Masculine the easy way..

Hello I hope the sun is shining where you are as well, is a beautiful day here today. We have been blessed with a lovely and warm autumn long may it continue.

I have a masculine card here for you today and I am pleased that it only took me about 15 minutes. Now that is unheard off normally I find it so hard to work masculine.

Loads of new catalogue products on here but I just carried away and I love using two or more sets to create a card that’s just perfect, after all that’s the perks of having a big stamp collection is it not? uhu I am desperately trying to justify my insane amount of spends in the new book.

Two sentiments sets were used to spell my celebratory message, For My Family  which is such a welcome addition to any stamp collection and Delightful Dozen containing beautiful messages covering a wide range of events.

In the background you can see a new embossing folder and the Well Worn designer paper which is just stunning and so perfect for masculine projects.

The main panel was coloured with the aid of Stampin’Up! s  marvellous markers. I used quite a few colours and I huffed over the entire image before stamping onto Very vanilla card stock.
