Masculine Birthday Cards

Well, I needed some male birthday/father's day cards for my stash. This is my favorite boyish stamp set. Brooklyn and I put Aly down for a nap, and we had a stamping filled afternoon and watch soaps. My kind of afternoon! :)

I wanted to add some texture to his rug, so I took my colorless blender and dabbed it all around. I also sponged with creamy caramel ink (even on the ribbon) to dirty it up a bit!

Paper: Kraft, Baja Breeze, Manchester designer paper from su, papertrey vintage cream

Accessories: Linen thread new su ribbon

Ink: Adirondack Espresso, Copic markers (see below)

Here's another one I got done: I'm all about Kraft right now...

I paper pieced his chair, and tried to keep it fairly neutral. I loove all the new su designer paper!
