Masculine Birthday Cards

I have 3 birthdays in October and I need masculine themed cards.  Gosh, those are a challenge for me.  I like bling, bright colors, glitter, flowers - you get the idea.  Unfortunately, I don't have any masculine type rubber stamp images.  I'll make an effort to look out for some new rubber stamps with a masculine theme.

Here's the card I made for the Oct 2, 2015 Week-end Challenge for the SU Stampin Gals Gone Wild Facebook group.  I think the name for the group is a hoot!  Stampin Gals Gone Wild...most of ladies in this group are Seniors - as in Senior Citizens!!!  It just makes me laugh, but it's a fun bunch nonetheless.

Triple Square Direct to Paper Card

On 9/25/2015 The Stampin Gals Gone Wild Facebook group posted a color challenge to the group.  I've tried to participate every week-end.  Luckily, I almost had all the colors to participate except for Stampin Up's (SU) Rich Razzleberry card stock.  BUT, I had the ink pad in that color.  That's when I remembered the direct-to-paper technique I learned a long time ago.  So I inked up the white cardstock and viola - Rich Razzleberry card stock!

The Get Well Card quickly came together.  I used punches to cut the squares - no measuring.
