"Movember" Blog Hop with Scrap N' Stamp Canada!

Hello friends and welcome to our monthly blog hop for Scrap 'N Stamp!  As many of you likely know, November has become the month where men are encouraged to grow facial hair in support of men's health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide.  This month is known as "Movember". It's a great way to support and bring awareness to men's issues! So, that's what our theme is this month...moustaches or masculine cards! Stay tuned until the end of this post for information on our new Challenge, Prizes and a complete list of the hop!!


I think it's important to be supportive to men in their time of need. They often down play any aches, pains or emotions of fear and sadness (in my experience anyway). So, I made a subtle, masculine card that could be given to friend or significant other.


I started by using the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies from Hero Arts to cut 5 circles out of a white card panel. Before die cutting the circles, I made sure that my moustaches would fit inside.  I ran that white panel through my die cutting machine with a woodgrain embossing folder from Tim Holtz (it's old).

I went through my patterned paper stash and found a very manly looking print which I adhered to the back of the embossed panel.  Now let's talk about those moustaches!  They come from an adorable set of dies called Retro Masculine.  This is a fantastic set of dies that includes more than moustaches and will be a huge help when designing your masculine cards!


I chose 5 different 'staches and used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Inks to add the colour.  I die cut each one 4 more times from scrap white cardstock and adhered them all together to give dimension.

I adhered the embossed panel onto an A2 kraft card base and added some stitching detail around the base of the card.  I should also mention that I lightly inked the edges of the white cardstock with the Vintage Photo ink as well!


I used a sentiment from the Bitty Bears stamp set from MFT and white heat embossed it onto a die cut banner strip.  I applied a heavy layer of the Walnut Stain ink over top.  And because I didn't want to add any sparkly embellishments, I added a layer of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to each of the moustaches. An that completes my Moustache Masculine Card!!

Now onto the fun stuff...
