I visited my favorite quilting shop this past weekend and spent over an hour choosing, changing, hunting, and drooling over fabric. I have a very special project ahead of me for a hero in our family. Our dear cousin, Ty Buchanan is serving in the Marines, and is currently stationed overseas. We want to send some love his way, so I am going to attempt yet another larger size quilt.

|I used the stamps from January's My Paper Pumpkin Kit to create a page that would work for weddings, anniversary celebrations or just anyone you might love.|
Poor little hobbit house, guess he needs some tractor work too!
I used white card stock and stamped the row of eggs in versa mark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Once the powder was cooled, I used a dauber and rubbed ink on blending the colors. Then I took a paper towel and rubbed off the excess ink from the white embossed areas. Wa-la! Cool background.
If you are interested in trying out this technique you can join me at The Stamp Pad on March 5th or 26th at 6pm for Card Club and make this card. RSVP ASAP so you have a seat saved.

Most of my guy cards end up with a tree on it. Well it is high time to change it up. So what do I use... wood grain designer series paper! ha how ironic!
This is the super easiest, super fastest guy card ever. But I had some help. Stampin Up has created a new Paper Stack called Adventure Bound and it is simply amazing for all guy cards.

Tell you what if you have lots of guys in your family that you send cards too, this is the paper stack to get. AND get a few of them to have on hand for years to come. There are trees, wood, sweater pattern, grass, rocks, bricks, water and more. It is awesome!
It makes for great guy cards in just using the paper and a greeting as in my card above. The strip across the front is just the paper flipped and glued. Two sided all guy all great paper.
Now lets take embellishments. I know I said no ribbon, no bows.... but how about twine or linen thread? Our Bakers Twine comes in lots of colors, and the linen thread goes with with guys card. We also carry burlap ribbon too. So this "guy" looking trim will work great, just don't tie it in a bow! ha
We used a new stamp set from the occasions catalog. - Love it! With having 4 grandchildren I can make some uber cute cards and packaging designs for them.

I stamped the images in Memento black ink, and colored them in using the new blendabilities markers. The more I used them the more I love them.
