August Stamp Club

Time for another round of Stamp Club. With Father's Day next month the challenge was to come up with something masculine. Seems to get alot of people stumped as to what to use. I have already put together a couple of cards. You can see them here and here, but I had some more ideas that I wanted to try.

I usually start out with the colour combo. Keeping the lines clean you can still add details with stitching, buttons and embellishments like staples and paper clips. The 'dad' card started with the all in the family dad image. I saw this card on Maureen's blog, Buttons and Bling and changed the eyelets for buttons. The award card was inspired by this card at Stamping a Latte. I had loads of fun putting them together.

Colours: going grey, basic grey, tempting turquoise, old olive
Stamps: circle of friendship, background sampler, little pieces, rough type alpha
Finishing touches: scallop circle punch, circle punches, star punch, faux stitching, paper clip, patterned paper (october afternoon)

Colours: night of navy, sahara sand, old olive, cajun craze
Stamps: all in the family, trendy trees, background sampler
Finishing touches: alpha stencil, spiral punch, mat pack, buttons, linen thread, staples, faux stitiching, patterned paper (3 bugs in a rug)
