Barbosol Isn’t Just for Men

My grandson and I had a grand time using the shaving creme technique to make the background for this card.  The technique and design came straight from Claudia Perry who provides a detailed tutorial on this artistry.    If a four year old can do it, so can you!

It Takes a Lot of Steps to Make a Big Hit

I saw the title of this post on a Polaroid marketing page.  I believe this is a Polaroid camera.  At least it looks like the one my Uncle Chris had back in the day.  Either way, the slogan is very fitting for this card as well;  Lots of steps of grunging, sponging & layering to make a Big Hit.

When your in need of a masculine card, this card is a perfect fit.  Brian King who designed this card always says that guy cards don't always have to be brown.  I totally agree with him!  Any guy who gets this card will smile and his heart will not be breaking.

Moon Lake

If they would have named this stamp set Moon River, we could all start singing.  Instead we get a great masculine card from a great stamp set.

Sea Street

This adorable card was inspired by Amy Koenders, a great designer and inspiration to many in the stamping world.  I was so excited to use a die to cut out the Octopus from product by an artisan by Dies by Dave.  Watch for more cards using dies from Dave.
