Welcome back to another Three for Thurdsay post here at Scarlet Moon Crafts. This week I am turning my attention to the boys! I have my teenager’s 17th birthday looming and my husband is about to graduate university – not to mention Father’s day is fast approaching! Have you ever noticed that it can be tough to find gorgeous craft supplies for adult male cards and projects? I am like a little magpie drawn to bright colours and glitter so my stash needs a serious testosterone injection. I have sat down with a cuppa and the Stampin’ Up! catalogue and found some wonderful products for male projects. These are my top three!
3 – Bookcase Builder Stamp Set
This is not necessarily a male orientated set, but I think the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set is a great option if you want to make a card for a male friend or relative. It is ideal for building up a bookcase to replicate his office or man-cave, but it is versatile enough that you can make a card for just about anyone. It is also great for new home or new job cards!
2 – One Wild Ride Stamp Set
These One Wild Ride Stamps are great for making male cards and projects, even if the man in your life is not a biker. You could also use them to document bike shows, trips to the transport museum or even road trips. This is a two step stamp set which means that you can build up the image your way!
1 – Urban Underground Suite
My top pick for this week is the Urban Underground Suite. Sometimes it is really hard to find a nice ‘male’ or at least gender neutral kit that is not for kids. I think the Urban Underground Suite really hits the nail on the head – if you pardon the pun! The core colours are Basic Black, Basic Grey, Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla with a touch of silver foil. Although the overriding theme of the set is actually construction and father’s day, the patterns on the paper are geometric and would actually work well for any occasion and any gender. I’ve seen it paired with the Beautiful You Stamp Set for a really feminine card too, so it is really versatile.
