Inkspirations Inspirations Challenge #14

The challenge on Makeesha's blog this week was an inspiration challenge with a masculine colour scheme. So this week I decided to make a masculine card. I don't have many stamp sets that I use for masculine cards so I pulled out the good old Circle Circus again.

I used versamark and clear embossing powder to emboss the Circle Circus images and the 'celebrate' sentiment in the centre. I didn't think this would photograph very well but having the flash on seems to have really picked up on the shine of the embossing, even if the rest of the card looks a bit washed out.

This is the inspiration image:

And here is my card:

Not sure if I am happy with this card. Lately I have barely found the time to do any stamping, so my goal this week is to get some cards and some scrapbook pages done. I also have some MDF letters to cover in scrapbooking papers - my gift to a friend who has just had a baby. So hopefully I will have some more to share next week if I stick to my goal!

Thanks for looking!



  1. I love it. Gorgeous use of colours and I love the embossing. You put my efforts to shame!!

    Lots of love,

  2. Thanks Dan! That's not true though - your cards and scrapbooking are fantastic! I'm feeling kind of stuck at the moment, thinking I needed to try some new styles.

  3. I joined a swap and that's kind of forced me to do some different things. Especially colours. Have a look on my site - I have some new-ish ones up!

    I keep losing motivation to do the challenges though!
