My Take

Hi Stampers! I finally made it back...what a long day. For some reason I just loved today's Unscripted sketch. I have made two cards so far and think I might do some "mower". ;)

In case you would like to try it, here is the sketch. Now for my second card, I did the circle as a cutout window.
It's really hard to tell that it's cut out. I just couldn't figure out the best way to photograph the card to show the window.

The grass was run through the paper crimper at a slight angle and then again at a different angle which makes it sort of wavy. I simply snipped the top. And the golfer's outfit is paper pieced so he could match the card! Here is the inside.
stamps: And Many Mower (from the mini-catalog)
cardstock: sahara sand, very vanilla (mower card), whisper white (golfer), garden green, unidentified plaid
ink: mower--staz on timber brown, real red, so saffron, crayola gray ; golfer--staz on timber brown, bashful blue, certainly celery, gable green, creamy caramel, really rust and copics for skin (yes Heather and Emily I used them!)
accessories: small designer series circle brad
This set is really fun and is great because it has images and sentiments. Gotta have it? The set is available through June 30 in the Occasions mini catalog pictured in the right side bar.
Glad you stopped by! Tasha

Hi Tasha! Thanks for joining us this week! Your cards are wonderful! I always have difficulty with masculine cards but you rocked it! Great job!

Just a suggestion about the picture of a window card. Turn the card more to the left, so that the opening of the card is facing your camera a bit more. Take the picture at an angle from the right side of it, so that you can still see the whole front of the card. There are tons of those types of pics on my blog if you need a visual. Hope that helps!

Awesoem card Tasha, I'm so glad you joined us this week. I wish I could made a card with a window, even if it didn't photograph well I can picture it and love it!

Tasha this is just adorable!! I mean seriously ! i love these cards and they are perfect for the men in our lives! The linen effect on the background and the great distressing you did on the first card is perfect! And your coloring and crimping on the grass on the second is a great idea! I never would have thought of that! I so need to try it!!! You really blew me away with these two!
