Welcome to another Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team.
This month we are featuring masculine themed projects. We have many masculine themed products in the Stampin’ Up! range including Stamp Sets and coordinating Dies, Designer Series Papers, Embellishments and Embossing Folders.
The Art With Heart Team have a wonderful selection of projects to inspire you to create Masculine Masterpieces, so let’s get started!
I’m sharing some techniques you can use to make masculine cards that feature Designer Series Paper – even when you don’t have the coordinating stamp set bundle from the same suite.
I’ve used the Country Club DSP as the base for all three cards. This DSP and its coordinating Golf club Dies and Clubhouse stamp set are perfect for any golf loving male or female.
My first card is an easel card – this is a super easy fancy fold that stands the card up for display. Here it is standing up. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.
I love how the yellow golf cart pattern looks like a strip of washi tape when trimmed to a narrow line, but most of all I love how one of the papers in the Golf Club DSP has a series of stamped images – this made it so easy to create a card without the co-ordinating stamp set.
I coloured in the male golfer using my Crushed Curry and Smokey Slate Stampin’ Up! markers, before making a custom envelope for my card.
Here’s how it looks when folded down for postage.
For card two I stamped an image from the “A Good Man” stamp set – I especially love the sentiments in this set.
I used a technique called paper piecing to make a golf shirt out of the argyle pattern in the Country Club DSP. I then coloured the rest of the image in with Stampin’ blends before fussy cutting a flag and golf bag out of some of the other Country Club DSP sheets to complete the scene.
My golfer looks like he’s plonked his chair down right on top of the 18th hole with his golf bag leaning in as he finally relaxes after a tough game.
The base of my card is a Whisper White Notecard with matching envelope which I customised to match the card.
First cover the outside of your envelope flap with Multi Liquid Glue and line up the edge of your DSP to the top fold of your envelope. Glue the outside of the envelope flap to the reverse side of the DSP before using your paper snips to trim the DSP around the edge of your envelope flap.
Card three uses the stitched nested labels to cut out lots of different Country Club DSP patterns. I attached some of the Country Club Twine across the middle of the card and then added a sentiment from the “A Good Man” stamp set.
The customised envelope flap was made in the same way as for card two but this time attached to a larger C6 Whisper White envelope to fit the card.
The next demonstrator to share their Masculine project with you is the very talented Rachel Woollard. I can’t wait to see Rachel’s masculine cards.
