365 Day 110 & 111

The challenge on 365 Cards for day 110 is "My Guy" Pam wants us to make a masculine card, and use an ARGYLE pattern.
Cuttlebug spot:#35 Fathers Day/masculne , this is from the "fur babies" to their daddy :-)
Paper is scraps, sentiment is SU oval all set, the beautiful blooms and butterfly are from Leahs Etsy shop PaperBlooms, CB Argyle folder.

The challenge on 365 Cards for day 111 is "Say it With Stripes" Our challenge is to create a card with Bold Colors and Stripes. Such a fun summery theme.
*All the dots are in lines, and i scored lines to make stripes (cant see in the pic) so hope that counts !!
Sketch : Stamps and Smiles #20 (I love their sketches!)
Pile it On: #2 "Wraped Up" We want you to use RIBBON on your project - at least TWO DIFFERENT RIBBONS! You must, of course, combine with at least one other challenge!
*ribbon...yuk!! but I did manage to get two on the card ;-)
ABC : S is For Summer * Yep!
High Hopes Stamps: #35 Lotsa Circles *looks like a lot to me :-)

Paper is all scraps, CB folder D'vine Swirl, Digi stamp is a freebe from Dustin Pike
**I would like to know what kind of paper you all use to print digi stamps as i cant get reg card stock to look even when colored . thanks :-)

Beautiful cards Rose, I really like your Male card, I think I need to go and buy that Argyle embossing folder. Your second card is so cute.
In answer to your question on paper for digi printing - I use 200gsm presentation paper - I usually buy it in A3 size and cut it in half - it is a bit cheaper that way.
If you go to Pink Petticoat and Funky Fairys blogs/shops that also have the answer to your question.
I think Funky Fairys say to use Matt cardstock and then I think you do not need to print in photo mode and it saves ink.
Hope that helps you a little.

Great cards Rose!! Love that Argyll folder. It's perfect for blokes' cards (as you've shown so well). Love the bright and cheerful SAS card. You've done the sketch proud! Thanks for playing along and hope you'll be joining in again next week too.

Fabulous cards Rose!
The masculine one looks vintage and I love the embossing!
And the beach bear one is just too adorable with all the bright colors!
I can't help ya on the paper issue, I know nothing! Though I always blamed my bad coloring on me...who knows, maybe it's the paper's fault! lol
Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
Blessings, Maria
