Today, I have some cards to show you, that are suitable for the guys in our lives. Both include the fun bear image from the Tagtastic hostess stamp set. Some of you know that I have a bit of a bear obsession - both of the cuddly teddy & wild varieties - so when I saw this image, I HAD to get it.
Cards for guys are not generally my favourites to make & I used to find them a bit tricky. Over the years though, I've found that simple layouts, deeper colours, some DSP & a neutral image or sentiment go a long way. Anyway, here we go with the cards.
The colour combo I used was not quite navy card & Patterns DSP, baja breeze, crumb cake, tangerine tango (for a little pop of colour on the base & bear hat) & naturals ivory. I like the effect of the cropped Top Note shape with the decorative label punch shape for the bear & mat & you know I love a matching punch.
This version has similar, but more neutral colours - baja breeze, early espresso, crumb cake, ivory & a little marina mist. I've used the decorative label to build a mat. The ribbon was folded in half & tied with some linen thread. I also coloured the bear with my crumb cake marker.
Hope these give you some ideas for this stamp. I'll be back with a card for a younger male. Until then, thanks for visiting.
Inky wishes, Di
PS: Tagtastic has lots of great flexible images & all work with our co-ordinating punches. If you haven't noticed it yet, have a look in the hostess exclusive section of our Idea Book.
