Masculine Stamp Camp Photos

Hello Gals!
Thanks to everyone that attended my masculine card class. I hope everyone enjoyed the variety of styles presented in the class, and my previous post giving you some additional color combos suitable for masculine cards. And, for those that couldnm't attend, here are the cards we created.

The first card was one of the favorites, and was one of the simplest to create. We used the Engraved Greetings stamp set stamped in Stazon ink. (Stazon will give you a true black image). The faux metal was created from my husbands metal tape run through the Sizzix texture plate from the background #1 assortment. Cardstock is Sahara Sand, Basic Black & Whisper White. we finished the card off with Basic Black Satin ribbon. (card cased from Stampin Connection)

The next birthday card was designed for a younger guy! We used the Party Hearty stamp set (30% off during National Scrapbooking Month). Cardstock is Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, & Pacific Point. very simple layout & card to create.
Cased from Stampin' Connection.

The Open Sea stamp set is from the current Summer Mini Catalog! LOVE IT!!! I received this card as a swap, and everyone enjoyed learning how to make an easel card. Much easier than it looks!

The next card was created with the Autumn Days & Sincere Salutations stamp sets. Colors are Baja Breeze & Soft Suede. This card was cased from Lyssa Zwolanck. I love her work!

And, oh yes, the Oragami shirt. I had to practice doing this fold to present it to everyone, but I think we all did o.k. :) You can find videos on how to make the shirt on youtube.

Thanks for dropping by...hope you enjoyed the cards.
