Hi, it’s Debby here today, and I have a rare masculine card to share.

It is all too easy for me to concentrate on making cards that appeal to me – lots of florals basically LOL. However, I do need some variety in my card stash so I set out to use the versatile Coffee Love Stamp Set to create this masculine card or equally a card simply for someone who loves a nice cup of coffee.

COFFEE LOVE

On a cold pressed watercolor card, I stamped the coffee pot repeatedly in black ink to create a pattern. I then loosely watercolored the pots and also the area around them. For the background, I chose deep, rich coffee colors and let them mix and blend together to give a spilled look. To complete the distressed look, I splattered the panel liberally with a solution of Perfect Pearls.

I stamped a sentiment from the set in black ink on a circle of ivory card and punched a small hole which I threaded through with an unusual safety pin I upcycled. I added the panel to an ivory card base, wrapped twine around and then added the sentiment circle with foam adhesive. For the finishing touch, I added a trio of toning crystal droplets.

Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you next time.

I am totally with you on the floral’s Debby, I could make them all day but when I need a masculine card, I struggle. (For me, they are kind of like sympathy cards, meaning, I need to make them ahead as I need to think about WHAT I want to do.) I cannot for the life of me just “whip up” a masculine card when I need one. This is fantastic. A great idea, thanks so much for sharing it. Heaven knows, I need all the help I can get in this department…LOL

wow! this one is really masculine. I can never think of masculine cards either. i think i might start a folder on my laptop to save masculine cards to give me ideas. this one will make a great beginning to the folder. I love the way you did the background and the shading on the pots. Love it! hugs, treen

What a fabulous card! I love the background and it does kind of look like spilled coffee. The distressing really adds to the look as does the shading on the pots. Beautifully done!!
