It's that time again, time to freak out with the Freaks on our monthly blog tour! If you've just arrived from Dawn Olchefske's blog, you are in the right spot!
But if you started right here, fear not! You can manage to get all
the way around the entire tour just by following the links at the
bottom of each post.
This post is going live on the evening of the 19th, so if you find some posts in our tour have not yet posted, please be patient. The entire tour should be accessible at some point this evening. Keep checking back!
As you might have guessed, our theme this month is Stamping for the Men in Our Lives. I love making masculine cards! For my first card, I decided to do a more masculine Christmas card. Of course, what is more masculine than plaid, right? Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Snowflake Soiree; Paper - Festival of Prints DSP, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer paper; Ink - Cherry Cobbler; Other - Snow Flurry Bigz die, Regals brads, gold brads, Orange Sharpie marker, Very Vanilla seam binding, sponge wedge, dimensionals.
MOJUS! (GOJUS in a manly way!) (YILM!) In order to get those fabulous copper brads on the side, I took some gold brads, put some Orange sharpie marker on each one then quickly blotted most of it off with my finger. It left just enough color behind to make them look like copper.
For my other card, I wanted to do something really cool and I think I achieved it. Lookie:
Ingredients: Stamps - Up, Up, and Away, Pennant Parade, Word Play; Paper - Neutrals Patterns Paper Stack, First Edition DSP, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake; Ink - Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso; Other - Chevron embossing folder, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Bitty Punch pack, 1/2" circle punch, 2-1/2 circle punch, Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon, dimensionals, sponge wedges, Metallic brads, Early Espresso marker.
MOJUS! (YILM!) Sunbursts are everywhere these days, and I wanted to get on the bandwagon! To create this fabulous sunburst, I used one of the stamps from Pennant Parade. Cool eh? I am SO clever (but you knew that) and YILM! (and you knew that too!)
