Masculine & 3 Sets

Anytime I whip up a masculine card...the crowd should go wild!!!

Not saying it will go to a male, but the option is there. ;)

stamps: My Favorite Things Sketchy Flowers/Anything but Basic Birthday Wishes/Bokeh Building  other: My Favorite Things Painted Prints Citrus 6X6 Paper Pack

 My Favorite Things 

(one card, three different stamp sets)

 Love the sentiment set I just got recently...I'll want to use just about every single one of the witty originals. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!


Snail Mail One Layer

Here's another one-layer~

stamps: Pinkfresh Studio Semi Circle Patterns, The Craft's Meow Welcome to the Office paperclip, Studio G sentiment

 I saw this inspiration photo and the team's projects from Inspired by (helpful to see what they came up with)~and inked up a new set I treated myself to recently.

I say treated myself, because whenever I buy pattern stamps (like this one from Pinkfresh)...I have no one in mind BUT ME.


I wanna stamp patterns all day!

 Time Out's theme challenge had me rooting through my loose wooden stamps my girlies gave me.

I knew there would be one I could use!

My hobby is creating snail mail in my spare time 

(as I'm sure is yours if you're here-unless you're mom or sis).


I also had a paperclip image from a retired company~I have a friend that loves stationary and such and I think this would be perfect for an any day note I want to send.

 As for a one layer...happy accident folks.

That's the magic of one layer.

You don't even know you're heading in that direction until it starts to form...much like that magical moment when liquid turns to gravy. :)

Thanks for stopping by to see me today!

Stripes Masculine Card

I stamped stripes today with my Misti.

Before the Misti, my stripes would hang off of my largest acrylic block.

I LOVE that they can stretch out now, and I can stamp 3 times for a perfect, saturated line.

stamps: Papertrey Ink Background Basics Super Stripes/Boy Basics: Game On sentiment/Grunge Me

 These colors are gorgeous together!

I felt they were perfect for a masculine card.

One of those rare guy cards to throw in my stash~yay!!

Thanks for stopping in~
