Masculine Monday: Robotic

For today’s masculine card, I decided to be a kid at heart and create something for a younger male!  It seems like I never have any birthday cards for boys on hand, so maybe this will be the start of a little stash for me!

Stamps:  Hero Arts (Robot Trio), Amuse (Chevrons), Paper Trey (Birthday Basics)
Paper:  Paper Trey cardstock (white), SU cardstock (Brushed Silver)
Ink:  StazOn (Black), Encore (Silver)
Accessories:   blue glitter glue, clear gemstone, blue star gemstones, foam dots

I came across a little trio of robot stamps while searching through my stash and realized they had never experienced a dip in any kind of ink, so thought I’d let one of them cross that off his bucket list!  I wanted the little robot to be a little shiny, so stamped him on some of Stampin’ Up!’s Brushed Silver cardstock and cut him out.  I added a tiny little gemstone to the top of his antenna.  I stamped the single line of chevron using silver ink and then added the sentiment in black.  I popped up the robot with foam dots after the blue glitter glue had dried.  The stars I added just for fun!  Now I just have to wait for a little boy to have a birthday!


Cheryl over at the A.R.T. Card Challenge gave me a heads up to enter this in their current masculine card challenge, so I’m linking this up!  I love discovering new challenges out there in the virtual world!

The weekend proved to be a fairly relaxing one despite deciding to clean out one half of our unfinished basement.  DH’s parents are coming for a couple nights later in the week and my father-in-love enjoys helping with home projects!  We figured we’d better have a plan and something for him to work on!  He’s a big help and great motivation for DH!  I can’t wait to see what they get done!

Have a marvelous Monday!
