Something for men





Dear All,
I am ashamed to say that this is my first blog for 2017 been a busy start to the year having returned to University to complete my Masters oops.


I thought I would join this months Jems Blog Hop especially as it is for men and seeing as in my household there are my husband and 3 boys.....even the parrot and the dog are boys!!!!


Nathan's craft and tearoom have been asked to commission 50 cards for the Dads on the local neonatal unit so have been looking closely at inspiration for dad themes...not going to post them on here as yet as do not want to spoil it but have some potential ideas.

These cards I have created have utilised the wonderful DSP we have from Stampin up  for this card I have used  is from my pack of paper that I received free during SAB and have created an origami folded shirt fairly simple but effective I hope you agree. Thinking of adding a tie but can open the shirt to add your own message.







My second card involves Stampin up stamp sets.
Stampin up involves stampin gorgeous stamps and inks but iIdon't feel very confident or adventurous although I am rather proud of this double stamp effect I have used to create a shed......I have used home sweet home and hardwood stamps stamping directly on to card first using crumb cake and topped with early espresso stamped from an inked up hardwood stamp. The background card is pool party.



  I even managed to add a door.... this will be perfected for my dads fathers day card.



I hope you enjoy my post but please click on the links below I have Samantha's either away both very talented. Enjoy this blog hop.
