Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2


fathers day hammer

I may not be the only stamper out there with a shortage of masculine stamps, even though my card giving occasions for men are really few and far between. However, with this new Whimsical Wishes set Boys will be Boys, I will have lot of choices for making great masculine cards!

On my card, I used the tool belt for my focal image and the new
Father’s Day Key Ingredients, a great selection of Prism cardstock colors: Intense Orange, Tawny Medium, Intense Teal, Island Mist, Light Blush and Red Dark. The patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Lil' Man and the neutral cardstock is Choice Buttercream, in addition to some great coordinating ribbon, 20 screw brads, and a package of coordinating buttons.

Two things I used on my card that are not included in the key ingredients but is available in the Boys will be Boys Bundle, is the metal sheet behind my focal image and the fun little silver hammer charm (I cut off the hole that was on the top since I wasn’t using it to hang on anything) and the metal sheet was 'hammered' with the screws for visual interest!

I used the SCS sketch for my card from two weeks ago {SC225} which is great to showcase the great pattern papers in this kit!

Here is info on the special bundle this month - all this great stamping stuff will be available for purchase tomorrow May 5th at 10:00 a.m. CST at Taylored Expressions!
