Mainly Masculine SUO #175

Because I am planning classes for the next months well in advance, I have been playing about with masculine cards for my August class. This happily coincides with a challenge at SUO Challenges, Mainly Masculine.

Guy Greetings is such a favourite stamp of mine, and I have used all the images, except the man, quite frequently. As we are nearing the end of the catalogue, I am cutting my DSP into card-front-sized pieces and making every effort to use them myself, or in classes. This is from the Nailed It suite, which I am so sorry is not carrying over. Maybe Stampin' Up!® will reconsider, if we let them know that people still want to purchase it. I know for a fact that it totally sold out in Australia, soon after the retiring list was announced.

This is quite a classic card design, often best for a masculine card. The Smokey Slate Stitched Oval features a vintage car and the birthday sentiment, while a banner of Crushed Curry carries the sub-title.
There are some more nice designs over on the Stampin' Up!® Only blog, check it out.

Enjoy a crafty weekend,
Rachel Palmieri


  1. Rachel, love your masculine card! The DSP looks fabulous behind the vintage car as well as your finishing touches with the banners and stitched die! Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges and keeping my fingers crossed as well that SU! will bring back the Nailed It! Suite :-) Hugs and we hope you will play along with us again soon!

  2. Excellent Masculine card Rachel! The Urban dsp goes great with the old car image. Thanks for playing along with the SUO Challenge.

  3. What a good combination of DSP and stamp set. Great project, and just perfect for our masculine challenge. So glad you joined the fun at SUO Challenges!!


  5. I love the color combo! With Crushed Curry a featured color in lots of stuff in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, I will have lots of opportunity to use it. You did a lovely job with it as an accent. Thanks for joining in the SUO Challenges this time!
