Waltzingmouse Stamps April 2013 Release Blog Waltz

***This is my second post for today. For CASE Study Challenge 137, please scroll down.***

Hi there! Welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps April 2013 Release Blog Waltz! Yay! You've reached the final day of our April release! What do you think so far? Aren't the sets amazing?! I'm pleasantly surprised that for someone who has such a hard time with masculine cards and tends to shy away from it, I've found myself enjoying this release so much! I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am!

You should start the Waltz from the WMS Blog, Claire has the entire list of Blog Waltz participants. If you've found your way here from Jen's blog then you are right where you're supposed to be. If not, make sure you start from the beginning. As with all of our WMS Blog Waltzes, one lucky participant will have a chance to win a prize!!! Let's get started here.

First up is this super CAS card I made. Can you believe it?! ME?! Doing CAS?! :) I hope I'm doing this justice...seriously!!! Anyway, I just stamped a sentiment from Man of the Hour on a white card base. Then I stamped a border stamp from My Kind of Guy to flank each side of the sentiment. That's it! :)

Next up is another masculine card. This one I made using ALL of the 3 stamp sets we're releasing this month. I stamped the rectangular and circular frame from My Kind of Guy straight onto the kraft card base. Then I decorated it with the little circle embellishment from Nordic Baby.

I die cut a banner and used a white marker to outline and color it. Don't you just love it?! I was so happy with how it turned out! The sentiment is from Man of the Hour, which I heat embossed in white.

And finally, my last card for today, and YES, it's also a masculine card!!! I'm crossing my fingers here that you've found a lot of inspiration for your own masculine cards. This one is another CAS card. I just heat embossed the sentiment from Man of the Hour onto the charcoal cardstock strip and adhered it onto the kraft card base. Then I stamped the mustache image from My Kind of Guy above it.

I wonder what the CAS card goddesses think of my! I am absolutely floored as to how they make CAS cards look so finished and awesome! I really, really hope that I'm doing this style justice! Let me know! :)
