May ICS Blog Hop – It’s a Guy Thing in Black and White
I trust you are all doing well on this fine day! It’s cloudy here in Whitefish, but it’s a fine day anyway…why? Because I am alive, healthy and crafting! WooHoo! Can’t ask for more than that… 😉
Today we get to hop along with the talented ladies of the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! Our theme this month is a Masculine card using Black and White ONLY. If you are coming from Tricia’s blog, thank you for hopping on to mine!
This was a tad tough! I love color! Masculine cards tend to be tough and then just black and white…well…it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do.
I did it! And, I am happy with it! Here it is…
I am actually pretty happy with it! For the background, I stamped off on scratch paper 2 times before stamping on the Whisper White cardstock so that it was much lighter than my smoker. I probably could have done it one more time, but I think it turned out alright. Totally sad that this stamp set, Outdoor Barbecue, is retiring though! I really thought it would make it into the New Annual Catalog that is coming in June. But, alas, it is not…so, if you really like this stamp set…you better go HERE NOW and get it and then come back and hop around!! 🙂
Now it is time to hop on over to see what Candy Ford created for her Male Black and White project!

Love is in the air…and food flying every where! That is love! What guy wouldn’t like that?! Great card!
Thank you! Haha…never thought of the food flying around! Funny!
Cute! Love the barbeque food stamped background!
I love this card. I know the Grill master in my husband would be happy to receive this card. I’m thinking I might need to purchase this stamp set.
It’s definitely a keeper stamp set for me! Especially in my scrapbooking stash! All grill masters will love it! And since my hubby got a smoker last year for his bday…this looks just like it…it’s perfect for him!
Really FUN card!
