Friends of Unity Blog Hop June 2021~ Masculine


Hey there!! Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!!
Today the team is hopping with a new theme~ 
A lot of us struggle with masculine cards.
I hope you find some inspiration this month!! 
To start this month off I have chosen this motorcycle from June 2018 Kit of the month

For this card I only did embossing.
No coloring

I embossed the motorcycle in gold and the sentiment in black
I used my Tim Holtz paper shredding tool on the edges and some SU DSP
A bit of black paint splatters (looks like an oil spill) 😀

Using PTI kraft paper, and Versamark black ink and more black embossing powder, I again, did not have to color this one
 Like last month, I love using black on kraft for a clean, simple look 
I used a few stamp sets here...
The sentiment "You and Me" is from the January 2020 
The camper and sunshine are from (link below)
I used Kat Scrappiness mini slimline embossed edge for the main layer
Here's a link to KS and all her amazing Mini Slimline products

I plucked the branch out of a different KOTM and will post when I find THAT kit LOL 

The tire swing is from Rubbernecker
~I'm giving this last card to my husband
We will celebrate 37 years of marriage, June 17th

I sure hope you had fun with us this month

  7. I love this kind of inspiration - just embossing, no coloring - since I am not a very good colorist. I love them both. The gold motorcycle is really cool.

  8. This is wonderful. I am just not a colorer and am struggling terrible lately. These tone on tone with embossing and all the yummy oily techniques. Whew...they are truly a dose of crafty medicine I needed. Gorgeous cards! Happy Anniversary, many ,many, more! (((Hugs)))

  9. You did a fantastic job with this month's masculine theme. I like both of your cards, especially how you combined several different stamps in the second one.
