http://www.shonasstampingstage.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot. This is a hop featuring all types of masculine cards and we hope you will hop to all of the blogs and enjoy all of the team's cards. I have two cards for you today featuring fun baseball players. The first card is very simple. I colored the baseball player with Copic Markers and used the Grand Calibur from Spellbinders Paper Arts to cut out the image with the diamond shaped dies. I then used sticky paper and cut out a larger diamond and two smaler diamonds. I peeled off the layer of paper exposing the adhesive, stuck on the image, and then sprinkled on detail silver embossing powder to the exposed edges which I heat embossed. This is such an easy way to apply the powder. I then attached these silver embossed pieces to red cardstock which was layered to a black card that was cut in an A2 size.

I can see using this on cattails, wheat, and many more fall items. Whoever the grand prize winner is, I hope you will send me a copy of your card when you use the amber wheat.
