Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Hope you’re all enjoying the month of May. Today, is release day at Taylored Expressions with stamps, layering stencils, paper, dies and sentiments perfect for making masculine/dude cards. Today, I’m sharing six projects using many of the products from the release.
The Great Outdoors Layering Stencil Ideas
The Great Outdoors Layering Stencil & Clear Combo is perfect for mass producing card designs perfect for masculine card giving. With the one layering stencil you create four natural park themed focal images for your card designs AND they pair perfectly with the new Circle & Hexagon Stacklets and Circle & Hexagon Diagonal Stitched Dies.
For my four nature scenes, I stenciled the images with Blueberry, Gumball, Honey & Avocado Inks and die cut using the new Circle & Hexagon Stacklets. Once I had all my die cut pieces, I layered them with Toffee, Blue Corn and Sugar Cube bases along with adding embossed stitching using the Ridged Hexagon and Circle Stacklets.
I stamped all the Dude Sentiment in Blueberry Ink and cut using the coordinating Dude Sentiments Die set. using the Dude Sentiments Stamp & Coordinating Dies.
Through the Woods Stamp & Coordinating Dies Ideas
For my second set of cards, I stamped the Through the Woods Trees in Poblano Pepper & Early Grey Ink and cut out each image using the Through the Woods coordinating dies. I wanted to create a retro mountain poster/t-shirt vibe for my card design and combined the stamped trees with a Hexagon & Circle Woodgrain background with & Easy Strips stripes in several widths and a handful of “dude colors” (yes, I added in a little pink and purple too). To finish the cards, I added a Dude Sentiment in Poppyseed Ink and a Man, Myth, Legend Chocolate & White Embossed Sentiment Strip.
This is a Dude Card Easy Strip Cardstock Colors: Dijon, Tropical Punch, Peapod, Sprinkles, Blue Corn and Chocolate.
Happy Father’s Day Easy Strip Cardstock Colors: Guava, Passion Fruit, Eggplant, Cookie Monster, Peapod, Granny Smith.
So there we are friends, six cards perfect for a special guy in your life using the Taylored Expressions For Him Release. I hope you enjoyed my card ideas. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
