FOR THE GUYS – When I first started stamping I did a ton of masculine cards, living in a houseful of guys, but I slowly got away from it and now don’t do nearly enough of them. Fathers’ day is still a month away, but we have all sorts of occasions to give those guys in our lives cards — so make a card for one of those guys in your life, but there is one more stipulationlets make sure our cards include either string, rope, cording or knots of some sort — which is what I used to include on guy cards all the time when I did them years ago. So pull out those *rugged ribbons* – LOL — and let’s create for those guys in our lives!!!

Check out the greatsamples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these designers:

What wonderful samples!!! Thank you girls!!! Much appreciated!!!

Heres myguy creationfor today:


I think it fits the bill: masculine, string, knots, Stamped Simply! Not a whole lot to say! As before, I put down a narrow strip of red sticky tape across the card front and then wrapped my string on top of it — holds the string perfectly!!! I like this rugged look on a guy card. I was happy to be able to make my own THANKS in a size I wanted by using my JustRite Times New Roman Uppercase Font. Simple card — enough said!

Stamps: Times New Roman Font Uppercase used on the Harmony Rectangle Stamper by JustRite.

Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Granola DP by Basic Grey.

Ink: VersaFine Vintage Sepia. ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.

Accessories: May Arts String from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, Red Sticky Tape, Glue Glider.
