As you know yesterday I was on a mission to make some ‘male’ themed cards and so after making yesterdays “So Autumn” card I pulled out my Inspired by Nature set as the grass stamp in this set is so good for ‘male’ cards.  I also pulled out Baja Breeze & Not Quite Navy inks and cardstock cos well blue tones are boy tones right?

This is what I came up with …

[singlepic id=1144 w=320 h=240 float=center]

Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Occasional Quotes
Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Inks: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Large oval punch, Stampin’ Sponges

So what’s the verdict?  is it male? female? or is it both?

This is another one of those ‘multi use’ cards that if you changed the sentiment it could be used for any occasion.

I did create a few more cards with my Inspired by Nature yesterday so stay tuned as I’ll be showing them on my blog over the next few days. Inspired by Nature is a great set for any occasion and I’m happy to have it continue in the new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue and I really should use it more!

Hope you have a great Saturday despite the rain – but we do need it. If you are in one of the areas thats been affected by flooding then please stay safe.

Now if you happen to pray please pray for those in New Zealand who have been affected by that Earthquake early this morning.  Praying all my New Zealand friends are safe.


  1. I love this card too! Mmmmm, maaaybe a little more female but yes, as someone else said, perhaps using grasses or like, alone, might be a bit more masculine? Yet, you could still probably use it for a guy – perhaps it’s the tone of the blue – a little darker might be better for a man?

  2. Hi Onie,
    Love it!
    But I would say it’s a female card,
    Flowers and usually say girly?!
    But maybe if you just use the grass alone it maybe more masculine??

  3. I can see the masculine vibe but I am thinking female card….if that makes sense?? I love this set and have recently aquired it….so I very much look fwd to seeing what you have come up with. I love the way that you have made 2 colours have so much depth. Genius.
