Masculine Ideas

Mountain Air Meets Rectangle Postage Punch

Rectangle Postage Punch

I made this birthday card for Dale, our neighbor and good friend.

I used the stamp set Mountain Air which is perfect for our location in the mountains of southern Colorado.

I paired it with the Rectangular Postage Punch for something a little different.

To make this card, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 2" x 4 1/4".

I stamped the trees first towards the bottom of the card front using Old Olive ink.

Then, I stamped the mountains using Misty Moonlight ink.

To fill in the area between the trees and the mountains, I inked up the bottom of the tree stamp, turned it upside down, off stamped, then stamped to just get the landscape.

After the stamping was done, I punched out 3 panels using the Rectangular Postage Punch, then mounted them on a piece of Old Olive matting.

The greeting comes from Blossoms in Bloom and was stamped on a Very Vanilla card front using Misty Moonlight ink and the Stamparatus.

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Mountain Air, Blossoms in Bloom

Ink: Old Olive, Misty Moonlight

Paper: Misty Moonlight, Very Vanilla, Old Olive

Accessories: Rectangle Postage Punch, Stamparatus, enamel dots

Crafting with Aluminum Cans-Bell's Two Hearted Ale

Two Hearted Ale Card

Two hearted pale ale canThe can before I cut it down to create the card.

One of my favorite crafting techniques is to cut shapes out of aluminum cans and add them to my card creations.

You can view my aluminum can creations HERE

(Instructions and a link to a video tutorial on how to cut the cans can be found on this page)

I'm always on the look out for interesting designs and colors on aluminum cans.

Fortunately, my husband is a craft beer drinker and is always bringing home new beers to try.  Often, these beers have interesting labels on the cans. 

My husband drinks the beer, then I confiscate the cans to create!

Recently, he tried Two Hearted Ale from Bell's Brewery in Michigan with this cool fish image on the cans.

This is a perfect image for creating those masculine-themed cards!

I made this card for the husband of a friend of mine who recently passed away.

He is about to put their house up for sale, then leave Colorado for Mississippi.

When asked what he was going to do in Mississippi, he said " I'm going to live with my son, and we're going fishing!"

I thought this card would be perfect for him as just a thinking of you card.

This was simple card to make as I matted the image cut from the can using Pumpkin Pie card stock, then to Mossy Meadow, and finally to a Basic Black card base.

I secured the edges by punching holes using my Crop-a-dile, then inserted retired glimmer brads in the 4 corners.

The possibilities are endless!

Country Road Father's Day

Father's day

I created this weathered barn card for my Dad for Father's Day using the retired Country Road stamp set.

This look could also be achieved using the Geared Up Garage stamp set, creating an old garage using the car, tool box, and gas can images.

My Dad is not really a garage guy.  He's more of a weathered barn in the country guy!

The sides of the barn were aged by swiping Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay inks on the inside of the Hardwood Planks Embossing Folder, then adding a piece of Crumb Cake card stock and running it through the Big Shot to emboss.

To age it a little more, I lightly spritzed it with water and crumbled it into a ball.  I opened it up,  swiped White Craft ink on the creases, and set it aside to dry.

For the roof, I made a quick template, out of computer paper.  I cut out the template, placed it on a piece of Copper Foil paper and traced around the template with a pencil. I then cut it out using a pair of scissors.  I embossed it using my Big Shot and Corrugated Embossing Folder.  Once embossed, I scored 1 1/2" from the top and folded it along the score line.  The roof was attached to the card front using Dimensionals.  To age the roof, I ran a sanding block over it.

The weeds were stamped on Pear Pizzazz card stock using Mossy Meadow and Call me Clover inks.  They were fussy cut using a pair of scissors.

The wagon wheel was stamped on Crumb Cake card stock using Early Espresso ink.  It too was fussy cut using a pair of scissors.

Once the pieces were attached to a Soft Suede mat and a Very Vanilla card base, I stamped the greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings on a piece of Soft Suede card stock that had been embossed using the Hardwood Planks embossing folder.  I attached it to a small piece of Copper Foil paper that had also been embossed using the Corrugated Embossing Folder, and was roughed up using the sanding block.

I think my Dad will like the card!

Mountain Air Thinking of You

Mountain air sympathy thinking of youI guess as I get older, more and more friends I know are losing parents and loved ones.

So sad, but, unfortunately, a way of life.

This is the card I created to send to a friend after the death of a brother (non Corona Virus related.)

I hope it brought some comfort.

I stamped layers of mountains using the Mountain Air stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Very Vanilla card stock full strength and again without reinking.

The trees were stamped in Basic Gray ink and cut out using the Big Shot and coordinating Majestic Mountain die.

The tree was cut out of Basic Black card stock using the Big Shot and Majestic Mountain die, and was attached using a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.

The greeting comes from Sincere Salutations, a retired set in my stash that I still use often.

Mountain Air Sending Prayers

Sending prayers

Unfortunately, I needed to send out a sympathy card to the family of a neighbor who passed away recently.

The images in the Mountain Air stamp set and coordinating Majestic Mountain Dies are perfect for our setting here in the mountains of southern Colorado.

