Masculine Cards….

13 Jan

Good Morning!

I have a very quick post for you this morning and I am busy getting ready for work.  I have prepared a nice little Masculine card class to teach at The Cutting Garden next month.  I always love to try to make Masculine cards because I always find them quite difficult and when I manage to make some that turn out well, I feel like I have really accomplished something.

Masculine 001Masculine 002I used the Technique Tuesday stamp set called All Aboard.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I just had to have it!

I hope you all have a great week and thanks for stopping by!


Masculine – My Favorite Things Lighthouses

15 Jun

Advance posting is fantastic….  I love setting my blog up to post automatically for me in advance.  I get lazy posting on the weekend so sometimes I will just take an evening and set some posts up so I don’t have to think about it.

Here is a little masculine card I made last week using the My Favorite Things Lighthouses stamp set…

Posts 5This one is a super simple easel card stamped in VersaFine Oynx black.  I thought it would be a good time to post this card as it is Father’s day weekend.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and thanks for stopping by!


Another Manly Card….

5 Jun

Good Morning!  I hope you are not getting sick of seeing all these masculine cards that I have been posting!  I’ve got another quick little one to share with you and then I am off to work!  I have a bunch of winter scene stamps sitting on my shelf and when I was trying to think up something new to make for a masculine card, I said “what the heck” surely this will work?…

Masculine 2The stamp is by Hero Arts – K5524.  This stamp makes some pretty awesome Christmas cards as well so I felt it was a really good buy.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!Signature

My Mind’s Eye… Up and Away

4 Jun

Good Evening!  I have finally drug myself away from my garden and back into my craft room to do a quick post.  Kim has some new My Mind’s Eye stamps that recently came in and I found a bit of time to ink them up….

MME 003MME 004This set is from the Find Your Wings and Fly collection called Up & Away.  It makes such cute masculine cards and I felt with Father’s day right around the corner it was the perfect time to pull them out to see what I could create.  Cute huh?  I love these stamps!  they are totally fun!

I hope you are all having a great evening and thanks for stopping by!!!

Ugh!  It’s Monday again!  Where did the weekend go?  I didn’t get much crafty time in this past weekend.  I spent the majority of my time in my garden.  I managed to get all my little vegetable plants in the ground and Tony made my bean towers and I planted my bean seeds.  It has been a very productive weekend for me!  The weather was absolutely amazing this past weekend and I spent all my time in the back yard.  Hopefully I will find some time this week in the evenings to get crafty.

I have a masculine card to share with you this morning.  It is just a simple little card…

Masculine 3I picked up this cute little stamp at the yard sale at The Cutting Garden.  I felt it would be great for father’s day cards or masculine birthday cards.  I am off to get ready for work!

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Masculine Cards…

27 May

Good Morning!

In preparation for father’s day I thought I would made up some masculine cards for my stash.  I often sell my cards to people at work and I have a box of cards for sale at The Cutting Garden (Thanks Kim!!!)…. the money I make from my cards helps fund my crafty obsession which, as I am sure you know, can be quite expensive! LOL!!  Anyway,  here are some of the Masculine cards I made on the weekend….

The Sail Away stamp I borrowed from Kim.  This is a retired stamp and if any of you have it and are no longer using it and want to sell it, I would be very interested.  Just send me an email please.

Revisiting some old friends…

2 Mar

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday to you all!

Wow am I glad last week is finally over!  It was a busy one for me at work… so much happening!  But now it’s the weekend and I get to relax and do what ever I want to finally!  I was so excited to start my weekend I actually woke up at 5:30 am and came downstairs to my craft room with my nice fresh cup of coffee to sit, relax and catch up on all the things I have missed on Pintrest.  Yes!  I am so addicted to Pintrest!! LOL!!

I have been thinking a lot this week about what I can come up with for Easter cards and it dawned on me last night that I could just revisit and revise some of my old favorites!  These two cards I am about to post, I made quite a while ago and I have kept them in my stash because I really wanted to make them again.  The are definitely two of my favorite cards…

Post 1Post 2I think these could easily be made into lovely easter cards don’t you think?  I think I will get to work on making some variations of these this weekend.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!
