Just Add Blokes #176
I am cleaning up my craft room and found these pieces I was working with last weekend, when I had a special order card (which will appear on my blog in a few days time).
I had been flicking through the challenges and found the Just Add Ink challenge, Just Add Blokes!
When I made my other card, I had tried a dry embossed piece of Crumb Cake and a smooth piece, and I chose the smooth, leaving this piece, embossed with the Lattice Embossing Folder and stamped with Gorgeous Grunge stamps to use on another card. The ink and card colours are Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake, quite a blokey combination.
By the way, bloke is an term of endearment in Australia/New Zealand for any male really. When Julia Guillard was Prime Minister of Australia, her male partner was always referred to by the press as First Bloke.
I decided to add some to my already stamped and cut rosette from Blue Ribbon Stamp set by winding some linen thread around a wide banner cut from the Midnight Muse DSP stack, popping an arrow paper clip onto that as well and adhering it all together. Visit again in a few days to see my one-step-up version.
If you are needing a stamp for Father's Day cards, male birthdays, graduations(male or female) Blue Ribbon on page 17 of the new catalogue might be the stamp set you are after. Its $39.95 for Clear mount and $49.95 for wood mount. You can place orders through my online store here.(Australian delivery only)That link will take you directly to the Blue Ribbon Stamp set if you'd like to take a look.
My husband and I are off tonight on a trip to Ireland, England and finishing in Paris tonight leaving our sons at home to look after the pets, such a good arrangement!
I have scheduled blog posts to occur from time to time so if you are a regular visitor to my blog, there will still be something new for you to see.
Cheerio for now,
