Stampin' Up! Australia - The Artful Stampers Blog Hop #21


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop!

I seriously lost my creative mojo this weekend (I blame the low pressure system/Cyclone Marcia), so the best I could come up with was this card:

It's actually not as bad as I thought it would be....on reflection, it has a modern, masculine feel to it. I absolutely LOVE the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack - such great patterns for bold cards for men. I also broke out the Bow Builder Punch which has been woefully neglected on my table for a few weeks. You can create a cute bow like this in about 5 seconds. All you need are some Glue Dots, a piece of patterned paper and the Bow Builder Punch. #adorable 

Here were our colours:

Here was my sketch (Freshly Made Sketches):

Here was my theme (Seize the Birthday):
