Guy Greetings meets Stacked With Love

The countdown has begun for Valentine's Day.  It's time to make those Valentine cards again.  This year there are some great "guy" themes in the stamps and papers of the new Occasions Catalogue.  I decided to make a tag with the muscle-man from Guy Greetings and then used a piece from the Stacked With Love Designer Series paper stack for my background.

I threw in some white, some Calypso Coral, a bit of Real Red some black and touches of gold.  I love the effect!  That gilded pocket watch was such fun to heat emboss using the retired Clockworks stamp set.  The scalloped polka dot Black ribbon is also retired but works beautifully for the top of the tag.  My sentiment is from the Good Greetings stamp set.




























I've entered my card into three challenges.  It's perfect for the sketch in the Just Add Ink Challenge.


I've also entered my card into the SUO Challenge which is all about Valentine wishes this week.

And finally I've entered my card into the Stampin' Celebration Challenge which is all about love this week.

I hope you'll check out these challenges to see what others have submitted.

  1. Love your masculine take on the challenge at JAI. Great use of the DSP and then pulling the same colours out for the the rest of your card. Fantastic colouring of the 'muscle man' from the Guy Greetings stamp set. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink.
