Hello and welcome to another Thursday Time out!

Now I dont know about you but I seem to have a terrible time to make cards for boys and men. Maybe it has something to do with being a mum to two girls or maybe I just like girly stuff – who knows – so imagine my surprise when these cards turned out as they did ….

I couldnt work out whether to use Early Espresso or So Saffron for the base card and since they were so easy I ended up whipping up both! They’d be perfect for any little boy who loves Cowboys!

Here’s the Early Espresso up close …


I love this Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper and Stampin’ Up! make it so easy with using their own colours in the Patterned Papers it makes designing cards so very easy when choosing a colour combination!  The greeting on this card comes from the very cute Just Sayin’ stamp set and the brads I’ve used on the stars are from the Vintage Trinkets.

Now for the Saffron …


Using the So Saffron for the base gives this card a much softer look.  The sentiment comes from the Label Love Stamp Set – I only wanted the words so I just used my Espresso Marker to ink them up and left the frame part out. The brads on this card are the Silver Mini Brads – love those things!

These make super quick and super easy cards and all you need is the Simply Stars, Retro Fresh DSP, some brads, Espresso Baker’s Twine and a sentiment set and you are good to go!
