Blogging Friends Blog Hop June 2018 - Masculine Card Hop





Welcome to this months fabulous Blogging Friends Blog Hop!
I was so excited with this months theme - Masculine! 
We all know when it comes to creating a masculine card, it takes a little more thought and creativity. I was so happy that the Wood Textures DSP was carried over as I have a slight obsession with this paper pack. 
It also turned out to be my husbands birthday this past week so it was super easy coming up with his card. I have always wanted to make this card so I added my favorite DSP and I had a true winner. By the way he loved it! 

It just happened that I gave it to him the night before so it was perfect for his "Oldometer" turning over!
I used a Brand New stamp set Make A Difference for the sentiment. I can honestly tell you it was so easy to stamp in a straight line! Win Win!
The second card I created was my original card I created for our monthly Demo meeting Card Swap. This was my first card before I tweeked a couple things.

I love this card! I painstakingly paper pieced this card to form the Very Vanilla Cross under the Copper Foil Cross cutout! I made 11 of these! For me that is incredible as I get very bored and normally can't create more than 6 of the same cards. Realizing just how long this process was taking and not as Masculine as I was needing for the Blog challange, I switched up the rest of the cards. I stamped the Hold On To Hope Cross on Very Vanilla and heat embossed in Copper. I popped up the cross on dimentionals for a 3D look, I love the way it turned out.

Stamps & Dies: Hold On To Hope & Cross of Hope
Cardstock & Ink: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Wood Textures DSP, Versamark Ink
Copper Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Big Shot, Dimentionals, Snail 
I hope you like my creations! I really had fun with this months projects, can you tell!
Now please hop over to Mary Ann's Blog!

Happy Stamping friends.

Super idea for the wood grain paper and the Oldometer is extremely clever!
