Guy Style... by Pam

It's time to embrace our masculine creativity.

This month we hope to inspire and be inspired on projects catering to the Men. This doesn't mean it has to be grungy or anything. Just show us what you have in mind for the guys in your life.

Hi it is Pam today sharing with you my "Guy Style" for the Challenge! First, my guys are all a bit on the grungy side, lol. They love working in the yard, messing with cars and tools, hiking, fishing and anything outdoors. So my "Guy Style"  first of all means a salute to all the men in my life. I couldn't help but to create a Dad's  Day Card since it is in June, plus it gives me a chance to play with Emerald Creek's Seth Baked Texture and some a the Vintage Timepiece Stamp. 


The Baked Texture Vintage Beeswax is amazing....it gives such added depth to the already rich Baked Texture Embossing Powder.


Stop by my BLOG  for a step by step tutorial.

Hi everyone,
I was so excited when I saw the challenge for this month. I love Emerald Creek's newest embossing powders and Rocky Road is no exception. I wanted to create something with it for one of my guys and I did. Check out my YouTube video and blog for more on how this was made.

Hello everyone! Stephanie here to share my Guy Style project for the blog challenge for the month of May. Male themed projects are always a challenge for me. I did know I wanted to use the Baked Texture embossing powders for this one though! I think Patina Oxide and Chunky Rust were made for each other!! With the Baked Texture powders as my inspiration I dug through some of my vintage ephemera and found some nautical themed pieces: vintage napkin, old birthday postcard from 1913 and random Tim Holtz ephemera. I used the Seth Apter Frameups 1 stamp and cut the middle out to create a porthole. The "porthole" was then covered in Chunky Rust. I added Patina oxide to give it a true metal porthole feel. This piece was used to frame the male image. I layered several pieces of ephemera on the old postcard. I inked the edges of the various pieces with embossing ink and added a few layers of Baked Texture Ancient Amber. To complete the card I coated Emerald Creek Mini Camera Charm in Ancient Amber embossing powder  so it would match my card. I used a piece of fiber to attach the camera to an Emerald Creek Antique Silver Circle Dot Brad that I had coated in Charred Gold embossing powder. I absolutely love how well the metal charms and brads can be covered with embossing powder to perfectly match your projects!



Check out my YouTube to see the process video!
