I’m a little late to the car show, but I noticed that this stamp set is still available in a limited quantity and it makes a fabulous masculine card.
Don’t adjust your computer this card is done in all tones of gray. I used the mix-in paper packet from the fall (it’s also still available and such great colors). I stamped the ink blot stamp set in Pewter second generation and then stamped the truck in Charcoal over the top.
If you struggle with masculine cards, I’d suggest working with a monochromatic color scheme and avoid the floral B&T!!
Thanks for stopping by won’t you take a minute to leave me your favorite masculine color combo in the comment section.
It’s a special week at Double Trouble (9-30 thru 10-6) is our Something, Anything, Everything Challenge with the fun twist of making PINK your prominent color to help us celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can also get extra points in our prize draw by linking to one of our previous challenge partners. You can find all the details and link up your creations by visiting our challengeblog.
My card is a fancy fold card with my favorite combination of Ballerina & Black. The big bold flower flips open from a fancy fold card to display the first sentiment and then an additional sentiment is inside the card with room to write a message and sign your name.
I hope you’ll come play along with our short week, but extremely fun challenge. Don’t forget to link up and join the fun…everyone needs a little Double Trouble in their life!
I did it, I did it…I got all the February challenges completed for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog!
This weeks challenge is C.A.S.E. which means Copy and Steal Everything! There are so many talented artists out there to be inspired by, but Heart 2 Heart wanted us to “copy and put our spin on a project from the current Seasonal Expressions Idea Book”.
I don’t think there is a greater form of flattery than when someone wants to copy your work…unfortunately I fell victim to someone that was unscrupulous a few months ago that actually stole a piece of my artwork and put their own stamp on it. It’s important to also give credit where credit is due when inspired by a card.
My inspiration came from page 84 of the Seasonal Expressions 1 A Birthday in Watercolor. The talented artists at Close to My Heart are always an inspiration!
My spin was to use a B&T paper from the Seasonal Mix-Ins paper packet and choose a color combination from the Love of Color – Glacier, Sweet Leaf & Thistle. I also didn’t have the puffy sticker embellishments (what’s wrong with me) used on the original card so I used I Heart Us sequins mixed in with the spatters.
I hope you will look at the Close to My Heart Catalogs more than just a place to shop, but also as a source of inspiration. Find a card that you love and share it with the Heart to Heart Challenge Blog.
