Sweet Stamps New Challenge - Masculine

Hello and a Happy Tuesday

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stamps, thanks to everyone who joined us for our Medallion
challenge last week. I am so sorry I was not able to leave comments, but now that blogger is working for me I will be by to comment on all the fabulous cards everyone shared with us.

This week's challenge is for the men in our lives
As we are wanting you to share you Masculine cards with us this week.

Remember, join us each week for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree in the Sweet Stamp Store and if you submit an entry using a Sweet Stamp - stamp then you will get a double chance in the drawing.

With last week being a super busy one for me, I went with a very clean and simple card for
this week's challenge, and I have to say I am very pleased with how it turned out for a Masculine card which always seems to be a tough challenge for me.

I inked up Shorebirds 3011 stamp with brown ink then added Distress Embossing Ink   on top before stamping the image onto Kraft card stock, then embossed the image with Clear embossing powder , layering the stamped Kraft onto matted brown and white card stock. for the sentiment I inked Happy Birthday 905C
with Distress Embossing Ink directly onto the brown card stock and embossed with Clear embossing powder . All items highlighted are linked to the store for quick access to the product available in the store. To Finish off my card I tied some Baker's twine.

Now, do swing over to Sweet Stamps challenge blog as the team is sharing some Fabulous
Masculine cards to inspire you.

Have a great day,

Challenges this card will be entered into
