I really like this new masculine set called Clean Lines: For the Guys stamps.  I love that there are options to stamp Papa (because that is what my kids call their grandpa!), Grampy, Pop, Dad, Brother, Grandpa, Husband, -in-law, Father & Uncle!  I mean seriously, how many stamp sets do you see with those options?  LOVE it!  For this card, I used most of the images in the set and lined them up on a block and stamped each row starting in a different spot each time.  I went back later and added the red needle on the fuel tank.

The two strips of paper on the bottom are from a FUN new paper line from Lil' Inker called Tribal Chic Paper Pack.  So many great pattern & color options in this pack! If you are a paper junky like me, you'll love it!  To create the tag I die cut one of the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag dies and stamped a pattern from the Tribal Chic stamp set on the top & bottom.  The sentiment is stamped from the Clean Lines: For the Guys stamps.  I die cut the wrench from the Clean Lines: For the Guys die set and then stamped the coordinating image & popped it up.

Jen Carter Thanks so much Tribal Front 3 wm

My last card today uses some more patterns from the Tribal Chic Paper Pack that I've adhered on top of a piece of white cardstock that I've embossed the new Cover Up Die: Tribal Chic into.  It gives the Cover Up Die a softer look.

Jen Carter Thanks so much Tribal Closeup 3

I die cut two of the Dual Stitched Triangle Dies and then used the Cover Up Die: Tribal Chic to die cut the pattern into them.  You can see the difference in this closeup between embossing with this die and die cutting with the die.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Label Sentiment set that I've embossed in white.
