Welcome to another Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team.
This month we are featuring Masculine themed projects.
We have many masculine themed products in the Stampin’ Up! range including Stamp Sets and coordinating Dies, Designer Series Papers, Embellishments and Embossing Folders.
Art With Heart Team have a wonderful selection of projects to inspire you to create Masculine Masterpieces.
I have done something a little different with my masculine card today, in that I have used some Designer Series Paper that is definitely not masculine.
It’s the Best Dressed DSP and probably not one you would have chosen for a masculine card. But I have used the reverse side of this one….
and used it as a background for my masculine card.
And I also wanted to keep it nice and simple, so have taken a piece of the fabulous watercolour paper, wet it down with an aqua painter, and then swooshed some ink across it, very quickly and freely.
Then once the watercolour paper was dry, I stamped the lighthouse and birds from the Sailing Home stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink, and the words are from the New Wonders stamp set.
Layered over some Pretty Peacock cardstock, and it’s a very quick and easy card to make.
The next demonstrator to share their Masculine project with you is the very talented …..
I hope you enjoy all of the inspiration.

Another card using the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies, they make it so easy to create great masculine cards.
This card is for the current challenge at Cardz4Guyz, which is to make a masculine card using only Black and White.
So many ideas and options for that one, but I am loving this stamp and die set, so thought I would use it again for this card.
All of the elements on the card are part of this set of stamps and dies, apart from the “Hello”, which is from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.
And my knotted row of knots…. lined up beautifully because I used my new favourite tool, the Stamparatus. So much fun!
Hope you have a crafty evening. Happy stamping!
My card today was inspired by a combination of two challenges, one to use the current Season (where ever you might be in the world) from Just Add Ink, and the other is to CASE a card from page 151 of the catalogue.
It’s Winter here in Australia, and recently it has been windy, blustery, cold, rainy, sunny, warm, overcast…. pretty much everything you can think of other than snow. So I wanted to come up with something that felt like cold, windy and wintery. Hmmm yes that was a challenge!
The flying birds on this paper from the Bird Ballad DSP made me think of windy days, and I combined it with Gray Granite and Pretty Peacock.
The panel in the DSP was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and I have used the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing Dies from the Come Sail Away Suite, which I am loving, so you will be seeing more of it over the next few weeks.
