Red Rubber Inspirational #115 - Masculine Birthday



Today it is Masculine Birthday cards at the Red Rubber Inspirational challenge blog.  Lynda leads us in this week's challenge.  My first card uses the Eyes to See and Masterpiece rubber stamp sets.  I've stamped some of the images as background on Kraft cardstock. The focal image is stamped on cream cardstock and colored with Copic makers.  Twill ribbon and brads are added for accent.

Supplies:
Eyes to See rubber stamp set by Red Rubber Desigins
Masterpiece rubber stamp set by Red Rubber Designs
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Palette Burnt Umber ink pad
Kraft cardstock
Brown cardstock
Cream cardstock
Copic markers:  E21, E23, E27, YG95, YG97, G46,, BG000, BG11, Y38
Brown Twill ribbon
brown brads 

My second card uses Hey Life and Always Be Fabulous stamp sets.  I used a Cuttlebug Embossing folder to impress the white cardstock before cutting a circle for the golf ball.  

Supplies:
Hey Life rubber stamp set by Red Rubber Desgins
Always Be Fabulous ("happy birthday" sentiment) by Red Rubber Designs
Hip Hop cardstock
Blue cardstock
