Boys And Their Toys

We all know how difficult it is to make a card for the blokes in our lives! Luckily SU's new mini catalogue contains not one but two great masculine a la carte stamps, making it not only easier but also inexpensive to make fabulous cards for our menfolk.

This month's Sunday class are making masculine birthday cards and I've used the new Motorcycle and Sail Away stamps, both of which - as luck would have it - are just perfect for my DH!

My first card is cased from Mary Brown with little changes to her fabulous card - hey, when it ain't broke, don't try to fix it! Pumpkin pie, marina mist, not quite navy and sahara sand are the colours.

Next up I cased Dawn Olchefske who used multiple stamping to show movement on her card. I thought this technique was awesome and it's actually very easy to do. More mustard, cajun craze and not quite navy were my accent colours for this one.

And last but not least one to appeal to the younger man. Lots of Bots is a great stand by for boys and DH's like mine who are in to things mechanical! This one is again cased (I know, bad case of mojonogo!!!), this time from Jen Sannes and I added in the spotlighted piece.

Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Oh Kez, these are awesome! Masculine cards are so difficult for me. Especially love the colors of the sailboat! Hugs,
