The first card is a complete CASE of Justin Krieger and is a card of his that I just loved. You can see his original card with instructions here. I love the clean simplicity of this card and its plainly Masculine feel thanks to the black layer but lightened by all the gold :-)
And here is a similar version that I made based loosely on the same sketch
For this card the base is some Smoky Slate topped with a layer of my new favourite colour - Lost Lagoon. It is one of the new In Colours this year :-) I ran that through the Big Shot using the On Point Embossing Folder - soon available in the Holiday Catalogue - to match the triangles on the DSP from the Moonlight Stack.
Next I stamped the moustache image from the Word Play stamp set in Versamark on some Basic Grey card before heat embossing it with some White embossing powder. It really helps it stand out.
For the Twine, I used some of the new Silver Twine and topped it with a Silver button to finish.
Card stock: Smoky Slate, Lost Lagoon, Basic Grey
Designer Series Paper: Moonlight Stack
Stamps: Word Play
Accessories: Big Shot, Moustache Framelit, On Point EF, White EP, Heat Tool, Silver Twine, Silver Button, Dimensionals, Snail
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day - and a big thank you to those who have asked about Sally. Here she is enjoying the sunshine earlier today - and yes, a rock in her water, its called a "Dog Rock" it's supposed to help purify the water in an effort to save the grass outside. I must admit I am not yet convinced :-)
Happy stamping until next time,
