Simply Stampin Challenge 44

There is another colour challenge over at Simply Stampin this week and although I don't have all the exact colours I did have the navy and vanilla (improvised with the rest).

The SU background paper was overstamped with two of the smaller stamps from the Sense of Time set - the clock and sentiment are from the same set.  The Top Note die was cut out in kraft card and trimmed along the 'dotted line' then stamped using SU white pigment ink and white embossed (French Text large stamp), another Top Note was cut from navy card to frame this.   Computer sentiment was cut using two circle punches.


  1. Oh I miss this stamp set, so great to see it used again, So glad you decided to join the challenge even though you didn't have the exact colours, thats what crafting as all about, improvising. I love the stamped background those cogs look great over your patterned paper!
    Thanks for joining us at Simply Stampin'.

  3. What a lovely card - perfect masculine design! I love all the little details like the background stamping, embossing, the layered Top Note and those brads! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Simply Stampin' this week and please do join us again very soon! Ruth x

  4. Great card Val - love the colours on this challenge. Looks really good the way you've overstamped the cogs and just love the clock.

  5. Hi love this a great Mans card. Really like the stamps. Hugs X ChrisB

  6. The white script stamping is super & I love the way you have framed it. Overstamping the paper makes it look really co-ordinated with your main image. Love the sentiment & your securing with those (?) brads.

  7. Hi Val .. I love this card .. such muted 'relaxed' colours. They are not colours I would normally use, so that is where the skill comes in ... You have pulled this off very well .. Keep warm Love Eileen xxx
