Another masculine card

Howdy :)

I'm on a bit of a roll with these masculine cards ;)

I ordinarily avoid buying specific stamps, preferring to buy stamps I know I will use over and over, but when I spotted this little beauty at my local craft fair, I had to have it (plus I had a very excited DH in the background encouraging me to buy it, lol)!

I distressed all the edges and inked with DI.

For the lovely ladies over at Top Tip Tuesday, my tip for this week is to stamp your image with the SAME DI that you distress with, as it gives a nice co-ordinated finish, without "blending in" too much!

The papers are Tim Holtz Idealogy Lost and Found
Tags are Melissa Frances Mini Flash Cards
Stamp is Dark Room Door Old Truck Photo Stamp
DI is Brushed Corduroy

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday Challenge 48 - Masculine Card
Papertake Weekly - Dies to Die For
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenges - Challenge 162 - Happy Birthday

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. A lovely vintage card and tip. Thanks for joining Top Tip Tuesday. Elaine

  2. LOL...it's always helpful when our DH's "encourage" us buy stamps. Like I need any help with supporting my addiction to stamping though..HAHAHA.
    Beautiful masculine card you've created and your TIP is wonderful too.
    Thanks SO much for joining us at TOP TIP TUESDAY for our "masculine" challenge.
    Good luck to you....
