Masculine Monday

It's time for Masculine Monday over at SSINKspiration!!  Masculine cards are always a little hard to create SO...we have some ideas for you today!

Here is my card...


I used one of my favorite stamp sets on this card.  The Dotty Angles stamp set is so much fun to use.  The triangle border on the top of this card comes from that.  I stamped it in Smokey Slate.

The sentiment on this card comes from the April 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I just love all of the combinations that you can create with this stamp set!

Be sure to check out the SSINKspiration main blog today to see a few more ideas for this masculine cards you have to make!

Kids Birthday Card

Hey Stampers!  Today over at SSINKspiration we are showing you a few fun kid-themed birthday cards!  The Designers have some really cute cards for you!  So don't forget to check them out on the main blog!

Here is my card...


I used the Hooray It's Your Day Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers Photopolymer Stamp Set!

I thought that these little balloons would be the perfect addition to a kid-themed card AND kids always love to see their new age on the front of a card!  You have to do that while you are young!

Retired + New = FABULOUS

Today over at SSINKspiration we are showing you what you can do with Retired Stamp Sets and New Stamp Sets together.


The heart on this card comes from the I {Heart} Hearts Stamp Set.  The sentiment and the little swirls come from the NEW Hostess Stamp Set, Because You Care, in the Occasions Catalog.  

I don't think I will ever be able to be able to let this wood grain heart go!  It's so cute and it is the perfect addition to a masculine card!  I made this one for my hubby!

Storage Solutions: Raskog

Today over at SSINKspiration we are talking about storage solutions!

Here is one of my favorite storage solutions...the Raskog Utility Cart from IKEA....


I use this cart for things that I love to have close to me while I'm stamping alone: Clear Blocks, Punches, Stampin' Mist, Scissors, Markers, Baby Wipes and much more.  BUT, having the cart makes it easier to roll away from my personal space when I have classes and events where my customers can use my things!

Yes, I do share!

If you are interested in learning more about the Raskog, you can see it here.


And please stop by the SSINKspiration main blog to see what storage solutions the other Design Team Members have for you!
