Now for our design team inspiration...

I ended up making two cards for this challenge - I am always in need of masculine cards, so I took advantage of this challenge to stock up!

Here I used the new Waterfront stamp from Stampin' Up because many of the men in my life are nature lovers, so this was a perfect set to create an outdoory scene.

I kept the next card a little more simple, you can never go wrong with balloons in more masculine colors. I used a three different stamp sets for this one - including the stripes to create the background piece since I didn't have coordinating paper :)

A masculine card and I'm extra proud of how I took a potty man sticker and
adjusted him to be sitting on the scooter with a helmet on!

For my Dad's 75th Birthday I decorated these containers with scrapbook paper, cardstock, and Thickers.


I went with a baseball themed stamp set because my husband absolutely loves baseball.

I started with a simple kraft cardstock background and crackled, colored cardstock. I have had the Tim Holtz Soda Bottle Blueprint Rubber Stamp (got on clearance at Hobby Lobby) for about a year now, and this was the perfect time to start using it. I used a Memento Dew Drop in Nautical Blue for the ink, then colored the star with a silver colored pencil. The last few details were a Stampin Up stamp from a long time ago with some silver embossing powder, a few enamel shapes and a touch of Wink of Stella glitter pen in a few areas.

And now...congratulations to the winner of Challenge #148:
