Archive for the ‘Masculine/Father’s Day’ Category


A big congrats to Aimeslee, the newest Featured Stamper (FS746) on Splitcoast. She has a lovely gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout (for the most part) & the embossed bg, but I used different dies, colors & a different embossing folder. 

For my Father’s Day card, I started by die cutting all the tool in red & mirror silver then putting them together. The jeans pocket & bg are some really old dp I had & it was a little too gray, so I sponged on some blue ink. For the pocket, I cut it first w/ a stitched square then took an angled border die across the bottom. I used a gold gel pen to create the “thread” stitching & added a piece of cardboard under the pocket & tucked the tools inside. The measuring tape is a piece of twill ribbon that I used a red Copic to color. The silver bg was embossed w/ a metal plate folder & I used a dk gray Copic to add some antiquing to it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC793) today, we have 2 blues & a red. Perfect colors for a Patriotic card! 

I’m using a new soldiers silhouette image. I know these will look great as a dark silhouette, but I wanted to see how they’d look if I used another (inked) image to ink them. It’s an old technique called “stamp kissing“. I used the stars & stripes border to ink the silhouettes (I put them in my Misti so I could do it more than once). I like how they turned out..as if they’re draped in the stars & stripes. I separated the greeting, above & below, & used the same inks to stamp them. The piece down the side is a piece of sticky back paper w/ red, white & blue narrow strips stuck to it. The lower section has stars stamped w/ white. Just to add a little something extra, I also punched some stars & added them to the soldiers & also a couple on the bg.

 

On the inside I stamped the stars & stripe border onto a sort of triangular piece & added it down the left side.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
