Tonya Davidson: YOU ARE HERE :)

        This Denim Days Background is perfect for masculine cards!! I know we all have some trouble coming up with new men's cards!!  I stamped the background using Denim Days True Color Fusion Ink Pad, layered onto Denim Days cardstock and cut a slit in the pocket to add some Birthday Cash! Birthday Wishes cut into a banner and faux stitching popped up, and the piece mounted to red card base finished off the card!

     My second card features the Falling Checks background. The first time I saw it, I thought of Minecraft ~ and I'm not sure why since I'm not very familiar with it at all. So I had to look up the icon to get its face down right. I think I got it pretty close!  I inked up the background in green and repeated stamping until no more ink transferred. I flipped the piece over and repeated the stamping process.  The sentiment, stamped in a white pigment ink, is from Simple Sentiments 2B
   So that's it for now!! Make sure and hop on over to Beth's Blog to keep the ideas coming your way! And don't forget to order before January 8th to save 15%!!!!
