Simon Says … Make it Masculine


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the  Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Make It Masculine 

Father’s Day is on 21st June, so this challenge is dedicated to creating something for the men in our lives. You don’t have to make a Father’s Day creation, anything masculine will do !

We are showcasing CAS-UAL FRIDAYS and WAFFLE FLOWER Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store



Eek – not the dreaded masculine card, lol!  I know a lot of us card makers aren’t all that keen on making masculine cards as they tend to be less fussy, less “pretty” and don’t often give us as much freedom to get really creative as cards for fefmales do (but that could just be me, lol) .  I recently picked up this woodgrain paper pad and love it for giving a good amount of detail and texture but still be able to keep it CAS and masculine-looking.  I stamped the bow from the Waffle Flower Bowtiful stamp set in fog ink on three different wood papers and also covered the cream base card with a darker one for contract.  The sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink and then I heat embossed it with a cream powder.  The bows were die cut and mounted on foam adhesive to finish – simples!!


So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Hello sailor!!

Popping in with a quick post – it’s WAY past my bedtime!! – to share I card I created for the current CASe This Sketch Challenge.  I’ve gone all manly with this one and used the fabby Dockside and Dockside Backgrounds sets from Wplus9.  I bought these a few months ago and this is the first time I’ve had a chance to play with them – and I LOVE em!
