Happy Monday! It was another beautiful weekend hear and we were able to take advantage and enjoy some family time and relaxing (I didn't get enough crafting time but that's OK). Today over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog it's Masculine Monday and we're sharing some great ideas for the dude's in your life. I had to use the Yee-Haw Photopolymer stamp set for today's card (it's so fun). I started with Crumb Cake for the cardbase and then added a layer of Lost Lagoon that I embossed with the Big Shot and Woodgrain Embossing Folder (I sponged all over this layer with Crumb Cake ink to help the embossing really pop).
I took a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and stamped the barb wire image all over using Cajun Craze Ink before distressing the edges with the Stampin' Distress Tool and then sponging all over the cardstock with the same Crumb Cake Ink. For the main stamped image I stamped the lasso using Soft Suede ink and the "Howdy" is Cajun Craze. I used Paper Snips to cut around the image and then sponged around the rope with Crumb Cake ink (sensing a theme??). I added a few pieces of Linen Thread for a fun accent.
I make a couple cute accents including the horse shoe (Soft Suede Paper and ink) and the cowboy hat (Crumb Cake Paper, Soft Suede ink and Lost Lagoon Marker for the hat band) before cutting them out with Paper Snips and attaching them to the cardfront with dimensionals. The greeting was stamped with Lost Lagoon ink, punched out with the Modern Label Punch and then sponged around the edges with Cajun Craze ink and dimensionals help it pop off the page.
This set is so fun to play with and has lots of great images for all sorts of projects, give it a try!
