Over on Bubbly Funk's emag aka Bubbly Scrumptious it's my turn to add today's project. I've made a couple of cards this week using the current month's kit which is a mix of all sorts of interesting papers, shrink plastic, chipboard and other bits and pieces, the kit is called "His & Hers" because it contains stuff suitable for both male and female projects.
A couple of weeks ago I made a card for a baby boy, so this week I've made one for a baby girl and again used the shrink plastic in the kit to make my embellishment. Last time I used a stamp, but this time I'm showing a different way to add an image to the plastic. If you like the idea of using SP but like me don't have many large stamps to use then maybe this is something you could try too
Also in the August kit is a chipboard alphabet - I love this type because you get two of each letter plus the "negative" which you can use too. The set in the kit is all capital letters and I've made a monogram card with one of the letters.
I think these are just perfect for masculine cards, make a monogram, add some patterned paper and maybe a brad or three and you're all done! I'm really pleased with the "faded paint" look on this one - I used a few of my Cat's Eye ink pads to get the colours and "feel" I was after.
This one will be for my brother, if I haven't forgotten all about it by December! Not that he'll appreciate the effort of course; as I've mentioned before his company make cards/stationery stuff and he thinks all us cardmakers are stealing the bread from the mouths of his children! lol
Anyway, these projects can be found HERE, it would be lovely if you'd take a look and leave a comment there if you've a minute.
Thanks for looking
