More Masculine Cards plus a Sneak Peek

Monday was Hubby's birthday and here are come of the birthday cards he received.  This is the one I made him 

Have you spotted the sneak peek?  - What about those mini balloons and candles?  Yep, they're part of a new mini punch pack that will come out in the new Occasions catalogue in January, and yes as you can see they have a co-ordinating stamp set. 

Our mini punch packs come in sets of 3 - there are two here, the balloons and the candles but that means there's one more in the set.  To find out what the third punch is, make sure you keep your eye out for details of the new Occasions Catalogue coming out in January - its a fabulous catalogue with so many fantastic things coming.

This is the inside of the card using another sneek peek - isn't that a great sentiment?

The next card here was made for him by my Mum using Gorgeous Grunge in Lost Lagoon, Very Vanilla (my photo looks white) and Basic Black

And finally the card that his Mum made for him.  Whilst not all Stampin' Up! it was still handmade with love and that's what counts. 

If you'd like to make a card similar to this one, I recommend the Gift from the Garden stamp set (click on the link to see) which includes gardening gloves and a trowel plus a watering can, some gumboots and a couple of sentiments too.

Have you noticed yet that my husband doesn't like a lot of colour?  Any shade of black will do, sometimes blue, brown or green depending on the shade.  We've all three of us made him cards in colours we know he'll like.  The Go Wild DSP stack I used in my card had the perfect colour combination for him (and I suspect a lot of other guys too) - Basic Black, Tip Top Taupe and Whisper White.
