And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

You're a Classic

Hello all...hope you've had a good week!  It's been rainy here and very busy, so not much stamping time or time for walks with Kody.  But today is Saturday...I don't have to work...and it's time for a new sketch at The Sweet Stop, so things are looking up!  We have a wonderful sketch for you this week with lots of layers.  Masculine cards are a little challenging for me, but we have a really good friend whose birthday is coming up this month, so I decided to go masculine with this sketch.

Creative Nugget:  I love this vintage truck from the "Timeless Classic" clear stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  It's perfect for masculine cards.  The Select White, Stormy Sky Core dinations, Bravo Burgundy, and Weekend Market DP by Bo Bunny papers were layered and stitched together following the sketch.  These were adhered to a Select White card base.  A PTI doily die was used to cut a piece of the DP for the circle layer.  It's hard to see because of the layers, but there's actually part of a world map on this panel.  The vintage truck was stamped in Memento ink, colored with Copics, and cut with a rectangle Nestie.  Stitching, button twine, and buttons were added to this layer.  The sentiment, which is really all on one line, was stamped and each word cut out to fit on the Stormy Sky tag.  These vintage papers just seemed perfect for this image.  I hope our friend likes it!

Now for a bit of good news...FOUR stampers who entered our design call will be contacted this week to join the Sugar Baby Team!  I can't wait to find out who you are!  Speaking of the Sugar Babies...they have some fabulous samples for you this week to get your creative juices flowing.  Sop by and leave a little love on their blogs, and as always, I can't wait to see how you use The Sweet Stop sketch this week.

I hope you've been inspired by my sample...Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!

This card is gorgeous, though that doesn't seem the right word for a masculine card, but it was my first thought!! I love the DP's and they match the image perfectly!!

This is fabulous, Cathy! "Timeless Classic" is one of my favorite sets for masculine cards. Your coloring of the truck image is fabulous.

There isn't a man alive who wouldn't appreciate getting a card like this for his birthday! That vintage truck is awesome the way you colored it, and the papers you chose perfectly compliment this image. I just love the stitching and button accents too! nj!
