Sunny Challenge 84/13

July 21, 2013

This week our Sunny Challenge has been set by Gwen and all she wants us to do is make something with a male theme.

0276I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Smoky Slate card (this is a truly beautiful colour).  I cut a piece of This and That Designer Series paper and trimmed one end into a “V” shape.  I attached it to Smoky Slate card and cut it to match the “V” shape before attaching it to the card front.  I stamped the “globe” image from the By The Sea stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Pool Party ink, which I stamped off once to lighten the colour.  I stamped the ship over the top using Smoky Slate ink.  Then I used the “striped” image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and stamped over the whole piece using Crumb Cake ink.  I punched one long edge of Pool Party card using the Scallop Border Punch and attached the image panel to it before attaching the whole piece to the card front. 028 I stamped the greeting using Smoky Slate ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched it using the Large Oval Punch.  I attached the greeting to a Pool Party Scalloped Oval and then the card front.

I stamped the globe image onto the lower left hand corner of Very Vanilla card using Pool Party ink which I stamped off onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the anchor image over the top using Smoky Slate ink and then stamped the  striped image from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp using Crumb Cake ink.  I attached this piece to the inside of the card.

I love the way this turned out.  It is kind of calming and pretty but not too pretty to give to a guy. 017 Let me know what you think.

For more inspiration take a visit to Sunny Challenges and Creations and see what the design team has created for you.  Once you have made your card, or scrap page or 3d item, pop back and add it to Mr. Linky.  I can wait to see your take on this week’s challenge.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Love, love this card. Such a great set for a masculine card. I still have not gotten it, but should probably move on it.
