If you haven’t seen one of my Paper Arts Live broadcast, you’re missing a great opportunity to laugh! Lord knows I can make some really good blunders. The funniest comment I’ve had was, “How do you stay so calm when things go so wrong?” I’d love to say I’m made that way but it probably has more to do with my Toastmaster’s training. Don’t forget to follow my Wild West Paper Arts Facebook Page to get notified.

I love the new Soft Sayings, all inclusive card kit! Here’s Holly from Stampin’ Up! to tell you all about it!
Today I’m taking part in an International Blog Highlights post with Kylie Bertucci from Australia. Fun, fun, fun! More on that later. The masculine theme is perfect for these cards created with retiring Urban Underground products. I’m so going to miss this suite!
If you’re thinking these look familiar, you’re not going crazy. I created two more with this card sketch a few weeks ago using different color pallets for Him and Her. Remember these?
When creating this design, I was going for versatility. Success! Do you have a favorite “Sketch” you turn to over and over? They’re so handy to have when creativity goes through a dry spell.
Here’s what you need to create your own masterpiece from this sketch. All measurements are U.S.
International Blog Highlights: Now for the “More” mentioned in paragraph one of this post. International Blog Highlights. Several Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from across the globe are participating in this challenge. Why? To give you all kinds of inspiration for masculine cards. If you’ve come here from Kylie’s blog you probably already know this.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. Our theme this month is Stepping Up with Textures or Techniques. What’s that? Projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
If you follow me you know I LOVE texture and I’ve been experimenting with techniques on my Paper Arts Live broadcasts. One of the first techniques I demonstrated is the Shaving Cream Technique. You may even recognize the background below. Yep! It was created that night and waited patiently for this blog hop.
Don’t Forget the envelope! It’s easy to emboss the flap to pull everything together and Stampin’ Up! envelopes are sturdy enough to take the pressure.
Now it’s time to see how the rest of the Pals played with this month’s theme “Stepping Up with Textures or Techniques”. Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
