CTMH Quick and Easy Masculine Cards

December 08, 2014

Welcome to my new followers and I hope that I inspire you with my creative endeavours.

Today I am taking a break from Christmas ideas and thought I would show you some very quick and easy cards using the Seaside papers, the Seaside Greetings  and the Treasure Friendship stamp set.  I love the understated colours of the Seaside papers and the rustic maritime feel to the papers and how the stamp sets coordinate so perfectly with the papers.

My first card was extremely quick and easy to do.  I just used a combination of the papers – the rustic stripe and the knot paper and then a strip of the blue spots,and then just added the square durable studs and a birthday greeting in Desert Sand ink.   The knot paper looks like a rope when using a thin strip on each end of a strip of coordinating paper.   How simple is that and I am sure any man would love to get this card!CTMH Quick and easy Seaside masculine card

My next card was another one based on my favourite pattern from Make if From Your Heart Volume 2 pattern 28.  This time I have used the blue spotted paper and for the centre strip I have used the Glacier coloured Whimsy Paper Fundamentals paper – which is a shiny and stunning patterned paper and it coordinated well with the green Pear cardstock and the stripped paper strip with the Teal shimmer trim.

CTMH Seaside and Paper Fundamentals cardMy final card I looked at doing a similar card to what I had done earlier in the year here, but this time stretching myself to use the Sorbet colour instead of the usual greens and blues.  I stamped the shells with Sorbet and Desert Sand inks and fussy cut them out and placed them on the lovely marine paper background.  Again I have used the same Paper Fundamentals paper for the top part and then placed the orange zip strip across.  I stamped the sentiment in Sorbet ink on Colonial White cardstock and then matted with Glacier and Sorbet cardstock.  I think the colours work really well together and it is good for me to challenge myself to work different colours and combinations.

CTMH Seaside seashells cardI must admit Close to My Heart make it so easy to mix and match totally different colours with their Reflections range so don’t be afraid to experiment.
