AYSI245 Stampede Birthday

Happy Friday, peeps!  It's my turn to create a "recipe" for you at As You See It!  I always struggle with creating masculine cards, so here's a recipe to get you started:

And even though this was my own challenge, I struggled with it as well!  This is the third card I created for the challenge...the other two were not so great, LOL!  So here we go:

I started with a 100 Proof Press image, stamped in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla cardstock, then diecut with a Stitched Shapes die. The papers are from Photo Play's Autumn Day.  I embossed the rust-colored piece with the retired Basketweave EF, then added some stitched embossing on a Soft Suede strip as well.  For some added interest, I stamped some barbed wire (retired Yee-Haw) along the edge, and added a twine "lasso" behind the cowboy image:

The sentiment, stamped in Terracotta Tile, is from the retired Picture Perfect birthday:

My sketch is from Try Stampin on Tuesday:

I am also adding this to Just Add Ink this week, which is to "add L"!  My "L" is a lasso!

I hope you'll play along with my recipe this sure to check out what the designers created, and share yours as well at As You See It!

So let's see Cassidy's final result!  She really liked doing the splatter work, so this time, we watered down some white craft paint and she splattered that on her finished card:

After we dried it, she peeled off the letters:

Much better results!

She added a white heat-embossed sentiment at the bottom (the same as my card above), then added some numbers and a little hand-written sentiment on the inside!

She was happy with the end results, learned some new techniques and we had fun!  Thanks for indulging me!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love this card...I enjoy making masculine cards. The barber wire is a perfect touch.

Cassidy's card came out beautiful It's nice that she will sit and craft with you. Neither of my children had the patience for it.

Great guy card, LeAnne! I like "recipe" for masculine cards, too. The little details like your use of the basket weave EF really add the right kind of touch! Thank you for sharing your recipe and card with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna

Cassidy's card looks fabulous! I love those colors in the background, and her masking is really GREAT! Your cowboy on a bronco is perfect for a masculine card, especially in the barbed wire border and lasso setting! LOVE IT! thanks for visiting my blog today, LeAnne. hugs, de

Heather said...

Wow, LeAnne, this is a stunner! Such a great combo of colors, papers, textures, images - the whole package sings - in a a manly way, of course, lol. Love it! Thanks so much playing at TSOT!

This card reminds me of an old SU! set I once had that was a cowboy on a bucking bronco! I love that but I also love this one! The colors are bright, fun and the barbed wire is a fantastic accent to the western theme! Cassidy's card turned out so pretty and looks like a sparkly pastel rainbow! How lucky is the child who is blessed with a friend who makes cards for her! Good job Cassidy!

Oh I love the colors you’ve used on this “manly” card!!

Tina said...

Hehe, I never would have thought to add a lasso to the card - a very clever idea and very well executed. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink. Your daughter's card is amazing! Such cool effect. She could have entered too, with L for letters!

I think this is a great masculine card, LeAnn! Glad to know I'm not the only one who struggles to get a card right, but that usually happens with feminine cards for me. lol It's great to see that your grand daughter lover to create with you. :) Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
