Challenge 334 – Nut Birthday

Today I have a masculine card for you. The added theme this week at Try Stampin on Tuesday was to make a masculine card. So I did. The great part about this card is that to make the nuts it is simply a hexagon with a circle cut out the middle. I decided that I could fit 4 hexagons instead of just 3. Mix it up and have fun with the sketch.

Challenge 328 – One in a Melon

It time for another Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge. The optional theme was summer fun and what is more summer then watermelons. This week I wanted to try something new to me. I went with some spot light coloring. I colored the images in with my Distress Oxides. You cant see it but there is some wink of stella on the watermelon as well.
