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.

Wish Big

This is a card by Susan Field who designed this card for a organized swap at the recent annual Stampin' UP! convention held in Salt Lake City, UT.  She was gracious enough to allow me to take the measurements so that I could copy it for my July stamp camp.  I love the colors in the Bohemian Designer Paper Series and the cutie patootie Octopus will surely make someones day.

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.
