Happy MLK day .........

my stamping friends. As this is a day a very important male of history is honored, I thought I'd share two masculine cards I made with the ODBD January newly released sets Baptism/Confirmation and Confirmation. I have told you all many times that I have a hard time creating more masculine cards as I love lots of embellishments and flowers and such, but these wonderful stamps sets allow you to focus on the scripture and symbolism more than anything else and I felt that they would work great for something more masculine. Have a look and see for yourself ;D

John 3:5


Paper: PTI Kraft, PTI True Black, DCWV La Creme

Stamps: ODBD Baptism/Confirmation John 3:5

Ink: Kraft, VersaFine Onyx Blak

Accessories: Nesties Large Deckled Rectangles

Kraft hemp cording, silver Ichtus, Tim Holtz Distressing Tool

That is it for number 1 now on to number 2

another simple one but a little more texture as I embossed the BG.

A masculine Cross "God Bless You"


Paper:PTI Vintage Cream, SU Chocolate Chip

Stamps: ODBD Confirmation

Ink: SU Close to Cocoa (for the sponging) and Chalk Box Chestnut Roan (for the stamped images)

Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder Forest Branches, Nesties Megabilities Curved Rectangles, antique copper mini brads and eyelet, antique copper Dove

What do you think, do these two cards pass as masculine? As you can see very simple cards but yet the impact they make is remarkable as the scripture of the first one says so much and in the second one the symbolism of the cross is just well, so much said without words!!!

This is it for me for right now, make sure you check back this week as I have a few more creations to share with you ;D.

Thanks for stopping by today. It truly means a lot to me when you come and visit me.

These are both wonderful Sabrina! I love them both! Yes they would make wonderful masculine cards but could also be used for a woman too I think. I love the charms you managed to find! Goodness they are perfect! I'm so glad you have joined us in the bread basket as GDT!!!
