Male birthday card using Moon Lake by Stampin' Up

There's something for everyone in the Stampin' Up spring/summer catalogue and if you love traditional-style stamps I bet you're over the moon with Moon Lake! (Did you see what I did there?!) These natural images are great for male cards - come and see:

Stamp these images in Stazon ink and they're ready to watercolour! There's no artistry required as they're already shaded - you just daub ink onto them and they look great! I masked my panel with sticky notes and scored the edges of the inked part to add interest.

A strip of washi tape and a couple of staples makes a lovely embellishment for a male card - definitely not too fussy or frilly!

Have you checked out the Crazy about You sentiment set in the Stampin' Up spring/summer catalogue yet? It's a really useful set with loads of different words and phrases in a great upper case font - and there are some gorgeous extra images too!

Our beautiful Golden Retriever pup would feel very at home in the scene I stamped today as she has a double coat, with a waterproof one underneath, and webbed feet - yes really! I've read loads of books about puppies and one of my favourites is The Perfect Puppy by Gwen Bailey. This bit made me laugh: "If you are a fairly reserved person, unused to being silly in public, practise in private," advises Gwen. Well at least that's one thing my family won't have to do since we are all very skilled in that department!

Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you on Monday.
