Masculine Cards with Lindy’s

Hi everyone, today I’m showing you how you can create these masculine cards. All colours on these cards are Lindy’s Stamp Gang. Let’s get started!

Step 1:

For the first card I’m die cutting a rectangle panel two sizes smaller then my card base from watercolour paper. On this panel I apply some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical in “Jana’s Jade” using a fan brush, spraying the colour with water, which makes the colour run and drying with my heat tool when I like what I have. This I repeat until I’m happy with how dark the colour looks on the paper.

Next I run the coloured panel through my die cutting machine in an embossing folder by Coosa Crafts (“License”). I had hoped that the license plates would be better visible, but I’m going with how it looks!

Step 2:

For my second panel (same size) I’m applying some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste” over a TCW stencil (“TCW901s”) using a palette knife and then I set this aside to dry.

When dry I apply the same coloured powder over the background, working in the same way as the first panel. Because of the stenciled design this background turns out totally different.

To create a bit more interest in the background I create splatters using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Squirt in “Poutine Gold” and on the darkest panel I also add some white splatters using a white Posca marker (make the white paint flow and then hit the marker carefully with a pair of scissors).

Step 3:

Find some masculine images and stamp or print them (these are both by Doctor Digi) and then colour the images using Lindy’s products. I prefer to stamp images and then to clear heat emboss the black lines using a clear embossing powder (because the lines then will stay black and crisp), but these are digital images printed on thicker paper. This also means that after colouring the images I went over the lines with a black Copic MultiLiner (0.1).

I used the following colours : Squirt in “Beaver Tail Brown”, Magical Shaker in “Oom Pah Pah Pink”, Magicals in “Bonjour Butter”, “Mad Hatter Mint Green”, “Steampunk Sepia”, “Red Hot Poker Orange” and “Steel Shimmer”. I added multiple layers, mixed colours to create new layers and used water and brush to wash the colours out to create a feeling of depth.

When the colouring is done I added some white highlights using a white Gelly Roll pen.

Step 4:

For my sentiments I used two stamp sets by Clearly Besotted (“Laugh Out Loud Again” and “Say What?”). I used black card stock, before stamping I used an anti-static powder tool on the paper to prevent the embossing powder from sticking to other area’s then the stamped sentiment. I stamped the sentiments with VersaMark ink and heat embossed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Wowzers White” embossing powder.

After heat embossing I die cut banner shapes around the sentiments using two dies from the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners Die Set”.

Step 5:

Time to put my cards together! I die cut two slightly larger panels (one for each card) from matching terra cotta orange coloured card stock and adhered each slightly larger panel together with a watercolour panel using liquid glue. Next I decided on the banner placement and adhered the banner, wrapping one part to the back and adhering there using regular tape.

This combination I adhered to a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my card I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut images on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

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