Manly Monday

This week I combined my manly Monday with a challenge at Two Peas. (This link will take you to the calendar of what has been done so far.) Two Peas is having a 30 Days of Stamping & Cardmaking. They are having giveaways and all kinds of challenges for everyone to be a part of. I really liked this challenge and may do it on my own. What is it? You use the same stamp on three different cards in three different ways. So I made the one below for my Hubby's 40th, which coming up way to quickly. The other two I made you can find HERE.

There's a couple of techniques in this card. I paper pieced the car, I cut out the car and saved a little around the edges and then inked it red. I was hoping to make it pop more but it could just be the 3 in the morning picture. I then added Stickles to the window but now that I think about it glossy accents probably would have been a more manly way to go. The banner is Glimmer mist using a Cricut negative as a mask and then cut out with decorative scissors. It's a square card which is a box but out of my box.

Supplies: Alphabet stamps-Lawn Fawn (new to me Jessie alphabet and lovin' it), Car/Bug stamp by Unity Stamp Co, Patterned paper by (black) Recollections, (stripes) Basic Grey and (rust with circles) Creative Memories. Border punch by Martha Stewart, brads unknown, Glimmer mist by Tattered angels, ink by Ranger, Versa Mark and Memento, Embossing powder by Stampendous, stickers by Sticko, Stickles by Ranger, cardbase unknown, and scallop scissors by Fiskars.
