The Paper Players #554

The Paper Players is having a Clean and Simple Masculine theme challenge this week! I am always needing masculine cards, so I was determined to make time to play along! I am also over due a huge thanks to Dare 2B Artzy! I love playing with stamps and paper….and entering challenges has become almost a secondary obsession! Dare 2B Artzy hosts a month blog challenge and I was the lucky winner last month! This card features one of the sets that I purchased in their store. Thanks so much for the gift card!

I was drawn to the Hats Off stamp set due to adorable baseball theme and this awesome sentiment! While, I have tons of baseball scrapbook pages to get caught up on….I knew this sentiment would be great in my cardmaking! Far too often, we let fear stop us from playing the game!

Since it is for a clean and simple challenge, my card is just that! I few simple layers to highlight the great sentiment. My ball cap was stamped in Outdoor Denim ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. I blended out the pencils with Gamsol. The cap was mounted with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

  • Hats Off Stamp Set-Dare 2B Artzy
  • Outdoor Denim Cardstock-Retired
  • X6046 French Vanilla Cardstock

  1. I can see why this set ended up in your basket Allisa – that quote makes a great centrepiece on a card! Love the cap and co-ordinating plaid frame too. A great masculine card – thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
