The Male Room Using Inspired By Stamping

Today I created a card for The Male Room Challenge; trees and leaves. 

It is also Inspired By Stamping day for my blog.  So for this card, I started with an ATC size card with a multi media effect.  I used IBS Background Basics 3, Background Basic Lines and Happy Fall and did some layering stamping, and sponging.  These colors work so well for a masculine card and since that is part of The Male Room Challenge, I'm good with it.

Once I got this done, I realized I was suppose to use the May released images for a card, so I made a 2nd card.

I started with a base size of 3.5 x 5.5.  This is my go-to size for when I give a small bagged gift with my card - which is my plan.  For this card I used the lovely designer paper IBS carries, Spring Lilacs.  I also used the May released stamp set, Fancy Label 3 [and the dies].

Now, come on over to The Male Room and play along!  Tell em Vicki sent you-- ;)


Thanks for stopping by~

Oh, I love the look of both these cards a lot, Vicki!!
The strong, black horizontal lines on the first is something I would never have thought to do - I love the look of it - gives such a lovely masculine feel!! All the stamping and sponging is beautiful!!
Love the sentiment on the second card and your bg papers look great!! The lace is beautiful and I love the bright red and the sweet twine bow!!

Have a super day!!

I like the lines on your ATC card, I thought it was pleated! Must get my eyes tested.

Both cards are wonderful, but I especially love the Male Room card- those black lines are something I would never have thought of but they work so well.

Love the layered stamping, gives really good depth to your card. It's fab! I do like the very feminine thank you card too!
