TMR - New Beginnings ...

....  Good morning!  I hope you all had a super Christmas and New Year and are ready to get back to making cards for the men in our lives!  It's time for our first challenge of 2015 at The Male Room - for the next couple of weeks we'd like to see your projects with the theme of New Beginnings.  Here's my take:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Holiday Home; Uniko Studios - All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Homemade Holiday Framelits
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Real Red


Our theme of New Beginnings gives huge scope - new baby, new home, new school, new year, new adventures - it's your choice.  I decided to make a card for a new home.  I kept it really simple with a row of houses stamped in black and one stamped on red card and die cut.  To finish the front I simply added a sentiment.  On the inside I cut a mat of red card and a very bold sentiment on the white card.  Now, this card uses several items that have never been used before (although I've had them for a few months) - the Holiday Home stamps and the matching framelits and so I'm submitting this card to Darnell's Never Before Used Schtuff - NBUS#3.  Can you believe she's on her third challenge?

For more inspiration with our theme of New Beginnings - check out the blog to see what the rest of the team have made.  Just remember you need to have a masculine feel to your project - looking forward to seeing what you make!  Have fun.

I could eat this with a spoon, Deborah! It is a CAS masterpiece and perfect for a man, outside and in! I shall go climb Mt. NBUS (full of NEW things!) and see what I can excavate for the male species! Thank you so much for your kind words, my friend, and thank you for entering my NBUS Challenge #3 again! Hugs, Darnell

I love this idea. I have been needing a card like this for my DD who just moved out - will see if I can do something similar with stamps on hand.
