This beauty is a design by Dee or Deelight in our SCS stamping group. I love, love, love this design, the colors, and the technique used to make this ultimately cool masculine card. The color is an awesome SU blue ink. Dee had some wonderful shiny silver designer paper, and that was put into a gears theme embossing folder, then swiped on the up-textured side with black ink. Very neat effect. Labels two Spellbinders was used, and then blue sponging around the stamped motorcycle image while the image was still inside the Spellbinders die! Then she tied a washer around the panel and added three silver brads. Very cool. Oh, and various gears where stamped on the background with white ink. Inside was a chain link stamp, and a You're the Best stamped image. Awesome! And Totally Rad!
This card was designed by Carol - a new Carol-haha! I think we have three now!
She used a fish stamp and embossed it after stamping in three different colors. Nice rounded corners, and a great theme for men!
This card was designed by Laurie. Laurie had some great old German music papers and I took the liberty to stamp in lightly direct to paper with the red ink pad. I also distressed the edges. The word Love was put on a Spellbinders die cut and brads were used to adhere it. Neat Date Stamp used for the theme. Nice black and white ribbon attached with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Fun valentine to give to a Guy!
This card was designed by JoAnn. She used the Tim Holtz theme embossing folders, and Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamps. I love her use of male patterned papers and distressing the embossed images and edging around the DP. Nice copper clasp holds the card in place and another sentiment is stamped inside.
This is the inside of JoAnn's card. (above).
Showing the cute little envelope and key that went along with Danette's design.
Below is my design for the swap. I simply used some cool DP I found at Archiver's something along the lines of a Pear Tree I think. All the paper designs looked masculine to me. Then I added Tim Holtz gears I embossed and cut out and then swiped with Distress Walnut Stain ink. The stamped images and sentiments are a Gears theme from Technique Tuesday. I attached the stamped image panel with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. Cuttlebug die cut corner. I also attached a little key from 7 Gypsies with Glossy Accents glue.
Thanks for looking at my Masculine Cards this week!
