It's August 1st, if you can believe it!! Which means a new theme, and this month we are focusing on masculine themed cards. Navy with gold or copper is a great combo.
On Midnight card stock I heat embossed the Herringbone background stamp in both Metallic Copper and Metallic Gold Rich. This looks absolutely fabulous!
Because these are masculine cards, I decided to cut out the word 'dad' with Altenew alphabet dies. These are cut out of white card stock, and then on these I heat embossed the gold and copper on the bottom half. I simply dabbed the letter on the Embossing Pad then dipped it into the jar of embossing powder. With the heat tool I set the powder. I did also do a little experiment so see how the different settings affected the melting. You can see this in action in the YouTube video.
I also stamped up a couple of sentiments from an MFT Stamp sentiment set called Coffee Break. I used Midnight ink on white card stock. These I trimmed down so they were really slim.
To bring in the coffee theme, I diecut two coffee cups out of white card stock. These dies are Coffee Blend Turnabout coordinating dies. On these I stamped up the coffee art, from the stamp set, with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink. To add some pattern on the cups, I used the Bitty Burst Turnabout stamp with Midnight ink first, and then each cup was also heat embossed in the gold and copper.
With all these bits and pieces done, it was quick work putting the cards together. They have the same bits, but I added them in slightly different ways so they aren't exactly the same.
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed these cards and the video! It's now your turn! Make a card with the theme, add it to the August photo album in the Facebook group, and you will be in with a chance to win a £15/$15 gift voucher to the WOW! Embossing shop.
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
