October Stamp Club card three

 Mastering the Masculine card. My Stamp Club members are going to be professionals by the end of the year, right?

Selecting your color is a great place to start, a nice deep Cherry Cobbler is a great place to start. It would also be a great color for Christmas cards. And if you peek at the Clearance Rack on the Stampin' Up! site, you will see the 12 x 12" Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations card stock is unbelievably priced.

We used the new Framelit to easily cut this flip-flop card. Start with a 6 x 6" piece of card stock and run it through your Big Shot, you'll get 4 cards out of one sheet of paper!

Then we used the clock, compass, gears and bits and pieces from the Clockworks Stamp set to make our own background, some postage stamps and the focal point.

Grab your Delightful Dozens stamp set for a sentiment, there are some great ones in this set. A sponge and the Crumb Cake ink pad to "age" the very vanilla pieces.

If you have the Hexagon punch, it will make all your flags or banners perfectly. I didn't think of it when making the sample, but the club members had it available. Nice, perfect flagged ends.

Hope this gives you a little inspiration when trying to create masculine cards!

Happy Stamping,
Dee Tollaksen
