Masculine card using die cut soda cans

Stop recycling soda cans! You need those soda cans for your crafts!

Here's a masculine card I made using distress ink and die cut soda cans. The front is made using a distress tool with a foam pad to pick up distress ink from a distress ink pad and them blend it onto the card front. The embossing causes the higher areas to naturally pick up more color.

The gears are die cut from aluminum soda cans using Spellbinders dies. Aluminum is a much softer metal than steel so any steel tool will easily cut it without damage. This is why knife manufacturers like to cut up soda cans and then cut up something delicate like a tomatoes.

Here's the card:

Little Girl Cards

It's been a while since I've put any of the new cards I made up on the web, but here are a few I have gotten the directions and pictures for up on the website.

As always, click on the images for full directions including the exact stamps used, paper sizes and marker colors.

This one is a combination of a Penny Black stamp colored with Copic markers, a Heartfelt Creations die and some nice DCWV paper. The image has been cropped down but the stamp was large that this had to be a 5x7 card to fit all the elements.
Same 5x7 card as above, but redone in purple.
A 4x6 card using a Sweet 'n Sassy stamps colored with Copic markers. All of the oval mats are done using Spellbinder dies.
