With Valentine's usually being all fru-fru and lacey, etc, I thought it would be fun to do a masculine manly card.  I used the a-la-carte single stamp BE MY VALENTINE for this card.  I stamped it in black ink on whisper white card stock, layered it onto News Print DSP, then onto real red card stock.  I put all these layers on a black card stock base and added a sheet of whisper white inside for the sentiment and note.  I used the very thin 1/8" black ribbon with the white edging to tie a simple knot.  LOVE IT.  And for just a little bling, I used my versamark pen and dabbled a bit on the heart then added black sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed it.  What do you think?  All the ladies at my workshop yesterday loved it.

Another masculine card is this one I made this past week for HSSCT53 Challenge:

Sorry the photo is fuzzy.  I used my phone instead of my camera to shoot it.  This is the FILLED WITH LOVE stamp set using old olive and real red ink, layered on black card stock.  I put the LOVE all "kittywampus" on the layer of Newsprint DSP which is also layered on black then the base white card stock.  I made a very simple knot with the BLACK SATIN RIBBON. 

Hope these gave you some inspiration to make your own masculine valentine's cards.  Won't you share them with me?

Keep stamping and smiling!!


  1. Wow! Both of these are fabulous! Great job!

  2. Jenny, I love your projects. Now I'm definitely going to have to purchase that heart. Thank you so much for participating in our HSS Challenge.

  3. I love both of your cards! I never thought about using the a la carte heart stamp for a masculine card but it looks manly in black. Beautiful job! Thanks so much for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

  4. Jenny, Great cards! I just placed an order and skipped the heart and now I'm regretting it. I LOVE it in the black. And isn't the Newsprint DSP the best?! Thank you for joining us at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.

  5. Jenny, I just love that Be My Valentine stamp in black ink. Perfect for a masculine Valentine. (I think you taked me into adding it to my order that I'm placing tomorrow, haha!) I really like how you used the Newsprint DSP on both cards, too. Thanks for joining in the fun at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week! :)
