosen not to put a sentiment on the front to keep it clean.
For the third card we also made this at class. This has a great technique on it. first you stamp in Versa Mark then in clear or white embossing powder. You then very lightly sponge around the image to bring the image off the page. We also stamped on Very Vanilla with Basic Black and cut out the sails and stuck them down on dimensionals. As you can see this is a tri-fold card, and very effect. We have used a small piece of the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon behind the image. The stamp on this one is from Seaworthy.
For the fourth card I have once again cased this card but with different stamps. I have used the retired stamp called Sail away. I am gutted this one has gone as I love using it. I also do not have any of that ribbon so I have used DSP instead. Rather than using DSP inside I have stamped the same image and left room to write a sentiment. This card I made for my father for Father’s Day.
