I was intrigued by LeAnne’s challenge over at The Paper Players this week:
This sounded hard to me — not because it’s CAS, but because it’s masculine. The only thing harder would be lots of layers and masculine. Whenever I need to make a masculine card, I default to CAS.
I went with a guy-friendly color palette — orange, blue, and gray. And I forced myself to not use any ribbon nor buttons. But I still added some fun embellishments with the candy dots and cute clips.

I’ve had so little time to stamp lately, and I’ve missed it terribly. So I carved out 30 minutes yesterday morning, and decided to create just for fun. I tell you, this hobby is like therapy for me. I felt so much better after doing it.
Enjoy your Saturday! I have piles of laundry to get through, a nine-year old birthday party to attend, and shopping to do. Busy day! Thanks for stopping by!

I thought I’d try to achieve a grunge-style look with this card. Notice all of the straight lines? Ha — I just can’t quite give them up! So here’s a modified grunge-look for one who likes a clean style. 🙂 I really don’t think the words “grunge” and “clean” go together — oh, well!
After I stamped the grid image, I sprayed some Melon Mambo ink mixed with rubbing alcohol using one of the Stampin’ Spritzers. All in all, this was a pretty quick and easy card.
