Bring on the boys!

Now I couldn't do a blog post about the girls & leave out those poor boys, could I?!
Just a quick post tonight to share with you a few boys/male cards I've made recently.

I made this for my cousin's 40th birthday earlier this year & I never got round to sharing it on here ...

I sponged the background with inks & used some Clarity stamps to stamp the fishes. Some banner dies, various scraps of card, Swiss Dots embossing folder & a sentiment to finish it off. I'm entering this card in the challenge at CASology where the cue card is 'FISH'.

This card was made for my nephew's 16th birthday ...

Now that's a cool guy innit?! This dude was stamped & then coloured with promarkers. Again, I used various scraps of card & a Craftwork Cards sentiment. I'm entering this card in the Addicted to CAS challenge where they are asking for creations for 'TEENAGERS'.

My last card for tonight  was made for a friend's son ...

I used Clearly Besotted's stamps & dies from the sets 'You Said It' & 'Make a Wish', inks & DSP from Stampin' Up & some twine. I'm going to enter this card in the challenge at Clearly Besotted where the theme for Stephanie's first ever challenge is 'ANYTHING GOES'.

Thanks for popping by & take care x


  1. What a great fish card...perfectly masculine! I really like the trio of banners and the popped up 40!
    Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week! :)

  2. Oh my - your teen card is so perfect with the baggy clothes! Made me smile - Thanks for joining in at ATCAS!

  3. Popping up numbers on those banners is the perfect way to personalize these cards - which is one of the best parts of cardmaking, I think - the ability to make a card specifically for that person! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  4. A super Teen image and fab. colours Tamara. Thank you for joining us at ATCAS - Sylvia x
