Bloggers Challenge 52 – “Manly” Theme

This week’s challenge was a "manly" theme.  For some reason some stampers find it difficult to make a card for a male.  Quite honestly most of my cards are geared towards females, so this was an interesting challenge for me.

This card features stamps from Artistic Outpost’s newest plate, "Hero."




  • Hero (Artistic Outpost)


  • Coredinations (textured)
  • River Rock


  • River Rock
  • Always Artichoke

  1. Fabulous “manly” card! I love the colors and the torn/distressed edges.

  2. You make this plate look good Anita! I love that you chose green, as did another player. The distressed/torn edges of your cs really set your focal image off. Great job on this challenge…

  3. I really admire this is manly and honorable.
    I wish we had some Canadian Military stamps.

  4. Fabulous card. I really need to go check out this stamp set.
