New YouTube Series – Man Card Mondays Episode #1

6 Feb

I have started a new series on my Sewgoodall YouTube channel in response to a question I asked on a recent subscriber giveaway.  What would you like to see me create?  The overwhelming answer was masculine cards.  So, I started a series to give tips and inspiration to others who may struggle to make them.

Man Card Mondays #1

Masculine Valentines’s Day Card

The first episode debuted today and featured a Valentine’s Day card.  I used a few techniques such as embossing on cardstock and acetate, off setting the heart, and adding metal pieces, all things that work for masculine cards.

Cards and treat boxes

I hope that everyone had a great Valentine’s Day.  I just wanted to show the cards and treat boxes I made this weekend.  Above are a treat box from the Silhouette Store, a Skinny Tube Box from a file from The Cutting Cafe, and three cards I made for my god children and my hubby.  Here is another treat box I made and filled with chocolate for another young lady in my life…

Next, Betty who is scrappassion01 on YouTube hosted a hop called What’s Love Got to do With It.  To win prizes in the grand prize drawings you had to create seven things such as altered hearts, stick pins, altered dominos, etc.  Below are photos of what I created to enter the challenge drawing…

Valentine Lace Shaped Card and Altered Valentine’s Day Frame – This Week’s Cutting Cafe Design Team Projects

23 Jan

It’s Inspiration Wednesday and that means a new design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  This week the four files we were to choose from were so fantabulous that I could not just pick one!  So  I made two things! The first is a card using the Heart Lace Shaped Card Template Cutting File and A Love Story Sentiment Printable Stamp Set for the inside sentiment.  The outside sentiment came with the card file.

This file is a cutting file but with all of the files at The Cutting Cafe, you get many options.  I used the PDF and just printed it onto red cardstock.  I did not cut out the inside circles (which would have created the lace effect).  I liked the way the bold outlines looked.  I just Stickled a few hearts, added mesh bling trim, a ribbon slider and flat back pearl, and the sentiment.  For the inside, I used the circle version of the sentiment I chose.  It came in various formats (another plus with many of The Cutting Cafe files).  I punched it with a Fiskars punch, and put it on a circle cut out with an EK Success punch.  The inside heart is just a smaller version of the card.

My altered frame used the Valentine Mini Sentiments Backgrounds Printable Stamp Set.  I used the Happy Valentine’s Day version in color.  The stamps also come in black and white versions.  The paper I covered the wood frame with was a bit mod 60’s but I liked it.  I added some pearls, roses, glittered butterflies,and hearts.  I think it is cute and I liked the way it turned out.  This was a bit different for me but I like it.

Love Note Valentine Card Swap

18 Jan

I am participating in a swap on YouTube that is hosted by Markisha who is Staplem1 on YouTube.  There were two group choices.   We could choose to do Parisian or Shabby Chic.  It had to be an A2 sized card with at least three embellishments, a sentiment, and had to be finished both inside and outside.

Tri-Fold Valentine Card for The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

9 Jan

Today is Inspiration Day over at The Cutting Cafe!  That means new projects will be featured on the blog from the design team later on today.  I am excited to see all of the other designer’s projects!  This week we were given the task of using the Feb. 14 Printable Stamp Set.  I love all of the wonderful images in this file.  But because I used to do puzzles a lot, I was drawn to the puzzle images and used this for my project.  I also used one additional new file the Valentine’s Day Crossword Puzzle Printable Set and Colorbok paper and die cuts, K & Co. layered stickers, Spellbinders dies, and  a Martha Stewart Punch.  I also wrote the sentiment and inside middle copy.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit the blog for new inspiration!
