Masculine TAWC For This Week

Joanne is the hostess this week for the Three Amigas. Our chal- lenge from her is to make a mas- culine card with browns and blues. I combined the challenge with the sketch challenge for today at SCS to kill two birds with one stone...except that I was stamping at 1 am and I forgot one of the layers of the sketch! Ouch! And so, out of desperation due to my computer woes, I'm posting it anyway! The colors here aren't very true, even after I adjusted them, due to taking the pic at 1:30 am and having to use a flash.
I stamped the mugs on the background Cocoa cardstock, sent it through the Big Shot with my SU! texturz plate, then sponged some color lightly across the texture to highlight the raised diamond pattern. After stampin the mug and words on the Whisper White, I colored the mug with my Mustard SU marker, sponged the edges of the cardstock with Brocade Blue, paper pierced the edges, then connected the dots with the fine side of my Cocoa SU marker to give it the faux sewing look. The brads are from the retired Vintage Brads set. I kind of miss that copper look in the new Vintage Brads. I think it works well here.
Supplies: Cheers To You stamp set. Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue, Whisper White cardstocks. Bella Rose DP. Paper piercer & template, SU markers, Vintage Brads, SU texturz plate, Big Shot, Sponge.
Once again, thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station. I wish you many hours of enjoyable stamping.
p.s. here's a teaser. Next week, easy scrapbooking for the scrapbooking challenged stampers...

  1. This is an awesome masculine card!! The textured background is a great idea for a "boy" card, I'll have to remember that! Love the beer mug, I don't know how I missed that set!! Great job with the Challenges...I wouldn't have even known you were missing a layer!! LOL!!
