Mojo 498 Masculine Birthday



This card was made for 2 challenges.  The first one is the Splitcoast Stampers Technique Lovers Challenge #639.  The challenge was to make a card using the Smack Down Technique.  You can find out more about it here.  The 2nd challenge is this weeks Mojo Monday 498 Sketch Challenge.  

Coming up with masculine design cards is sometimes tricky for me.  The smack down technique provided the opportunity to use the Stampers Best Gears Background stamp to create this masculine birthday card.  To keep with the theme, I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder with gears.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Gears Background - Stampers Best, Party Punch - SU
Paper:  WW, Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Ink:  Tip Top Taupe, Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, Color Box Wicked Black
Accessories:  Embossing Folder, Ticket Punch, Brads

Congratulatte to the Grad!


This quick card was made for a friend who just graduated with his Masters in Education.  He is also a coffee addict like myself so I took the opportunity to use one of my favorite coffee stamps.  The sleeve of the coffee cup was paper-pieced using old SU DP.  I used a scrap of coordinating DP on the left edge of the card and some sparkle with gold sequins.

Recipe:
Stamps: Perfect Blend, Espressoly for You - SU
Paper:  WW, DP
Ink:  Bermuda Bay
Accessories:  Sequins

Hello Baby Boy


This is a card I made for a friend who just had a baby boy last month.  I found this card on Pinterest and CASEd it.  I used the same stamp set but I changed the colors and papers.  I cut the onsie and bib with my Brother Scan N Cut II so I wouldn't have a white border.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Something for Baby, Teeny Tiny Wishes - SU
Paper:  WW, Lucky Limeade, DP
Ink:  Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Brother Scan N Cut, Button, Twine, Tag Topper Punch, Ribbon
