Photo Inspiration at Addicted to Stamp and More!




Time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! We can't wait to see your cards/projects inspired by the festive image you see above. ATSM DT has provided you with many ways to interpret the image -visit the challenge blog for challenge details and fab DT cards! We are happy to have Digi Darla sponsoring our challenge.

My mum wanted me to make a card for my uncle and I had zero ideas... I don't have many masculine stamps -or any clue of what kind of card my uncle might like- so I chose the most manly stamp I had and let the colors of our inspiration photo guide me. I think this is my second masculine card ever -I was so embarrassed of the first that I think I haven't even blogged about it! My husband has guided me that one should not embellish cards intended for guys too much... And definitely not add anything shiny... So luckily the metal pearls I used in the corners are quite matte. :)  I clear embossed the sentiments though (Congratulations in Finnish) and they shine -so let's hope it's only my hubby that has this super minimalist taste when it comes to hand made cards for male. :)

  2. The metal pearls are perfect for a guy. The colours look great for a guy and I like the strong black sentiment stamped on top of the moustache x

  10. No doubts at all - this is definitely a man's card! Those silver gems look more like nuts, or screws or nail-heads...all things manly in my book. I think you're more than ready to make your 3rd masculine card!
