365 cards–Days 205, 205 and 206


Things are getting back “to normal” and that means besides setting the house to order and catching up with email (really, I will be emailing you if you’ve emailed me!)  and all the fun stuff that calls once company departs – now I’m all caught up the 365 card challenges.  Woo Hoo!  It’s beautiful here today – supposed to be 32 degrees c both today and tomorrow so hoping to catch some sun time later in the day. 

365 Cards


Day 204 – Outer Space Masculine Style


Do “Outer Space” in a masculine style!

Here’s what I came up with:


Boy did I re-work this one several times or what?  I just could not seem to get it right and I believe I tore it down and built it a total of 4 times.  Do you ever do this? 

Paper:  Stella and Rose Hattie and Herringbone

I cut the shapes and letters out using my Silhouette SD



I had originally glittered the large star but wound up going wild with the glass beads.  The camera cannot capture the luminescent beauty of these stars!  They light right up.


Day 205 – Summer Vacation Masculine Style

My take:



Whereas the last card took forever to complete, this one almost fell together of itself.  I used a graphic from Graphics Fairy and printed out my own sentiment.  I don’t know which paper this was from.  I used a Fiskars stamp to create the diamond pattern both on the background paper and on the edges of the graphic. 


Day 206 – Love, Masculine Style

How I achieved the look:



Clean and bold with no sappy hearts or flowers or soft or gaudy colors – this card gets right to the point.  Its like the conversation you have with your guy – you like to start with details and wind up to the point while he likes to start with the point and … well, that’s about it!  I can get him hopping by draaagggging out a story *wink*

The paper has no identifying info, sorry.

Stamp is Studio G

Thats all!  Thanks so much for visiting and if you leave a comment, well, you’ve made my day ♥
