All Day Training Swaps

Today I am in Leeds for our Quarterly All Day Training Event
 with fellow team members of Julie's Jems in Pudsey.
The theme for our swap today is Male projects.
I have great difficulty coming up with cards for men, but here are my efforts.
Early Espresso. Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake - Gold Embossing
Sahara Sand and Early Espresso - Gold Embossing
Marina Mist and Midnight Muse - Pool Party Embossing

Midnight Muse and Marina Mist - Clear embossing on Midnight Muse ink
Basic Gray and Black - Silver Embossing

Basic Black and Basic Gray with Black Embossing
We had to do 30 swaps for this event, but as I have a low boredom threshold,
I made mine in different colour combos as labelled above.
The die is the Lattice Bigs die and the stamp set is Postage Due.
I relied mainly on the colours chosen and the postage stamp image to give a male feel to these.
Think that I have succeeded.


  1. You certainly have succeeded Kate, I like the different colour combinations, makes them far more interesting, ad makes the die cut stand out too. Love the postage stamp image x

  2. Fabulous cards for the men, love the different colour combinations.

  7. This are brilliant and very suitable for men! Men don't like all the fussy stuff on their cards like women do. These are lovely colour mixes and I love the stamps addition. Very great :-)
