Top Tip Tuesday Guest Designer male card Spitfire Delicious Doodles

Good morning! Thanks for stopping by.  I was lucky to be picked as Top Tipper over at Top Tip Tuesday a few weeks ago, and was asked to be guest designer for their challenge this week.  The challenge is to use metal faux or real! So I have used some metal charms and wait for it... I have a done a male card. I KNOW! shock horror lol!!! I have used "spitfire" from Delicious Doodles, and didnt have to colour it at all- super simple!  The sentiment is a combination using a Popcorn bear sentiment and a Whimsy notables 2 outer frame stamp and cut with the notables 2 die. I used DP from two Prima pads- called "Cartographer"  and "engraver".  Die cuts are using magnolia swirl die, Cheery Lynn Gears die and Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl die.  The charms are from Nini's Things on facebook. 

Here's my top tip for the challenge: When distressing edges of your cardstock, ink the edges and distress whilst still wet.  Place the edge of what you are going to distress onto your table leaving about 1cm hanging over the edge of your table. Working from the centre of your cardstock and out to the corner, distress using your distressing tool. This way, your corners stay intact, and your paper will not get creases in it. The slight wetness left by the ink helps it “puff”up.

So now its your turn.... Pop over to Top Tip Tuesday and show us your metal! and while you're there, why not leave a tip to help us all craft a little easier and you could be the next Guest Designer?!

Thanks for stopping by. Stay Safe XOX Tania
