Honey Bee Stamps Happiness - Masculine Birthday

Hello Lovely.  We've made it to hump day the weekend is closer than we think.  I'm ready for it, and I'll be honest I'm a little excited because there might be Indian food.  Yep, I get excited about food.  Anywho... let's talk about these cards.  I've been thinking about all the girly cards I make and thinking that I really need to make more masculine cards.  This is just a start, which of course had to include ink blending.


For the card on the left, I started with a kraft panel and the retired Bubbles from the Deep stencil from Echo Park and blended Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge ink over top.  I  removed the stencil and used my Clarity Stencil Brushes to add a light blend of ink over top.  You know what happened next, I cut it with my famous Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp.  Then came the fun part, building the sentiment using the Honey Bee Stamps Happiness and Kindness stamp sets, which I stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I mounted the panel onto a rust colored card base.  Nearly a one layer card.

The card on the right is also a kraft panel with ink blending.  I used the same Bubbles from the Deep stencil and blended Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, and Carved Pumpkin.  Then I shifted the stencil and added some Perfect Pearls in Perfect Bronze over the stencil. I set the Perfect Pearls with a few mists of water.  I also cut this panel with the same Stitched Rectangles dies.  I built the sentiment for this card using the Honey Bee Stamps Happiness set and stamped it in VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  I completed the card by mounting the panel onto the same rust colored card base.

Thanks for swinging by today.  I know the font on these is a bit more feminine, but I think it's a good start to working on masculine cards.
