Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Masculine Cards


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are a group of international Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, holiday, occasion or product suite.  We also do a quarterly stamp camp and have one coming up July 22nd  & 23rd (Hues of Happiness Suite).  Every month we also create a tutorial bundle.  This month the tutorial bundle features masculine cards.  The projects featured in this blog hop are different than the projects in the tutorial bundle.  We want to share lots of ideas with you.


I chose  the Whiskey Business stamp set.  My son likes Old Fashioneds so it was a perfect stamp set for me to make cards for him.  I paired the stamps with the He's the Man DSP.  If you make masculine cards then this pack of paper makes it easy to create handsome and fun cards.  

I started by stamping and coloring the decanter and glasses.  I used Smoky Slate, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Stampin' Blends.  I fussy cut the images out.  I used a Blending Brush and added a little Pool Party to the Basic White square (Stylish Shapes-largest square).   The decanter was adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the glasses were adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was perfectly cut out using the Sending dies.


The Early Espresso card base measures 4-1/4" x 11" (10.5 cm x 29.7 cm) and scored at 2-1/4", 5-1/2" (6 cm, 14.8 cm).  The front flap folds back to create a pocket for a gift card or cash.  This is a quick and easy gift card holder and might come in handy if you are still looking for something for Father's Day.

Be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop for even more masculine card ideas.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
