Masculine CAS for Inspired by Stamping

Welcome back! Over at Inspired by Stamping we are concentrating on CAS Masculine cards today.

Here is my card -

I have created a nice little seaside scene by masking and sponging inks.

Firstly, I added my post it note to mask the top of my card where the sky would be. I started sponging with Memento Summer Sky and then added Danube Blue for extra depth.

The grass was created with Memento Bamboo leaves. I didn't mask off where the grass and sea met. I just took care and made sure that my lightest colours were towards the middle of the card.

I removed my post it note and used the same blues for my sky.

I have used the new release stamps - Tropical Paradise which have been inspired by my home state of Queensland.

This is the perfect card for any man! I decided that I would place a sentiment on the inside of my card when the time comes to send this one off. I also didn't want to distract from my seaside scene.

Thanks so much for stopping by today


  1. Beautiful scene! Love your stunning inking.

  2. Gorgeous inking on this beautiful card.

  3. Your sponging is amazing, Kylie! I love the serene color palette and how beautifully the elements pop on this card! Looks just like a place I would like to be right now, especially since I'm dealing with 7 more inches of snow and 20 degree weather outside..yikes!

  4. Really beautiful and peaceful scene you've create, Kylie! Perfect masculine card. Loll xx
