cards, Masculine


As it is approaching the end of the Annual Catalogue AND the Occasions Catalogue, I really wanted to use up more of the great papers from the ‘Adventure Bound’ Designer Series Paper Stack before they are finished with. There are some great designs for those male cards we all struggle with.  So this past week I have been on a mission to make some cards with this stack.  I thought I would show you some of the cards.

First up, I CASED the card on the left from Leanne Greff (flowerbug) HERE but just changed it a little.  Then decided to turn it and change it some more. Colours used are Basic Black, So Saffron and Cajun Craze. Isn’t the brick print cool???


For these next 2 cards I used the Traveler set and added some Burlap Ribbon and Island Indigo Cotton Ribbon.  Don’t be afraid to use ribbon on the boys cards!  Colours used here are Basic Gray, Island Indigo and Cajun Craze. The greeting is from ‘Itty Bitty Banners’.


On these last 2 I will show you I decided to pull out some retiring sets.  I changed the stamps but kept the same layout.  The left is using Starburst Sayings and the right card is Blue Ribbon and I have used the White Jute ribbon (which only just arrived in my order a few hours earlier!!!).  I have used Island Indigo, Cajun Craze and Base Gray again and even added some sparkle with some Silver Glimmer Paper.


I was happy with these little sets of cards. I hope you like them too??? 🙂

Have you got any ‘Adventure Bound’ DSP paper stacks yet?? There are some great designs and only $11.95 for 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. They are just a little larger than a card front size and have some fantastic print images and patterns. You have to get this pack for your male cards. (Only 2 weeks left). You can see them (and order) from my online store HERE or you can contact me directly.

You can see some other cards I made with this stack some time ago by heading to this blog post HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Come and visit me again.  Have a happy day wherever you may be.


cards, Masculine, Stampin' Up!


I just have to share these cards I made yesterday.  I am not great at making male cards.  Aren’t they hard to make???  The new Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stacks in the Occasions Catalogue makes creating them so much easier.  Actually there are a lot of great “male” sets in this catalogue.



The prints in the stack are beautiful.  You really don’t need too much more with them on your cards.  I have used the new ‘Hello You’ Thinlets and the ‘Crazy About You’ stamp set with them and kept the embellishments very simple.  I was thinking of putting Candy Dots on them but didn’t get around to it.  I don’t think it needs them really.  I like the clean look.

Here they are individually.





The Adventure Bound Stacks are great value at $11.95.  (p 40 of the Occasions Catalogue).  You get 48 sheets – 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  Sized right for the front of your cards.
