Challenge #61 - Stash

Hello and Good Morning! Our new challenge here at The Male Room - TMR#61 is a stash challenge. We want you to use your DIE CUTS on your masculine projects. There are lots of different techniques to using die cuts - you can you them just as they come out of the die, or you can use the dies in a variety of creative ways - it's up to you the technique you use, but make sure we can see how the die cuts have been used. If it's not obvious - tell us!!!

Here are some inspiration projects from the Design Team:

Oops, I did it again! Not as late as last time, but still late! So sorry. You guys had such fun with our MANY LEGS theme and your projects were all just fantastic. So, let's get straight to details of our winners:


While not everyone's cup of tea, this card of colourful bugs has so, so many legs.
All those different bugs, such great colours and a simple sentiment.
Brilliant work!

(in order of submission)

Another card with many, many legs - love all the farm animals.
The bold red and the die cuts. Fantastic card.

Quite CAS and so very funny. For some reason, my husband wasn't convinced!!
Very clever!

This elegant man would be very welcome at my house! 
Another card with many legs and such a clever play on words!

Congratulations to you all - these were fabulous. Do pick up your badges from the side bar and display them on your blogs.

Winners - Challenge#58 - Theme

Hello all! I'm so very sorry to be so late with the winners post. I have to admit that I was so busy last week, I completely forgot. I've visited all those submitting entries for our Architecture challenge and you amaze me with your creativity. Anyway, I'd better get on with announcing the winners:


We love the way the skyline stands out against the fabulous sky and the die cut hello!
Great take on the challenge.

(in order of submission)

#7 - Poli

Classical architecture with a Roman column - simply super!

Such a great idea to make a card based on house plans and a tiny key too.
We love the sentiment.

An elegant take on the challenge with lovely design paper and super die cuts.

A very clever use of embossed brick wall - with graffiti text. 

Congratulations to you all. Please pick up your badges from the sidebar and display them on your blogs. And once again, sorry to be so late posting the results.

Before I go - a quick reminder that you still have time to play along with our current challenge to feature MANY LEGS - TMR#59 on your masculine projects. You have until midnight (BST) Tuesday 9th May (7.00pm EDT) to enter. Good luck.
