So here is the last in this style of card. It suits a more formal gent! I created the pin stripe look by drawing the stripes onto some basic grey card stock. The tie was created using some satin ribbon (retired) and I used DSP (retired) to make the shirt. It is very easy to substitute alternative paper and ribbon to create your own suited gent!

So having made the T Shirts - I wondered about other clothing related cards I could make. I love the By The Tide stamp set and it occurred to me you could make a Hawaiian style shirt using them! This one always makes me think of my brother - I really must send it to him one day!

I guess it's coming to that time of year when we start to think about making male themed cards. Father's day is always slightly strange for me - I lost my dad some time ago so I find myself designing and making cards which I can't send. In a way it is a little weird - but it also gives me time to pause and remember a very special person. I hope you like these ideas - they are a little bit different and quirky - a bit like my dad!.

Ok - so I haven't actually made these myself - but I couldn't resist showing you what I meant by ice-creams and cupcakes! For the first time Stampin Up are allowing us to use some of their pictures - so this is taken from the catalogue.

Ok so I have just a few more cards to show you today. I really fell in love with the "Every cloud has a silver lining - you just have to look up to see it" saying - so I got a bit cloud happy! I discovered that I love the effect of the colours on the black - but also just how effective it could be on white. I tried glossy accents on some and basic rhinestones on others - I hope you like the ideas - they were inspired by a range of cards that I have seen online - unfortunately I didn't keep a note of any names - so if you recognise any please let me know so I can credit you. I love the simplicity of the first - the bright sparkle of the second - but I think my favourite is the last! I just love those little flowers! Anyway - I do have more ideas for using the set as ice-creams, cupcakes and baskets of goodies - but I've not had time to finish those yet. I am working quite a bit this week and next - but hopefully I will still be able to show you something new in the next few days.

So where did that week go? I think I was having too much crafty fun with my friend who was staying for a few days. Still we did get to play with a new stamp set! Sprinkles of Life is very easy to miss as it is tucked away inside the back cover of the catalogue. It's a super cute, very versatile stamp set that can cover so many occasions - and better yet it has a matching punch that will cut the cloud/icing/ice-cream and tree - not to mention all the other accessories! This first card is one of my favourites - very simple!
