Paper: Clear and Simple Stamps Style Watch: February Week #1

February 16, 2012


Creating masculine cards for Valentine’s Day has got to be one of the most difficult papercrafting tasks out there. I am always compelled to sneak in a little pink or a few cute hearts – which often results in a completely non-masculine project.



Today, I have a clean and simple project that has plenty of Valentine’s Day flair and is also perfect for a boy. 



To create this set, I combined my Clear and Simple Stamps Baseball stamp set with a few of the background stamps included in our most recent release. Of course, I had to include one of the Party Favor dies too – I just love them!



Perhaps the best part of this gift duo is the way I was able to use the “Batty for You” sentiment from
Taglines: Little Critters in a totally new and different way. Take a look – you’re gonna go batty for it…

Until Later Loverlies,
Amber

To create this clean and simple card, I stamped the bat image with the woodgrain background stamp from Background Basics #1. Using the same technique, I added a faint heart background to the baseball image.

I continued the theme onto this cute little treat bag bu stamping the woodgrain pattern onto kraft cardstock. This treat bag is perfectly sized for a pack of baseball cards!
Even with a bit of pink and red, this set is totally ready for the favorite little (or big) boy in your life!

SUPPLIES:
STAMPS: Baseball (retired), Hearts Plus, Background Basics 1, Taglines: Critters
INK: Perfect Little Black Dress, Dare to be a Diva Red, Dish All the Dirt Brown, I’m a Princess Pink
