Masculine Monday

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Masculine Monday

Today I have a couple of quick & easy masculine themed cards to share with you made using two background stamps, the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Dies.

Background stamps are a super versatile addition to every stampers stash as you can create large patterns quickly and easily and can stamp them in any colour you desire to coordinate with the occasion and/or recipient. My only rule of thumb is to buy ones that I love and think will look great in lots of different colours 😉

The two background stamps I used in today’s projects are the Buffalo Check and Birch stamps from the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue and I used my Stamparatus to stamp both of them so I could repeat stamp if necessary and build up the colour intensity as well.

TIP: I have to say this is the best method I’ve used to get a great result with the Buffalo Check stamp and as it’s one of my favourites I’m so glad I found a method that gives me the result I want every time 🙂

I stamped both backgrounds onto 1/4 sheets of Whisper White cardstock using Blueberry Bushel and Grey Granite inks and then trimmed them down using a rectangle die from my stash.

I stamped sentiments from the Well Said stamp set onto some Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the Tailored Tag Punch. I added a little faux stitching around the edge with a Basic Black Marker to mimic the stitched detail on the other layers and then adhered a die cut word from the Well Written Dies to complete my sentiment.

TIP: I  die cut and adhered three words together to add a little dimension and texture and give the word some extra strength as part of it overhangs the edges.

I popped this up with dimensionals over a little Old Olive foliage die cut with the Well Written Dies and added another rectangle behind die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.

To finish off the insides I added the same layers as the front and stamped another sentiment from Well Said with my Stamparatus.

I really like how today’s cards turned out, the backgrounds really add so much to these simple designs, but if you don’t have any background stamps, patterned paper would work just as well 🙂 One advantage of stamping your own background however, is that you can choose any colour you like and you don’t have to worry about running out of DSP if you’re making a bunch 🙂

Cheers,
Karen
