Fresh Squeezed Stamps Day 2 of New Release Week!



Hello and Welcome to Day 2 of the Fresh Squeezed Stamps New Release Week!


Today we are featuring 



Oh that sentiment...the mix of fonts...LOVE that.  I used the chevron for the arrow tail.

I find masculine cards challenging so this is as masculine as they get for me:


I was being ultra brave with that stitching on the triangles...I can tell you that it took me forever to hand crank the wheel for that...oy!  I like to think it gives the card a whimsical look:)

Make sure that you pop over to the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog to see what some of the other gals created and for a chance to win!

  7. Fun cards for sure, Amy, love the stitching through all those pieces on the second one! I am never quite sure why women worry so much about masculine cards, but yours are fabulous for sure! A man should love you for what you are, not what you make. ( and vice versa) Have a wonderful Thursday.

  24. I think you rocked the masculine card with the grid paper and the triangles. You did stitching on the card, yet it still felt and looked very masculine. Well done!
