mens cards are always a challenge as there doesn’t seem to be so many paper collections released for this genre, so when I have to make mens cards I often reach for my stamps, and I am always on the lookout for more to increase my stamp collection.The stamps I have used here are from Stampin Up – The Open Sea and Gorgeous Grunge as well as a sentiment stamp. I used a plain white card as the base, and stamped straight on to it using stampin up inks – Cherry cobbler, night of navy and daffodil delight ( this is where I used one of the gorgeous grunge stamps-little spots under the anchor – it reminded me of grains of sand). In the top right hand corner I glued a charm, some string and hessian , just for a bit of texture, and stamped the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner to finish. I have some new stamps to play with tonight, so may spend an hour or two in the craft room experimenting! Til tomorrow….
