Just Add Ink 88... Just add a Die cut

HELLO!!! How are you fellow lovers of stamping?? I hope that your week is wonderful! I have had a busy week thus far but in saying that it is a good one!
I was super excited when I saw this challenge and had to make 2 male birthday cards for the weekend festivities!!! In saying that all my "die cuts" looked quite "girlie" and I was for a moment stumped at what I'd use. Then thanks to Bronwyn's amazing owl tag I thought I'd make a tag too and slide it in the wonderful pocket die! YAY!
My amazing hubbie had his birthday on Saturday and also a friend had one just Monday, I made both the cards different but using the same sorta style......
Here is Allan's

So LOVE Cajun craze!!

Tag slides out

Scallop edge cut from the envelope

Now for Andy's

Mustard is such a great colour for men!

Reverse side of tag... it was his 40th!

I cut the top of the scallop envelope and then added it to the tag for a border on the side, the rest was just using some retired DSP and having fun with spritzing and sponging and other rough ways to add texture to a card!
Do you have trouble making Male cards??? What do you like to add to yours?
Do make sure you check out the amazing creations over at JAI you'll be inspired FOR SURE!

Happy Birthday to YOU!

Today is my wonderful son's birthday! He is turning 8!!! I still can't actually believe it, it just goes to show how much you need to enjoy EVERY day!!! He had a "LAN" which is a computer gaming party on Saturday and then family last night and tonight he'll be eating his favourite home-made chips and left over Jelly slice that Nanny made!!! YUMMO!!!
I always have fun with a theme and with a computer party it got me thinking about how I could make one for an invite......

I used Crystal effects to make the cool screen and then rounded off the edges to give the overall look to the computer! Then with some circles to look like keys with the info stamped on I was pretty happy with how it turned out!!!

Well I'm off to continue tea prep and play with the birthday boy!!!
