Chevron Birthday Wishes

Ok, I know I’ve had a little bit of a fixation with chevrons this week.    I’ll try to tone it down this next week.  It just seems like they’re everywhere now, and I’m finding it hard to not put them on everything.

Class GrungeThis card uses a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  It was fun to just kind of throw it together.  I used the new Chevron Border punch to add the three chevrons.  I think this card is a good non-gender specific card.

Enjoy your Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Bitty Butterflies

I’m not sure what it is about doilies and butterflies, but I think they just go together.  I love the fun patterns in the I Am Me dsp pack.  I punched out some butterflies from different patterns in this pack.

Best Friends

I’m still playing with some of the new colors.  I had some Coastal Cabana on my desk from yesterday, so I decided to try some other combinations that go with that color.  The Color Coach suggested Calypso Coral and Smoky Slate, and since I love both of those colors, I thought the combination sounded great.


So after figuring out my color scheme, I had to figure out what stamps to use and a sketch as well.  I popped on over to the Retro Sketches site and decided to use their sketch this week:

Masculine Label — PP146

The super talented Ann Schach has a great challenge for us this week at the Paper Players.

I don’t know about you, but masculine cards never come easily for me.    I always struggle with making them.  I’m not sure I would exactly call this card masculine, but I wouldn’t call it feminine either.   I think it could easily pass for a guy’s card.  There is no ribbon, rhinestones, nor buttons.  The guys in my house think that those items disqualify a card from the masculine category automatically.

Masculine Label

I decided to go with a grungy look — well, this is about as grungy as I get.  I distressed the edges of the dsp and crumpled it up (which still seems wrong to me, but I just took a deep breath and did it).

Go take a look at what the rest of the team did with the challenge at the Paper Players, and then join us.
