ICS BLOG HOP-ANIMAL OUTING


For the month of May our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop is creating Masculine Cards in Black & White!!!! Masculine cards are sometimes the toughest.  There are always lots of flowers and pretty things in our catalogs but what do ya do for a guy?? No ribbons or stuff!!!

Well here's what I came up with!



I love this card!  After I completed it-before the retiring list came out-I realized that just about everything on it is retiring! :( I love this stamp set!  
Animal Outing is the first set I got from the current Annual Catalog! With it's adorable coordinating Animal Friends Dies.  So I'm a bit attached! Animals I think are good for guys? Yes?

And the Crackle background stamp?? How could they do this to me? lol I use this background so much! It will remain forever in my stash!!!

The sentiments are from Label Me Bold. My go-to for dudes! I think here they make the perfect embellishment for this card. No baubles or bling! While I have many dude friends that prefer baubles & bling, generically I think guys not so much. I simply cut out the sentiments & added with Stampin' Dimensionals. I think it adds the perfect amount of detail & texture.  

Oh, I must add! While I'm terribly distraught to lose these stamp sets to the Next Chance List, I'm super excited about the offerings in the new 
Annual Catalog!!! I can't wait!!!!! I'm sure those will ease my pain! lol


So it's a quick easy card! I believe that works well for the guys! Now hop over to Terri's blog & see what her black/white guys' card looks like! Just click on her name or the icon below.  I know you won't be sorry! Then keep going! Feel free to leave a comment!!!

Oh, and if you're interested in these retiring goodies better get them before they're gone!!! Click HERE!!! Be sure to use Hostess Code PNHBRGCM.

Happy Stampin'!
