It’s a wild, wet and windy day here in the North East of the UK and feels like summer has been and gone 🙁
We’ve only a week left of the school holidays too, which leaves me with a mix of emotions. As much as I want The Beans to go back and get back into some form of normal routine, I am going to miss having them around again!
Today they have been playing nicely with Lego and gadgets in their playroom, which meant I had a little time in between housework to finish these two cards!
From a recent poll over on Instagram, asking if you wanted to see masculine or feminine cards, masculine came out on top, so that’s what I have started with. Though they do have a little bit of a feminine flair ‘maybe’ with my rainbow colour scheme.
I have a few ‘go to’ clear stamps when it comes to making masculine cards these are the Background Blocks and Background Builder stamps that are often more geometric in theme.
For this first card I have used a favourite of mine which recently came back in stock, Background Builders Wonky Stripes. This is such a fun and focal point stamp that all it needs is a little simple accessorising. Like I have done here with the balloons from Balloon Bash and the Celebrate sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.
I have a ‘thing’ for rainbow colours at the moment and I couldn’t resist using them, even though I knew I was making a masculine card. I do have a few male friends that love a rainbow!
I continued my theme of rainbows and stripes for my second card. This time I used the Background Block Wonky Stripes to create an angled strip up the side of my card.
That’s all from me today. Hopefully I will find some more creative time this week, I need to make two 6th Birthday cards for The Beans! Can you believe they turn 6 next week?? Where have those 6 years gone?!
Thanks for stopping by & stay safe.
