Sweet stop Saturday with a spin

Hope you are having a nice weekend so far. Today I have 2 cards to show you for the Sweet Stop weekly Saturday sketch. This week is our special week at the sweet stop in that this week's sketch also has a spin to it. This week's spin is to make your card masculine too. Oh and did I mention that there is a stamp set up for grabs if you decide to play along with us this week? Korin will be giving away a Cool Dude stamp set to a random participant in this week's challenge. I used this set for one of my cards today and I used it on yesterday's Father's day card for my dad too. It is a great guy set to have so I hope you will decide to play along this week. Below is the sketch and my samples to get you started.

I stamped a bg for my image panel with the hat stamp from Sweet N Sassy stamps Cool Dude set (this week's prize). I then stamped my hat and colored it with copics, cut it out and popped it up. I sewed on all my layers to represent the sewing on the baseballs on my dp. The awesome red bg layer is red pepper columns paper from Paper Temptress which has embossed stripes on it. I just love it!! No need to pull out the cuttlebug folders for it and it comes in other colors too.

Inside of card:

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Cool dude set and birthday greetings set
CS- Paper Temptress red pepper columns and heavenly ultrasmooth white, SU basic grey, baseball dp
accessories- pewter hardware, copics (R46, R39, C1, C3, C5), sewing machine

Here is my second sample which is also for the Christian Papercrafts magazine bible verse challenge this week. Korin is on a roll with the spins this week because this week's bible challenge has a color challenge spin of black, tan, and teal.

I used some cool papers from Paper Temptress for this card- teal grandee felt, black leather, ivory suede.

stamp- Sweet N Sassy stamps Pray without Ceasing
CS- Paper Temptress ivory suede, black leather, teal grandee
accessories- twine, button

Here is the LINK to this week's challenge for you where you will find the challenge info and some more great samples from the Sweet N Sassy stamps Sr. DT members.

Have a great day!

These are both wonderful, Janette! The stitching on the baseball card is such a great touch, and I love all the textured papers on your Scripture card!
