Manly Monday: Hi Love

Hello Love

When I see a tree I’m reminded of  a tall (everything is tall to me… I’m 5’1″) strong masculine figure.  When a tree is cut & prepared  to become wood for the production of furniture, a home, or beautiful ‘hardwood’ floors it remains sturdy and strong the way the men in my life are (I have five brothers, plus my dad and a husband).

For this reason I am so in love with the Hardwood stamp.  The possibilities are endless and in case you missed it, you can see my previous hardwood stamp card right here.  Even after it retires I will NEVER sell it as I do my other retired stamps that you can just happen to see right here.


This is a very Quick & Easy card to make too.  Let me explain how I did it.  First, I cut an 8-1/2′ x 11′ in whisper white card stock in half to give me a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2′ standard A2 size card.

Second, I stamped the entire card in Old Olive ink and then stamped three of the Banner Blast stamps on whispher white, and two with White Stazon.  I then punched them out with the banner punch, which you can no longer get for free, but I will be giving my stamp set and punch for free… keep reading to find out how.

Finally, I used glue dots to adhee the banner to the left over Baker’s Twine from a previous project.  It was that Quick and Easy![clear-line]
