Stamp Off Nailed It Masculine Challenge

Welcome, Welcome!  I'm so glad you've joined
Buffy, Susan and myself for another Friday Challenge.
This week, we are doing a Masculine challenge.
The Occasions Catalog is absolutely packed with
masculine products, so I'm ticked with the options.

I've seen a number of on line samples, pairing the 
Nailed It bundle (including Build It Framelits Dies
on page 48 of the Occasions catalog) with texture sets from the main catalog.
In this example, I used Timeless Textures on page 120
and Gorgeous Grunge on page 123.  The background 
pattern comes from the Urban Underground Specialty
DSP on page 47 of the Occasions catalog.  This is a
great masculine paper pack!
I wanted to create this specific statement, so I pulled out
my Labeler Alphabet on page 156.  I like the two,
easy to use photopolymer fonts,
and having the ability to communicate "touching"
  sentiments to my relatives.

I appreciate your visit to my blog, and
know that you will enjoy the wonderful samples,
  offered by Buffy and Susan!

Tasty Trucks Cupcakes

Just a couple more weeks before FREE SAB products
are gone for the year.  Tasty Trucks, on page 12, is a particular
favorite of mine, since food trucks are all the rage.
It is also great fun to color this truck, with the new
SU Watercolor pencils.
They are starting to advertise spring truck events
here in Ohio.  Now, we just need spring to get here!

Hammer it Open!

I've been playing with the Nailed It set and coordinating
Build It Framelit Dies (p 48 of the Occasions Mini).  
Good stuff and lots of fun!
The tools are definitely a great option for masculine cards.
In this example, I paired this bundle with the Balloon
Adventures and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies on page 5.
This made for a quick card, that will work for a 
birthday or special occasion, including giving of
a gift card.
