April's Stampin' Up Card Club Cards!

Way to go, Kathy! She's been giving us lots of GREAT options for male/masculine cards to make! the 'girly' ones seems so easy, but what do you make as a card for the men?
We all have them... Dad, Grandpa, son, nephew, cousin, etc. etc. Kathy always comes up with excellent cards we can use for the men in our lives!

Here we used the dotted jumbo wheel (retired) and another stamp in Close to Coca ink for the inked piece, the 'new' Modern Label punch, and the Happy Birthday stamp in silver embossing powder from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. A grommet and some brown satiny ribbon set off the paper perfectly! Can you see how the base cream colored piece is just lightly embossed?

This adorable card is from the brand new 2 step-stampin' set called: Awash with Flowers. You can order it in the upcoming release in July - but this is a sneak peek! It's an adorable card again using the Modern Label punch and the Teeny Tiny Wishes.

We also used another technique - I'm not sure you can see it unless you look VERY closely. We sprayed some of the Shimmer Paints onto the pink background. Lots of fun, and it looks SO pretty!!

We use those Teeny Tiny Wishes so much... I'll have to re-think purchasing them!
