Hello, welcome back to my blog. My share today is my take on a masculine card. I really struggle with these, but definitely have men in my life that I like to send cards to. I searched Pinterest for this stamp set and found something similar to this. I had the corrugated kraft paper that I hadn't used yet and think it's kind of manly so I knew I wanted to use a layer of it. I am trying to use up my 2014-2016 in color supplies so my card base is Blackberry Bliss with a layer of Mossy Meadow next. I stamped the Elk on Whisper White with Stazon ink and then added some trees from Lovely as a Tree in Mossy Meadow. This layer was mounted on more Blackberry Bliss. I got my greeting from Going Global, stamped in Mossy Meadow on a banner of Whisper White. I sponged the edges with Marina Mist and used the banner punch for the ends. For my sky I used my sponge daubers with Soft Sky, Marina Mist and So Saffron inks. I masked off my sun with a 1 3/8" circle punched from a post-it-note. For my little bow, I cut the surged edges off of the burlap ribbon and then pulled the ribbon apart. I like this look because it has more texture than linen thread and it's thicker. Well, that's all for today. I really appreciate you stopping by!!

Hello, welcome back. My share today is a card I made for our team facebook challenge. It was a color challenge using Basic Black, Basic Gray and Real Red. I had been wanting to try a neutral colored card with just a pop of color so it worked well with what I was imagining. The last 2 days we have gotten a ton of snow so I am dreaming of spring today. I started with a Whisper White card base and then layered black dsp from the Neutrals dsp stack. I bordered my stamped image with a very small Real Red layer and very small Basic Gray layer. For the stamped image, I used the Thick Whisper White for my stamped image using Archival Basic Black ink. I then used a blender pen and the Basic Gray ink to color the flowers. Just a pop of Real Red in the center finishes the flowers. For my sentiment I merged two of the stamps from the Greatest Greetings set, using the basic black marker to only color the words I wanted. The stamp-a-ma-jig made it a piece of cake to line up both words. That was punched with the word window punch and layered onto the washi label punch. A Real Red candy dot finishes off the card. Thanks so much for stopping by!! I appreciate it.
