Polly’s Paper Dream Team Announcement and Loads of Masculine Cards!

Polly's Paper Dream Team Blog BadgeHello, Friends!  What a great day you’ve chosen to visit!  Remember a few weeks ago when I told you that I would be designing for my good friend, Ginny Nemchak, owner of Polly’s Paper Etsy Shop?  Well, now I have another teammate!  Ginny is making the official announcement on her blog, Polly’s Paper Studio that the fabulous Sheila Rumney and I will both be playing with paper on Polly’s Paper Dream Team.  We’re all super excited about it!  Here’s a little blurb for you to read.

Polly's Paper Dream TeamYou’ll want to visit Ginny’s BLOG today, as she is doing a little giveaway to celebrate! And I know how much you all love giveaways!

I got busy yesterday afternoon with the new Masculine Variety Card Creativity Kit.  Before I knew it, I had made 8 fabby cards with this kit.  I’m telling you people, these creativity kits are like potato chips…you just can’t stop at one!  LOL  Here’s a peeky at the kit:

Masculine Variety Card Creativity Kit Polly's Paper EtsyThere is a load of fun to be had here…as you will see!

Dear Old Dad Masculine Creativity KitWith Father’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d make a little Father’s Day card.  Most of these supplies are from the kit.  I just added a little twine, a couple of brads, basic cardstock and some stamping.  The bows even come pre-tied!

Golf Card 01 Masculine Creativity KitGolfing is always a winning theme for masculine cards!  I did add the ribbon to this card…the kit comes with 4 pre-tied ribbons, and since I made 8 cards, I had to dig into my ribbon stash and use this great Midnight Waves ribbon.  It provided just the right amount of texture and contrast.

Golf Card 02 Mascuiline Creativity KitThis is a great birthday card for a golfer.  The only item I added here is the button!

Hunting Card Masculine Creativity KitI thought at first that these guys were carrying rifles and going hunting!  But no, they are golfing, too!  I love the mix of papers that Ginny puts in these kits.  I added a few brads, some natural burlap string and a little stitching here.

Airplane Card Masculine Creative KitI love the colors in this card, and I think I actually had this book when I was growing up.  It belonged to my brothers, and it was all dogeared.  So how fun to find the image in the kit!

Sailboat Card 02 Masculine Creativity KitIf your fella loves the water, this peaceful sailboat get well card is a great option.  I did add ribbon here…my new ribbon crush, Canvas Color Band Ribbon in Parrot Green.

Sailboat Card 01 Masculine Creativity KitAnother beautiful nautical image graces the front of this birthday card.

Men on Moon Masculine Creativity KitAnd, I saved my favorite for last!  This trio of Dapper Dans riding a moonbeam sailboat…well that just makes me grin from ear to ear!  I did add some brads and a paper clip…but everything else came in the kit.

Phew!  That’s a whole lotta masculine cards!  You can see why I jumped at the chance to be on Polly’s Paper Dream Team, can’t you?

If you’re interested in any of these cards, you can find them in my ETSY shop.  If you’d like to purchase your own creativity kit, you can find one HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
