These are my 3 cards for the Masculine Manly Male Swap.
The first one goes out to everyone in the swap.
It uses the stamp set Set Sail (retired Stampin' Up!) and Weathered. I used Blue Bayou, Soft Sky (both retired Stampin' Up! In Colours) and Basic Gray paper. Blue Bayou ink was the only ink used.
This is a CASE of a card that I found on SCS.
I tried to do a bit more "lifting" in this card then I usually do (with dimensionals) as well as a bit of distressing.
This second card went out to only those that signed up for 2 spots in the swap.
It's also a CASE from a card on SCS using Happiness is a Journey stamp set (current from Stampin' Up!). I also used the Aida Cloth background stamp with some masking. The colours are Naturals Ivory, Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi.
This last card only went out to those swappers who signed up for 3 spots (they get all 3 cards).
Again I used Set Sail but this time with no dimensionals but encorporating the label technique and some sponging (I found the labels at the local office supply store).
