TCM: Masculine Blog Hop


Hi there!

I'm back with the designers from The Craft's Meow with a couple of cards for our theme of the day: masculine.  Don't forget TCM is having a sale going on right now until the 21st - check out all the details here.


Both cards from me today were made using Nina's Vintage Clocks stamp set.  Such a fun stamp set for masculine cards, I think!  I went CAS with both of them, with minimal layers and embellishments since I'm not sure all our 'fancy' embellishments are fully appreciated by our guys.


On this card, I used The Twinery's platinum shimmer twine - it matched this soft stone patterned paper very well and added just a bit of sparkle.  The black pearls on both cards are from Want2Scrap.


My next card is all in blues.  I rarely stamp my sentiments directly on patterned paper like this and I'm not sure it really works as well as I think it should.  I usually like the sentiments to pop a bit more, but I was going for a 'flat' card... Next time, I'll stamp it and emboss the sentiment to help it stand out just a bit more.


The blue shimmer twine is so pretty and sparkly against this blueberry sky papers from PaperTrey ink.  Love all the new shimmer twines from The Twinery - have you seen them yet?

Have a great day!
Jessica

Msasculine cards are the hardest to make for me, I love those clocks and your color choice. TFS

Great cards Jessica - love the blue card in particular, but you are right, the sentiment does get a bit lost on the patterned paper.
