This card is actually one that I am almost ready to submit to Kaszazz as a demonstration card (so any consultants looking...no getting any ideas!!! hehehe).
This card is made using Aspen and Pinecone bazzill, Madero Beach card (Neutrals A5 card pack), green/cream mini gingham and aged copper spiral clip. The image used is 1535LJ Train and this has been stamped in Coffee Bean Vivid! ink.
Hope this gives you all some inspiration for male cards...Father's day is getting close! Be sure to check out the blogs of the other Kaszazz Blog War girls (see blog list on right of this page) for plenty more inspiring ideas.
My oh my I have been slack with my blog lately...let's hope that this time I can post a little more often! I just seem to have been so busy lately with work, craft and Chloe (I can't believe she is 19 months old now!).
Anyway, I am aiming to re-commence the Kaszazz Blog Wars this week so keep an eye out on my blog to see some great creations. Please also be sure to check out the blogs of the other participants.
Hope you are looking forward to some creative inspiration this week with a Male card theme.

For those that have not yet seen...Kaszazz released some new products today and they are FAB! The bella papers look gorgeous, the stamps as always are fantastic but we also have the 150mm chipboard scallop circles, the Girls Things charms, the ink blending tool and the mini mister organiser. Another fantastic item(s) in the new release is the A to Z album...basically it is a set of different kits to allow you to create a page and pocket layout (1 12x12 page and 6 4x6 mini pages to fit the pocket page inserts in the pebbles albums) for each letter of the alphabet...what a great way to do a year in review album! Check out the new release at www.kaszazz.com
Anyway, keep looking at my blog over the next 2 weeks as I may still upload some pics f my cards I am designing even if they don't fit with the blog war theme.

Day 2 - Shimmer Tag
For this tag, I have created a shimmer spray by adding the following to a mini mister filled 3/4 of the way with water
*3 or 4 drops of Spiced Marmalade Ink refill
*Small scoop (half little finger nail size) of sunflower sparkle perfect pearls
Screw lid back on tightly and shake to mix.
I have basically spritzed the tag with this mix and dried with my heat gun. From there I have stamped my image and sentiment using the black soot distress ink and egded the tag with the spiced marmalade ink pad.
Day 3 - Castaway Cosmos Card
Ok now the featured items in this project are the cosmos stamp (from our January release and one of my faves), castaway paper and tea dye distress ink. I have used the distress ink in a couple of different ways for this card. To start with I have attached the castaway paper to whirlpool bazzill and edged the bazzill with tea dye ink using the hydra sponge. The sentiment has then been stamped with the tea dye ink in the normal way. The tag is the fun thing. As promised I have incorporated the mini mister so this time I have just made a mix of water and about 5 drops of tea dye distress ink refill. So to do the tag I have stamped the cosmos image onto a white tag with watermark ink and then heavily spritzed the tag with my ink solution (you want to be very generous so there is almost a puddle across your tag...dry the tag using the heat gun and watch at how the stamped image absorbs the exta colour from the spray. This is a great way to create a subtle image on a distress project...I might just have to try this on a layout. Oh obviously to finish the card I simply edged the tag with the ink and hydra sponge attached the aged copper spiral and mounted on card using magic mount.
I have started playing around with this same mix of ink and water to see how the mix reacts with different things so hopefully come the end of the week I can fill you all in.
Distress ink is definately versatile.

Ok...a small gift card! I have used the vellum to create a faux lace. To make the lace edge I used the corner rounder punch (without the corner guide in) to create the scallop edge. I then used the medium and small holes in the silent setter and then dry embossed to emphasize the ede with the bone scorer. I have used the small rose from the latest release and used fluid chalks to stamp the image and edge the papers.
Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win 3 sheets of 12x12 vellum. Be sure to visit the other girls blogs too...we all have giveaways as part of our blog war!!!
