Scrappy Wednesday: Masculine Card and Re-inking Your Ink Pad

The design of many stamps tend to lean towards the feminine audience so playing with this masculine stamp set was a fun adventure! And I love the way it turned out!


Scraps of Very Vanilla Cardstock are all I used for this card. Lots of stamping and no Designer Series Paper (although I LOVE DSP!). Basic Grey and Always Artichoke Classic Stampin' Ink distress the edges of each piece.


Three stamp sets were used for this card. The World Map Background, The Open Sea and the Something to Say Stamp Set for the sentiment.


For the inside I distressed the edges just like the front and I used the World Map Background stamp using the "stamp off" technique which just made it lighter so one can write on it.

To see the complete tutorial and all of the tools and supplies used have a watch at the short tutorial below! I'd love to see what you've made so stop by and visit me on my Crafters Anonymous by Candace's Canvases Facebook page, leave a picture and a comment!

Happy crafting all!!!
