Masculine Card Share

Good morning crafters and happy Tuesday.  I hope that everyone survived Monday.  I just wanted to pop on here and post a card that I created last week.  I have become obsessed with using up or purging my scraps these days.  I created a series of cards using the scraps from a layout from last month’s Shape Challenge on The Cutting Garden’s blog.  I just loved the paper line and couldn’t bring myself to get rid of the scraps so I did make several cards one day and called the scraps done! I’m not sure why I am that way because I am drowning in paper ( and I would die a happy Gal surrounded by my beloved paper collection…lol).

Here is a peek at one of the cards from this series:

bikeThe stamp is from a set that I got in March from Sale-a-brations from Stampin Up.  I used the darkest blue ink that I own called Cobalt Blue from Ranger.  I triple stamped it so it would fad off the page.  Masculine cards are hard.  I love to add ‘fluff’ to them but this card is simple in my opinion.  I love this paper line from My Minds Eye.  I still have several sheets of the paper left but just couldn’t waste the scraps. I hand cut some pennants from the paper and cut the sentiment into one as well.  I added some glue to the tips and bent them up to give the illusion that the sentiment pennant is blowing in the wind.

I love that ink color I used.  It is my go to blue ink these days.  Kim carries a wide range of Ranger Archival inks in the store.

Thanks for peeking in and have a great day!