You  can view more of my Mountain Air creations HERE.

To create the mountain scene, I started with the background on watercolor paper using Pacific Point, Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, and Crushed Curry inks swiped on using an aqua painter.

I heat embossed the detail mountain image using white embossing powder on Night of Navy and Seaside Spray card stock for the first two layers of mountains.  For the third layer, I stamped Blueberry Bushel ink on Whisper White card stock.

The treeline and landscape were embossed on Garden Green card stock.

The two trees were cut out of Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz card stock and added to the front to give a little more dimension.

I cut the gears out of Copper Foil Paper using my Big Shot and Gears Dies. 

I attached it to a piece of Copper Foil Paper using Tombow Mutli-purpose Glue. Then, I cut out a heart using my Big Shot and Hearts Die.

I used the next larger heart to cut out a heart out of Basic Black card stock, then embossed it using the Corrugated Embossing Folder.

The greeting is from an older Paper Pumpkin kit, Filled with Love.

I heat embossed it on the Copper Foil Paper card front using black embossing powder.

Northern Lights Background

Northern LightsRecently, I shared a card inspired by the optical phenomenon, Light Pillars. 

This happens when light is refracted by ice crystals.

I used this photo taken of light pillars as the inspiration to make my own.

Light pillars

The card above was my first go at it.

While I really like how it turned out, I think it is more of a Northern Lights Background than a Light Pillars Background.

So, I kept at it, coming up and sharing a Light Pillar card HERE.

For the Northern Lights card, I sponged Poppy Parade, Highland Heather, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green, and Pretty Peacock inks onto my Shimmery White card front.  I sponged up from the bottom where the landscape is so my colors would be more even as I got to the top.

The sky was sponged on using Night of Navy, Basic Black, and Whisper White Craft inks.

Supplies Used:

Ink: Poppy Parade, Highland Heather, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green, and Pretty Peacock, Night of Navy, Basic Black, Whisper White Craft

Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Shimmery White, Basic Black

Accessories: sponges, Big Shot, Snow Globe Scenes Die, Mini Dimensionals

The sky was sponged using Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Basic Black, metallic copper, and Whisper White Craft (like a Northern Lights background.)

The card front is Shimmery White matted to Gold Foil.  The trees are from Snow Globe Scenes Dies

Supplies Used:

Paper: Whisper White, Gold Foil, Shimmery White, Basic Black

Paper Towel Background-Winter Woods

Paper towel background winter woods

Recycle and reuse!

I always try to use the paper towels in my crafting that I've used to blot the color from Pigment Sprinkles, watercolor, or after cleaning stamps.

That was the case with this card.

I incorporated the paper towel I used to blot the Pigment Sprinkles from this Winter Woods card HERE.

I separated the plys, using 1 and saving the other for another creation.

I glued it to a piece of Whisper White card stock, then cut it down to the size I needed.

The trees were cut out of Early Espresso card stock using my Big Shot and In the Woods Die.

I added the Early Espresso landscape, also cut out using the In the Woods Die.

The greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings stamped in Early Espresso ink using the Stamparatus.

Emboss Resist Winter Woods

Embos resist pigment sprinkles

Winter Woods is one of my favorite stamp sets. 

This grove of trees is perfect for my setting in the mountains of southern Colorado.

For these cards I used the Emboss Resist Technique.

Stamp the image in Early Espresso and heat emboss using clear embossing powder.

Then, add color to the background.  The ink will resist where the image has been embossed.

For the first card, I sponged on Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, and Calypso Coral inks on Shimmery White card stock.

For the second card, I added Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles.

I added Copper Foil landscape cut using the Big Shot and In the Woods Die.

The greeting comes Itty Bitty Greetings and was heat embossed with copper embossing powder.

Incredible White Masking Winter Woods

Masking winter woods

Masking winter woods in blues and purples

I found this idea shared by Tina Wardell using a fluid masking product to mask the aspen trees found in Winter Woods, allowing you to add color behind the trunks without getting color on the trunks.

I thought it was such a cool idea that I immediately started searching for where I could purchase the product.

I found an Incredible White Masking kit at our local arts and crafts store in the watercolor painting supply aisle.

The kit comes with the instructions, fluid, brush and eraser.

I actually used a small paint brush I had in my stash, and I did not erase the masking fluid when everything was dry.

I found that the eraser also took some of the paper off with it.  By not erasing it, your project is left with a cool texture on the trunks.

I CASED Tina's design on the first card using Mango Melody with a touch of Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles. 

For the second card, I used Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, and Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles.

Here's how:

  1. Stamp tree trunks from Winter Woods onto watercolor paper using Stazon ink. Use the Stamparatus so you get a good stamped image. Place a post-it-note to mask the bottom of the stamped image, and move the Stamparatus up one notch.  Stamp to get taller trees.
  2. With a small paint brush, apply the Incredible White Mask over the stamped trunks. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
  3. Sprinkle Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles over the watercolor paper. Spritz with water to activate the sprinkles.  Let them pool and run, soaking into the paper for a few seconds.  Dab with paper towel, and set aside to dry completely. The Incredible White Mask will mask the Sprinkles from coloring the stamped trees.
  4. Stamp the landscape from Winter Woods at the bottom of the trunks using Early Espresso ink. Stamp the tops of the tree image using Old Olive and Early Espresso inks.
  5. Attach to Basic Black mat.
  6. Stamp greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings onto Very Vanilla card base using Memento Black and the Stamparatus. Attach card front to base to complete.

