Hello Crafty Friends,

It is Friday!!  Yeah!  It has been a long week.

Today I am sharing another masculine card I created for my card classes this month.

This card was fun.  I started with a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.  I then die cut a piece of Good Life prints with Journey Ovals to make the neckline.
I cut a small square from the same pattern paper to make the pocket.  I added a piece of Chambray Shirt Cardstock cut in a small square to be used as a handkerchief.
I then die cut the bow from the Create a Mini Bow die set out of Chambray Shirt Cardstock.    I added this to the card.
I chose not to put a sentiment, so that I could add it later.

All supplies are from Spellbinders/FSJ and can be purchased here.

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have a masculine card to share with you today.

I think of trucks when I think of masculine cards.  So, I had to make a card with a truck.

The card base is made with Butter Cream Cardstock and a piece of pattern paper I had in my stash.  I then die cut a circle from River Stone Cardstock and Butter Cream cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Inside Out with River Stone ink.
I stamped the truck from Hit the Road stamp set on Haystack Cardstock with Dark Roast ink.   I added the truck to the card with foam squares.
I finished the card with little black stones and tied a Natural Journey Twine bow.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except for the stones and the pattern paper, and can be purchased here

Hello Crafty Friends,

What a whirlwind month so far.  I am done with state testing and can't wait to get back to my crafty time.
Today I have a card I created for my card classes this month.

The theme this month is masculine and I couldn't keep this stamp set out of the mix.

The card base is made of Whip Cream Cardstock, with a layer of RSVP Prints and a layer of Playful Prints Pattern Paper.  I then die cut the oval with Journey Ovals and Whip Cream Cardstock.
I then stamped the lighthouse from The Bright Side stamp set with Black Licorice ink.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same set onto Rich Coral Cardstock, stamped with Black Licorice ink.
To finish the card, I tied a bow around the card with Journey Natural Twine.

Now onto the project I created for today's blog hop.

I used some My Mind's Eye pattern paper from the Jubilee collection and a cupcake liner die to make the tea cup itself.  The handle, I cut a strip from the pattern paper and curled it with my quilling tool and added to the side of the "cup"
The saucer, I just cut out a circle from the same pattern paper and curled up the edges of the circles to make the circle look like a saucer.
I added the doily underneath to make it more festive.  

Here is another picture from the top. 

I can just imagine putting a cupcake in the middle, or filling a cup with candy and placing it inside.  There a lot of different ideas.

I hope I have inspired you!

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you are having a great day for this first day of May.  This year is flying by.

Today, I would like to share with you a shaker card.  I love making shaker cards, but I think this one is my favorite.

I used the stamp set Peony Blooms for this card.  I stamped the small peony flower with Rustic Rose ink around the white cardstock that I then die cut with the Journey Ovals, with the Peaches and Cream Cardstock to make the window.
I then attached the Whip Cream Cardstock and Peaches and Cream Cardstock together.  Then, I started to make my shaker sandwich. 
1. Cardstock
2. Acetate
3. Foam tape
4. Cardstock
I used some sequins from the Sunrise Mix for the shaker part.
I then stamped the big peony flower image on Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink, die cut it with the matching die set and colored the image with the Color Burst Pencils.
To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Peony Blooms stamp set with River Stone ink on the Peaches and Cream Cardstock and added that to the card.
