You're the Man Blog Hop

So glad you stopped by today it's the
"You're the Man Blog Hop"
 
if you stumbled here by chance you will want to start at the beginning of the hop
if you arrived from
you are in the right place
Mary has divided the Cardz TV Design Team
into a Saturday Team and a Sunday Team,
It's the weekend and we've work hard all week
so take a little "ME" time
grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax,
and get ready for some fun, inspiration,
and the chance to win some blog candy along the way
 And don’t forget to come back tomorrow to Cardz TV for Day 2
with our Sunday team, for even more fun, inspiration
and another chance to win some great blog candy!
Here's what I made for today's blog hop using 
"You're the Man"
Cardz TV Stamps
now normally I don't enjoy making Masculine cards
because I can't add all the things I love like crinkle ribbon, bows and bling
but this card I had a blast with
I started with an a2 base pure poppy, then a mat of vintage cream
then true black. and kraft, photo finish strip die all from Papertrey Ink
to make the kraft look like peg board
I used my scal program and sure you could do this on your gypsy,
cricut craftroom or on you silhouette software
I am a made a little circle .25" and did a copy then auto fill
next I made a rectangle 5 x 3.75
and a moved it over the circles until all the edges were even
then I deleted all the circle outside of the rectangle
 love the way it came out
Next I cut out the tools from a file "Tools" from
now to make the metal parts of the tools is really an easy process
ink them with versa mark then silver embossing powder
and heat emboss repeat that 3 times
Now for the sentiment &  faces (which is my favorite part)
I stamped the glasses and mustaches with memento tuxedo black ink
 cut them out by hand and added them to the tools with some google eyes
in the corners took some red brads and sanded them so the metal would show through
the inside
 
Now your next stop
the very talented
oh.....
