I cased this card from a You Tube video a while back and now I cannot find the name of the person who created it.  If any of you out there know who I owe this inspiration to, please let me know so I can give her credit.
Both the dies and stamp set can be purchased together to save a 10% discount.  I used silver foil, Island Indigo, and Whisper White Card stock.  In addition, I used A little Foxy DSP, page 174 in the AC.  The embellishments, Urban Underground, page 47, are from the OC.  This is the coolest bundle, I love everything that goes with it.  No problem making masculine cards with this set.

We made this card at my camp on Saturday for Father’s Day.  I used the copper embossing powder on the Anchor and sentiment which are from the set, Guy Greetings carried over to the new catalog.  The other images are from “By the tide,” which is being retired at the end of the month.  In side the card we used the sentiments from the may Paper Pumpkin set that has all the different names if your are giving it to Brother, Son, Grandpa, etc.  The technique I used on this card is the Watercolor wash on Shimmery Card Stock.

If you came to my camp yesterday, you would have made this as our 3D item for Dad, Son, Grandpa, Brother.   Several choices to pick from.  The sentiment is from this month’s Paper Pumpkin set.  The images are from the stamp set, Swirly Bird, page 152 in the new AC.  I used Real Red and Pacific Point on the muslin bags.  These bags are being discontinued so if you want them, make sure you purchase them before the end of the month.

This set is so stinkin’ cute.  It is called Bear Hugs, and can be found on page 40 of the OC.  Matching Framelits are available too and you can get both at 15% discount if you buy the bundle.  That is a significant savings.  No more fussy cutting.  Love it!  The background paper is from Farmers Market DSP in the AC, page 143.  I used the sea grass stamp from the set, Wetlands, page 116 in the AC. The banner is stamped and cut out with the Number of Years set on page 11, and the matching Framelits on page 10 of the OC.

This was another card we made at Wednesday morning club.  I used the new DSP Neutrals collection and the stamp set, Guy Greetings found on page 98 of the new AC.  After I completed the card I felt it needed a little something more so I added the heart punched out from the Red Glimmer paper, page 149.  In addition, I used the Basic Black Bakers twine, page 158.  The file tab was created using the file tabs Edgelits on page 172.

Had to throw in a masculine card with the in colors to show that even though they are soft colors they can be used for men.  Here I used the set, Guy Greetings, page 41 in the OC, but soon to be carried over to the new AC.  I am so happy for that because we need more masculine sets for the men in our lives.
You will see that I have used this set many times lately because of Fathers day that will be coming soon.  I also used the set gorgeous grunge, page 165 in the AC, also to be carried over.  Very excited over that too, because it has become a core set for me.

Well this is another card for Father.  It could be Father’s Day or Happy Birthday.  I used the very masculine stamp set, Guy Greetings, page 41 in the OC.  In addition, I used the Adventure Bound Paper Stack found on page 40.  I colored the silver button with a red sharpie.

This is another card I created from the set, Guy Greetings found on page 41 of the OC.  The sentiments in this set can be used for Father, Brother, Dad, Uncle, Grandpa, or Husband.  You can do so much with the images because they are so awesome.  I love a set that has both images and sentiments, takes all of the guess work out of creating.  This can be either a Fathers Day card or a birthday card, or to tell that special man just how much you appreciate him.  The DSP is from Adventure Bound, page 40.
