Masculine

Hexagon meets Grunge

Hello Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a masculine card I case’d from a card I saw on Pinterest a while back using the Hexagon Punch and the Kaleidoscope DSP.

I did the base card in Black, then added a layer of Crushed Curry card and stamped an image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Smoky Slate ink.

I punched the Kaleidoscope DSP with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack then used the Hexagon Punch so the circle is centred.

I used some Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and weaved it through the punched Hexagons.

I stamped Happy Birthday from Itty Bitty Banners and die cut with coordinating Bitty Banners dies.

Here is a close up!

I love how this turned out and love the Grungy look using the stamp set to add a little detail. Without the stamped background it looked too plain.
This grungy style was something that definitely didn’t appeal to me when I first saw it, but boy has it grown on me!
Why don’t you have a go at a gungy style card too?

Baby

Zoo Babies

Hello Crafters,

It must be month for babies, as a past work colleague who I still keep in touch with became a grandmother during the week. Her daughter had a baby girl!

I immediately thought to use the Zoo Babies stamp set (W#130483, C#130456) and the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set (W#132022, C#126257) with coordinating framelits, Bitty Banners (#129267).

Zoo Babies

I stamped the Rhino in Smoky Slate ink twice and fussy cut the head and used a dimensional to place on top and a 1/8″ mini silver brad for the eye.

The lion is stamped in Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango for the head, also fussy cut. The elephant I used Pink Pirouette ink and mounted the ear.

The polka dot paper used for the background is from the Subtles DSP Stack and the dotted scallop ribbon border punch in Pink Pirouette card.

How cute is this card? I just love the soft tones of baby cards and love the look of using dimensionals to add height to the animals, a bit like paper tole!
