Hey there! Here’s my second card for the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on Splitcoast. (If you are not a Splitcoast Fan Club Member you will need to follow this link.) This one I made for Jen’s (genie1314) challenge! This is a new set called Let’s Hear it for the Boys. It’s one of the new sets from My Favorite Things and will be released August 1. I typically have a hard time with guy cards, guess cause I don’t have the need to make many. Besides, this is probably only the second stamp set that I even own for guys. I thought I was gonna have problems with it, but actually once I got to coloring and playing around, it came together quite easily. I colored the image with Copic markers and used some scraps of BasicGrey that I had tucked away.

Hope everyone is enjoying the challenges (if you are playing) and I’m head into the gallery now and start commenting!

My first card today, is my submission for Beate’s challenge. I broke out my new Le Jardin designer papers and dug out one of my favorite stamp sets. So glad this one made it into the new catty! The backgrounds are all using the designer paper, but the sentiment panel is a scrap of Very Vanilla that I stamped on very lightly with the French Flaire background stamp and the fleur de lis from Carte Postale, then stamped the sentiment over the top. The edges were distressed and then sponged with distress ink and the panels were sewn together on the sewing machine.
