Male birthday cards x 3



I have had a few male birthdays this month, so I thought I would share my cards with you.

I started them at a workshop then finished them off at home.

For the first one I have used a Sweet Poppy Stencil, the Dolphin

I used distress oxides for the background and stenciled the dolphin in black archival ink, but used grey for the rays, then I cleaned it off and flipped it over and did the same image in grey for a reflection.

I added a sentiment to finish


This 2nd one I have used Visible image Jazz it up stamps and visible image stencil, strobes.


I coloured the background in distress oxides and inked up the Jazz it up stamp in versa fine black onyx ink, then with the strobes stencil I inked my darker colour then drew around the strobes with a white pen and stamped some random shapes, which I outlined in both black and white pen.

I had a cello made from greyboard which I painted black and added the music stamp to it, which I heat embossed in gold embossing powder.

I added  the music sheet paper for the main image to be mat and layered onto,

and finished off with a pre cut sentiment and letters.


My final card for the month was made using the same method as above and the visible image Jazz it up stamp, and strobes, I finished this one off by stamping some circles using bottle tops and added my sentiments.

London here we come


Hi visitors

I am a little late in posting this card as the event is now over lol, but I made this card for my friend Allison to keep us motivated and focused as we were taking part in the London Winter run 2019 for Cancer research.

It was our 1st 10k run and we both had a great time running with our club B2R (Beginners2runners)

I stamped the Stampendous London image in black versa fine ink and heat embossed it then coloured it with inktense water pencils.

I masked up the main image and covered the top area in distress inks, sapphire blue and broken china, then using a stampscapes stamp for the clouds I randomly stamped over the sky area.

Then finished off with the sentiment

Thanks for looking today
