Stampin' Dreams - July 2020 - Male Card (Any Occasion)...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Stampin' Dreams July Blog Hop.

This month we have been given the theme Male Card, for any occasion.  I think we all struggle a little with male themed cards, I am not sure why but most crafters will say the same.

Not this time though as we recently saw the release of the new stamp set called Game On.

I started with a Basic Black card base and cut out a further piece of Basic Black one centimetre smaller than my card front.  I then cut out some 3cm Whisper White squares and arranged them in a chequer board pattern.


I then stamped two sets of the chess pieces and coloured one set using the new Water Painters.

I matted the chequer board background on to Pretty Peacock cardstock before mounting it on to a Basic Black card base.  The white chess pieces are glued flat and the black chess pieces are mounted using 3d foam.

I cut a banner using a brand new punch coming in the Autumn/Winter catalogue and stamped the greeting from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp sets using Real Red ink.




Finally, I added a few new embellishments which are also coming in the Autumn/Winter catalogue which launches next month.

I hope you have liked my project today and I would love to hear what you think so would be grateful if you could leave me a comment below.

Happy Craftin'
