Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge-- For the Guys!!

Good Morning and Welcome to the June Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge--- For The Guys!! It's the first Wednesday of the month  and time for a new challenge!! Last month we focused on Girls so this month... it's time to give the GUYS some love!!

SSCB#44 - My Guy! We're looking for masculine projects this month for guys of all ages for any occasion.  How about a special card for Dad for Father's Day, your son, or a special guy friend? Maybe there is an  image that captures a special memory? Fishing on the lake, playing a round of golf?  Just make sure you include at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your design.

Want to go shopping?  The Grill stamp is our 50% off Stamp of the Month!

Mary gave the DT an extra challenge - to add a little texture!

I am not the expert at "guy" cards but, I think the Winter Fenceline from Serendipity stamps is a great choice. For texture I sponged the background with distress inks and stamped the image with SU Early Espresso and then heat embossed with clear. I used the Cherry Lynn large square dies and stitched squares (did you know Serendipity sells Cherry Lynn dies.... Pretty Pink Posh too!!) For the green square border I used textured paper... you can see below how the dies "flattened" some of the paper on the border and left a textured border. As well the Serendipity Happy die was die cut with textured paper. I didn't finish off the inside.... could be a birthday or Father's Day card.... haven't decided yet!!

For more inspiration there are samples from the design team on the challenge blog or you can visit them directly and get all the details by clicking on their names below.

We're looking forward to seeing your designs.  Link them up on the original SSCB (Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog) #44  Click Here for all the details
