Here's a quick look at the January 2020 It's All About the Boys card kit...






Isn't that just a fabulous kit for all your masculine card needs!?! I'm so excited for this kit!

Let's get to the cards I created...



Collection One: Gnome What
Eeep! Gnomes!!! So... I am loving the gnome trend going on and these guys are just so much fun! I had a blast coloring them up and then fussy cutting them out. And just a note about that... there's a fabulous Gnome die included in the Banana Split subscription to die cut these sweet gnomes out but I haven't received mine yet so I had to fussy cut them. If you don't like fussy cutting, be sure to get the Banana Split subscription!! Anywho, this fun card measures 4-1/4" squared and I added a 4" squared piece of the patterned paper along with some stitched squares. So fun! I stamped the sentiment with the Spiced Marmalade distress ink included in the Banana Split subscription (colors vary). And then I used my favorite sentiment banner die to cut the sentiment out. I popped up the gnomes along with the sentiment. Love how this card turned out!!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics: Noses ~ E000, E00, E21; Beards ~ N0, N1, N2, C00, C1, C3; Hats ~ W00, W1, W3, W4, B0000, B000, B60, E95, E99, YG11, YG61, YG63; Shoes ~ E09, E11, E13
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Taylored Expressions Stitched Square Stacklets dies
Lawn Fawn Everday Sentiment Banners dies


Collection Two: Buffaloed
I used this awesome collection for my sneak peek card, you can check that out here ---> It's All About the Boys Card Kit sneak peek! I love this collection!! The buffalo check papers and this cool buffalo are amazing! Perfect for masculine cards! I trimmed my layers of card stock for my card and adhered them to a black card base. I then die cut the rectangle piece and adhered it to the card. I stamped the buffalo onto the white card stock flag that is included in the collection and colored him up pretty simply with gray copic markers. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with the sentiment banners die. I then adhered the flag and sentiment to the card... done!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copics: N0, N2, N4, N7, C00, C1, C3
Memento Tuxedo black ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX
Lawn Fawn Everday Sentiment Banners dies


Collection Three: Birthday King
I am loving the size of the stamp in this collection! How awesome is that?! I love it! So, I had a bit of fun with this card. I wouldn't normally add glittery fun to a masculine card, but I think since it's a card fit for a King... it works!! I adhered all of my layers of patterned paper together and then adhered them to a white card base. I then stamped the 'Birthday King' sentiment using Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink... I did this in my Stamp Platform so that I would get a nice crisp inked sentiment. Keeping with the royal theme of this card, I used a fun stitched bracket die to die cut the sentiment. I then popped it up on the card with foam tape.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Taylored Expressions Stitched Bracket Stacklets dies



Collection Four: Tool Time
I was pleasantly surprised to see a gatefold card in our sketches for this month! When I saw the papers for the Tool Time collection, I knew I had to use them with the gatefold card sketch! Such a fun masculine card!! The cork stickers included in the collection are amazing too! They were easy to stamp on. I placed the whole sheet in my Stamp Platform and stamped the sentiments and saw a few times with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. Easy peasy! I layered the cork sticker on a couple of card stock pieces and adhered it to my belt. Now I have a Father's Day card ready to go and it's only January!! Woohoo!!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Ranger Archival Jet Black ink

  4. Love the Gnome card, it is so cute. My favorite card is the tri- fold card with the beey band as very different style. The color palette for all is amazing, just as your cards. Thanks for sharing.
