Masculine and Feminie

Hi there! Amy Kolling from Lil' Inker Designs here! I'd love to share two projects with you today for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Contest using goodies from Lil' Inker Designs!!
 I am so excited to be here among the
I could not have gotten here without everyone who has taken their time to come vote for me.
Thank you so much!

This round's challenge was to create a card using a product for both a masculine AND a feminine card!  I decided to break out my NEW Texture Plate from Lil' Inker Designs.  If you have visited my blog lately, then you know that it is an AWESOME product that I dearly LOVE!  The other product I used on both cards was some sweet new denim paper from Simple Stories Summer Fresh line.

Here are my cards together..........


I decided to ink up my texture plate for a faux letterpress look.  I then cut out the center of the frame so that I could use it like a traditional frame!  So let's take a look at my feminine card.......


My color scheme was totally inspired by THIS paper by Simple Stories.  I just fell in love with this paper.  I used Sky ink from Amuse Studio for the letterpress color on the woodgrain frame.  I then carefully used a craft knife and ruler to cut out the center of the frame.  I then sewed together the pattern papers with a zig zag stitch and layered them behind the frame.  What about those flowers?
They are the rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.....miniature, medium, and large.  You may be thinking......she cut all those out??  Well yes, but this die is like a border die and can cut 6 roses at a time!  Saves lots of time!  Simply thread with a brad and adhere!


My masculine card was actually the first one I made of the two.  I knew I wanted to pair up my frame with this denim pattern paper again from Simple Stories.  Here the frame was made by using the faux letterpress technique using Kraft PTI ink onto Kraft cardstock!  Love the subtle look it gives.  My frame is then foam adhered onto the denim.  The tie die is from Wplus9 as is the matching stamp.  The die cut letters d-a-d are from PTI using more Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper!


Alright, there you have it!  I hope you all like it enough to VOTE for me!
If you want to vote, you can do so HERE.
Again, thank you so much for every bit of support you have shown over the last week......I have read it all and appreciate it soo much!
