Time Flies!

Well hello again,

Back to the grindstone as the new school term begins - now how many days was it until the next break? Lol.

I'm here today with news of our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week it's my turn to choose the theme - so here goes. For the next seven days my chosen theme will be


This is a favourite of mine for male-themed cards and I think it's an easy one to do for guys. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

It's 6x6" in size and there I go again with the mirri card - gold this time to go with the neutral colour scheme. I used one of my new embossing folders to dry emboss a piece of brown Co-ordinations cardstock, then sanded it back gently to highlight. The focal piece is made up using lots of different little stamps which I masked - the main pocket watch is embossed with gold detail powder. I've had this stamp set for ever and can't remember which company it's from - but it's always a good one to turn to for this theme (the sentiment is from the same set).

Hope you can join us this week.
Hugz, Jan xx


  1. Great masking on the clock panel Jan, thought it was a montage stamp. :)

  2. Great card. I love how you sanded the card stock. I'll have to try that.

  3. I didn't realise earlier this was a collection of individual stamps, thought it was an all in one. How clever, never thought of that, of course will now be CASing this design. A good theme choice, backed up with a wonderful Design team card. Thanks xxx

  4. Great job on embossing and masking here!!! Bravo! The focal point collage is impressive work indeed.

  5. Gorgeous stamping and lovely colour choice
