Happy Stamper's New Catalog Blog Hop



Hello!
Welcome to our blog hop, thanks for stopping by.

I have one sweet baby card to share with you and a Masculine card that would make a nice card for a birthday or Father's Day.

For the baby card I used the new baby stamp set, Something for Baby. This set is very sweet and the new word set, Something to Say, coordinates with it perfectly. I love it! I also used the new decorative heart mask. It comes in a set along with a star mask. I lightly sponged the entire front with hearts and on the inside I chose to sponge the hearts just along the bottom edge. The mask brings a design element from the front of the card to the inside of the card and is the perfect finishing touch! I used a 2010 Mojo Monday Sketch (#147) to create the layout for this card.

For the second card I made a Masculine card using the stamp set, Travelers. I also used the new Maritime Designer Series Paper. To bring the design from the front to the inside, for that perfect finishing touch, I added a strip of the Maritime Designer Series Paper along the bottom edge. I also used a 2010 Mojo Monday Sketch for this card. Can you tell I like to try Mojo Monday Sketches? I like to enter their weekly challenges, but I also like to go to their archives, choose a layout and design a card around it. There are years of layouts to choose from.

    1. Thank you Rachel.:) I was wondering if I would use them much, but now that I have created a few cards with them I really do like the idea that I can use them inside too! I recommend that you get them and start playing with them, I think you will enjoy the new design possibilities.

    1. Thanks Babe. Some stamp sets just SCREAM masculine and it is hard to go wrong with them. The Traveler stamp set would be a great addition for you if you are going to make some masculine cards and want some inspiration. You can check my Travelers stamp set board out on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/stampwithtrude

  21. I love the coloring on the ship, it is fantastic and coordinating those colors with the DSP really makes the ship "pop"

    1. Thanks Barbara. I used Night of Navy to stamp the ship and then sponged Coastal Cabana lightly above the ship for the clouds and heavier along the bottom for the water. Then I sponged a little Night of Navy along the bottom of the ship to simulate a shadow. The red was applied with a Real Red Stampin' Write marker.
