1 Comment

IMG_9389 (Medium)While on the theme of all things male, here is a quick card I made using Simple Stories patterned paper and some stampin up cardstock.A bit of fussy cutting of the elements from the papers, and just layered it all together – a very quick and easy card as everything is there for you on the papers! Til tomorrow….

teen Male card….


IMG_3696 (Medium)Today I have my mind on young male cards as I have to make one for my nephews birthday, so thought I would post one I made earlier! I used Kaisercraft Attitude paper for the background, and stamped ( Deep Red stamp company) a drum set and just highlighted the image with a gold pen.A bit of paper piercing, and hand sewing and some assorted twine to finish. The nephew in question is not a drummer, so this one won’t do for him, so it’s back to the craft room for me! til tomorrow….

Masking – An Experiment…

Leave a comment

IMG_2956 (Medium)A bit of an experiment today – I thought I would try my hand at using a mask. This one is a kaisercraft cogs mask which I inked over with distress inks and a sponge.The paper is from Kaisercraft Attitude 6″ pad, and I die cut some more cogs using my spellbinders sprightly sprockets die. I painted them with Viva silver metallic paint,and used craftworks candii on them when I had affixed them to the card ( look like brads don’t they!) I distressed and inked all edges of the card, and finished with a stampin up sentiment.I also had quite a mess to clean up afterwards, but thoroughly enjoyed myself making this teen boys card!Til tomorrow….

IMG_8681 (Medium)On my recent cleaning up foray, I stumbled upon a Kaisercraft 6″ pad that I hadn’t used yet – it’s called Attitude,and it’s perfect for teen boy cards, so before I put it away I quickly made this card. I stamped some Bitty Grunge stamps by Stampers Anonymous on the grid paper, and cut a tag and stamped it too, matted everything with black cardstock and added a tim Holtz sprocket gear and game spinner to attach the tag to the card. Maybe this weekend I will have an oppurtunity to make some cards with this pad!  Til tomorrow…

Simple Stories Awesome 7

Leave a comment

This is the last male card that I will show for a little while – we will have a break from mens cards tomorrow. The paper is Simple Stories Awesome, and I used the 12 x 12 sheets. All the images were on the sheets, it was just a matter of cutting out the bits that I wanted. The stars are from the matching sticker sheet, and I distressed and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz rusty Hinge ink. The cardstock is Stampin Up Cajun craze. Tomorrow something girly! Til tomorrow….

Simple stories awesome 5

O.K. – I have lost track of the number in this series so I am calling it number 5…. The paper is Simple Stories Awesome, and here I have combined it with my Lacey Pennant spellbinders for the banner across the top, and I used a matching border sticker across the bottom. I stuck on a couple of Tim Holtz idea -ology sprocket gears, and distressed and inked all the edges.I taught a class over at paper flourish today – always enjoy my time with my ladies – and while there saw the new graphic 45 papers – a ladies diary collection – and couldn’t resist buying lots of it so tonight I am hoping tto spend a little time in the craft room creating with it – Til tomorrow….
