Masculine cards with Glitz Design

Hi there! If you haven't yet took the opportunity to play along with this month's challenge at Glitz Design blog, I sincerely hope you'll take time to do so! As always, there's a chance to win lots of Glitz goodies, and the theme is as follows:

Let's hear it for the men in our lives! Although it's a true challenge for many of us (including myself) to create masculine projects, but I strongly believe that Glitz has the product that suits goth genders perfectly well. One of the things I admire about their collections, is that they fit well for just about any theme and occasion. Let me show you some examples...

This card was made entirely with the Pretty In Pink collection (apart from stamping). I put aside the pinks and used the earthy toned papers instead, to compliment the Paper Layer that I used for the base. Glitz also has a variety of amazing stamps, many of which are perfectly masculine, like this clock from Dance In Sunshine set.

Other: brown cardstock; string; buttons: Kaisercraft; sentiment stamps: Flourishes; sewing machine; inks: Memento Rich Cocoa & Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

For the next card, I used a cool blue base which I stamped with the grid pattern from Distressing set. It doesn't show up very well I'm afraid, it's a very subtle effect. I layered a transparency and stickers from different collections, and some ribbon, to frame the lovely, encouraging message.

Glitz Design "French Kiss" papers: Peek-A-Boo

Other: blue cardstock; sentiment stamp: The Craft's Meow; ink: Memento Summer Sky & Danube Blue, buttons; twill ribbon

  1. Hi Iwona - you are still the Queen of color! I love the clean lines and how you made the colors shine. The browns on the first, and the blues on the second. Gets the message straight accross and so many fab accents without all the fru fru.

  2. Both are very manly and awesome but I got to show a little extra love for that second one. The message is fabulous!!!
