ICS BLOG HOP-ITS A GUY THING!

 

Happy June! As we are heading into the warmer days, we are also heading towards Father's Day! So this month this amazing group of independent Stampin' Up! demonstrators are bringing you "guy" ideas!  This is always a tough one for me! lol But let's see how we do!

Here's my card:

So for the guys I always say "less is more".   As a cardmaker, I love to add all the fun frilly stuffs to my creations! Well for the guys, that's a no-no! lol My theory is you can do it with either color or content (ie., stamp set, pictures, etc.)-just keep it simple!

This card has so little stamping on it! In fact, I had to dig through my stash to find sets with just a "happy" & "day" that were not to fancy! lol Found them on Something Fancy (there's irony there! lol) and Cheerful Daisies!

The DSP is the real star of the show here. It's the brand new                        Country Woods 12x12 DSP! I do love the "natural" look, and this DSP is all that!

The letters were formed with the Alphabet A La Mode Dies. Just popped up the panel & it give the "shadow" letters!

Embellishments are the '23-'25 In-Color Jute Trim Pack & the                   Metallic Enamel Effects Basics-silver! No fancy bling! Altho I do use the     Enamel Effects on many many cards!!!!

So I hope this gave you a good masculine idea! I know I'll be hopping through this hop for inspiration!  I always need ideas, and right now there's nothing in my stash to pull from in a birthday "emergency"! lol

Now hop over to Hawaii to Cheryl's blog to see what she has to share! I know you'll love it! Simply click on her name here or the icon below! Then keep going for some great "guy-spiration"!
