Long Time No Post!


Well, I'm back(!) I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted! Things have been really busy and I haven't really had the time to post. I've still been making cards but lost my crafting mojo for a while but now it's coming back I thought I'd share some cards with you again!

I always struggle with cards for men (especially if they don't like sport!) so this stamp is going to come in very handy!

I bought this Trimcraft paper pack at the weekend called 'Masculine'. I only really bought it because it was cheap but once I got them home and really looked at them, the designs are really nice. Pleasantly surprised :-)

I followed a sketch over on Inspirational Card Sketches and thought the bold shapes worked really well for a male card.

Image: Can’t remember maker of the stamp (I’ll look it up later!) stamped with Black Stazon. Coloured with Derwent Watercolour Pencils and white Sakura SoufflĂ© pen for the detail.
Papers: Trimcraft – Masculine paper pack and silver Mirri board
Tools: Just the basics; craft knife, silicon glue etc
Greeting: Studio G clear stamps

I'm going to try and be a better blogger from now won and post more regularly! :-)

Great card Sarah - I always find cards for the boys so hard to make! Love how your paper with the little ties matches your image.

Your card is fab! So hard to make a man's card but you nailed it perfectly. Your papers are great.
