Team Swap Card

This week has had a decidedly Fall-like theme, which is perfect, given the weather in these parts.  Definitely feeling - and looking - like Fall!
One of the things I look forward to at my monthly team meetings is our team swap.  This month's theme was masculine cards...did you just do a groan?  Why is it so many of us have such trouble creating cards for the men in our lives??  I actually love making Man-cards!  It's fun to pull out my non-flower stamps once in a while!  Here is the card I made for our swap:

Man-card featuring the Maginificent Maple  and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.
This was easier than it had to be - I made a bunch of them!  Here's the how-to:
  • I started by stamping the Magnificent Maple image in Cajun Craze on Naturals Ivory card stock.  Then I used my blender pen and Cherry Cobble ink to blend the colours in the leaf.  
  • I stamped one of the spatter images from Gorgeous Grunge in Early Espresso ink.
  • I pierced the circles using the Essentials Paper Piercing template.
  • I added a bit of Burlap ribbon, securing it with two brads from the Antique Trinkets.
Easy peasy!

Now don't forget...

 You, too, can be part of my team of stamping friends when you join for just $25!!  If you've ever wondered what it would be like to be a part of the Stampin' Up! family, this is the time to take it for a test-drive!  For very little investment (actually, no investment because you get a $26.95 stamp set in your Starter Kit!) you can see what it's like to be a part of this wonderful family.  I would love to have you join my circle of friends.  Click HERE to learn more about this amazing opportunity.
