Feminine & Masculine Birthdays!
Hi readers!! Happy Sunday to you!! We’re happy to be celebrating Winnie & Walter today on our blog; another great stamp company that joined in our STAMPtember® festivities!
Hello, Shay of Winnie & Walter here! Julie Mogford and I are so thrilled to be able to share in the STAMPtember® festivities! Simon Says Stamp holds a very special place in our hearts as so this is a very joyous month for us as well.
Today I wanted to share a couple of projects I made using our A Tree for All Seasons stamp set.
These cards began with the same central element (watercolored leaf panel) and design, but then by altering a few items I was able to make a more masculine and then a more feminine version.
How I Made the Cards:
For both cards: Stamp cat’s eye shaped leaf from stamp set in Versamark randomly and repeatedly on a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white cardstock. Heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Paint over leaf panel with distress ink diluted with water making sure to blend colors. Cut panel in half lengthwise so then you have two (2) 2.125 x 5.5 inch leaf panels.
Masculine version: Adhere a layer of navy cardstock behind the left hand side. Stamp sentiment with Versamark onto piece of orange cardstock and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Adhere on leaf panel. With dimensional foam adhesive add leaf panel to the right hand side of white A2 card.
Feminine version: Stamp sentiment with Versamark on a piece of vellum using powder tool applicator or embossing magic powder bag to dust powder over vellum before embossing (works wonders and especially needed for vellum). Sew sentiment to leaf panel. Go over thread with gold Wink of Stella pen. Cut out 2 vellum scallop edges from die and adhere on both sides behind the leaf panel. Place leaf panel on a white A2 card with dimensional foam adhesive. In Versamark stamp larger flower from stamp set 5 times on vellum and gold emboss. Fussy cut out flowers. Add to leaf panel. Top each flower with a pearl center.
Easy right? We hope you are inspired to try making masculine and feminine version of cards too and we would love to see them if you did.
Happiest of STAMPtember® to you!
