I created this card for a “Manly Cards Class” I taught at Michaels. Tim Holtz stamps are perfect for this theme, and a little retro paper from BoBunny’s Mama-razzi Collection really set the “manly” tone I needed. Buttons & twine, my new favorite choices for embellishment – especially for male flavored cards! I’m going to enter this card in Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Blog Contest too (Transport-it is the theme). (more…)
I love to use Distressed Inks with stencils and resists, and the Distressed Markers with images like this balloon. And tying in the American Craft string with the strings of the balloon gives this card a bit of texture, along with the button and rhinestones. Fun to make! I’ll be entering this card into Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Blog Contest theme of Transportation.
This card is a combination of Rangers Distressed Inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, an Inkadinkado stamp (bird) and Papertrey Ink’s “Life is Sweet” stamp & die set. I love the combination of colors and 3-D effects, lush like a garden in full bloom.
