Stamp Review Crew: Guy Greetings Edition


  • Do you struggle with making masculine cards?
  • Do you need ideas for Father's Day cards, or guy birthday cards, or guy cards in general? 
  • Do you own - or are thinking of buying Guy Greetings stamp set?

Then the Stamp Review Crew's Blog Hop featuring the Guy Greetings stamp set may be just what you need for some inspiration!

The blog hop officially begins Monday, May 16th but we go live early so we can make sure everything is up and running. Therefore, there may be some broken links early on. 

If you arrived here from super talented Sue Plote's blog, then you are right on track!

I used the old timey car image from this fabulous set and watercolored a Father's Day card.

I used watercolor paper for the top panel and colored it with Dapper Denim, one of the new In Colors that will be available June 1st. I love the intense blue of this new ink when it is diluted a bit with water. The card stock (base of the card) is not quite as bright and neither is the ink when stamped so don't be alarmed fooled by that. 

The ground under the car is Soft Suede ink and if you look closely at the car there is a touch of Cajun Craze for a bit of car rust. Haha. The beauty of watercolor of course, is how the inks move where the water takes them and creates a wonderful blend. 

Another new product that isn't available till June 1st is Foam Adhesive strips. They are meant to be used for shaker cards but I bought them to use instead of dimensionals to raise up a panel as seen below.

I love the even height and stability that these strips give to a raised panel. 
I listed the supplies at the end of this post. Enjoy the rest of the hop! The next stop is going to be Dawn Tidd's blog. She always has something amazing to show!


Product List - click on any picture to see details or to order. The pictures for Dapper Denim ink and card stock and for the Adhesive Strips are not available till June 1st. Oops! I forgot to add Basic Black Archival ink.
