Simply Masculine Card

A quick post today, to share a card I made for this week’s challenges at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday and Create with Connie and Mary.

The challenges:


My card:


I really needed to add more masculine cards to my stash, so this week’s masculine twist at Try Stampin’ was perfect, as are the colours at Create with Connie and Mary.

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Smoky Slate, Neutrals DSP Stack, Summer Starfruit

Ink: Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point, Smoky Slate

Stamp Sets: Gorgeous Grunge, Sweet Essentails, Simply Stars

Tools & Embellishments: Big Shot, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

A Playful Wish!

Boy, do we have a playful, colour combo for you this week at Colour Me…!. Let’s see what you can come up with using Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.


I thought this colour combo would make a great masculine card, but just couldn’t get the creative juices flowing.

So, what does a gal do when she needs inspiration? Log into Pinterest of course!! There I found this great masculine card, by the talented Amy O’Neill. I loved it, so I have cased it and put my own spin on it. Thanks Amy for the great inspiration!

Our challenge will end on March 31st, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.

Birthday Stars

It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for a new two-week challenge at Seize the Birthday. We were absolutely blown away, by not only the amazing entries for our last challenge, but the number of them as well – 202!!!! That is a new record, thanks to all of you who continue to play along with us.

This time we are including a “Toppings” option of Stitching: Faux or Real.

Our challenge:



I decided to omit the “Toppings” option this time because I wanted to create a card for my son, who is having a birthday soon.

I’m still in love with the Simply Stars and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets and thought why not combine the two. This is the end result!

Remember, our challenge is open for two weeks, until March 25th, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, to inspire you with, so be sure to stop by Seize the Birthday and check them out – NancyGlendaColleenSusieSharynJodeneJoAnnMarzenaSheri, and Janet. We can’t wait to see what you create!!!
