August is for the guys!


Hello and welcome to the Inspired by Stamping August release. This month we are focusing on all those special guys in your life! I don't know about you but I generally struggle with making masculine cards and have very few stamp sets that seem to fit this genre, but Joanna has out done herself this month offering up many versatile masculine designs you will love. I love them and had so much fun creating my projects! My card today uses the new Background Basics IV and Guy Sentiments. I love this happy birthday sentiment with the banner and cut out the hat that is also in the set to top it off. All the pattern paper is stamped using the new Background Basics IV set. LOVE those grid lines. I thought some silver brads and hemp twine would work nicely as a manly embellishment.

**TIP**
Did you know all the stamp sets have FREE Silhouette cut files for you on the IBS store? Find them with the coordinating stamp set.
