PP554 CAS Masculine

Hi there, stampers!  Anne Marie is our hostess this week over at the Paper Players, and it's clean and simple week!  And this one is always a challenge for us gals....her theme is masculine!  They're just not as much fun to stamp for, are they?  But my nephew's birthday is coming up and he always comments on my cards, so it's nice to know they are appreciated!  So here's our prompt:

And here we go:


First, I used the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches:


I began by embossing a Very Vanilla card with a Stitched With Whimsy die, then added four cowboy-themed diecuts.  I sponged the hat and added some gold dots on the brim, and stamped a Paper Pumpkin sunshine on the star and added a brown sequin, also sponging it:




The boot was stamped with the coral stamp from A Little Smile Kit and sponged, and the horseshoe was sponged and I added some silver ink dots to it too.  The "hooray" is from YeeHaw, stamped in Cajun Craze and fussy cut:


I stamped a sentiment and some stars from the YeeHaw set on the inside.  You'll notice that I also used the Stitched With Whimsy die on the inside as well; that was because originally it was the OUTSIDE and I made a big smudge, so I covered up the smudge with a star and started all over!  The outside became the inside and hopefully no one will even think to ask why!


I hope you'll play along with our CAS masculine challenge this week!  Check out what the DT did over at the Paper Players blog, then share yours with us too!  You may be chosen as our Headliner!  See you there! Thanks for popping in, enjoy your day and be blessed!

Yeehaw! 🤠 What a great CAS cowboy card LeAnne! So many fun details yet perfectly clean and simple - and a great take on the CC&S sketch to boot!

You had a great way of rescuing that piece, LeAnne - why shouldn't the inside be as cute as the outside? Although you wrestled up a mighty fine collection of cowboy goodies, there, little Missy! Yee haw!

Clean and CUTE, LeAnne! These die cuts are adorable. I LOVE the large sentiment on the inside. It looks like it was planned to be there. Have a wonderful week!

Such a great guy card but for this cowgirl, I would love it too. I even have a belt with my name on the back. LOL. The stitching was a perfect touch!

LeAnne, I know I keep saying this.... BUT.... you are the most amazingly versatile card maker... you so effortlessly move between styles and this fabulous CAS creation is another example! You bring so much texture and color to this card - and yet it is still CAS and fabulously masculine! I bet he loved this!

These icons are brilliant and you are so clever to have put them all together like this! Gorgeous details too but without any frills - I really think this is a perfect masculine card! Thank you for coming to play at CAS Colours & Sketches! Vicky x

I love this layout using some smaller elements! The cowboy theme is a great one for masculine cards too and isn't it nice when the guys let us know they like the cards we give them?? Hope you have a fun weekend planned!

Look at you channeling your inner Texan! Lol! This is rootin' tootin' fabulous, LeAnne. The stitched frame is the perfect detail, too.
