Man Cards!

My next craft club has come around really quickly and I have been trying really hard to get together some samples for our Man card theme. It's surprising how many suitable stamps I have, because I always seem to struggle for ideas for men! However I could have gone on and on and I have so many more projects in my head!!! It's a shame I havn't got the time to sit in my craft room making up some more, but here are some I have " almost" completed. Just havn't put greetings on some of them because they can then be suitable for different occasions if I'm stuck at any time!
This first card is using the golfer from the Murray and Ethal stamp set. One of my favourites which I have used a lot, this time a more vintage Theme!

The next two cards are made using stamps from new A4 sets which can be found on the websiteParticraft They are great fun and can be used in so many ways. I have used our new Cosmic Shimmer mists to create the paper for the Tie, papers from my stash and some distress inks for creating the apron. Cosmis Shimmer mica pigments were used to paint the tools. All available from Particraft

The following uses two unmounted stamps fromParticraft . The map was embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Viola black embossing powder, onto Pale blue card which has been misted with Mica pigments. The edges were torn and Distressed then dusted with pigments. The ship was embossed with the same and painted with the pigments. All available fromParticraft

We are now in the process of clearing out our kitchen in preperation for it being refitted as from Monday. Oh no! - How on earth am I going to get ready for Tuesday's craft club?! Well I must get on and finish packing! As from Monday we'll be living off Take Aways and microwave meals. Hope to catch up soon
Thanks for popping by. It's really appreciated.
