I’ve made a number of masculine cards over the years using trucks and cars; they’re a popular image for the guys in our lives and I enjoy the break from florals! This card was made using a car from the long-retired Classic Convertibles set by Stampin Up. I heat-embossed the image in black then cut it out and colored with Zig markers. I needed a map background so googled Vermont road maps and printed this off on the computer and roughed up the edges after smudging with Pumice Stone and Walnut Stain distress inks. The Route 66, tire track and Road Trip images are from Tim Holtz’ Road Trip set and I stamped those right over the map. I used a diamond-plate embossing folder on the base card and smudged Walnut Stain distress ink over the raised part to get the grungy look. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp’s I’d Go Anywhere set.
Another awesome vintage car from Stampin Up’s set, colored and cut out. I printed out this map of Vermont, smudged Pumice Stone distress ink around the edges, stamped the mileage stamp in red from the same Tim Holtz set and the sentiment from Fiskars Let’s Get Lost was heat-embossed onto the map. This was a quick and easy card!
For this card I used Deep Red Rubber Stamp’s Chevelle, colored and cut out. The same printed out Vermont map with more images from the Tim Holtz Road Trip set and the sentiment is from The Stampin Place. The interstate sign image is from the Fiskars set I mentioned previously and it has an empty space for whatever numbers you choose! I stamped in the 89 because that’s our main highway here in Vermont! I smudged ink around the edges, roughed it up with my scissors, then tore and curled up a corner for a fun, distressed look! Layered onto a red panel, then a black card base, I think this is a pretty cool card!
Another combination of Stampin Up and Tim Holtz! The awesome embossed background is Tim Holtz Travel Signs on kraft cardstock, smudged with Walnut Stain distress ink. A strip of colorful Tim Holtz patterned paper on a narrow panel of red card stock really pops!
The last in my series of trucks and cars, this truck is from Deep Red Stamps as well! I stamped it in the center of a piece of white card stock, then masked it in order to stamp the other images around it. They’re from Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments . I then uncovered the truck, colored it with a red Zig marker and glazed it with a coat of Glossy Accents. The PTI set came with the little star stamp which I randomly stamped in red around the card front. I trimmed the panel down to layer onto black, then onto a base card of Stampin Up Crumb Cake on which I’d embossed their folder called World Traveler. I hope you enjoyed this series of masculine cards!
