Now onto today's tutorial, If you are reading this post from a feedburner email you can see Heidi's Blog Video by clicking here. Today's tutorial is just 8 minutes long and it will certainly inspire you to get out your masculine stamps to design cards for all the men in your family.
For the first card I am using JustRite Papercraft CL-02168 A2 Woodgrain Upcycled Frame Background Cling Stamp and Rich Cocoa ink stamped on kraft cardstock.
I used Spectrum Noir Markers DR4 and DR6 to color on the frame. First I applied DR4 and then for the shaded areas I used DR6 and went back over with DR4 to blend the colors.
After all of the coloring was done I fussy cut the frame and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Next I stamped the airplane image from the CL-03740 Going Places Vintage Labels Cling Stamps on to white cardstock using Rich Cocoa ink. Next I used Spectrum Noir markers DR4, DR6, and EB3 to color the image. I used DR6 to do the shading on the airplane and then I blended the colors using DR4. I used EB3 to outline the image. Then I used JustRite Dies JB-03730 Vintage Labels & Banners Dies to die cut the label shape. After die cutting the label I left the paper inside the die and inked the inside edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
To assemble the card I used a brown base with a layer of red and then the stamped frame image. I added 3D Foam Squares to the label and to embellish the card I added a metal tag with some twine. Here is a close up of my card with the metal tag.

Card #2 – Good Times Good Friends
For the second card I used CR-02166 Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps to do the chalkboard technique. I used the Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings to cut the black banner shape.
Next I stamped the first sentiment from the Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps with white pigment ink (since pigment ink stays wet and I wanted a stronger white for this technique) I then used white embossing powder and a heat tool to heat set the embossing. Tip: before you apply hit flick your paper to get off any of the excess embossing powder. Be careful with the heat tool–they get very hot! Stamp the second stamp directly below the first one and emboss with the white embossing powder. Since the stamps are clear it is very easy to line up. Now it's time to create the chalkboard look.
I used a cotton ball and a dab it in the white pigment ink. Then gently rub some of the ink on to the black paper. To add some doodling along the edge of the die cut I used a Prismacolor Colored Pencil White.
Here is a close up of my card. To assemble the card I used a kraft base with a layer of aqua and another layer of kraft. I used Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings to create the largest die cut in Aqua. For a simple embellishment I added some twine and then placed the chalkboard banner on top.

Card #3 – Thinking of You
For the third and final card I used CL-03740 Going Places Vintage Labels Cling Stamps.
I stamped the image of the card with Rich Cocoa ink on to white paper.
I used Spectrum Noir™ Markers DG1, DG2, DG3 to color the banner area above the car. I used one of the dies from the JustRite Dies JB-03730 Vintage Labels & Banners Dies to die cut the label shape. Next ink the edges of the die cut with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
To assemble the card I had green for a base and then a layer of brown. I used Spellbinders S5-127 Labels Twenty-Eight to die cut the burlap. I added 3D Foam Squares to the back f the label and then I also added hot glue to secure the paper to the burlap.
For embellishments I added some metal gears and twine.
