A Couple of Masculine cards

Well I think I may be out of my funk... we shall see.

Nothing like a good purge of stuff, a clean sketch and some fun papers to help one get out of a funk.  I really like this sketch from Stamping 411.


I have not had a lot of mojo the last couple of days, not sure why but probably because I had a lot of 'to dos' on my list and today I knocked a major off and it felt good.  Anyhow, I dug out my Echo Park This and That Charming paper and went to work (I actually created 3 cards but the third is for a DT project later this month), and used this sketch to create 2 cards.  On the first card I have used a couple of Unity KOTMs and the MFT tab die.


For this second card I have used the Chatterbox set from The Alley Way along with some American Crafts chipboard letters and some Twinery twine.

Loving these masculine cards, I especially love the glasses and your stitching around the edges. Great sketch too - maybe a good jumping off point for today's session in the scrap room!

Excellent work, Laurel. Love the vintage feel and the cleverness of the cards.

I'm sorry your mojo isn't as strong as it normally is...can't tell though by these great creations!
