JAI # 176 Just Add…Blokes!

August 1, 2013 at 10:35 pm 8 comments

I find, I make so many girly cards.  They are all pretty and flowery.  So this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge – Just Add Blokes was welcomed by me.
I put together a couple of Blokes cards – one of which I have already given away so can’t show it to you.   Here is the other one:

I used Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White. The stamp set is Clockworks which is a very versatile set. 

To see a whole heap of other cards/projects for Blokes visit Just Add Ink. 
Have a go at the Challenge and share your Bloke projects with us too.

I also decided to put together (case) a few cards I have seen lately that can be used for Boys/Men too.

The first is the Lego Card (cased from Vicki Hodgman).  There are many Lego cards out there but I really liked the layout that Vicki had used.  Here is my version.

Believe me…..that’s a whole lot of dots!!

Next up I decided to make and Angry Birds card.  There are heaps of these around at the moment too.  My sister Nadine made one recently that I really really liked – it’s so cute.  Here is my version:

I thought this was so cute.  I (excitedly) showed it to Sarah and she said…..”Nah, it’s not as good as Aunty Noo Noo’s”!     Ohh  lol!

So, while at work I was thinking about it ….. thinking – how can I change that card to make it “MINE” ……. this is what I came up with.

So I folded it a bit differently and used a rubber band to hold it closed.

Then when you remove the rubber band and open it up there is another little Angry Bird flying through the sky on the inside.  Ha Cute!!
I actually think my Angry Bird looks more like an Annoyed Bird……but you get the idea.
