Two chances to win, how awesome is that?!! All you need to do is create a masculine birthday card and link it up to our gallery to be in with a chance to win.

The reason for this type of card may be sad, but how wonderful to have one with men in mind. Great use of die cuts against that splattered background.


We loved the crisp clean look of this card and the attention to detail tight down to the green baize background. Awesome use of die cuts!

Winners Challenge #138 Sketch

Hello everyone!

It's time to announce the winners for our Sketch challenge. Such awesome use of the sketch, it's amazing how every one looked so different although they were all inspired by the same starting point. Thanks so much to everyone who linked up.

Here's our picks:

Winner


The most perfect masculine card! We loved the torn layers, the stamping that overlapped them, the die cuts and the awesome placement of all the images and details. A true masterpiece and a very worthy winner!

Congratulations Sona! 

Please grab your winner's badge from the side bar and contact Jane to find out about a Guest Design spot - themaleroomcraftchallenge@gmail.com

Here are our Honourable Mentions:
 (in order of submission)


This was exactly what I saw when I first looked at the sketch - Santa's belt of course! We loved the clean simplicity and maximum impact of this card.


Isn't this card just the most amazing use of stamps, embossing and colours? We loved the text background strip and think this would be the perfect card for a fella that loves fishing.


Tenia always delights us with her way of thinking outside of the box and the inclusion of washi tape in her projects. This card is a perfect example and we loved her interpretation of the sketch.

Congratulations to you all.

Pleas grab our Honourable Mention badge to display on your blogs.


Just before I go here's a reminder about our current challenge #139 Use Die Cuts.

Challenge #139 - Use Die Cuts

Hello and welcome to the last fortnightly challenge here at The Male Room. But don't panic we're not closing down.

From July we will be changing to a monthly challenge.  So you'll have even more time to get crafty and link up your awesome masculine projects.

But for now you've still got only two weeks to get linked up to this new challenge.


Now that's got to be a bit of a gift of a theme don't you think?

We're welcoming Janet Swanlady as our Guest Designer for this challenge and her card will just blow you away.


Isn't that the most perfect set of dies for a masculine card? I hope you'll find time to pop over to her blog and tell her just how clever she is!

And what have the multi talented DT been up to with dies? You're so going to love their creations.



Crafty Linby
This is Linby's last gig here at The Male Room. I know you will all be just as sad to see her leave as I am. Thanks for all your amazing creativity, help and support Lynn. Good luck for whatever the future brings your way.
