Look No Stamping

What a scrummy morning it is so far today, such lovely bright sunshine and a bit warmer too. Always puts me in a good mood and it makes taking photos of cards a much easier task too!

So today I have a card for you with no stamping. I've used a combination of rub ons, accent stickers, punches and accessories instead. I've also made this project for a new to me challenge blog Embellish. Their theme for this challenge is a colour combo with a masculine theme. Here's my take:

I've used Bashful Blue card for my base teamed up with Real Red, Basic Gray and Pear Pizzaz. I've rounded off the corners, y'know just for a change and added a strip of gray card using the Spiral Border Punch to create my edge. Always find this punch handy on male cards as it lets me decorate without going girlie! Both the striped and scallop strips are accent stickers from the Celebration kit. I popped a jumbo eyelet in before sticking it down.

The sentiment and arrow are both rub ons from the Bday party set, conveniently next to each other too! Punched out with the Small Tag Punch and layered onto the Large Tag using Dimensionals. For a finishing touch I've added a Small Library Clip - again a nice masculine embellishment.

Zac is home again today, it's an inset day. Glad to have him home though as my Mum is in the country and we're going to pick here up later this afternoon, I can't wait! Mum is staying for a few days and is even going to be joining in my scrapbook class on Wednesday, how fab is that?

Right, I'd better go and check the kids haven't pulled all the wires out of the back of the telly for a change. I'll have to be quick one day and snap a photo of Blake in action at work with the wires and cables!

Don't forget today is the last day to join in with this month's scrapbook challenge
