Male Colour Combo

Hi All

I don't know about you but always seem to have a shortage of male cards to send so when I saw this colour combo over at Simply Stampin' it seemed perfect for a male card...

and here is what I came up with for my DT entry:

Quite a simple card but I was happy with the way it turned out. I struggled to get any Not Quite Navy in but I just about managed it with some DSP and the feature under the main image...

Stamps: French Foliage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Early Espresso, River Rock
Card: Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, River Rock
DSP: Well Worn
Punches: Scallop Lace Border, Word Window, Modern Label, Decorative Label

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by

To DIE for!

Hi Everyone

We have a great challenge for you this week over at Simply Stampin' Challenge, it is:

To DIE for!

Which means you need to use a die on your card, in case that wasn't obvious!

Here is what I came up with for my DT entry:

I am in love with the embosslits dies as I think the embossing mixed with die cut shapes is just fab! I've used the Flower Burst here as well as the Beautiful Wings too. I also used the Top Note die as part of the background.

Stamps: French Filigree, Confetti, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Four Frames
Card: Wisteria Wonder, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery
Punches: Decorative Label, Eyelet Border
Ribbon: Elegant Eggplant
Dies: Flower Burst, Beautiful Wings, Top Note

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by
