Tanya's Card using the Guy Greetings Stamp Set

I have been making some male cards with this wonderful stamp set "Guy Greetings", it has become my go to stamp set for my male cards. I love the versatility of the stamp set using different techniques. Check out my UTUBE CHANNEL for some tutorials coming very soon on this set.

With my card I started off making my base card with Night of Navy Cardstock, next layer was Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then the third layer was the new DSP Wood Textures (this is a great DSP for all your male cards). Using my Stitched Shaped Framelits I cut a piece of watercolour paper with the largest oval and sponged it with my brayer using Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink Pads to create a background. I then using the two largest oval shapes together created a border around the cut out oval on the front of the card. I stamped and coloured the image of the car and watercoloured it with my Aqua Painter and Ink Pads and adhered it to the sponged background. I then used dimensionals to adhere the second car. Finally added some other images with dimensionals from the same stamp set and some of the lovely new 3/8" Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon.

  1. Awesome Ange! I just love that wood grain and the use of the Stitching thinlits!

  2. Ange, that's stunning! You're cutting skills are out of this world! And I love the colour combination in your (pefectly) sponged background. Awesome!

    1. Thank you so much Stephanie, you are too kind. This is my stamp set to go to when doing my male themed cards. The sponged area was a breeze with the new spong brayer. I will be doing some tutorials on these cards this month over on my utube channel if you want to check it out. Angexx
