Here’s what we’ll be making:
This elegant card uses the Leaflit Framelits. Simple card & so pretty!
Best Thoughts is a Hostess Set. We’ll do a little watercoloring with aquapainters. Cased this card from

I’m always running short on “Man Cards” and this one using The Open Sea is my favorite masculine stamp set! Thanks to
Stampin’ Georgia for the great idea!
When I saw this adorable card made by

It’s always a challenge to make “manly cards”. Last night I opened my new package of Moonlight DSP Stack (in the new catalog available June 2) and LOVED IT!! There are so many possibilities…the colors are beautiful and the patterns are modern and vintage-mixed. Here’s the first card I came up with:
The only DSP you can see is the stripe on the right side. Lost Lagoon (new In Color) is my new favorite color!! The ship from The Open Sea is embossed in white. This would make a nice birthday or Father’s Day card.
Stamps: The Open Sea
Colors: Crumb Cake (5 1/2 X 7 1/2), Lost Lagoon (3 X 5 1/4), Sahara Sand
Accessories: Moonlight DSP Stack (3/4 X 5 1/4), Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits, Natural Trim, Natural Composition Specialty DSP (retiring)
Love how the DSP is raised & shiny!

Thanks for looking! Cheryl
