Masculine Blog Hop with SSInk!

Hello Happy Stampers!! We're back for another awesome Blog Hop at SSInkspiration!!  As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 5 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Bree at Craft-somnia Momma. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

Masculine cards are a bit of a struggle for some of us.  I don't send a lot of men I don't always know what to make for a guy.  Most of my "guy cards" are for my husband, my little boys, my buddies, or my 95 year old Grandpa!

I feel like this card could be for any of them!

This new stamp set Skating By is PERFECT!! for someone like me!!

Don't you just LOVE it?!!
I am a huge fan of this is just amazing!  There are a variety of sentiments, which I LOVE! since it covers a wide range of options.
I also just love that Stampin' UP! made the stamp so versatile and easy!  See the open hand?!  He can hold his guitar, paddle ball, trophy, or his iPod.  Don't want him to hold something?  see that cute little hand up there?  just give him a full hand and watch him wave.  :)  Oh, and do you see the cutout on the skateboard?!  yup...he can hold that too, or stand on it.  You wont have to do ANY masking!!  this makes for quick and easy cards!

This new InColor ribbon is to die for!  It is SO yummy!
  This is the Lost Lagoon 5/8" Cotton Ribbon ~ It comes in all of the 2014/2016 In-Colors! (Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, and Tangelo Twist)
Trust me...You will need all 5 colors.  It has a thicker texture than the typical cotton ribbon.  Feels more like a painter's drop cloth....oh I just cannot say enough good things about this ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you keep hopping along with us!  Kim at Stamping with Kim is next!

  1. You might have sold me on the ribbon...I was hesitant because I loved the satin from last year but it looks awesome on your card, which is fabulously colored!

  2. This "ROCKS"! You did a great job with your coloring the layout is perfect! Great job on your blog hop project!

  3. A very cute card and I can't wait to check out that new ribbon, so fun!

  4. I love this stamp set and your card! What are you using to color the skin tone? I tried to watercolor with Blushing Bride, but it was too pink. Thanks!

    1. I used the Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Marker.

    2. I still have my Blush Blossom marker and hope that SU! starts selling that color or a similar one soon. :)
