In recognition of these masculine stamps we are holding DUAL CHALLENGES all month long. As a participant in our challenges you can choose to create a project using the current challenge theme as it is written or take it a step further (like our Design Team did) and use the challenge theme to create a masculine project, or you can even choose to enter two projects, one for the regular challenge and one for the challenge with a masculine twist.

Our Dual Challenge Design Team Reveal


Beth (one of our Executive Team members) was inspired to participate in the dual challenge this month and used the inspiration photograph to create this "Grandpa" card that features stamps by our Design Team sponsor, Tradefish Designs. About this card, Beth said, "I chose to basically ignore the Anniversary or Wedding restriction of our challenge this week, in order to create a masculine card because... I just had to use this week's gorgeous photo as inspiration for a Father's Day card that I planned for my grandson Jack to give to his grandfather. Beth went on to say, " I hope our participants in the challenges this month take advantage of our dual challenges for each week and feel free to step outside the box to create masculine projects using our themes for inspiration".


This week Jan made an anniversary card for her husband. The card is simple, but elegant. She found the PERFECT sentiment from Tradefish Designs. Instructions for this very easy card are on her blog - stop by and say hello.


Kim created a card for a wedding celebration or an anniversary. Kim framed the sentiment from the "Missing You" stamp set provided by Tradefish Designs and layered it onto a pleated ribbon. Perfect for a June wedding! Be sure to stop by Kim's blog for a list of supplies and to say hello.


Tracy has created a very simple anniversary card using the photo inspiration colors for this week. She has used embossing and machine stitching to add texture to the card and a pretty chalked heart doily as a backdrop for the shimmery yellow flower. Her sentiment is from the Missing You stamp set from Tradefish Designs.


Regan thought this challenge might be a little difficult but she put this card together pretty quick! She used the colors from the photo as her inspiration. What a great card for the groom or father of the bride; it would even work as an anniversary card. For more photos and details, please visit her blog Emora Designs.
