Hello and welcome to the Stampin’ Creative blog hop! You may have arrived from Eimear or started here, either way, I’m very glad you’ve stopped by. You’ll already have been inspired by Eimear’s projects, now grab a coffee and hop around with us for this month’s theme of “Made for Men”.
This month’s theme fits in very well with a challenge from Eimear, who is my upline as well as being a friend and another member of this blog hop! We were challenged to make a masculine card without using a masculine stamp set, which was a great challenge for me as I don’t actually have any overtly masculine stamp sets and was scratching my head for this!
My card also features a couple of new products from the upcoming annual catalogue as I couldn’t resist them!
The base is Early Espresso with a layer of Very Vanilla. I cut a piece of the new Wood Textures DSP stack into strips of differing widths and layered those together. I added a simple knotted piece of the new Copper Trim ribbon and adhered that to the DSP with snail. Next I created the glossy sentiment by rubbing embossing buddy over another piece of Very Vanilla, then stamping the sentiment stamps from Birthday Bright (retiring but still available) in Versamark followed by Early Espresso, adding clear embossing powder and heating. I love the effect that gives! I cut it out using the stitched framelit dies and popped it up with dimensionals.
