Masculine - Need for Speed

Wow, where has the time gone? My intention is to regularly upload my cards to my blog but sometimes things can get a little hectic and before you know it the month has gone by, I do apologise, this is where my time has gone, my youngest is starting school next year and the school has a transition period where he goes to his new school for a few days at the end of the year and that way it is familiar when he goes next year and you would not believe the paperwork that goes with it. Anyway I have finally managed to get into my craft room which I have missed terribly and since it is my father-in-laws birthday this month I came up with this masculine card. I used the stamping off technique so the background was lighter which makes the plane and the splotches stand out more, better effect I think.

Here is what I used to make it:

Cardstock: Whisper White, Smokey Slate
Ink: Smokey Slate
Stamps: Clockworks, Need for Speed, French Foliage & Sassy Salutations


Base: 14cm x 28cm (pre folded)
          14cm x 14cm (folded)
Smokey Slate layer: 13.5cm x 13.5cm
Whisper White layer: 13cm x 13cm

Gingham Calendar

Here is another project I did for the craft fair, the base is Island Indigo which is cut to 4" x 8" and scored at 2" and 4", fold the card in half and fold the 2" section inwards this makes the base of your easel card. The Whisper white cardstock is cut to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and the Gingham Garden DSP is cut to 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" adhere these to the section that folds inwards then add the calendar etc.  I used the following to create this calendar:
