Convention 2012 - Masculine Swap

Do you have difficulties designing masculine cards?  I do too, it's ok.  I think it has a lot to do with the supplies I'm drawn to and eventually purchase....they're girly!  So when I saw the Clockworks stamp set in the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue, I knew it would be the perfect (however long overdue!) purchase for masculine cards!  
Clockworks Stamp Set
#127290  Price: $28.95  (wood mount)   #127292  Price: $21.95  (clear mount)

I did a really fun technique on the clock face called faux mother of pearl.  I'm thinking you can't see it very well in these pictures, but I have some step by step pictures to show you tomorrow so you can re-create this look at home, and they really show off this technique.

Stamps: Clockworks, Best Dad Ever
Ink: Basic Black, VersaMark, Saharah Sand
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Saharah Sand
Big Shot: Argyle Embossing Folder
Punches: 1" Square, 1 1/4" Circle
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Frost White Shimmer Paint
All supplies available from Stampin' Up!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the step by step instructions on the faux mother of pearl clock face!  It's super cool!

Happy Stampin'
