Hello crafties!

How are you all doing? I hope you’re all safe and keeping positive during these crazy times!

Today we are starting the new challenge at The Male Room challenge and the theme is absolutely perfect for right now – Make Me Laugh is the theme for challenge #133.


We are so excited that Trina P is joining us for this fun challenge as a guest designer! Please stop by her blog and take a look at her card HERE.

For today’s card I have used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday that has a lot of punny sentiments – Tommy and Polly the tropical birds! The stamp set is so cute, birds are beautifully drawn and the sentiments are hilarious!

I kept the card design fairly simple and not too colorful to keep the masculine feel. For the background I decided to use Sizzix Textured Impressions Tropical Leaves. I thought this will add a lot to the background in texture without overpowering the focal point.

From the stamp set, I stamped the toucan and the leaves as well as the sentiment with black ink.

I colored to the images with alcohol markers then used coordinating dies to cut them out.

I adhered a strip of tropical foliage patterned paper under the sentiment strip the trimmed one side to a flag.

I adhered the images to the background, using liquid glue for the sentiment strip, and popped the toucan and the leaves with foam tape.

I just love the way this card turned out! It was pretty quick and simple to make and it think it will definitely put a smile on recipient’s face πŸ™‚
