Our June demonstrator get together for Stamping to Share featured a "Make It Manly" swap. Here are the swaps - so outstanding! Hope you enjoy them as much as I am!! Faith's card features the Open Sea stamp set and the new stamp set called Ray of Sunshine.
Here is the inside of Faith's card . . . and it is most delightful!
Mary's card also features the Open Sea Stamp set. She made a lovely tri-fold card showcasing the new designer series paper called Maritime. The small sentiment on the front of the card is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the awesome sentiment on the inside panel is from Sassy Salutations. Love the colors - what a great summer birthday card!
Laura also used the Open Sea stamp set, but combined it with Hardwood and Gorgeous Grunge to make this gorgeous guy card! Love the port hole and anchor feature on this card. Oh, and one thing that you can't see in the photo is that Laura used a window sheet to make the port hole even more realistic!
Cindy created this guy card with Walk in the Wild. She frequently sees moose (sometimes right in the back yard) when she visits her grandchildren so I know this is one of her favorite stamp sets for sure! The dots and lines adding interest to this card is again, Gorgeous Grunge. The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday.
Dawn created this card based on the swap she received from Cindy last month!! Love how these monthly swaps inspire all of us to create!! The fish in the background is from the set called By the Tide. The sentiment is from Starburst Sayings. the real fun begins when open the card . . .
And find all this fun going on!! A couple of my club members just swooned when they saw it so we are going to create something similar for our August Sunshine Club!
Mary made this card and I just love the way she did the background. I also love the banners accented with a Candy Dot and I think the Blackberry Bliss/Smokey Slate color combo is divine!! She used the new stamp set called Traveler to create this manly card.
Linda knows that most men enjoy movement whether it's casting a line, throwing a football or taking drive with a full load of gas on a Sunday afternoon! Her card celebrates that passion with a spinner!! Roll it back and forth and back and forth . . . that's where the fun is! She used Open Sea and Gorgeous Grunge.
Liz got creative with her card!! That lobster is actually swimming!! Do you see the bubbles in the background? The tide in this case is actually hair gel!! wow, wow, wow!! So proud of my amazing and creative group of crafter stamping to share!! She used the stamp set By the Tide. The sentiment is from Memorable Moments.
Dorene created a card in tribute to one of her very favorite and now retired stamp sets called Rev Up the Fun. My group will certainly miss this set as it was so great for quick, manly cards like one.
And above is my card for the Manly Swap using Bootiful Occasions. The original post with a video tutorial is HERE.
