Masculine card + stamp storage

OWH is challenging us to make masculine cards for the Midweek throwdown this week.  I bought the Tim Holtz Hot Air balloon stamp at a stamp show and decided to use it for my card:
I colored the balloon with Crushed Olive distress ink and edged it with Vintage Photo.
I've been busy organizing my stamps into Avery Elle storage pockets - just like Jennifer McGuire did here.  It's been good to get them labeled and see stamps that I haven't used in a while.  I put them in a box I bought at Michael's:
Because the storage pockets are thin, I can fit a lot of stamps into one box.  I am enjoying the Brother label maker that I bought too - I find that I'm labeling everything all over my house!  (How did I live without one of these?)
Happy Thursday to you and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great masculine card! Congrats on the organization too!

  2. There are so many terrific details in your card -- the placement of the sentiment, the rounded edges, the inking around the edges of the balloon focal point. What a great card!

  3. Great coloring/sponging on that image! You have one great masculine card there! Aren't those stamp shows fun?! Looks like you had a great find at your show!
