Whiskey Business Decanter


#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #masculine card #whiskeybusiness , Whiskey Business, Masking, Masculine Card, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A masculine card made with the Whiskey Business stamp set

A quick masculine card!  I had intended this to be for my son, who is employed as a Spirits Expert (some have all the luck!) and whose passion is Whisky - but, sadly, the set didn't arrive in time for his birthday.  

The card and layers are Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider and Whisper White.  The white layer is cut with Stitched Rectangle dies that I shortened into a square (the stitched square dies weren't quite big enough!).

In order to have the decanter sitting on the shelf, I first stamped the decanter, masked it and then stamped the shelf.

I stamped the decanter with Smoky Slate and the shelf with Cajun Craze. The greeting is stamped with Early Espresso ink.  I then used Stampin' Blends alcohol markers (seemed appropriate!) to colour the images.  The colours I used are Cajun Craze, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie.

To achieve the lighter shades in the decanter and whisky, I scribbled some marker onto an acrylic stamping block then picked it up on the tip of my Color Lifter to apply it,

So Much Love for Black & Gold


#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #heatembossing #somuchlove , So Much Love, Parisian Flourish, Heat Embossing with an embossing folder, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
Black & Gold card featuring the Parisian Flourish embossing folder & So Much Love stamp set

Well, the black and gold on Friday's card inspired me to look for some more things to do with that combination (which is one of my favourites!).

So I embossed some black cardstock with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder, first swiping the inside of the folder with Versamark ink.  After the run through the embossing machine, I added the gold embossing powder and heated it.

Then I gold heat embossed the images from the So Much Love stamp set onto a piece of black cardstock and cut it out with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I added some layers of Gold Foil Sheet and a bow of Boho Indigo Medley ribbon ... et voila!

Prized Peony on Forever Gold


#thecraftythinker #prizedpeony #cardmaking #stampinup #forevergold , Prized Peony Bundle, Forever Gold Laser Cut SDSP, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
I love the soft combination of Gray Granite with Petal Pink
contrasting with the dramatic black & gold Prized Peony

I was itching to use the Forever Gold Specialty Designer Series Paper again!  I do really love the black and gold combination but thought I'd try softening the look a little bit.

The base card is Gray Granite with layers of Petal Pink and more Gray Granite under that gorgeous piece of the Forever Gold lattice-type design.

The card is finished with pieces of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon and Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon with a scattering of Gilden Gems.

Thank you for visiting.

Game On - Royal Flush


#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #gameon #masculinecard , Game On, Masculine card, Tasteful Labels Dies, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A masculine card created with the Game On stamp set and Tasteful Labels Dies

Here's another card that I made with the Game On stamp set.  I decided to use a backdrop of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to provide a suggestion of a table top.

Having stamped the image with Basic Gray ink, I used a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker to add the red colour to the playing cards then cut out the image with one of the Tasteful Labels Dies.

To create the black label layer, I simply cut a label, cut it in half and adhered it underneath.

Game On - Chess Pieces - A Masculine Card

#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #gameon #2020annualcatalogue , Game On, In Good Taste DSP, Masculine card, Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A masculine created with the Game On stamp set and In Good Taste paper

Always on the lookout for the makings of a masculine card, I couldn't resist the Game On stamp set or the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

The base card is Gray Granite to which I added a layer of Basic Gray before adhering the couple of pieces of In Good Taste DSP.

I stamped the image with Basic Gray ink onto Whisper White paper, masked the image and then stamped the checker board design  - also with Basic Gray ink but stamped off first.  I coloured the chess pieces with Gray Granite Stampin' Blends alcohol markers and stamped the greeting with Basic Gray ink.

I cut the stamped images and the Basic Gray layer beneath with Stitched Nested Labels dies and adhered them to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

In my next post I'll share a card I made with one of the other images in the Game On stamp set - a very good hand of playing cards.

Thank you for visiting.

Boho Indigo Stamped Vase Card

#thecraftythinker #stampinup #cardmaking #bohoindigomedley #2020annualcatalogue , Boho Indigo Medley, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Stephanie Fischer, Sydney NSW
A simple card created with the Boho Indigo Product Medley

As promised, here's another very quick and simple card made with the gorgeous Boho Indigo Product Medley.

The base card is made from Misty Moonlight cardstock with a layer of the gorgeous Boho Indigo paper.

This time, I stamped the vase onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Misty Moonlight ink.  Then I added the gold heat embossed foliage and cut out the piece with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  I added a layer of Gold Foil Sheet before adhering to the card front (remember to cut out the centre of the gold foil to make it go further!).

I stamped the flowers and cut them out with the coordinating die included in the set and also used one of the dies to cut some more foliage from one of the papers.

Lastly, I added a little bow made from the Forever Greenery Trim.

I love these products, so I'm sure I'll be sharing more Boho Indigo project soon!

Thank you for visiting.
