Masculine cards from last week

I had a lot of fun working on these masculine cards. I got some inspiration from Pinterest for them and I had the HARDEST time not to bling them up!

The first card was inspired by Lisa Young. It is Whisper White card stock layered with dimentionals on thick Whisper White card stock. The stamp sets are Work of Art and Traveler.

I first inked the larger watercolour stamp from Work of Art with Smokey Slate and spritzed the inked stamp with water. I used a little bit too much water on this card, but it turned out great anyways. I stamped the same stamp 3 times without re-inking it. Then I took the smaller watercolour stamp from the same set, inked it with Emerald Envy and spritzed it with water, and stamped it 3 times without re-inking it.

The camera is from the Traveler stamp set and it, as well as the sentiment from Work of Art, are stamped with Archival Basic Black. 

The second card is using 'Hardwood' and 'Stylized Birthday' stamp sets. The card base is Crumb Cake, the layer is Delightful Dijon and the top is Very Vanilla card stock. I made a template from printer paper (you need the layer to be thinner than card stock, so that you get a nice stamped background). I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting on that layer paper, and then tore it out, trying to keep the shape fairly rounded. Then I layered the template on the Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the Hardwood image with Mint Macaron ink. Then stamped the Stylized Birthday with Delightful Dijon. I used the 1/2" burlap ribbon and tied a knot half way, and adhered it to the back of the two layers.

The third card was inspired by Amanda Bates, and uses Wetlands stamp set and the card base is Crumb Cake, and the second layer is Whisper White. The top layer is from Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. The way you stamp this is you position your top piece (Serene Scenery) on top of the card base (leave the second layer of Whisper White out at the stamping point). Make sure you don't move your pieces while stamping the birds and the grass (you may want to use a small piece of snail tape to keep them together). The birds, the grass and the sentiment were stamped using Early Espresso. Once the images are stamped, layer the top piece on the Whisper White card stock and attache it with dimentionals on the card base.

My favourite card from this class
The fourth card is made on Crumb Cake card base and layered with Whisper White card stock. I first stamped the larger swirls from Swirly Bird stamp set using Crumb Cake ink. Then stamped the smaller swirls from the same set using Rich Razzleberry ink. The splatters are from the same stamp set and are stamped both with Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. The greeting is Stylized Birthday stamp and stamped with Early Espresso. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry from the 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalogue.

When we had the class, I offered the girls the option to use other colours than Rich Razzleberry. The ones I had matching ribbon were Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay. And everyone chose a different colour! I also made one using Bermuda Bay.
