Art With Heart Team Creative Showcase for September is Masculine Themed


Welcome to the September Art With Heart Monthly Creative Showcase. This month the team are featuring Masculine themed cards.

Every second Thursday of the month the Art With Heart Team are here to inspire you with you their amazing creations on many different themes.

I usually find Masculine cards more hard to design than feminine ones with lots for flowers and fuss, but I'm very excited to show you what I have made for tonight.

I used my Happy Dies and some In Good Taste DSP for the main layer.

I cut another HAPPY from Early Espresso to make a shadow effect.
The mat behind Happy is Balmy Blue.

The BIRTHDAY stamp is from the Well Said stamp set and has been die cut with one of the Rectangular Stitched Dies made shorter by cutting once then repositioning the die to cut off the end of the die cut piece.

Inside the card is a little Pop Up surprise...

I have used the A Good Man stamp set to create this pop up in the center of the card. I originally found this technique demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire on Pinterest.

It's a very simple technique that I will be sharing in my Online Pop Up Class on the 24th of September.
The image has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Stampin Blends Markers.
The grass across the base of the card is two layers of Friendly Silhouette Dies in Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. The Linen Tread around the base of the card is the final touch.

The other Art With Heart Team members have been at their stamping desks creating more Masculine cards to inspire you. Click on the links below to see what they have to share.

The Art With Heart Team will be back next month with another Creative Showcase to share with you. Next month we will be sharing simple cards that use less than 5 supplies to make.

If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I have used to make this card the links to my online store are included below. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.

I will be back tomorrow to share another masculine card I have made with the HAPPY dies.

Happy stamping,


  1. Oh wow Rachel this card us soooo cool. I love it!!!

  2. This is a great masculine card that will definitely appeal to the outdoorsy guys!

  3. Great card, love the grass below the wood textured dsp.

  4. So love your card Rachel. Die cutting the In Good Taste DSP with HAPPY looks great, especially with the grass at the base. The pop up relaxing guy is a great touch. xxx

  5. I really love that grass in front. And the pop up would be such a surprise when the recipient opened the card - love it. Thanks for hosting.

  6. What a great masculine card, I love the Pop up inside your card Rachel.

  7. Wow Rachel, this is a really great masculine card. The pop-up inside is a fun little surprise, and I love the shadow effect on the word 'happy' and the grass reeds look fantastic too!
