Hello again! Well, it’s been another fortnight again, which means I have a new lot of class creations to share with you! This fortnight, we used Guy Greetings to make a Father’s Day card (Father’s Day is 4th September in Australia), and two birthday cards. I find it hard to create masculine cards, so I very rarely do them in a class! ;)

IMG_0660On a piece of Watercolor Paper, we stamped the strongman image with Versamark and heat embossed with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The image was then water coloured with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Mint Macaron ink.
IMG_0657The edges of the paper were then sponged with Sahara Sand ink. The happy birthday sentiment was stamped with Memento ink, and the card was finished off with a few strands of Linen Thread. Here’s the finished card:

We used a card base of Garden Green cardstock. On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, we stamped a splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge, using Soft Suede ink.  This piece was matted onto Soft Suede cardstock. On a circle of Whisper White cardstock, we stamped the car image from Guy Greetings, with Garden Green ink.

A strip of DSP from Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper pack was glued onto the card front, and a few loops of Linen Thread were held in place with a Glue Dot. The car image circle was then adhered above this with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
IMG_0666On a strip of Basic Black cardstock, we stamped a sentiment with Versamark, and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The card was finished off with some black sequins (which I found at Spotlight!). Here’s the finished card:
