This one’s for the guys!

Howdy crafty folk šŸ™‚ I decided to make a few cards for guys to have on hand since most of my cards tend to be, well, let’s say a bit feminine. I used my Steampunk Style and Seaside Sketches stamps as well as the Steampunk SVG cutting files to make this set:

Stamps and Die cuts: Lindsay's stamp stuff

I love how by using the Steampunk SVG set (I cut the designs with my Cricut and SCAL software) I could add some decorative details to the cards without making them fussy looking.

I colored these images with my ProMarker andPrismacolor markers, I deliberately did not try to blend, rather I went for more expressive strokes.

the papers I used are from Graphic 45 and K&co, I printed my digital images on Neenah 80# super smooth cardstock. These cards qualify for the following Challenges: Aly’s Sunday Challenge (under the sea-beach card), Cards for Men (Adventure-truck card), The Crafty Pad (chocolate and cream-truck card), Order of Opus Gluei (summer-beach card), Pear Tree Designs (male card), Pile it on (a little bit country, little bit rock n rool, I think Steampunk cards fit this there:), Practical scrappers (summer) and Your Next Stamp (birthdays)

Now how about a freebie? I’ve got my sights set on Halloween these days. Here is a creepy little freebie for ya. Click the pic, the right click, save as, to download.
