Layered masculine cards with Lindy’s



Hi everyone, today I would like to show you how you can create these fun and easy masculine cards using some Lindy’s Stamp Gang colouring mediums:



Step 1:

I used a half A4 sheet of watercolour paper to get met started and applied on one half of this LSG Flat Fabio Spray in “T-bird Turquoise” and on one half LSG Flat Fabio Spray in “Tilt-a-Wheel Teal”, mixing them in the middle. Both are soft colours. I used a brush to apply the colours directly from the bottle, after spraying with water first, and heat set the colours when I liked what I had.

Next I die cut two rectangle panels from this sheet, each two sizes smaller than my card base. Onto these panels I stamped with the Impression Obsession background stamp called “Beauty Text” using Archival Ink in “Forget met Not” onto the blue panel and Distress Ink in “Cracked Pistachio” on the soft green panel.


Step 2:

Than I stamped on both panels parts of each of the two stamps in the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamp set “Inventor 1” using Archival Ink in “Jet Black”.  This way I have created some interest in the background using different layers over each other but without adding bulk to my card.


Step 3:

For my sentiment I wanted to use one of the stamps in the Taylored Expressions “Another Year Older” stamp set. This sentiment I stamped twice onto black smooth card stock using VersaMark ink and I heat embossed afterwards using LSG embossing powder in “Slam Dunk Silver”, followed by die cutting a banner shape around it.

I also die cut, three times, the design you can see in the picture (sort of Moroccan style) from cheap paper and added two layers of LSG “Spring Leaf Chartreuse” for the green and two layers of “Tilt-a-Wheel Teal” for the blue design (using VersaMark ink). On each design I also added a bit of the Slam Dunk Silver that I used before for the sentiment.


Step 4:

For my focal point I picked two images from the Lili of the Valley stamp set “Vintage Motor - Trio” and stamped these onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and heat embossed them with LSG “Clearly Clear” embossing powder.

Next I fussy cut and coloured the images using the soft green and blue tones that I used for the background as well as Sprays in “Tweedle Dee Denin” and “Jack in the Pulpit Teal”, combined with LSG Magical Shaker in “Stormy Silver” and water with a small brush.





Step 5:

Time to put my cards together: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle mat from silver mirror card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered to a black card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

I adhered the banner shape with the sentiment on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape, taped the die cut Moroccan shapes next to it and added some thin twine on top. And to finish my card I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape!

And that is it for today’s fun layered card project! I wish you a creative day!
