Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!




I decided to go for a "manly" card design using Tami's set as it's something I struggle with and I know lots of others do as well.  I have come to realize lot of men really like vintage and I think that's because it looks a bit rugged and worn, I think. LOL  I mean, I'm certainly NOT an expert on what ANY man likes. LOL  Just ask the two males in my house!!  Ha!  I started my card with Pure Luxury Kraft card stock.  I added on a layer of Chocolate Brown and then some of that fabulous designer paper from the "Wishing You Joy" patterned paper pack.  I added another strip of the Kraft paper and did a bit of distressing along the edges and then more patterned paper from the "Casual Friday" pack. I stamped the "note card" image and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Antique Linen, along the edges.  I used another of Tami's sets, "Happy Hearts" and stamped it on some Bubble Gum Pink card stock.  I cut it out using a heart punch and added more Chocolate Brown and a lacey heart punch.  A bit of twin and some Pop Dots to adhere my image to the front finish off my card. 





This is the card I "sneak peaked" for the Release Party Invitation.  My sweet friend, Pat St. Martin shared a fabulous tutorial with me on how to create this layout which I just adore and know I'll definitely use again.  HERE is a link to her tutorial if you're interested in creating this unique card design.  I used Pure Luxury Red Hot, Grass Green and Lemon Drop on my card.  I stamped the strawberries on White and colored with my Copic markers.  I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 to cut out the image.  I sponged some Memento Ladybug Red around the edges.  My DP on the front is also cut using a larger Labels 8 die and is from the Patterned Paper Pack, "Petals & Wings", my sentiment on the inside is from the new One free with Three, "One in a Million" and the DP is from the "Red Carpet" paper pack. 

Here's a look if you flip UP the strawberries front...

What awesome art work you have done with these two cards. Love the notecard use and of course, strawberries have always been a favorite of mine and your card with that set is gorgeous.

I love the plaid background papers and all the colors on the card. ;)

Encouraging Words said...

I agree, men seem to like more rugged and "manly" themed cards. Nice job on this one. I also liked what you did with the strawberry stamped card, and am definitely checking out your friends tutorial. Thank you for the inspiration!

Tina these cards are amazing. I love the sweetness of the Vintage Note card as well as the texturing. The Sweet Strawberry card is so cute with the colors and texture WOW

Vicki Dutcher said...

Fabulous samples! Your photos are very crisp and clean -- love that!

Joyce Evans Erb said...

love your masculine card with a pop of pink! Then the results of holding back exploded onto your very feminine strawberry card with gorgeous flowers and lacy edges...just stunning

janet said...

Great!!

Robin said...

Just wonderful cards!

Caryn S said...

The masculine card was great, not your standard masculine card. I love how the plaid paper in the background almost shimmers with the vibrant colors. And the yellow cardstock on the second card with that really bright green is just a great lively combination.

KonaRose said...

Look at all the cheerful colors, textures and different edges! Your cards are so happy and make me smile! Thanks, Tina!

Sylvia said...

Beautiful creations. The coloring of your strawberries is awesome and the rest of the card is so "summery" (don't know if that's a word-but it makes me smile). I like the composition of your "manly" card. Thanks for the inspiration.

Sharon Jones said...

Tina, these cards are PERFECTION!! I just gotta have these stamps, for sure! Thanks so very much for the inspiration!

Sharon said...
