WWC95 - Libby's Masculine Challenge

Libby challenged us to make a masculine card. I have a confession. Last week I didn't read the challenge just glanced at the picture and saw it only as a coffee/tea challenge. Oops! I was happy when I realized the card I made would work for this challenge! 
I used the stamps Timeless Textures and Endless Birthday Wishes
I used Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso and Dapper Denim. I used the Layering Oval Framelits.

WWC94 - Heidi's Simply Stamping Challenge

 "Simply Stamping" is a return to basics.  We expect either one single stamped layer or a base with one single layer on that.  We expect simple stamping.  You can use masking, heat embossing, stencilling, sponging.  You cannot use an embossing folder or embellishments or additional layers (not even a tag). 


I failed to read our own guideline when I first made a card for this challenge and had to go back to the drawing board. This time I made a very simple CAS card. 
I don't drink coffee or tea so I haven't collected any of those type stamps so this was hard because of lack of stamps, however Touches of Texture does have coffee rings and I did use Early Espresso CS and ink. I also used Sheltering Tree and Dapper Denim 

In all honesty the train needed at least one more color but if I had added one it wouldn't fit the challenge ;).
