Challenge #11 -Stash - Washi Tape

Good morning!  It's that time again - our new challenge at The Male Room is a stash challenge.  It's time to use all that wonderful Washi Tape that we have in our stash - be as creative as you like.  Just remember, your project must have a masculine feel.  You can make a card, scrapbook page, tag, 3D project - just use Washi!!!!

Before we move on to the inspiration cards, we have some news.  Sadly we have to say a fond farewell to Vicki as a member of the Design Team.  Vicki and her husband are off travelling, but we hope that she'll be able to play along with us from time to time.

Once again we are joined by Chris of Dot Dot Stamping as our Guest Designer.  We like to thank her for joining us this month.  Chris, Vicki and the rest of the team have some fun cards to share with you:

Theme: Birds (Challenge #09) - Winners

Good evening - I'm really late announcing the winners of our Birds Challenge - sorry!  It was a fun challenge and the thumbnail display looked super.  However, without further ado, here are our winners.


We really like the subtle background texture, the clean
and simple layout and the fab birds on a wire!

This one made us laugh!
Love the image and that sentiment
is just perfect!

Perfectly crisp, clean and simple
Just lovely.

Love the silhouette birds on a wire
and the sunset sky is stunning.

Thanks so much for playing along with us.  Congratulations to you all.  Don't forget to pick up your badges from the sidebar.

We'll be back tomorrow morning with a new challenge for you - it's a stash challenge.  Bye for now.

Theme: Letters and/or Numbers (Challenge #08) - Winners

Good morning!  We were delighted to see so many fabulous projects for our Challenge #08 - Letters and/or Numbers.  You were all very creative with the way you included letters, numbers or both in your projects.  It was tough for us to pick our favourites, but here are the winners.


We like the neutral colour palette, the stencilled numbers
and the bold black numbers with the sentiment.  
Great masculine card.

(in order of submission)

This is amazing.  
Love all the texture, the cogs, the propeller and the numbers on the top!  
Great to see a 3D project.

Super neutral colour scheme with a touch of gold from the sequins.
Love the way you've combined numbers and letters.

Super clean and simple design.
Love the ombre effect on the numbers and the little flourishes on the sentiment.

Congratulations to you all.  Please pick up your badges from our sidebar and display them on your blog.  Thank you to all those who played along with this challenge.

You still have plenty of time to join in with our current challenge to use Birds on your project.  Just remember that it has to be masculine in feel.

Have fun.
