Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop – Masculine Cards

Welcome back, Kre8tors! Today we are hopping with the International Ink. Stamp. Share. Monthly Blog Hop and today’s theme is Masculine! I hope you enjoyed Linda’s wonderful project and be sure to scroll down to that next button to hop on over to Deb’s blog for some awesome inspiration! I’m really excited about this theme because I don’t often think to make cards for the guys in my life, but I always seem to need them! I was so excited to play with the Painted Seasons stamp set so I decided to use the pinecone and fern from the set on my card.

I knew I wanted to use some of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on this masculine card, and I had lots of scraps! So I decided to cut up 4 different patterns and use them as panels in the background.

I stamped the pinecones and fern from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration set, and cut them out by hand, also known as fussy cutting. I love how detailed this stamp set looks! I stamped the ‘Thanks’ from the Thankful Thoughts set that can be found in the Annual Catalog.

I popped up all the panels using dimensionals, a LOT of dimensionals. Watch the video to see just how many I used! I finished it all off with some Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake and boom! Done! This was a fast and simple masculine card!

Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop with Lots of Lavender

I am so excited to be part of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop this month! It’s my first month in this hop, and I am surrounded by so many wonderfully talented ladies. This month’s theme was The Sale-A-Bration Continues, with a color challenge! We were challenged to only use colors from this color palette:

I chose to use the set Lots of Lavender, and I added an additional challenge for myself, to make this card masculine! I think it turned out pretty well, what do you think?

I love how the Linen Thread adds a fun accent behind the sentiment. I used Thoughtful Banners for my Happy Father’s Day sentiment, but there are so many great projects you can do with just the Lots of Lavender set!

I also love how the lavender bunch is a 2-Step Stamp, with the main outline and accompanying solid bow, leaves, and stem. I have a special trick for stamping the leaves and stem at the same time that you can see in my video below.

Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post and click the Next button to continue this awesome hop! There are so many wonderful projects to see from the members of the ICS Blog Hop!

Petal Palette Bundle Reverse Negative Card

I went live over on my Facebook page for the first time in a little while to make up for the Stamping Saturday that I missed at the beginning of the month. I featured my favorite bundle of the Occasions catalog, Petal Palette (of course! lol) I used the negative images that I cut out using the coordinating thinlits dies and made this fun reverse negative card!

I really love how this card turned out! The colors I used are Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist. They compliment each other so well, and the contrast is sharp but appealing. For the sentiment I used Whisper White cardstock along with the label framelit from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I trimmed the label slightly so that you would be able to see the trellis cutout behind.

I also used some of our Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon and layered our Whisper White Organza Ribbon over the top for added texture. A few pearls adorn the sentiment, and boom! Done!

Measurements:

Night of Navy Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Lemon Lime Twist Inside Mat: 4-3/16″ x 5-7/16″
Whisper White Scrap for Sentiment
Lemon Lime Twist Scrap for Trellis

Petal Palette Masculine Card

Almost ALL of my cards are usually pretty feminine, but I was pretty proud of myself when I came up with a masculine card for Petal Palette.
I think one of the biggest reasons I think this is a great guy card is the Night of Navy cardstock.
I’m sure that if I were to make this with, say, Berry Burst it would be another story.

I really like how the Linen Thread is looped behind the sentiment and how easy it was to shorten the label that comes in the thinlits that coordinate so perfectly with this stamp set! The branches are so beautiful and contrast nicely on the Crumb Cake cardstock.

So many times I often forget to give the inside of my cards lovin’ too, but not on this card! I made sure to use one of the gorgeous sentiments from this stamp set on the inside of my card.

Measurements:

Night of Navy Cardbase: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, score @ 4-1/4″
Crumb Cake Outside Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Very Vanilla Inside Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Christmas Pines Masculine Card

Hello Kre8tors! Here’s a super quick Masculine Christmas Card featuring the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. I really like the simplicity of this card, and the layout on this card is one I’m using as a challenge in my VIP Stamp Lounge, exclusive to my customers. This was a quick card and would make a great mass production card for Christmas cards this year. I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
