Father’s Day

Hello there.  And Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers and step-fathers out there.  To celebrate today, I am sharing a funny CAS Father’s Day card.  The idea for my card actually came from a Mother’s Day stamp set with “Thanks to you I turned out awesome” sentiment. 😂 Too funny.

The panda image and sentiment were stamped with black Memento ink on a white A2 rectangle.

Bluprint Sketch distress ink and a mini blending tool were used to Ombré colour the dad diecut sentiment and to shade the background.

Glossy Accents was added to dad for a bit of dimension and as a finishing touch. Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Action Ninja

Hello everyone.  I’m sharing another CAS birthday card today.  This time, it’s a really quick and fun interactive masculine card for my soon to be 10 year old nephew.

The explosion was stamped with Mustard Seed distress ink on a white A2 Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle.

The ninja was stamped with black Memento ink, coloured with Copics then die cut out with the  coordinating die.  The sentiment was heat embossed with VersaMark, Sapphire ink and clear embossing powder.

To make the card more fun, the ninja was mounted on a mini action wobble.  You can check it out in the video.  I’m so sorry, but I have no idea why the video is displaying so big.

 

 

Thank you for dropping by.  Have a great day!

Dream Big

Hi there.  Just dropping in quickly to share a CAS masculine graduation card before I get right back into making more birthday cards.  I have a bunch of birthdays coming up. 😉

 

The world was stamped with Limestone and Industrial Diamond inks on a scrap of white cardstock.  It was covered with VersaMark, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder before being die cut out with the circle die.

The slight glow from the world was created with a sponge dauber and white pigment ink on an A2 black panel.  Splatters of white acrylic paint created the starry background in the upper portion.

The sentiment was die cut from a scrap of glossy white cardstock and black fun foam to be stacked for dimension.  It was tough, but keeping it CAS and masculine, so no glitter or embellishments.  😂

 

Thank you for visiting. Have a great week.

Snowy Tree Christmas

Hello everyone.  I have a masculine Christmas card to share.  It is for Challenge #224 Masculine Christmas from Merry Monday.  Since it is a masculine card, I kept it very simple with goood old stamping.

Snowy Tree Christmas card

I shadow stamped the tree with Crumb Cake (Kraft), Wild Wasabii and Whisper White inks on a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die cut from Crumb Cake cardstock.

The deer was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The snow bank and falling snow were stamped with Whisper White ink.  I used a tissue to wipe the white snow bank off the embossed deer.

For dimension I mounted the panel on white fun foam to a top folding white card base.

Northern Lights Greetings

Hi there.  I’m back to share another CAS Christmas card.  I’ve always wanted to try the Northern Lights technique, so I decided to finally give it a try.  My fingers got extremely inky, and I had to start over a couple times because I kept smearing ink all over the place!  I combined that technique with the masking technique to create today’s card.

Northern Lights Christmas

I started with a white A2 size panel to make it easier to die cut it later.  First I created a reverse mask by die cutting a circle from masking paper.  I placed it onto the panel, off setting it to the right.  I then masked off the snowy ground with labelling tape that I cut a slope from with scissors.  Using sponges, I added streaks of Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  A couple of places, I overlapped colours to get purple and green.  These “additional” colours are harder to see amongst the streaks of Night of Navy ink.

To tried to capture the shimmery look of the real Northern Lights and brushed Pearl Perfect Pearls over top.  With the masks still in place, I stamped the trees with Intense Black ink.  I removed the masks, then stamped the deer from the same stamp set.  I added Perfect Pearls to the deer as well.

The sentiment was stamped with black Versafine ink and then heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder for even more sparkle.  The panel was then die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die.  For dimension, I adhered the panel to white fun foam and mounted it to a top folding white card base.  To finish I added a few Sparkling clear sequins.
