Masculine Cards

Happy Saturday!

I have 2 masculine cards to share with you today....masculine....I know, right?!?!

This 1st one will be entered into the Challenges at; Scrapy Land, Anything Goes and Simon Says Wednesday, Layer It Up!

I used the Gina K Designs stamps Masculine Tags, stamped and fussy cut out.
  Night Of Navy ink.

Tutti Designs dies; Stitched Nesting Banners and Stitched Nesting Stars.
Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.

This card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, Tag It
and Papertrey Ink, Shadowed Sentiments

I created my wood grain background by scoring every 1/2 inch and then swiping some Oxide inks back and forth til I achieved the look I was going for.
Inks in; Faded Jeans, Iced Spruce, Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo.

PTI stamps and dies; Shakers And Sprinkles, Love Notes

  1. Fantastic masculine card. Layers can be a challenge, but you've done great here. I'm so glad to have found you through the SSS challenge.

  2. I love them both. It is so much easier for me to do flowers than masculine. lol Love the layers and all of the stars on the first one. Love the background and the great colors on the second.

  3. These are two fabulous masculine cards my dear. You did an amazing job on the wood grain background. In my opinion, you can no longer say masculine cards are hard for you :)

  4. Whoa, these are some great masculine cards. The first one has tons of layers that all look and feel masculine. From the colors to the stars. I love the second one too. The colors that you used to get the wood background are so striking and I love the repeat of the blue on the banner. Now you got some great masculine cards in your stash.

  5. Great masculine cards, Donna! The wood grain background you created is fantastic! :o)

  6. Both fabulous cards Donna. Love the stamp and monochromatic theme in your first creation, and all the artsy loveliness in the 2nd! Beautiful!

  7. Wow~ Fabulous masculine inspiration here today Donna. Love the wood background you did!

  8. Love, love, love both of these. I think the colors you have chosen are perfect for the look, and the stamps you have used are perfect too. The navy and gray on the first one, and Island Indigo and brown on the second are both color combos I would not have chosen, but they work so well together. Well done, my dear, simply fabulous!

  9. Both cards are so well designed. I especially love the way you did the wood background on the last one. That is so cool!

  10. Great guy cards.The chairs are great way to finish your sunny scene.

  11. Your card is fabulous! Love the beautiful tag on it. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)

  12. They are both terrific but I will have to say your wood background is totally outstanding, so love it!! So love the relaxing summer feel to the second one too!

  13. Two fabulous masculine cards! The wood background looks so real, and the beach chairs say it all! Bring on the Summer :-) xx
