Clean & Simple 'Man' Cards

Good morning all - hope the rain is not adding too much to the Monday Blues!! I'm off out later so I'm hoping it will dry up a little.

Meanwhile I promised you some male cards - take a look at these

These were so quick and easy to make but having the right tools for the job is essential. My new blog Crafting from the Ground Up is still in it's early stages but will start you off on the right track if you are new to crafting  -  you can find it HERE

So the above cards were matted and layered with Crumb Cake and Whisper White (Stampin' Up) and the background is a very useful little stamp from the Happy Watercolour set. It's like a paintbrush stroke and gives a graded look to your colour (Crumb Cake). I then stamped my images in a black Stazon ink - job done.
Stamps used as usual Stampin' Up - can you tell I'm a fan?! - and are from the Walk in the Wild set.

Ok I'm off now - dad is in hospital again having some tests for something unrelated to his cancer which is a little worrying but I guess he is in the right place. It's an all day job though visiting Newcross which is in Wolverhampton - very long journey there and back so me and mum are quite exhausted at the end of the day - too tired even for crafting at the moment but do pop back tomorrow as I have some more male cards to show you xx


  1. These are fabulous Jacqueline, so stylish and I love that stamp set. Your new blog is a great concept for newbies, good luck with it.

  2. Oh my goodness, these are stunning Jacqueline! I think I must have been a man in another life or something because I adore this style of card! Sorry to hear your dad is back in hospital. Such a worrying time for you - you are in my thoughts. Vicky x

  3. Brilliant cards Jacqueline! Sorry to hear your dad is in hospital again. I know just how exhausting hospital visiting us as I'm doing it most days at the moment too.

  4. These are gorgeous, Jacqueline! So sorry to hear about your Dad. Your family remain in my prayers xxx
