A couple of Stampin’ Up! sets I just had to have for manly cards, “In the Wild” and “On the Fly!” Such great masculine cards. The problem is always just how to complete them.
The buffalo card was completed using paper from Carta Bella, “The Great Outdoors” stack, where I found this 4×3″ piece that made the perfect Indian blanket. The directional image was also cut from one of the papers. I hand stitched the edges of the blanket using linen thread. The background wood paper is from SU. Stamp Sets Used: In the Wild and Thoughtful Banners. Inks: Soft Suede. CS: Crumb Cake and Soft Suede. I used a dotted rectangle framelit from Stamps of Life.
The fishing card was completed using Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke SU CS, and embossing folders. The first card has a dotted rectangle framelit from SOL and was colored using a combination of SU markers and Prismacolor pencils. Stamp Sets Used were “On The Fly (long retired),” and the sentiment was a Paper Pumpkin sentiment from my stash. The background fish paper was from Carta Bella, “The Great Outdoors.”
The second fishing card was completed using The Woodland Embossing Folder from SU, Layering Dies and Stitched Oval Dies from SU. Stamps used were “On the Fly” and “Another Great Year.” The background dotted paper was from Papertry Ink. The furry “fly” and “hook” were embellishments from my stash. I used SU linen thread to wrap.
Hope you enjoy these.
