Masculine cards

In the middle of other projects I realised I need another Father's day card... I thought a CAS card would be quickest.

3 attempts at placing the stamps I had chosen, 3 attempts trying out colours, and finally working out the best cut to get a better proportion took ages!

Grungy Circles from  Uniko's Round in Circles Background builder set
Dog from Flonzcraft's True Gentleman set
Sentiment from Hobby Art's The Old Crock stamp set

Kaleidacolor in Vineyard
Memento Black
Distress Walnut

For my base I used a silk card which takes dyes beautifully, and, since I am yet to lay my hands on one of those stamping tools (I'm thinking of getting Tim Holtz/Tonic one but it is on wait list everywhere) it's just as well.

Quite pleased I managed it in the end and that I am able to show something this week, as my posts have been rather unpredictable of late...

Thank you for your continued support,
I am entering the SSS Monday Challenge, SSS Wednesday Challenge, That's Crafty, Unikostudio, Stamplorations CAS challenges.


  1. super fathers day card - love that stamp!!! Hugs rachel x

  2. Brilliant! love the design. I bought the misty. I think I may have over paid so worth shopping around. I had to pre-order it as well. I don't use it all of the time but worth having to hand especially for repeat stamping on heavy card.
    Have a great week.

  11. Elle est rigolote et mignonne comme tout... Mais tu m'as fait rire, avec tes tentatives de C&S qui finalement prennent plus de temps ! :D
    tout compte fait, je crois que c'est pour ça que cette année, j'ai décidé que je n'avais vraiment pas le temps d'en faire une pour mon homme... Lol. Bises
