Red Rubber Inspirational #126 - Getting Krafty

Mary Anne leads the Red Rubber Inspirational #126 this week, Getting Krafty.  My sample card for this challenge uses Kraft cardstock as the base.  I stamped the background and focal images with stamps from Every Road by Red Rubber Designs using Palette Burnt Sienna Ink.  I added some brown twill ribbon, burlap ribbon and buttons as accents.  I thought this would be a good birthday card for a man.

Hope you will pull out your Kraft cardstock and create something fun for the challenge.  You can enter here.

Secret Code by Pickled Potpourri

Secret Code and Secret Code Words by Pickled Potpourri makes a really fun card.  This digital set has lots of images that can be combined for a cute children's card, or for a man.  I made a birthday card with mine, using an inside birthday sentiment.  The images are all colored with Copic Markers, and then I used Crystal Effects on the magnifying glass to give it reality.  The man's image was cut with a Spellbinders die.

I hope you enjoy this comical card.  You can find the digital stamps here and here.

Nature's Greetings Deer by Pickled Potpourri

This week is Father's Day when we celebrate our dads.  My "man card" today is using a digital image, Nature's Greeting Deer, from Pickled Potpourri.  It makes a card for a man for birthday or Father's Day.  I used Spellbinders Labels 14 for the die cut and a birthday sentiment from Contemporary Greetings by Red Rubber Designs.  The image is colored with Copic markers (E13, E15, E17, E27).  The background paper is from my stash of scraps, so I'm not sure about it.  I added buttons for accent.
Come to Pickled Potpourri and find a digital image.  There are lots from which to choose.
