Men's Cards.

I was going through my "stash" of cards and realised I didn't have any on hand for men. Most card makers would say that making cards for men is often their biggest struggle.  At Stampin' Up there is a great range of images that make creating men's cards a breeze. Below are three I came up with today.

So what do you think??  Not too "girly" are they? I love the colours in the "Well Worn" DS paper range like I've used in the last card above. Very masculine.
Speaking of DS papers, if you're looking to add to your collection check back in May for a great special offer.

Hi everyone!  Being school holidays I have had some extra time for crafting. Below are a couple of cards using the gorgeous "Spice Cake" range from the now retired Summer mini. If you like this colour/pattern range as much as I do,  I still have a few share packs available. See below for previous posts about them.

Now for the current range available in our beautiful Autumn/Winter mini, the Twitterpated range. I have been having so much fun with these. Below are four cards using the same range of papers, just done in 4 different colour cards. I have kept the Riding Hood Red the main feature on each with pleated ribbon and the layer of cardstock, then I just incorporated 4 of the other coordinating colours in the range. The flower image on the bottom right hand corner of each card is actually a rub on.

Again if you are interested in a share pack of these papers and matching embellishments/ cardstock just check out my other posts below and send me an email. Share packs are a great way to make a bunch of cards quickly and easily as it all matches, at a fraction of the cost.

Boy card & Easter!!!!

I promised a boy card using the new "Twitterpated" DS papers and here it is. As much as I love the flowery designs in this range, it certainly is a versatile collection as there is nothing "flowery" about this card. It is a card for my son who has just been accepted into High School of the Performing Arts in Wollongong. And yes he does "Rock" on his guitar!

After I finished this card I thought I'd make another using the same basic layout, still more papers from the "Twitterpated" range, but this time an Easter card.

If you haven't yet seen my earlier post about this gorgeous new product and the launch of our new mini catalogue, make sure you scroll down!!!!!
