Stamp Off Masculine Lift Me Up

Welcome to the last Stamp Off Challenge of July.
Time really flies when you have friends like Buffy and 
Susan to mark time with.

 Today, our challenge is to make a Guy Card.
We have lots of products to use, so this will be a good one!

I really like the Lift Me Up Stamp set with coordinating
Up and Away Thinlits for masculine cards.  I think that
a lot of guys enjoy hot air balloon images.  This bundle
has them in abundance!

They fit really well on this fun fold card,
that enables you to place balloons on 3 different panels.
I used retired DSP to decorate the 3 panels.

I appreciate you stopping by and urge you to click on
over to see what Buffy and Susan have done with their
masculine projects.

Lovely Inside and Out Bokeh

The Lovely Inside and Out set on page 157, is such a
fun product to coordinate with the Lovely Words Thinlits
on page 214.  The words and images are very pleasant,
when used together.

It's difficult to see, but I used the Bokeh technique on this card.
The splash image was stamped in Soft Sky and Blushing Bride,
with Whisper White Craft ink stamped over top.  You can
see some of the color transitions if you look for them.  I added
Bermuda Bay ribbon and wording, to make this card pop.

Pocketful of Sunshine Pocket

Pocketful of Sunshine (p 64), with the coordinating
Pocket Framelits (p 214) is a fun, vibrant bundle.
It can be used on a card front, or formed into a pocket
for gift giving.  It is a great masculine option, too.

In this example, I used the Color Theory DSP pack (p 187)
with Dapper Denim card stock.  They make a great
combination.  I added the flower from the Flourishing Thinlits
set on page 216.
