OSAT June Blog Hop – Masculine!

Home / Blog / OSAT June Blog Hop – Masculine!

Hello my friends! We finally had some sun yesterday! I made sure that in between my crafting I went outside frequently! I didn’t do much else, I did have plans to do a lot more, just didn’t have the motivation. I had a quick dinner with my Parents and then ran a few errands. Today I have to do a little cleaning and finished up a few more projects. Good times! 😀

For my projects today I’m participating in a blog hop with a bunch of my friends from one of the Facebook groups that I belong to. It’s called One Stamp at a Time Cards and More. If you have arrived here from the clever Jessie Holton’s blog, welcome! This month we have a Masculine theme! Hmm… Masculine should be my specialty, but I do loves me some flowers! LOL!!

I have two cards for Father’s Day to share with you! The first one starts off with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain Background Wood Mount Stamp and some Hero Arts Sand to Chocolate Brown Ombre Ink to make my background. Next up is a piece of 48lb Vellum that is cut out with the Hero Arts Nesting Postage Infinity Dies. I used the Hero Arts Nesting Tags Dies to cut out a piece of Kraft, added the black reinforcement and a piece of Hemptique Black Hemp Twine tied through the top. My cool die cuts are cut from Black 110lb using the Hero Arts Hipster Icon Dies, they are adhered to the tag with Multi-Matte Medium. The greeting is from the Hero Arts Dapper Dad Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in the Ombre Ink at the bottom of the tag. I adhered the tag to the Vellum with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and then adhered the Vellum to the card. Simple but definitely masculine!

My second card uses the same base. I stamped the bicycles from the Hero Arts Hipster at Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Granite repeatedly to create a simple stamped background. Across the top I stamped my greeting from the Hero Arts Dapper Dad Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black. Another bicycle is stamped in Tide Pool and cut out with the Coordinating Frame Cuts. I used 3M Foam Tape to adhere it over one of the stamped bicycles on the card. That’s it! Nice and simple but I do love a stamped background!

  1. Love both of these cards Justin. Those are fabulous masculine stamp sets and that bicycle die is great. Any Dad would be thrilled with either one of these cards. I have a hard time with masculine cards but you seem to just have a knack for making great masculine cards. Hmmmm, maybe I’ll just have you make any I need for me. LOL

    Sun shiny day today again – that’s 2 in a row. I think it’s possible that we may be starting a trend here. We are going to put the A/C units in the windows on Saturday. Now that means that for at least a week after we won’t need them and temps will surely drop like a rock. Happens every year. 🙂 You have yourself a Terrific Thursday my friend. Love & Hugs to you XXOO 🙂

    1. Thanks Grace! I love both of those sets! LOL! I do like to make them so maybe!
      We have been really lucky with the weather! I don’t know, you may have broken your AC Streak! Still nice and warm here! Love and hugs to you! XOXO 🙂

  2. I love both cards, Justin. Both are so different but interesting and fun. I have a bicycle die and love using it in many different colors for both genders. The hipster card is adorable with those manly items. Our weather has been crazy. We’ve had days when we needed the heat on for a while to take the chill off and then the a/c so we can sleep comfortably. It looks as though some days in the 90’s are coming out way. I can take that. Enjoy your day.

    1. Thank you HJ! I love that Hipster Set and bicycles are good for anyone! I would rather the warm for sure! Hope that you are having a great week! 🙂
