Man Cards!

I finally got my man stamps today.  I'll work on building this part of my collection, but for now these guys will have to do.  I'm not really crazy about nautical stuff, but this set is not toooooo shippy (though there is a ship stamp).  I have an awesome idea for a colour combo that I could use for this set, but already had Not Quite Navy and Cajun Craze cut and just sitting there, waiting to be used, so I answered their cries. This isn't the layout that I wanted, but I made a total rookie mistake and glued my background on UPSIDE DOWN!  Der.....  I still like how it turned out though.

I absolutely adore Tool Shed (the big background stamp).  I think it will look pretty cool clear embossed too.  Maybe I'll try that out once I'm finished this post....  This is a pretty simple card, but I think that's what's great about it.  The stamp really stands alone, so why fix a good thing?

Stamps:  Uncharted Territory, Tool Shed
Ink:  Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy
Paper:  Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand
Extras:  Hemp Twine, Modern Label Punch, Word Window punch


  1. I also have Uncharted Territory. I really like how you used it. The guys will definitely not think this is too flowery, lol. Good colour combo too!

  2. Tool Shed would look neat embossed. White craft ink on black might pop as well. Very nice job, Crystal.
