HSS 119

Hi stampers!  It's Tuesday and time for another challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  I really like this one because it's something I need to do more often....cards/projects for the guys!!!

I'm not very good about making masculine stuff...I tend to throw girly colors and frilly embellishments on everything I make:-)  My poor hubby is really good about telling me all my fru-fru stuff looks good and doesn't complain if he ends up on the receiving end of a girly card now and then!  But, I'm making it a goal to make more manly stuff this year!

I made this birthday card a while back for hubby's dad and thought it would work great for this challenge!  I like it because it's masculine and simple....like men...:-)  Totally kidding;-P  And I realized I had to come up with a masculine card because the only one I had around "in stock" is the same one I gave him last year I think, lol!  So I gotta build up my stash!!!!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Bring on the cake, just my type
Paper:  Crumb cake, very vanilla, cajun craze, not quite navy
Ink:  Soft suede, not quite navy
Accessories:  Decorative label punch, circle punch, vintage trinkets

I really NEED to use more of this paper before it retires....think it will happen? :-)  I love the weathered look this card has and the muted and manly colors!  The sentiment is from just my type...that's all I can say about that since it's retired and didn't make the new catalog and I'm distraught over it!

So now you should head over to the HSS challenge site and see all the other manly projects and totally play along with us!  Make something for the men in your life!!!!

Happy (manly) stamping!


  1. This is such a cool birthday card and totally perfect for guys. The layered focal punches and image look great with the DSP. Smiles, Elizabeth

  2. I am sure he will love it. I love the vintage look of it!

  3. Masculine and simple...like men! Bwahahahaaa! My hubby is sitting next to me without a clue about my smug giggling! I love your card!!! It's very warm and handsome. Any man would be proud to display this in his man cave.

  4. Man-tastic, Mindy! Love the clean design and that DSPis so perfect for masculine cards. Have a super day! :)

  5. Mindy,
