In search of my mojo....

I've been struggling to design cards that are new and different.  It seems to take ages to come up with an idea and when it comes to creating male cards I have even more problems.  I decided this week that I would 'bite the bullet' and join an online class to see if I could find inspiration - so I have joined One Layer Card 3 organised by onlinecardclasses.  It is a mixture of video tutorials and PDFs - so far so good - today is day 3 and this card is inspired by the masking and stamping technique.  I have also taken on board the colour challenge over at The Male Room Challenge Blog where you need to produce a male card using Blue, Green and Brown and will enter the challenge with this:

I used the following:

Stampin Up inks - Not Quite Navy, Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar
Distress Ink - Pine Needles
Inkadinkado Clear Stamps - Steam Punk
Docrafts Papermania Chronology Stamps



  1. Love how you've done a circle with your stamping - It really grabs your attention and is a great guys card!!

  2. I've been following these classes too, but not manged to make anything yet. I think your card is fantastic. This masking and stamping technique is perfect for a one layer card. Love the steampunk feel to your card. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room this week!

  3. I love that stamp! It's perfect for a male card, and awesome when used with this technique!!
