SUO Challenges 81

Posted on

It was officially a Monday yesterday! I have given up all hope of catching up at work and I am just going to go with it. They can add much faster than I can subtract! LOL! The weather here yesterday was a little sunny in the morning and then it got gradually gloomier until it started raining around 5:00. I guess that’s the end of our glorious weather, and I was enjoying it so much! All good things must come to an end as they say. Did you have a good Monday? I hope so!

For today’s post I have my card for the SUO Challenges. This time around we are asked to make a masculine project. I know most people think dark browns or dark blues but I’m a guy and I like all sorts of colors! I went with the metal look and some bright blues.

The base of the card is Pacific Point Card Stock with a layer of Tempting Turquoise. I used a piece of the Silver Foil Sheets with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top of the background. All of the stamped images and greeting are from the Rev Up the Fun! Stamp Set and are stamped in Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise except for the tire tracks, they are stamped in Basic Gray. Some chevrons punched out with the Chevron Border Punch, again in Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise, give the card a little motion in front of and behind the race cars. I’m really glad that I got the Rev Up the Fun! set, I have used it a lot more than I thought I would! I’m also loving the bright blues with the SIlver Foil Sheets and they emboss really nicely. Thanks so much for taking some time to stop by and see my card for the SUO Challenges Design Team. I hope you’ll head on over to the blog to see the other designers cards and enter yours in the gallery. Have a great Tuesday everyone! 🙂

  1. Oh Yes this is a great card. That stamp set is great and the foil embossing is so realistic. Loved everything about it. Good Job! 🙂

  2. Great color combination, Justin! Love the foil background – and all those layers of card stock. A perfect answer to the SUO challenge!

  3. The foil sheets make the whole card just ‘pop’ Great! Luvin how you highlighted the chevron punch outs with the chevron folder.

  4. I absolutely love the use of the foil sheets! The color combo is fabulous and, being a NASCAR fan, the entire card was a delight. Great job Justin.

  5. Great card Justin. Did not think I would order that stamp set but after seeing the # 25 on the car…. I have to have it!!! (hint …. hint). Both my brother and I were born on a 25, He in May and me in…. (hint… hint) in October. (these hints are since you made such a gorgeous gorgeous card for your mom, born also in October, and you were born the day after my son…LOL I think probably the same year too!)
    Very masculine card. Love the combo of colors and that foil sheet!

  6. I love the color combo on this great masculine card. I’ve recently become interested in trying out a few challenges for myself, so seeing your submitted work helps inspire me!

  7. Another winner! And if we are sharing birthdays, mine is just around the corner, lol.
