Saturday Series: Adventure Bound Masculine cards
I just love the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper. It is so striking and unlike any other paper that Stampin' Up carries. It is NOT carrying over, so you have until Tuesday night to order this awesome collection of paper!! So I have a several masculine cards to share that I made using this paper!! I used the Guy Greetings Stamp set (not retiring) and By the Tide (not retiring) and the Walk in the Wild (retiring) to make this set of cards.
What do you think?? pretty cool huh??
This card is a great guy card!! The sentiment could easily be changed to Happy Father's day, or just thinking of you. The base of the card is Basic Gray cut at 4 1/4" x 11. The next layer is Whisper White cut at 4" x 5 1/4". The background stamp on the Whisper White is from By the Tide stamp set stamped in Smoky Slate, I stamped it off once to give it a subtle look. The Designer Series Paper is 1" x 5" (rock) and 1/2" x 5" (Indigo Island printed paper), these two papers are actually the same paper, just the opposite sides. I love that Stampin' Up paper is 2 sided, it's like getting extra paper!! The Basic Gray square is 3 1/4" x 3", and the Whisper White is 3" x 2 3/4". I stamped the seaweed in Smoky Slate, the fish was stamped with Indigo Island and popped up with dimensionals. I used Indigo Island Baker's Twine to finish it off.
Isn't this card wonderful!! I got the idea for this card from Ronda Wade. The Base card is Marina Mist cut at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" .The wonderful check pattern is from the Adventure Bound Designer pack, it's cut at 4" x 5 1/4". The Banners are layered in Marina Mist and Early Espresso using the Banner Framelits. The stamp and sentiment used here is from Guy Greetings. What do ya think?? Feel inspired??
This card is a Z-fold card, and I just love the way it turned out.
See how it opens? That's why it's called a Z-fold. The card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and scored at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". The flap where the Adventure Bound Designer Series paper is to me just makes a big statement, it really makes this card. The measurements are Early Espresso 2 " x 5 1/4" and the Adventure Bound paper is 1 3/4" x 5". It is such a great combination of colors!! The square is Cajun Craze 3 1/4" x 4 1/4", and Early Espresso 3" x 4", and Whisper White at 2 3/4" x 3 3/4". To make the moose, I stamped the Walk in the Wild stamp set in Early Espresso. I simply sponged Soft Suede on the Moose and Old Olive on the grass. I really like the way it turned out, the colors are just so soothing!! The greeting is from Wetlands.
What do you think?? The colors here are so fresh and relaxing!! I LOVE, LOVE this card!! The base is Indigo Island. The two designer papers are from the Adventure Bound designer stack (do you see why I LOVE this stack...it's loaded with great paper!!) both are cut at 2 1/2 x 4, and the strip of Indigo Island in the middle is 1" x 4". The Sahara Sand square is 3" x 3" and then the Indigo Island is 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" and then Whisper White 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". The anchor is stamped with Sahara Sand and the sentiment is stamped in Indigo Island, they are both from the Guy Greetings stamp set!! It's a keeper too!! I used the banner punch to make the small banner and added a mini brad for character.
