A Few More Masculine Cards

I get a lot of feedback that men cards are hard to come up with...so here are a few more ideas for you!  This card features some scraps that I had practiced brayering on years ago.  I believe it is from the Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves rainbow pad.  I don't brayer much...and these were in no way perfect, but they were colorful, and if you know me, I save almost everything that crosses my desk.  I don't pitch much, and often, days, weeks or even years down the road, as in this case, I find a perfect use for the pieces!    The trees are from a Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous set and how easy peasy to simply stamp them twice on this brayered scrap with Versafine Ink! 

You're in my Thoughts is from Inky Antics.
Here is another version using another oldie but goodie stamp from Stamps In Motion.  You can see on this card I left a bit of the white edges just for a bit of contrast.

And this card goes somewhere else, but it could be used for a masculine card.  It is comprised of a bunch of inchies that have been cut in half and paper quilted onto a blue piece of designer paper.  I added some red heart punches for a bit of fun.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your brayered cards Michelle - I too don't toss anything much - it has to be really bad forme to 'bin' something! Love how you have used the tree stamps.
