Video - Easy Cards For Men and Boys With Stencils

I never have enough cards for men and boys and I often hear from other card makers that masculine cards are the hardest cards to make. In my newest video here, I show how easy it is to make great cards for boys of any age when we combine stencils with great dies and stamps. 
The first time I saw this super funny stamp set from Your Next Stamp I knew I had to get it because I love to make cards that make people laugh! I also had the perfect designer paper and a neat stencil from Gina K Designs, but both of them seemed a bit feminine for this card. However when I brushed on brown ink through the stencil, it added a perfect masculine touch and I love how the card turned out for the next time "shiitake" happens to a guy I know! 

I made this card for a special young man using a great new firetruck stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions. It looked weird to just plop the die cut firetruck down on the card front, but when I added a grey stenciled pattern using the Stretched Xs stencil from A Colorful Life Designs, the truck was grounded and looked great! Here is a picture of the inside of the card which is an inside spinner card I learned how to make from Jennifer McGuire here.

The inside round circle spins around on a thread and I also stenciled on some more tracks to complete this fun card for a special boy. 

To see how easy it is to use great stencils on fun cards for guys of any ages, watch the new video here. Thanks for your visit here and for your support of my YouTube channel too.
