Today, and for a couple of more blogs, I thought I'd show you a range of stamps and cards I discovered a while ago. The stamps are Loralie Art Stamps and there are a great variety of quirky designs which at first, I wasn't sure of but when I had to make a couple of cards for men, I thought fitted the remit rather well.
The first card I had to make was for my son. He does love cooking, when he's got the time, experimenting and bar-b-ques etc and he and my daughter-in-law love entertaining.
So I chose this stamp, called Beau as I thought it was a rather appropriate and not too feminine. I used my watercolour pencils to colour him in, and I thought it came out rather well. I matted the stamped outline onto black card, having distressed the card slightly. I then used some card which I had embossed using the Hougie board, drawing straight lines across the whole card and then distressing it to match the card. This was also matted onto black card. The whole thing was then mounted onto Crafters' Companion Hint of Silver Centura card. I then added a few Craftwork Cards' card candy to match. The sentiment stamp was one I bought in Australia.
This is the inside page as the stamps give you more than just the main element. You have the facility to re-stamp the burger, the shoes and also the hat which would lend itself to decoupage too. Brilliant!
Thank you for looking.
