MFT'S Creative Challenge - Crafting for the Men in Your Life

Thanks for stopping by for MFT's May Creative Challenge. This month's challenge is all about the boys in our lives. All too often, the boys and men in our life get lost in the shuffle when it comes to handmade cards and gifts. With Father’s Day approaching, we couldn’t think of a better time to get in touch with our masculine side.

I really enjoy having a stash of tags ready to go, but I don't ever seem to make masculine tags. So today I have four tags to share with you. 

The base of all my tags are cut with the Pierced Traditional  and Traditional STAX Die-namics.

For my first tag I used the Suit and Tie Die-namics. Before I cut the suit I stamped a piece of Steel Grey Card Stock with the Pinstripe Background Stamp in Sweet Tooth Ink. The sentiment if from the Clearly Sentimental about Fathers Stamp Set and cut out with a die included in the Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

My second tag again uses the  Suit and Tie Die-namics to cut the tie. I also used the Pinstripe Background Stamp before I cut out the tie, only on the tie I used the stamp on the diagonal, using Electric Red Ink

I used burlap for the background and added the circle with the Pierced Circle Stax Die-namic and Night  Shift Blue Card Stock. This sentiment is also from the Clearly Sentimental about Fathers Stamp Set .

On this tag I used the Pegboard Cover-Up Die-namics for the background. The tools are created with the dies in the Tool Time Die-namics. And the sentiment is from the Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

My final tag is birthday themed. I used the Accent It - Rock and Roll Die-namics. The star is cut from gold glittered card stock.  The "Rock On" Sentiment is from the  Document It - Rock On Stamp Set, stamped in gold Ink, then embossed with gold embossing powder. The "It's Your Birthday" if from the Journal It - Playlist Stamp Set. 

Here are the products I used to create my tags:
