Manly Monday

I have another fabulous lineup of masculine cards for you to view this week for Manly Monday. There is a handful of Kenny K images, which you know I love to share, along with a bunch of other fun images and non-imaged cards. Sit back and take a stroll through the great inspiration of masculine cards. 

My card today uses a new to me Stampin Up background stamp that I heat embossed with white embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. Then I used distress inks by Ranger to fill in the land and sea of the map. Once I get the image to look how I wanted it to, I sprayed it with water and hit it again with the heat gun to speed up drying time. I really adore this map stamp because it can be used for some many occasions. 

I took two scraps of cardstock and punched a border {Fiskars} out of them and placed them back to back near the bottom half of the card front. Then I inked  the edges of a small tag, cut out using my Cricut, and stamped a Fiskars sentiment on it using Ranger Tumbled Glass ink. I adhered the tag to the card and then used my Attacher {Ranger} to secure it to the card front. All the cardstocks used in my card are by Recollections. 

Thanks for looking. new {The bg stamp is new} Make your own background Embossing {Heat embossed bg stamp}
