For the next masculine birthday card, I used Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees stamp and used the rock and roll technique on the trunk with two inks and also on the leafy top but adding some dabs of the darker ink. The ribbon is Stampin' Up's seam binding and the button is from PTI. The green border die is a new one from MemoryBox. Thanks for taking a peek, I hope to get some more cards loaded this afternoon ... :)

Father's Day chef
Good morning! It's been a little quiet on the blog front here, but I finally got a little time to make a couple of masculine cards. I used a Flourishes stamp from the Mix n Match set (perfect for the chef Dad) and some papers from the Pyrus collection by Basic Grey. I stamped the chef tools onto Papertrey Ink's vintage cream cs and coloured with Copic markers and a Zig silver pen, cut out. The mug was stamped onto a PTI coaster board and coloured with Copics, stamped with the #1 Dad and cut out with my tonic scissors...I love these and use them for all of my "fussy cutting". I used dimensional foam behind the cup and adhered to a Labels Eighteen cut from the BG paper. I had some embroidery floss and tied around the front of the card before placing the image on the card front.
