I was really drawn to all the cute animals in the Stampin' Up! Jan.-April mini catalog and the owls in the Sale-a-Bration brochure. I couldn't resist the cuteness of the Silly Goose stamp set especially. That and the fact that you can make a pretty quick card with white geese...hardly any coloring needed!
This week's installment of Testosterone Tuesday isn't overtly male themed but the fresh colors and clean lines do seem more masculine to me.
My stampers made this card at my last Quick & Easy card class which I hold once a month and it's perfect for new stampers or casual crafters who love to have a few extra cards on hand. Though my more avid stampers seem to love it as well. It's a class for all levels! Check out my events calendar to see if you can join an upcoming class HERE.
Since this is a very straightforward card design I won't go over every detail but will just point out a few things. We don't currently have Stampin' Blends markers in Coastal Cabana but using the Pool Party dark and Bermuda Bay light markers gets you pretty close which are used here for the balloon. The Gray Granite light marker is perfect for a tiny bit of shading at the wings and under the feet.
The 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer paper is a great way to add a bit of shine and shimmer while still keeping the overall design quick & easy and the ombre effect is a nice bit of interest.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
