Hello there...

How are you? In the best of spirits I hope due to this wonderful sunshine, it seems that i always talk about the weather when I blog, but I am sooo looking forward to Summer LOL> and it looks like it might be on the way. woohoo.
Today s project is one I designed for Stamp With Us online classes and this time is time for Men. I know we all break in to a cold sweat when we are thinking about them but they have to be done and after all with a bit of imagination they can easily be achieved .
I took a pack of To The Nines speciality paper and went from there by adding a bit of Really Rust to the Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip .

 For the tie card I dyed some of our narrow twill and simply tied a knot while hiding the end inside the knot if that makes any sense at all lol. 

The card on the right shows how you can use a variety of birthday related sentiment stamps add them all in a block of alternating colours for a really fun effect.

And the third one maybe the most boring out of them all but perfect for any guy out there, you just can't go wrong with stars for men.

The gable box is the perfect size for a aftershave bottle or you could add whatever else you might like, a tie, fave sweets anything really.
I really like how this project turned out and I will offer it as a class to go on my website, should you be interested in offering it to your customers(if you are a demo) or simply purchase it for your own need. 
Right well I need to dash till next time Hugs xxx

These are lovely. Male cards always do seem so hard but really they shouldn't be at all! I love the idea of creating the tie from ribbon knots, might have to use that one some time, thanks for the tip!