Crafting with Aluminum Cans-Crazy Mountain Brewery

Here are two more of the cards I created using beer cans from Crazy Mountain Brewing Company in Denver, CO

One of my favorite crafting techniques is to cut shapes out of aluminum cans and add them to my card creations.

You can view my aluminum can creations HERE

(Instructions and a link to a video tutorial on how to cut the cans can be found on this page)

I'm always on the look out for interesting designs and colors on aluminum cans.

Fortunately, my husband is a craft beer drinker and is always bringing home new beers to try.  Often, these beers have interesting labels on the cans.  My husband drinks the beer, then I confiscate the cans to create!

The cans from Crazy Mountain Brewing Co are some of my favorites to craft with as they always have an interesting mix of animals on the cans.

Here is what the cans looked like before I cut them up.

Crazy Mountain cans

The Mountain Livin' creature is Jeremiah, a mix of mountain goat, elk, and pika.

The Crazy Mountain creature is Sheamus, a mix of owl, mule deer, and bobcat.

It was easy to match SU! colors with both designs.

For Jeremiah, I used Soft Suede and Soft Sea Foam paired with Woodlands embossing folder.

For Sheamus, I used Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry paired with Seaside embossing Folder.

I used brads from my stash to attach the card fronts to the card bases.

Fun!

This was certainly the case with Crazy Mountain Brewery located in Denver, CO.

They are some of my favorites to craft with as they always have an interesting mix of animals on the cans.

For the card above, I used the Lava Lake  Wit can with the fun image of Byamba, a mix of fox, osprey, and trout!

After cutting the can down, and trimming the image, I attached it to a piece of silver foil paper that I embossed using the Big Shot and Woodland embossing folder.

I have found that the best way to attach the cans to the card front is with brads.  Regular SNAIL or Tombow Multi Purpose Glue don't seem to hold up well.

Here is what the cans looked like before I cut them up.

Metallic Gears Floating Frame Card

Metallic gearsMetallic Gears Floating Frame Card

I seem to be on a masculine-theme card kick.

Masculine cards always seem to be a little tricky in the designing.

This idea came to me after creating my Steam Punk Gears card HERE

The embossing technique is pretty much the same, although this card ended up being a Floating Frame card.

You know, the Floating Frame technique, which is all the rage?

Usually, you end up with two cards with the technique, but I actually didn't like how the first of the two turned out.  I learned from that card that you need a lot of pieces (whether it be gears, flowers, butterflies etc) to fill in the frame or it looks empty.  That was the case with the first card which I just tossed.

But, I did really like this second piece.

If you'd like instructions on how to create a Gears Floating Frame Card, please add your name to my mailing list.

I will send you a tutorial in a pdf format as a thank you.

The sign up box is located on the upper right-hand side of this page.

Here's how I created the metallic gears.

  1. Place the Garage Gears Dies on a piece of Champagne Foil paper and cut out using the Big Shot.  Again, for the Floating Frame technique, cut out more gears than you think you'll need.  You'll probably use all of them to fill in spaces.
  2. Sponge Cherry Cobbler ink over the die cuts.  Cover with clear embossing powder and heat emboss using a heat tool.
  3. Dip the edges of the pieces in Versamark and heat emboss using black and copper embossing powders.  Switch powders in different areas so you have a mix of the two colors.

That's it!

You'll have some interesting pieces with a burnished metal look for your masculine-theme projects.

I added the gears frame to a piece of Silver Foil paper which I had stamped and embossed the greeting using black embossing powder.  I added enamel dots to the centers of the gears as well as next to the greeting.

Crafting with Aluminum Cans-Joe IPA

Joe IPAJoe IPA Masculine Card

One of my favorite crafting techniques is to cut shapes out of aluminum cans and add them to my card creations.

You can view my aluminum can creations HERE

(Instructions and a link to a video tutorial on how to cut the cans can be found on this page)

I'm always on the look out for interesting designs and colors on aluminum cans.

Fortunately, my husband is a craft beer drinker and is always bringing home new beers to try.  Often, these beers have interesting labels on the cans.  My husband drinks the beer, then I confiscate the cans to create!

This was certainly the case with Joe IPA brewed by 10 Barrel Brewing in Bend, OR.

I saw this guy sitting on the steps of his camper, and immediately saw the resemblance to my stepson Josh.

This was the card I created for his recent birthday.

I embossed silver foil paper using the Big Shot and Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder.

I couldn't get the matted aluminum can piece to stay glued to the embossed silver foil paper (I tried Dimensionals and Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.  The piece kept slipping off), so I got out my Crop-a-dile (remember the Crop-a-dile from years back?), and punched holes in the four corners and through the embossed background.   I attached everything together using silver brads.  Then, it held like a charm!

Here's what the beer can looked like before I cut it up.

Love the logo, "Drink Beer Outside."
