Hey You! Cards 4 Men series (video)

Back with the next installment in my Cards 4 Men series and today I’m stamping and die cutting.  I like to use simple graphic designs on masculine cards with bright colours, for some reason they don’t seem to like things too fancy….   so no flowers or glitter in sight, I promise.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Hey there how’s it going?  I’m having a wonderful weekend, spending some QT with my husband.  We had a lovely lunch at a cafe by the sea and were lucky enough to see some whales heading north, they were so close to shore, maybe it’s because there were no waves in sight…

Anyhow, I’ve been busy working in the background and will have heaps more for you real soon but til then my share for today is a publication where the call was ‘ombre’, I took the cheats way out and let the paper do all the work, oh and of course these fabulous Avery Elle stamps helped!

Tomorrow we are off to a caravan and camping expo, our next camp trip is in October and I’m sure we’ll be needing some bits and pieces to keep us comfy.  Have you ever noticed how easy it is to spend money?  lol!

Introducing Cards4Men and it’s Super (video)!

Welcome to my mini series Cards4Men!  I’m so excited to finally have some ‘me’ time to create this as it was on my to do list this year and guess what, it’s July already, go figure.   So I went to my card stash the other day and I really had no masculine cards to speak of so, opportunity seized and voila a card mini series was born.

When it comes to Cards4Men here are a few basic tips that work for me…

  • keep it simple
  • make it bold & bright
  • use graphic design
  • humour (they love this)
  • and keep it simple
  • use dedicated masculine stamp sets
  • use plain fonts
  • avoid bling, lace & ribbon (usually)
  • and did I say keep it simple

I thought I would start with a fun card using some Super stamps from Paper Smooches, these images can be used for men young and old, and they are fun to boot!

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Friends at Muse!

Today at Muse I was thinking that it time for some flowers and with an untouched amazing set of stamps from WPlus9 (I know sacrilege right…  I need to join Darnell’s NBUS challenge lol) called Fresh Cut Florals it was easy.  So it’s one layered with some pencil shading for depth otherwise a fairly simple design.

 I can’t wait to see how this inspires you!
