Masculine Birthday Card

Hello! Do you struggle with making masculine cards? Nadine Carlier is here on the blog today with an awesome card featuring our ‘Revolution’ stamps which includes the brilliant musketeer collage stamp…


Sometimes we just need a good masculine birthday card! I actually like making grungy masculine cards. It is a nice change of pace sometimes from doing all the cutesy cards.

I used a couple different stamp sets from Visible Image. I first started with some watercolor paper and used a blending brush with some Distress Ink Vintage Photo to cover the entire piece. Then with the Visible Image ‘Square Route’ Stencil around the outside edges of the paper, I added a second layer of the Distress Ink Vintage Photo working towards the center of the paper but not covering the very center. Then with Distress Ink Gathered Twigs, I went around just the outer edge but only about an inch in.



I then used the ‘Revolution’ stamp set to stamp the image in the middle of the paper with VersaFine Clair Nocturne and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then stamped over it again with some Delicata Golden Glitz. I also used the swirly stamp from the Revolution set and stamped around the outer edge with Delicata Golden Glitz.

Then using the Square Route stencil again and some Texture Paste in Copper Crackle, I added some of the paste around the outer edge.



I colored the window and the circles on the stamp image with a Wink Of Stella Gold Glitter Brush and flicked some of it onto the front of my card piece. Used some Distress Ink in Black Soot to edge the card with and matted it some black cardstock.

For the sentiment, I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ Stamp and stamped it with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

It was fun adding all the different ink layers and just randomly adding different mediums to create a grungy masculine card.

New Beginnings | Card | Visible Image

Hello! We hope you had a great weekend! We have lots of fabulous inspiration to share with you on the blog this week. First up is Martha with an awesome mixed media card featuring our New Beginnings sentiment stamp.. perfect words for the new year!


New year, new decade, new beginnings, new post for Visible Image 🙂

 

I made this card for my self, maybe I’ll hanging on my wall as a reminder 🙂


Here is a quick step by step:


On watercolor paper I blended some distress ink through the stencil Fibres



then I stamped with Somewhere In Time the big stain with Pumice Stone Disteress Ink



then from the same stamp set, I stamped the clock with Black Archival Ink



to build the background some more stamps, from Creative Chaos this time



On another piece of cardstock I stamped my quote from the Brave And Strong stamp set and made a frame with a fine marker



Now is time to give a little more structure to the background so I applied some modeling paste through the stencil Count Me In


and when dry add more color with the grey Brusho



Some white splatters to finish the background, before applying some wire, the quote and the little strip that I cut from the top of the card



And here is the result

 

 



Products Used:


fibres - waves - stencil - texture



numbers - stencil - jumbled - count me in



smashes clock - pocket watch - time - stamps - rubber



inky flower - stamp - rubber - clear - grunge
