Today I'm sharing a video on how to re-create the look of stamped leather. It's a super quick and easy to execute technique and is perfect for those always hard to come up with masculine cards. In the sample above I used the Four Feathers set and matching Framelits from the Holiday Catalog. I love the look of the faux leather with the sparkle of the Glimmer papers!

For my second sample I went all out with the masculine theme - I think it will be perfect for my Brother-in-Law's birthday. I began by stamping the Moose in Chocolate Chip ink then creating a mask from a sticky note and covering the original image. I was then able to stamp the tree line behind the Moose along with the spruce trees along either side. The remainder of the card was created using the same technique that I show within the video.
