I recently held a workshop for a dear friend, Kelly, and she requested that I do all masculine cards.

But, more specifically, she wanted me to use this stamp set. 

I'm a 'girly girl' so masculine products aren't big in my paper crafting artillery.

But I rose to the challenge!

My friend, Lyssa Zwolneck, created a card using this same layout with the stamp set, Lovely as a Tree, which I've previously blogged.

I simply changed up the stamp set for Kelly's workshop.

…and Kelly was happy!


Nearly everyone purchased the Hardwood background stamp. It's gorgeous!

This detailed stamp looks so real!

The addition of the Natural Trim ribbon and the small rustic brad, from Vintage Trinkets, really set the tone.

I'm gonna miss those Vintage Trinkets since they are retiring on June 1st.  At last check, they are still available.
