Stampin’ Up! Classic Father’s Day card

Hello Friends,

Today I focus on a Masculine card, because here in Australia, we celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday. This card I am sharing with you, was a very straight forward card to create!

The 1-1/4″ Burlap ribbon has retired, but it was the perfect width for behind this circle!

After I photographed this card, I went back and coloured the image with my AquaPainter and some Crumb Cake ink for some extra colour.

30th birthday card for an AFL Richmond Tigers fan!

Hello Friends,

Today I share a card that was a customer request for a 30th birthday, but the brief was to have it in the Richmond Tigers colours of the AFL team.

I started with a black card and added a strip of Daffodil Delight card diagonally across the card front. I did have to google the image and print it for the logo!

The Gold glimmer was used for the sentiments and die cut using the Happy Birthday thinlits die and the retired Little Numbers dies.

on the inside I placed another piece of Daffodil Delight card with a strip of black across the bottom.

Masculine Birthday Card using Stampin’ Up!s Guy Greetings

Hello Friends,

Who struggles creating Masculine cards for the men in your life? Well, I know I certainly do and so I have made some cards to store away for when I need them!

This card uses the Guy Greetings stamp set in the current Annual catalogue. I quite like these shoes and feel that they can be used for anyone who may be a businessman who wears a suit for their day job, or anyone with a little style! lol

Handmade Cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!, Techniques & Tutorials

Hats off to You, Masculine Open Panel card with tutorial

Hello Friends,

On Saturday at my class, we focused on Masculine cards with Father’s Day coming up next month. This card I am sharing with you today, is an Open Panel Card!

(you may have received a post already about this last week, but I hadn’t finished writing the post and WordPress was playing funny buggers with me, so here it is again, with all the details)!

Masculine Card for Father's Day, Hats off to you using Stampin Ups Guy Greetings by Kate Morgan, Independent Demonstrator Australia. Craft with Kate #cutitnothoardit

The images were stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock with Smoky Slate ink. We used some of the retired DSP from the Occasions catalogue, as it was perfect for our masculine project. The base card is Basic Gray cardstock.

Craft with Kate #cutitnothoardit inside

The card itself was quite simple to create. Here is how I did it:

I began with half an A4 sheet (29.7 x 10.5cm) folded in half. I cut off the bottom panel measuring 5cm (2″). Then I cut it again allowing for a 3.5cm (1-3/8″) gap in the centre of the card.

The large Gray panel measures 6.5cm x 10.5cm, the Vanilla is 6cm x 10cm

The medium Gray panel is 4.7cm x 7cm, the Vanilla is 4.2cm x 6.5cm

The Sentiment Gray panel is 7.5cm x 1.5cm, the Vanilla is 7cm x 1cm

DSP: 10cm x 6cm & 10cm x 4.5cm

Once you have done all your stamping and mounted those pieces onto the Gray matt pieces of cardstock and added your DSP to the top and bottom panels, hold the bottom panel lining it up with the base of the card so you can add the centre panel. Make sure you only add adhesive to the top and bottom sections of this panel. Then add the other two panels to your card. I also added some Vanilla cardstock to the inside of the card and stamped the hats image in the bottom right corner!

Here are two more of this same style card!

Masculine, Stampin' Up!

Nailed It with Urban Underground

Dear Crafters,

Today I am sharing the last of the four cards that we made at my last craft class, focusing on a Masculine theme. This time we are using the Nailed It stamp set with the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nailed It Urban Underground Masculine card by Kate Morgan Independent Demonstrator Australia

I actually cased this card from a similar one that Kelly Kent created that I saw on Pinterest.  I am not a great creator of masculine cards, and I actually find them quite challenging, so I often find myself scouring Pinterest for ideas.

This card really messes with my OCD too, stamping in such a random pattern, is something that I truly struggle with. We started with a square, stamped the images, then cut into 3 equal strips.

The sentiment is from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

And I always stamp the inside too!!!
