Masculine Monday: One Wilde Ride

Happy Monday!  We're having a great time and I can't get over how beautiful and full of history everything thing is.  Today I decided to have a little Masculine Monday fun and use up some scrap pieces I had on my desk for this fun birthday card.  Dude cards tend to be a little more difficult but since I'm in a house full of guys I've embraced them.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Basic Black behind the Cajun Craze cardfront.  The cardfront was embossed with the Big Shot and Sparkle Embossing Folder.  Next I added a strip of Silver Foil that was embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder for that diamond plate look.

The stamped images are from the One Wild Ride stamp set and I used Whisper White, Island Indigo, and Crumb Cake for the different pieces.  I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the bottom greeting and dimensionals were used for both greeting pieces.

This stamp set as some great images that make for a fun card that definitely carries the "dude" vibe.

This Little Piggy Shaker Card Shenanigans

Good morning!  Today we're looking forward to a fun day outside of the city and traveling The Costa Brava and a midevil village, think it will be a lot of fun and also a little more relaxing that our arrival day which was so full.  Of course I couldn't leave you without a little inspiration so I'm sharing another card I made using the This Little Piggy Stamp set for On Stage, this time a shaker card.

I started with Tranquil Tide cardstock for the base and used Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper for the cardfront.  I used the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits to cut the whole in the cardfront as well as the Calypso Coral frame for the circle.  I used a Window Sheet to cover the circle and filled it with Iridescent SequinsFoam Adhesive Strips around the circle under the cardfront hold all the sequins in the window.  Before attaching the cardfront I wrapped a piece of Calypso Coral 1/8" Sheer Ribbon around it and tied a bow.  Dimensionals were used around all the corners to attach the cardfront so the whole piece is elevated evenly.

I watercolored the stamped image on Shimmery White cardstock using a Blender Pen, Watercolor Pencils and my classic ink pad.  After she was all colored I cut her out using the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes framelits and attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

Shaker cards are so much fun, you just want to play with them so they work perfect with the little pig to let someone know you're thinking of them.  Plus shaker cards looks really advanced so you'll impress the receiver and it's our little secret that they're really quite easy.

Fab Friday Color Sketch: Jar of Love

Good morning !  Summer is definitely the theme this week, which makes since as we're into the last few weeks of summer before the kiddos go back to school.  Today I decided to play along with the Fab Friday color challenge and make this fun card I could just drink up using the Jar of Love and Coffee Café stamp sets to make this fun lemonade drink (haha!)

I started with Whisper White think cardstock for the cardbase (I'm really loving this cardstock for the fresh clean look).  Then I added a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock as a matt for the Lemon Lime Twist cardfront.  On the cardfront I started by using the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party Decorative Masks for the fun textured back ground.

Now for the main image I started by stamping the jar outline from the Jar of Love stamp set in Basic Black and then stamped the ice cubes from the Coffee Café stamp set using Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with the Heat Tool and White Embossing Powder.  Next I used a sponge and Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo ink and sponged all over the jar to give the lemonade it's color before cutting it out with the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits.

I used Copper Embossing Powder to heat emboss the lid and then made a fun straw that was stamped and then cut out with the framelits so you can easily sip lemonade from the mason jar.  Dimensionals were used to pop the top of the jar up.

The greeting is stamped using the same Jar of Love stamp set and was cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and attached with dimensionals.  The final touch, adding some Melon Mambo enamel dots (from the Brights Enamel Shapes).

This card is so yummy it just makes me want to drink it, haha! and I love stretching the use of stamps for other than their first thought.
