More Masculine Cards

I made these cars a while back but never got them blogged. This was my brother's birthday card. I cased the design from p. 58 of the May/June issued of Papercrafts. That was a pretty good issue, I have to say. All products are SU. Set is Bring on the Cake.

The next card was a birthday card for a friend of my son's. Sets are PTI's Grunge Me and Boy Basics: Game On. CS is Soft Sky and Pumpkin Pie, DP is Scenic Route. Ribbon is PTI, embellie is SU's Build-a-Brad.

This last card was for my son's birthday (he is 13! GAAA! How did this happen?!?!) I used SU's Extreme Elements and PTI"S Game On. Colors are Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze, and Night of Navy. This card is a total case of one in the SU 2010-2011 IBC. My sewing on this one sucked, but I used it anyway. Matt said he liked it.

I really like making masculine cards. I get tired of girly floral cards sometimes. What's your favorite kind of card to make? Thanks for stopping by today!

PTI Swaps

Hello! I know it's been a long time since I posted. I just haven't been in the mood to blog.

I finally finished the last two spots in my regular PTI swap over on SCS. You can see the other two spots HERE and HERE. This card is for the masculine card portion of the swap. The only things PTI here are the stamp sets: Grunge Me and Boy Basics: Game On. All CS, inks, and accessories are SU, except for the Cuttlebug embossing folder. Colors are Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou, Kiwi Kiss, and Pumpkin Pie. Sketch is from p. 66 of the May/June issue of Papercrafts.

The next card is for the regular card category. All products here are PTI except for the border punch and the ink used to stamp the sentiment (SU), and the DMC floss threaded through the buttons. Stamp sets are For the Graduate and Love Lives here. Ink used is Sweet Blush Hybrid. DP is Bitty Boxes. CS is Sweet Blush and Lemon Tart.

Well, thanks for stopping by today! I had a great time making these cards. Hope you get some creative time today.
