Happy Monday crafty friends! Are you ready for a great week here at Inspired by Stamping? I have a video coming on Wednesday! Whoo Hoo! Today, Jo and Lisa are sharing gorgeous Masculine cards using our Australian bird stamp set. Let’s get started with a gorgeous card by Jo!
To make this card I have created my own background using the Background Basics Lines stampset. The ink colour combination to for the plaid background used is Butter Bar, Orange Soda, Soft Granite & Cup O’Joe.
Cardstock colour combination is Naturals Ivory (Base), Daffodil delight , Smokey Slate and Very Vanilla (Centre Panel).
The Kookaburra image & sentiment has been stamped with Chestnut Roan.
To embellish the card I have used a daffodil delight stitched grosgrain ribbon and brads.
I hope this inspires you to create your background as an added feature on your cards.
Next up we have a fabulous pop-out swing card by Lisa! This is such a great masculine card! Here she is!
Hi Everyone! Today I have a fancy-fold card using the Kookaburra image from the new release Australian Birds stamp set.The images in this set make it easy to create masculine cards!
Take a look at my pop-out swing card:
The Kookaburra image was stamped in dye ink, then colored with pencils and baby oil. I die-cut the image and lightly sponged it. After die-cutting the opening, I embossed the front of the card with a wood grain embossing folder. The same die was used for the matting layer of the stamped image.
Now you can see the pop-out swing part:
I used two sentiments from Teeny Tiny Greetings. This set is full of sentiments that can be used alone or combined, as I did today.
The card is a standard 5½ x 4¼. The card stock for the inside was cut at 5 x 6 and scored at 2 and 4. Adhere the right panel, fold the card closed, then adhere the stamped/matted piece through the front opening.
Until next time…
This weekend we had a very spontaneous moment and decided to hop on our boat and spend the night with the kids. We had a beautiful weekend. A much needed one too. Here are a few photos…
Because of our spontaneity, I missed our Sunday Designer Feature. So I would like to add them here. Our designers created such lovely cards this weekend. Please take a moment to see what they have created this week.
We will be back tomorrow with beautiful Pansies cards by Irit & Vicki! See you tomorrow! Have a wonderful Monday! xx
