For the Guys HSS119 {Sneak Peeks}

Pin It Now! Hello my friends!  It's time for another fun Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  This week's challenge is a masculine theme, and with Father's Day just around the corner, it's a great opportunity to plan ahead.

Experience tells me that my guy likes cards that are clean, simple, but warm on tones. And he likes different folds, all my boys seem to notice that in a card.  Here's what I came up with...

A gatefold card, showcasing some NEW Designer Series Paper!  Available June 1, it's called Comfort Cafe.  Aside from these great masculine chevron patterns, there are some attractive florals that will be great for Fall. Also NEW are the Designer Naturals Buttons. Great woodtones!

Here's the challenge:

I'm also linking up with Mojo Monday for the sketch that helped me along in my Masculine Theme Mental Block.  Oh, how I wanted to stick a bow on there somewhere.

Here's a closer look at the new goodies...nice patterns, eh?  Very on-trend!

Thanks for looking! I hope you'll join in on the HSS Masculine Theme this week and create something for that guy of yours!

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika.
