OWH Sketch Challenge 166


Hello, peeps!  Have you all come down from your Easter candy sugar high? Hope you had a great day. I had a fun afternoon with my kids and grandaughter then had some time to play in my craft room.

My craft room was as cleaned up as it ever gets...boy, does that get the mojo flowing! I pulled out the Latte matstack from DCWV, some masculine stamp sets from Stampin Up, and decided to play along with the OWH Sketch Challenge.

I stamped the Lighthouse image in Memento London Fog.  For the embellishments I tried three charcoal banners on one, and three light gray ribbon banners on the other.  Never quite sure how to embellish guy cards...looking forward to the Spring Training Bloghop at OWH next weekend to get some masculine card ideas!

Thanks for stopping by...have a great week!

  1. Both are wonderful cards. The one with the three banners is wonderfully embellished. Tfs!!!!

  2. Such a nice and stylish looking card. I love that lighthouse stamps and it looks so great even not colored. I may need to get a stamp like it, because it works so well for masculine cards. Great job with this week's sketch!

  3. Your cards are classy for any dad! I love the soft, subtle colors you used, and I like your take on the sketch too! NJ!

  4. Wonderful dad cards, love the colors and great interpretation of the the circles with the ribbons and flags!

  5. Great take on the sketch! The lighthouse stamp has wonderful detail and you let it stand out with your clean and simple style!

  6. these are great manly cards...hope you have a fabulous week!

    enjoy *~*

  7. Fantastic masculine cards Shari. That stamp is great for a Dad card or masculine card as well. I really love the 2nd one with the sentiment is stamped on the card and the three banners as accents. Thanks for playing!
