OWH MWT & TT – masculine cards using a 6×6 pad

Hey all!
This week’s tutorial at OWH was how to use a 6×6 pad and use it all up. Yes, yes, count me among the crafters that have a nice sized stack of pads in a drawer! For the record, I no longer buy 12×12 pads. I’ve transferred my addiction to the smaller pads (progress, maybe?). I try to use them up but the truth is I go back and forth between different pads so it’s hard to do.

I decided to use up this MME all spice pad because a) it’s fairly masculine colors/patterns – yesterday’s challenge was to make masculine cards – and b) it’s one of my least favorites. Sad but true! The designs are nice but they don’t speak to me like some other collections. They still made really nice masculine AND feminine cards, though, I think.

First I pulled out ALL of the papers so I could flip them around and see which patterns looked good together. Then I started looking at the sketches (this is a treasure trove, people! Go download it!)

I started out with sketch 68.ย 
sentiment – Unity Stamp Co

Then 20.
Sentiment: Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday (I blended 2 different sentiment stamps)

Thenย 15.
Sentiment: Paper Smooches

Then 47.
Sentiment: Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday

Then 8.
Sentiment: paper smooches

That was fun!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I still have a pile of smaller scraps to use up. I’ll get to those later tonight.ย 

We got to go to meet my daughter’s new 1st grade teacher last night. She is really kind and caring, and I think we are going to have a great year! My daughter is excited because they get small lockers, not cubbies or hooks, for their stuff. Nothing says ‘big kid’ like a locker. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for visiting me today!

  1. Jen, nice job with all of those masculine cards and using up all of those papers. I did that a little bit today also with an old SU pad. I had to stop for a while to take a break from the craft desk (hurts my back if I sit there too long) but hope to continue tomorrow. Have a great night.

  2. I love, love, love this technique! For me, it makes me feel so damn creative when it was really the paper doing all the work! I like your set and the colors fit both your goals. Way to go…

  3. Wonderful collection of cards you got from that pad! I get the paper blues with some of my stacks too sometimes, but you can't tell from any of these that you weren't too keen on them. Great job and TFS!
