Masculine cards can be fabulous, too!!

  Happy Friday!  Thanks so much for visiting us today.  I don't know about you, but I always find myself needing masculine cards yet they are some of the hardest to create (at least for me).  Do you feel that way, too?  Maybe it's because we can't add all the fun embellishments like rhinestones, pearls, glitter and ribbon to these kinds of cards.  To overcome that we are featuring masculine cards this week and hope you find some inspiration for your cards...


  First up is this great card from Rachel Yurkanin.  Her birthday card design features lots of great texture and the Guy Greetings stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  Please visit her blog here to get all the details about her project.


  And this is my design for this week... it is a card for my wonderful husband.  I also used the Guy Greetings set from the Occasions catalog - my new favorite - but our cards look totally different!  Please hop over to my blog here to get more information about my card.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous weekend!!

A Little Valentine's Love

Happy (day before) Valentine's Day to you! We thought you would like to see some last minute Valentine's cards and ideas just in case you still need to make something special for your special someone for tomorrow's big day. If you already have all you need to do done, accolades to you. You will still find these projects inspiring.



Here is Debbie's card - she used the new Rose Coral chalk ink and paired it with chocolate chip and the Groovy Love stamp set to create her own "designer" paper.  Please visit her blog post here to get all of the details about her project.

Karla is up next with her cute Valentine candy project, she has the details and more pictures on her blog.



This card was made by Rachel. She used unconventional colors to make her Valentine's card. A soft pink, grey and black card is perfect for something a little different. Visit her blog for more details.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love,
Debbie, Karla & Rachel

Black, White & a Pop of Color

Thanks for coming back to visit us and see what we are up to. We love that you come every week to see what new creations we are making. This week we are focusing on black and white cards with a pop of color.  Black and white cards can be so fun to make but when you add a pop of color it changes everything.

Don't forget the Occasions Catalog is only out a few weeks and we are currently in the prime Sale-a-bration season. Contact your demonstrator to get the catalogs and place to place your order to get your new toys ASAP. You've not going to want to wait long.


First up, we have Debbie's card. She used a great new background stamp from the Occasions catalog and her pop of color is Bermuda bay. Head over to her blog for all the details on this great card.


Next, we have Rachel's card. She also used some Occasion catalog goodies on her card. The pop of color here is Calypso Coral. Check out her blog for more details on her "happy" card.



And lastly we have Karla's card.  Her card features the Back-to-Black DSP and a fun Sale-a-Bration product.  Her pop of color is daffodil delight.  Be sure to visit her blog for all the details on her project.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope we have inspired you to go make some black and white cards with a pop of color.
