2 for Father's Day

I got requests for Father's Day cards.  One for a motorcycle and the other for a hunter.
This one uses the layout from Clean & Simple Stamping.  I kept it very simple with just some embossing and drawn lines.  The colors are Sahara Sand and Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.  The image and sentiment are a very sharp black.

This one uses the layout from Just Add Ink.  I stamped in Chocolate and Soft Suede.  I used 3 stamp sets - Nature Silhouettes, French Foliage and And Many Mower.

These cards both qualify for the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to make Manly cards.  I know this because MY HUSBAND LIKED THEM BOTH!

Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week, Trish - and congratulations on having your husband like both cards (unheard of in my household!). Love the foliage stamped behind the buck on the Father's Day card; great take on the sketch.

Great use of both layouts and I love that you are taking special orders for people. I bet you feel like me, wishing there was more variety in masculine stamps so we can take more special orders. :) I love both cards and all of the texture you added. Great color choice, too. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

These cards are fabulous! I really like how the motorcycle was framed. It's too cool that your husband gave his stamp of masculine approval. Thank you for adding to our challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

Your husband has fine taste, because they are both wonderful cards! The cool, rugged biker card and the rustic hunter's card are both quintessential man cards! Thanks for sharing your talent at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Erika

Oh I like this! Very simple...like a man! Just kidding:-) But I do love the clean design and how perfect is that embossing folder for that stamp! Thanks for playing at HSS!
