Craft class

Had a lovely evening yestarday. Tracey was running a stampin up class and it was great fun. Although I must remember to take my glasses next time.

This is the first card we made. I loved the sanded stamp we used, it was great. The little plane is perfect. 
As per usual I had to do it slightly differently. Most of the ladies had the stipes at the bottom and the blue at the top, but I didn't want to clog up the stripes with the image and ribbon. 
I know, I'm just being awkward again.

Not sure how easy it is to see, but the plane is decoupaged.

I unfortunately can't remember the name of the stamp set.......typical.
Our second card was lots of fun..........I hope you'll agree

A sail boat in a ships wheel. This is a fab card for any age of male. The sailboat stamp looks great all by itself, but the cut-out sails just allow it to pop. We also made a matching tag (forgot to photo that....)

Both stamp sets are from Stampin Up, the papers/card too. I have to admit I really like this cherry cobbler coloured card, but then I really like the soft suede too.............why does life have to have so many choices...LOL

Hope you find these inspiring
Off to do my shopping before I vanish into my craft space.

Be back later with luck

Buffy - Stampin Up stuff is fab - just love the colours (and their names). Both these cards are terrific. I particularly like the plane - great colours and carry on being different - it really works :) Hugs, xx

Buffy, the cherry cobbler looks great WITH the soft suede so you can love both at the same time! LOL! LOVE these cards and think it's GREAT that you put your own take on the plane card! I like the stripes better the way you have it! BOTH cards are very masculine and FUN!
