Guy inspiration

Hi everyone,


I have some very exciting news -  I have been asked to join the Come and Get It Challenge (CAGI)Design Team for the next 4 months beginning May.


So I want to share with you my card I have created for the current challenge at CAGI which is  for the Guys. 


Don’t we all get stuck for with those guy cards, so this challenge is helping me build up my stash!


I have used the colours Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pool Party and Whisper White for my colour inspirations.


The stamp set used is the Nature’s Nest and the sentiment is from the Hostess stamp set Perfect Words.


The base of the card is Soft Suede and I cut a piece of Pool Party card stock and stamped the peacock feather from the stamp set on the card stock with Pool Party ink to create a little background.


I embossed a strip of More Mustard cardstock with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder in the Big Shot.  I then punched one side out with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.


The turtle has been stamped on the piece of Whisper White cardstock in Soft Suede and I added some More Mustard around the edge of the card with a dauber.


I inked the image again in More Mustard and added some highlights on the image with the Soft Suede marker before I stamped it on Whisper White scrap cardstock.


The second image on scrap was cut out and layered on the Soft Suede image with dimensionals.  I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment.


I linked the layer of the Spice Cake DSP and main image with an antique brad thru the corners. These brads are another of my favourites and I often forget about them, maybe that is because I am running low and I am using them sparingly :)


Here is my card:







Stamp set: Nature’s Nest, Perfect Words

Card: Soft Suede, More Mustard, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink: More Mustard, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Antique Brads, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Daubers, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Spice Cake DSP (retired),

Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive





My little turtle looks like he is till trying to catch that Hare !
