Oh Man!

Welcome back to another Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge!  The talented Jenny is the host for the challenge this time and she is challenging to think masculine with a "Oh Man!" challenge.  Here is how she describes the challenge:

"Fathers Day may be a way off yet but there are always other occasions and reasons for making something for the men in our lives. For this challenge create something which you feel has a more masculine look."

I decided to have the professor as my focal point in a fun flip book!

 I have been having so much fun with my new stamps.  There is nothing like inking up and stamping on all different shapes and sizes!  I stuck with a series of more male related colors like blue, green and a deep plum all aged with distress inks.

I started with a few die cuts and then cut random shapes and sized to layer.  I laid them out on the table and tried different combinations until I got the layers I wanted.  Once I had that I started stamping images.

I took all these photos of the flip pages and just realized I didn't flip the little butterfly down to show you the bigger butterfly. :)  So I will show you what the page behind the big butterfly looks like.

I took and created a little tab with a little pocket and some circles stamped and cut out to create my mask for my professor.  :)

 When you flip that down you see the professor and I clipped him to a timekeeper clock with a tiny clip. 

When you flip that you get to another short tab:

A fun circle with a game spinner and the label that folds over to the other side.

 I kept using the same colors and variations of the stamped images to add a different view.

The last tag is stenciled with embossing paste and stamped over with text. 

The reverse flip goes like this:

The back side of the last tag.  I inked up all the tiny text with a few pulled out of the sheet.  I stamped them onto a inky background. 

The english gentlemen (from an old Stampers Anonymous set made it on the tags in two different sizes)  I have him in a cling mount and wood mount set. ;)

Then I had the back of the timekeeper die which I didn't show again.  And then onto the umbrella man.

 Then the short tag with the circles. (I stamped these twice to make sure the circle was full on both sides of the tag.

And back to the butterflies:
To the back of the baby butterfly. 

I put them all together with an accordion fold:

I used a clip to get it to hold the fold to start with:

  1. Suzz, you always think outside the box! I love this flip book with all those men and cool butterflies. The Glitch stamping looks amazing in the different colors on the butterflies. Your stamping is amazing, and you've created another fantastic project, making all those sets work so perfectly together. (I'm kind of giggling because I had this little accordion sitting on my desk and thought I should make a book. I just need so many cards right now.) Hope you are all doing well.

  2. That´s all Wonderful !! Great !
    Have a nice day and stay safe.
    Big hugs,

  3. You never ever fail to amaze Suzz! What a brilliant design and the perfect way to show off your new stamps. I love how each layer works against the next xx
