Woodgrain Birthday

There are lots of January birthdays in my family so I'm having a busy couple of weeks getting them all made. It's giving me a chance to use some of the stamps I received for Christmas too, so I'm having a great time!

This one is based on the sketch over at Hand Stamped Sentiments

I stamped my grunge background stamp onto some tissue paper for the background layer, then used my new SU woodgrain stamp for the next layer which I gently distressed.  The small polka dots were stamped onto tissue paper so that the wood pattern can still be seen through.  I keep all sorts of bits of ribbon in my stash and (mostly) have no idea where it all comes from - I thought this blue one provided a nice pop of colour.  I chose to stamp the sentiment in a matching blue, this final layer is raised up from the card with some sticky pads.


  1. Very Nice!!! Love all the great backgrounds- perfect for a man!!! Love the pop of blue- just the right touch!!! Thanks for playing along with Hand Stamped Sentiments, Diane

  2. So pretty, can I say that about a masculine card? I love all the interesting layers and soft patterns. The tissue paper is a very clever addition! Thanks so much for playing at HSS! Erika

  3. Very nice masculine card! It's kind of grungy and I like that! The blue really pops! Thanks for playing at HSS!

  4. Great masculine card, my weakness. Love the blue/gray combo. Thanks for playing with HSS.


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate every single one!
