Hello and Welcome to another SUO Challenge (using Stampin' Up! Only Products for your project) - this time we are challenging you with a Masculine Theme!!
You can see the complete list of great projects from the design team when you head to our challenge blog.
Creating male cards can be super challenging, but I've found that using neutral tones with one other colour helps!! Here I've used my Traveler stamp set (now retiring) for the world globe (love that image!!) along with a greeting from the hostess stamp set Time of Year, and the Banners for You stamp set. Those coordinating Bunch of Banners framelits are so helpful for making a dynamic greeting!
I've used the great sketch from the Just Add Ink challenge to help my creative juices flow!!
And you can see the awesome projects from that design team if you click on the graphic.
For the large central circle, I've used the largest Swirly Scribbles thinlit, and my horizontal elements are created using some Tip Top Taupe ribbon and Love and Affection Washi Tape.
My background is a combination of Hardwood stamp set with Woodgrain embossing folder.
The colours are: Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake and Mint Macaron.
I hope you've been inspired to jump into our Masculine Challenge too - it's always good to get a few more cards ready for the men in our lives!!
Until next time,
Happy Stamping! Julia
