Welcome to our November Blog Hop, where we are introducing our November Challenge (you can play along with us on Facebook!) and hopefully bringing you inspiration to create a Movember Madness card which features mustaches or a masculine theme! We are featuring a fun little Retro Masculine die set by Impression Obsession, but you can interpret the challenge however you wish…
We will be giving away prizes, of course- 3 of you who leave comments along the way of the hop will win one of the Retro Masculine die sets, and one lucky challenge participant will get a $50 gift certificate to spend in the SNS online store! Scrap ‘N Stamp will also be be donating 10% of net sales on hop Day to the Movember foundation in support of men’s health issues.
For my card, I’ve paired the Retro Masculine Dies with mugs from the ‘Thanks a Latte’ set by Lawn Fawn. I die cut the entire set and played around with placement of them to add some fun character to the mugs, which I colored with Copic Markers. I pulled a 6×6 pad out from my stash (perhaps you recognize this old fave, Mamarazzi, by BoBunny. It’s probably 7 years old!) and chose papers using inspiration from a recent card sketch I found online. I’ve switched things up a bit, but you can probably still see the design 😉 One of Tim’s SNARKY small talk sentiment stickers was a perfect fit to help me with my design… After a bit of playing around, I added some ribbon and moved a third mug to the inside of the card, then added a fun border of die cut shapes at the bottom of the card.
I love the personality the die cuts add to my mugs! As you can see, I added some Glossy Accents to the coffee. yum.
Inside the card, I added a strip of patterned paper & the smaller mug, which is from the mini Pumpkin Spice stamp set, also by Lawn Fawn. I can see the three mugs being used together to represent a family (with a mustache on just one, of course!). The sentiment is from the Thanks a Latte set. I love that there are so many options to mix & match between the two sets!
I had fun creating this card and making a card that is whimsical, snarky & masculine! The girls have put together some fun projects, I think you’re going to enjoy this hop! And remember, we’d love to see what you are making too! Please join us on the Challenge Page on Facebook and play along! Now that you’ve seen my card, it’s time to continue on and get hopping…
The hop starts here with Tara, then goes to
