Clearly iStamp Father's Day challenge

Oh, the season of the "Dreaded Man Card"....it gives me palpitations. Every year. It's not that I don't like what I end up making...it's just that I feel like I'm repeating my 3 good 'guy card' ideas over & over!
Clearly iStamp, the Clearly Digi Stamps blog, is having a Father's Day challenge that ends tomorrow. I have a whole bunch of their images that are perfect...I love these cars:


Supplies: car and striped paper from Clearly Digi Stamps; wheel patterned paper from Amy Tangerine; Wonky Rectangles & labels 5 Nesties; Wplus9 Banner die; AmyR Designs sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black ink

The wonky rectangle is layered with foam tape, and so is the car - I printed out 2 copies of the car, die-cut one, and fussy-cut the other to give some extra dimension. 

xoxo,
Jessi

I know how you feel, for a loooong time i had and used only 1 motorcycle stamp for my dad's father's day cards. There is only so many ways to stamp a motorcycle! But i have since gotten new 'guy friendly' stamps!! Your card is awesome! That is one awesome car!!

I agree guy cards are a little of a challenge. I find that they help me think out of the box and be creative in ways I hadn't thought of. Trust me I was dreading that I told my card class we would do 4 masculine cards this month....check it out http://dunnitagaindesigns.wordpress.com/2013/06/01/beware-masculine-overload/
Like you again I do like the results but it did push me creatively.
Did you get the free image we released today? If not get it soon only free for 3 days.
Thank you for playing with us at Clearly iStamp - Father's Day Challenge. Regular scheduled challenges will begin on June 21st with new and exciting stuff! Hope to see you there!!

Great man card!! They are not my favourite, either. So when I made my dad's father's day card, guess what I did? I sold it! Now I've got to make another and try to get it to NB by next weekend!
