~ Clear and Simple Stamps Group Challenge ~ Masculine (and feminine) Krafts


Colors inspired by this: rich earthy tones mingled with a peaceful aqua-blue.



Daddy2 Daddy3
for some special dad (like my own) ----- created with this kraft cardstock, cute buttons, and this stamp set just for the boys in your life.

I won't lie; I still struggle when it comes to making cards for men. But this stamp set makes it just a little bit more simple to ease yourself into that little niche... hope it will help you too.

And one more robin-egg card, in girl-style. The flowers and leaves are vintage millinery, mixed with some buttons and burlap.
